Big Marine???

4 posts in this topic

How is the fishing out there? I live on forest and I am going to bring a buddy fishing and he asked about big marine. I have fished it once a long time ago and actually don't think I caught anything, but would like to give it a try. We are catch and release guys we just go for fun. Bass, pike, walleyes, and crappies is what we fish for. Any tips for this lake? I have a H20c with the 07 lakemaster chip.

You'll find lot's of bass and pike in there. And compared to forest, there is alot less boat traffic. The bass tend to run on the small side, but there is potential for some bigger pike. I did really well with jointed rapalas along the weed edges earlier in the year.

If ya want to soak a sucker 8" or larger we always did really well off the long point on the north side of point in 30-35 ft.a small hump.

Cast spinner baits and you will get the pike pretty much everywhere. For bass, look either in the thick weeds or on deeper points. The water is pretty clear on Big Marine, and I think the crappies and walleye tend to stay in a little bit deeper water than you would find them on other area lakes.

      I took my kids for a monticello outing yesterday, but my boy spiked a fever on the way so I had to abort mission.  Tried a little shorefishing at home this afternoon in Brooklyn Park. I tried spoons, jerkbaits and ringworms. No action.

      Heading to Grand rapids on Wed. Any chance a guy can drive back in the woods with a car??

      Palmer lake is good for sunfish (and it's kind of a pond), but it's been getting hammered this winter. I'm worried about the pressure it's been getting. I wouldn't mention it here, but word is clearly out already. There are a lot of great options to try around Eagan. That's where I do most of my pond fishing.  I live in Brooklyn Park now and have had a tough time finding good fishing in ponds/little lakes up this way. Might have to give the clay hole a try
