Big K Campground

4 posts in this topic

Just Curious if this place is still around. My uncle owned it years ago, when I was a very young wipper snapper. Didnt fish back very serious, but the family pulled the pop-up camper up there many times. Also, if I remember right, their was a feeder creek off 169, and a lake behind it-rather small...any insight from the locals. Who knows, may need to bring the family up sometime.

Thanks,

jk

Yes it's still there and so is the creek between Hickory & Pine.

The shiners still run through that creek too.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
