Big C update

15 posts in this topic

I talked to a buddy who was out and did not have very good luck on Big C. He said he caught a bunch of snot rockets and that was about it.

Now there's a surprise. Sounds like just about everytime I've been on that lake, except you didn't mention all the flippin' rock bass. By the way, I am wondering if the Cormorant Classic is this weekend? Lots and lots of boats out there on my way to work last two mornings. Hopefully they'll get better weather than last year's tourney! It will be interesting to see the reports from the tourney.

Hiya -

So, guys that walleye fish in Cormorant, do you catch a lot of pike? Been meaning to ask... I fish smallies out there a lot, and I think I've caught one pike this summer out there. I'm mostly on rocks so maybe just that they're not there, but I've been surprised at how few I catch. Same with rock bass really. Catch them mixed in with the smallies on some other lakes I fish on, but I get very few on Cormorant...

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

Split my summer between Lizzie and Big Cormorant. I did get some nice northerns early, up to 8lbs on Big C. Mid summer I took some minnows out to one of the rock piles and got a bunch of northerns but they ran quite a bit smaller. rock bass haven't been a problem for me.

I haven't seen an issue with pike, but I have caught a lot of rocco's which is normal. I fish a little deeper in the summer and the pike tend to be closer to weeds. A lot of night trolling as well, and obviously no pike then. Haven't fished in 2+ weeks frown.gif.

I never thought it was an issue either until I switched over to shiners this fall and fished some wind blown weedlines earlier this week. It was insane...had many complete bite offs with fireline and still put probably a dozen of the them in the boat (but not for long). grin.gif

LOL!! Yep...darn little notherns drove me nuts that day. They weren't all shallow either....I had trouble with them as I worked a couple of deeper spots too. Oh well....it goes like that sometimes.

Hey Hit...send an email my way as I seem to have lost your work email add.

Been super busy with work, and late August-mid Sept. is probably my least favorite time to fish. The Fall transition period while I wait til the water hits the mid 50's. I'll be getting out more in the next 4-6 weeks and then it's ice fishing shocked.gif.

      1-18-17 Fishing Report. The fishing on LOTW remains fairly consistent in the last week with several Walleyes and Saugers in the 12.5-16 inch range being brought up the holes mixed in with a few larger sized perch,pout and tullibees in the 30-33 feet of water range. Meanwhile,in the 16-20 feet of water range the bite remains fairly steady with both smaller and keeper sized walleye and saugers being caught. The bite in both depths seems to not really pick up until around 10 am most days and seems to almost slow down around 4 pm. Live fat heads have been the bait of choice using a plain red hook or a glow in the dark pink or gold gem-n-eye on a dead stick,jigging a minnow has been effective as well using clam jigs or a demon jigging spoon or charmer with glow in the dark pink,green or hammer gold being the colors of choice. Heading into the weekend with the warmer weather continuing to move in we remind you to please,check with a resort,outfitter or bait shop before venturing out on the big lake as the ice conditions may change daily. We hope to see everyone on beautiful Lake of the Woods very soon!

      Wondering if anyone has been out on Christmas yet this year. Thinking about going this weekend and live a ways away. I know it is one of the later lakes to freeze up. Thanks in advance.

      It sounds like there definitely can be a worthwhile night bite.  The type of structure seems to dictate how good it can be. "Smaller" humps, or structure by itself seems to produce better then the breaklines along the numerous flats.  It seems "smaller" structure topping out 10 to 15 feet surrounded be deeper water is best.   Good luck, and report back.

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.
