Big Lake off Echo Trail

4 posts in this topic

Just curious how the ice fishing is on this lake and if people drive vehicles out there or is the snow too deep. I was up a couple years ago in the summer and did well with walleye and caught a monster northern about 20lbs. Thinkin about coming up in march when it warms up a bit. Just curious how the bite is.

Kingsspade651,

I have a place on Big and there usually isn't too many people that fish it in the winter. I haven't been up this year yet but most years when I have been up the only tracks I see are from snow mobiles. As far as going up in March to Big to fish for panfish if I was you I would go somewhere else. You say you have caught panfish on Big lake but I have never heard of or seen anyone catch any. You might be thinking of a different lake.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
