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'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
