Big Lasalle Lake

7 posts in this topic

Anyone been fishing Big Lasalle this winter (Lake Itaska area); I've never been on it but the DNR report looks interesting. I'm spending the weekend by Bagley and am looking to get out for a little ice fishing. Thought I'd try Long for some Rainbows in the morning and am looking for a lake close to there to try for crappies later in the day. Any suggestions appreciated.

grouser, look to some of the lakes very close to Bagley for some decent crappie action. You don't have to travel far....

Matt, you remind me a bit of an old girlfriend years ago in college; she'd show a little leg and maybe wear a low cut blouse and that was pretty much it. Don't get me wrong though, I appreciate the veiled tip. Actually I get up to that area a fair amount but was thinking of trying something different; that's why I threw out the inquiry about Big Lasalle. The DNR report shows some interesting numbers but it also looks like a tough lake to fish for the first time (not a lot of unique structure); I was looking for some general comments on the lake, but not unexpectedly the guys up in that neck of the woods are pretty tight lipped. I just might give it a try anyway. Good fishing.

grouser, funny post, but if I remind you of a girl you dated in college we're all in trouble.... ;\)

I've never fished Big Lasalle, but feel free to shoot me an e-mail and I can point you to some lakes that are putting out, instead of showing leg...

grouser, got your e-mail, but couldn't reply, as your e-mail address wasn't listed...

As for your question about the lake you were asking about in the e-mail, yes, I've fished it, and it can be good. You'd be better of elsewhere however for numbers and size... It's loaded with hammer handles too...

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
