Big/Rice/Deep Portage

3 posts in this topic

we are staying at a resort this summer on the portage chain just east of Backus this July, just curious on how the fishing is out there, i assume deep portage will be the best bet for walters. how is the panfishing? looks like there are quality Largies in there...

Stayed at Sandy Pines Resort on Big Portage lake for a number of years. Always went there in mid June and always did good on big sunfish. Some nice walleyes have been caught on this lake also right in front of the resort.  I tried Deep Portage a number of times for walleyes but its a tough lake to fish. Some nice size sunnys can be caught on the drop off when you enter Big Portage. Hope this helps. Enjoy the scenery....beautiful country..

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
