It looks like you are not getting too many RE's.

Well, I will be out on Big Pine this coming weekend too. 2 of my friends from down south in Mn come up and we fish BP every Oct for the past oh, I don't know how many years, 10 or better anyway.

Many people on this board talk about pulling cranks out on BP. We, on the other hand have had real good luck jigging, and many times in the deeper water, very seldom less than 17 or 18 feet. You will want to get shiners or fatheads, whatever they have at the sport shop in Perham. Try to get your line as vertical as possible, very little movement is needed.Tiny little bouncing action right on the bottom. I am sure you will pick up many just over the 18" limit, you will get a few eaters too.

We have always stayed at Whispering Pines, and usually the only ones out there this time of year. If you ask me it is the best fishing ever. The colors, the sky, the quiet. It just does not get any better.

We (3 of us) will be in a Lund 1700 Fisherman black and gray w/a 115 Yami 4 stroke. Say hi if you see us.

Have fun

Hey, believe what 98ProSport is telling ya. They've got that fall pattern figured out on BR (kicked our tails a couple years ago).. We're actually taking off shortly for Big Pine as well staying until Tuesday, but we at Sunset Beach this year. See ya on the water!! If you see a blue Lund 1800 Fisherman with 135 Optimax give us a wave...

Last weekend Big Pine was slow for walleyes for us, but we did good on other lakes. Good luck

Well, we were on Big Pine Friday afternoon thru Monday. Fishing wasn't fast and furious for us by any means but we picked some fish (probably around 50/50 between "keeper size" and those over the 18" slot) including a pair of bookend 25.5 inchers on Sunday morning. Mostly working weed edges on fairly steep drop-offs. Things really went dead for us on Monday when it cooled down the the lake went flat..

All and all a great final trip of the year for Dad and I..

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
