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

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..

      Hi all. I'm a newbie. And Iowan, but I love everything Minnesota. Ice Fishing is a short season here. I'm down by cedar rapids. Girlfriend and I are going to faribault this weekend to try some lakes. Any tips would be appreciated. I honestly don't keep many walleye back here, we imposed our own 17 in to 24 in all we keep standard. And it's helping the River in our area. At Least we think so.  Anyway, we're just looking for some good walleye and Pike action any bonus panfish too. If you could give us some legit pointers . That would make an awesome trip. Thanks again. Tight lines God too many beers . We only keep 17 to 24 inch eyes

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.

      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.
