Fishing Big Lake by Ely

3 posts in this topic

Does anybody have any reliable info about Big Lake in St Louis county? I am from Chicago IL and I am looking to book for an early spring excursion, you know, knock the rust off and get my fish on. I have been on the White Iron chain a couple of times and thought maybe sometjhing different this time. thanks

Post this on the Ely forum there has been a lot of talk about this lake on the forum in the past. Good luck. What kind of luck did you have on the white iron chain?

Every time I have been there I have been in the early spring. I have consitantly caught some of my biggwest Wallies there. I have hooked up with some really nice Northern and the smallies were abundant. My best smallie was a easy 3 pounder.

      with the current weather and the forcast for next week, we should have great ice by next weekend. be safe out there this weekend, ice just took hold on smaller lakes, the wind has kept things uneven.

      Down visiting in southern WI with family and our neighbors just watched someone go through ice and drown on a small lake near Lake Geneva. Everyone please be careful when checking ice!

      Has anybody gotten a look at area lakes? Any of them locked up yet ? A buddy said he seen a couple guys a little ways out on Bakers Bay and a couple guys on Eagle. Seems a little crazy to me. There can't be much more than an inch or two. Maybe a little more on Eagle since its shallower.
