Welcome to FM!

The Big Bay area is a very good area for walleyes in August.

There are also plenty of other secluded spots close by that hold plenty of walleyes and pike.

ML,

If you want to get into the wallyes and northerns I would recomend Mr. Wagenbach as a guide. I have not personaly hired him but have heard very good things about him. He knows the lake very well as far as the walleyes go and will put you on the fish. I have a cabin on the lake and when I shoot the (Contact Us Please) with others his name always comes up. Hey Cliff with that endorsement do I get a free bevarage from you? Just kidding, hope to meet you some time. ML give him a call I am sure you will get your monies worth.

You generally don't get a lot of Pike while you are walleye fishing, especially on the east end.

The best Pike fishing is off the beaten path and you have to go fish for them specifically to get any real numbers, especially the larger fish.

The west end has better numbers of Pike, however the east end is known for large Pike and on some occasions very good numbers of fish over 35". In most cases, the trophy size Pike are found out in main basin areas however, you always have a shot at a big fish along the deep weed edges, points adjacent to weedy bays and rock and boulder flats around mainlake islands and saddle areas.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.
