Big Watab

3 posts in this topic

I am a college student here in St. Cloud and heard stories about lake trout in watab, wondering if they are impossible to catch. Never fished lake trout before and would have no clue on how to lure one in

There is indeed trout in Big Watab, although I am unsure if Lake Trout exist in there, rainbow trout is what we caught. It has been hit or miss for us, but we managed 3 one afternoon and it was a great time. Just used slip bobbers and a worm off the bar in the middle of the lake. We were in about 40 fow I believe.

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.
