Big Birch weed growth?

4 posts in this topic

I will be coming up to fish Big Birch in a couple weeks. When do the weeds typically show up on this lake and Big Swan? I would like to pike fish these lakes but I want to wait for the weed growth. Any tips for pike fishing these lakes. By the look of the DNR lake surveys they look promising.

If you want weed growth, try sauk lake. The weeds are aleady to the surface in areas.

I fish Big Birch at least once a week. The weeds are there. The big northerns are scarce but there. You will catch alot of smaller fish. If you want fun the lake is agreat smallmouth lake. Leave a few for seed. cool.gif

Thanks for the info. We like to fish smallmouths also. We like to pitch tubes and grubs. If you can give me any general info for the smallies it would be appreciated. We catch and release only for smallies.

      I was out there Wednesday and couldn't buy a fish. I fished two different pits and tried depths from 30 feet to 130 feet and everything in between. Marked one fish but couldn't get my lure to it in time. Second time ive tried in as many years and both times I got skunked. Using a small shiny spoon with treble hook tipped with waxies. Help!

      Fished out of long point  Friday 31 ft of water fishing wasn't fast and furious but the quality of fish was great with the biggest walleye being 18.5  three of my saugers were 16 in each. done by 2 in the afternoon with a limit. Saturday fished with a friend in same area. Was slower fishing. Maybe do to the wind which picked up quite a bit. We ended up catching 8 more nice ones with the biggest being 18 in. Very warm out  but the lake was in great shape!

      Spent all that money on shiners and suckers, and every fish I caught was on crappie minnows  go figure.

      Add a small ball at the end of the tail to add some water resistance.   Really adds additional action.
