Big C update

Recommended Posts

I talked to a buddy who was out and did not have very good luck on Big C. He said he caught a bunch of snot rockets and that was about it.

Now there's a surprise. Sounds like just about everytime I've been on that lake, except you didn't mention all the flippin' rock bass. By the way, I am wondering if the Cormorant Classic is this weekend? Lots and lots of boats out there on my way to work last two mornings. Hopefully they'll get better weather than last year's tourney! It will be interesting to see the reports from the tourney.

Hiya -

So, guys that walleye fish in Cormorant, do you catch a lot of pike? Been meaning to ask... I fish smallies out there a lot, and I think I've caught one pike this summer out there. I'm mostly on rocks so maybe just that they're not there, but I've been surprised at how few I catch. Same with rock bass really. Catch them mixed in with the smallies on some other lakes I fish on, but I get very few on Cormorant...

Cheers,

Rob Kimm

Split my summer between Lizzie and Big Cormorant. I did get some nice northerns early, up to 8lbs on Big C. Mid summer I took some minnows out to one of the rock piles and got a bunch of northerns but they ran quite a bit smaller. rock bass haven't been a problem for me.

I haven't seen an issue with pike, but I have caught a lot of rocco's which is normal. I fish a little deeper in the summer and the pike tend to be closer to weeds. A lot of night trolling as well, and obviously no pike then. Haven't fished in 2+ weeks frown.gif.

I never thought it was an issue either until I switched over to shiners this fall and fished some wind blown weedlines earlier this week. It was insane...had many complete bite offs with fireline and still put probably a dozen of the them in the boat (but not for long). grin.gif

LOL!! Yep...darn little notherns drove me nuts that day. They weren't all shallow either....I had trouble with them as I worked a couple of deeper spots too. Oh well....it goes like that sometimes.

Hey Hit...send an email my way as I seem to have lost your work email add.

Been super busy with work, and late August-mid Sept. is probably my least favorite time to fish. The Fall transition period while I wait til the water hits the mid 50's. I'll be getting out more in the next 4-6 weeks and then it's ice fishing shocked.gif.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
