Big Watab Trip!!


Recommended Posts

I'm coming to Big Watab in mid-January for a guys weekend "ice fishing extavaganza"!!! I havn't ice fished this lake in about 6 years, and any info would be appreciated. I know the lake is very clear and deep, but should I stay shallow or go deep?? I've been successful with summer fishing for Bass, but I would like to target some pikes, eyes, and trout? What do you think I should go after? Like I said any info would be great...I'll keep you all posted. Thanks.

Winter trout should be open by then, I beleive.

I have had limited success fishing shallow for the trout, 10' or less. A few people fish them deeper, might have to just try both to find out where the active fish are.

As for pike and walleyes, I have never had much luck out there in the winter for those species. I have had far better luck with gills and crappies, although they both run in the smaller side.

The lake is very clear water, if you have underwater cameras, bring them, they work great in seeing a long ways.

Good luck! grin.gif
