Mitchell/ Big Lake

Recommended Posts

Busdrivers33

First of all, anyone having any luck out there? Sure is alot of people out there these days.

The main reason about my post is that I have a cousin who lives on Mitchell. Right on lake drive or Hiawatha or whatever it is down that way. Anyway, theres some people that access the lake next to his shoreline, and in the past he has seen them throwing rocks and [PoorWordUsage] on the ice from shore. Know we don't know for sure who did this, but whoever it was left wood, cardboard, beer cans and 5 northern down on the shoreline. If your going to keep the northern, then fillet them, not leave them on shore. Along with your garbage, its pathetic. IMO some people shouldn't be allowed a fishing liscense.

It's an awesome lake - clear, lots of great structure and prominent weedlines.

I have lived in Big lake for 20 years and the fishing is nothing to brag about. everyone once and awhile i hear of someone catching a walleye or a few small crappies. I saw a picture of a guy who caught a 30" walleye about a month ago. first ice out I know a guy who fishes crappies and does pretty good with the size. some around the 12" range. unless you have a lot of time and a lot of beer dont bother!

yes, in general it's a slow fishing lake... not a bad thing however if like me you fish to unwind... and it's _really_ clear... I check clarity thru the ice with a weighted glowstick on a string... I could ever so faintly see it on the bottom in twenty FOW. I have got to get my aqua vu working~ \:\)

my aqua vu shows lots and lots of 4 inch bluegills. nothing any bigger or smaller, which disturbs me. I did see a couple of perch which I am glad to see.

      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.

      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?
