Big Lasalle Lake

Recommended Posts

grouser

Anyone been fishing Big Lasalle this winter (Lake Itaska area); I've never been on it but the DNR report looks interesting. I'm spending the weekend by Bagley and am looking to get out for a little ice fishing. Thought I'd try Long for some Rainbows in the morning and am looking for a lake close to there to try for crappies later in the day. Any suggestions appreciated.

grouser, look to some of the lakes very close to Bagley for some decent crappie action. You don't have to travel far....

Matt, you remind me a bit of an old girlfriend years ago in college; she'd show a little leg and maybe wear a low cut blouse and that was pretty much it. Don't get me wrong though, I appreciate the veiled tip. Actually I get up to that area a fair amount but was thinking of trying something different; that's why I threw out the inquiry about Big Lasalle. The DNR report shows some interesting numbers but it also looks like a tough lake to fish for the first time (not a lot of unique structure); I was looking for some general comments on the lake, but not unexpectedly the guys up in that neck of the woods are pretty tight lipped. I just might give it a try anyway. Good fishing.

grouser, funny post, but if I remind you of a girl you dated in college we're all in trouble.... ;\)

I've never fished Big Lasalle, but feel free to shoot me an e-mail and I can point you to some lakes that are putting out, instead of showing leg...

Own a cabin in the area. I went up for a weekend fished lasalle the whole weekend not much luck. Had a couple nice 4-5lb northerns on tip ups, not much else.Try Itasca had some better luck on that lake.

grouser, got your e-mail, but couldn't reply, as your e-mail address wasn't listed...

As for your question about the lake you were asking about in the e-mail, yes, I've fished it, and it can be good. You'd be better of elsewhere however for numbers and size... It's loaded with hammer handles too...

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
