Big Pine Lake Question

Recommended Posts

Bison9

Hey Guys, I have some questions about Big Pine. I am thinking about hitting this lake up tomorrow.

1.) With the recent rain and warm, is this lake still driveable?

2.) How do I get to this lake and what's the best way to access it.

3.) Feel free to leave any crappie catching tips you want to!!

You all can e-mail me with this info if you like at [email protected]

Thanks!

Hey,

i dont know if the lake is still driveable, but take HWY 10, and once u get past perham, theres a sign(a green sign on the right side of the road) that says Big Pine Lake, and u will want to take a left, i beleive the sign and road are right after the bridge that take u over the railroad tracks, theres a small house kind of on the corner as u turn, and theres one of those tall flashing red towers. but just follow the road, and it will bring ya basically right to the access, i havent fished here for a few years in the winter months, but i would say jig with a minnow or wax worm, ive always had luck on the glowing jigs, id say about 18-22 feet of water. good luck!

Bison --

We had to use the whole auger down to the gear case a couple of weeks ago -- I would think you would be fine.

We really caught some nice ones in 30 fow with the glow red buckshot spoon.

Good luck -- let us know how you did.

Yeah, I ended up hitting Devils yesterday. What a bust - had one 12 incher to show for it... \:\( One still cannot convince me that Devils is good during ice fishing. That's two times now I've gone during ice fishing and had terrible luck. Anyhow, I think I will be going to Jewitt again this weekend, but Big Pine may be a nice spot to hit next week mid week! We'll see. The only good part about going to Devils yesterday was that I was able to find the glow red buckshot spoon at the Casino bait shop. That's good because forget about finding one of those in Fargo! They're all sold out! Thanks for the responses guys!

Bison: I was out there a few weeks ago and I caught 2 crappies that were 13's. When we were out there we had to drill about 4 more inches with the hand auger. I think if we had minnows we would have done a lot better. I was marking minnows from about 19 to about 23 feet down and the crappies were swimming through the minnows like crazy. I hope this helps.
