I saw a thread a while back about Big Balsam Lake. I am interested in trying the big lake myself. I would like a little information before I go. I will be taking a friend who is slightly handicapped and can't walk far. I don't have a 4 wheeler and prefer to walk out on the ice. Do you have to go far from the access to get some good crappie fishing on the lake? If you have to drive out, is there enough traffic to keep it safe with a 2 wheel drive truck? Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

Road King -

Give me a call anytime and I'll try to help you out as much as possible. May even have some others options for you.

The closest place would be just to the landing side of the island. It would be a fairly long walk.

We own land on the lake, and have been going up there for as long as I've been alive. We close up after deer season, but fish the lake a ton in the summer. The crappies are limited to an almost exclusive evening bite in the summer, although spring I do well all day. Many crappie fisherman fish right past the access bay, when it opens into the main bay, a few holes and humps, but I shy away from that area, I have my own spots. I have never fished there in the winter though, so I couldnt tell ya what the bite is like. Get some nice gills and lots of small pike, but forget about the eyes. Good luck

One more bit of advice. Contact Tony at the Balsam store (218 245 2340) and I know he can steer you towards some good spots.

Thank you for the help guys. I will be heading there real soon if I can get work out of the way long enough to get some fishing done. Balsam is a big lake to walk around and hope to find the fish. You have narrowed the search some. I appreciate it.

Backing up some advice. Tony at the Balsum store is really a great guy! I go a litle farther up the road for over 20 years now and always stop for gas and stuff because he is a great guy. He is a outdoors man and helps others. Tony knows me by face only because he is normally helping someone when i swing in. Great place to spend your money.I am not trying to advertize the store. I think he knows fish, deer and bear personaly.
