Big Pine Reports

Recommended Posts

huskiesplayer15

Was out at big pine for the weekend, and did extremely well, we released 48 fish over the slot from 18 up to one 26 plus inch fish, alot of little ones, fishing the breaks from 12 feet to 36 lindy rigging with long snells and 3/4 oz weights, this morning was slower then yesterday, we caught about 30 fish this morning but only had 5 fish over 18, but it was still a good day, we were using leeches and crawlers, crawlers worked great on saturday, couldnt buy a bite with them this morning. Overall it was a great weekend to be fishing, and I LOVE having the slot, we have been doing a lot better now that the slot has been in place, this lake can only continue to go up from here, there is a good forage base, we saw tons of little perch kicking across the water and some walleyes were even coughing them up as we brought them boatside. Made for a great weekend.

What does everyone else think about the slot?

you know where the clam bar is? south of there there is a nice little break from 8 to 36, the leaders were all about 6 feet long.

I too think the slot is a great idea. We fished it last week and had similar luck. I could take the family out and catch a bunch of little ones or go to a spot and catch fewer, but nice ones. My nine year old alone caught and released 3 fish in the slot. Man did he have a blast realing them in. I'm looking at buying some property on Rush and wish they would impose the same slot limit on that lake as well.

      DLD I'll keep rigging as long is I can keep catching good fish but entering into August I'll start to pull leadcore more.

      Ace, honest question here with no intent to debate, just learning more about muskies. What surface temps do you consider to be too warm for handling muskies?

      What are your guys favorite presentations this time of year? When I come up I've mostly rigged.

      Thanks Brian, the ratchet straps worked great.... quick, easy and secured it tight. I bought a bunch of big zip ties that it looks like I'll never use😀.

      CigarGuy, cool pic. Looks like a good time/place for a cigar. lol. As far as securing your dock sections, some folks use bailing wire.  That’s what I use. Heading down in a few minutes to secure mine before the next storm takes sections away. Man, the water is high!

      Just got up here. Road construction sucks.....four hour trip took almost 5 hours.  Thanks Del, back end of the boat was out of the water last weekend. Do you guys use zip ties to secure the dock boards, big rocks or ?...…any good ideas?  This was supposed to have been posted last night.  A couple of ratchet straps and I'm golden. Molly the dog is helping me watch my bobber 😀 Two eagles and 5 loons, no fish!!

      Fished Big Pine Lake today. Original plan was to fish the Kettle River, but the rain took care of that. I had fished big pine from shore, below the dam, years back and done well, but this was the first time I’ve ever taken a boat out there. Nice lake...looked to be about 2 feet high. Didn’t catch anything until about dinner time, when crappies started chasing schools of minnows on the west shoreline. Caught about 50 of them. I just happened to have a small twister tail that was almost an exact replica of the bait they were chasing, and that was the difference maker. My dad caught a decent pike that went after a little crappie he was reeling in. Was disappointed we didn’t find any bass, but I’d come back here again.

      Saw one up Norwegian bay tonight with like 10 basketball size rocks.   Never had to do anything with my old dock since height was adjustable so got no advice there. Posted 3 pictures to be sure I got the right place.  Bits are (nearly) free
