Big Pine pan fish

Recommended Posts

TroyG

I will be heading up to Big Pine this weekend for a family vacation and would appreciate any advice on where the pan fish are biting. We will be staying at Olsons Getaway and would like to stay on Big Pine but if we have to try another lake we will.

What's Olsen't Getaway like? Is that on Big Pine. I will be staying for a week up there shortly, but my wife really needs (She thought we should stay at Arrowood in Alex) a clean place. Whispering Pines, Pair A Dice... Web sites (I have found the hard way) don't neccessarily mean a modern clean place, even with pictures.

Yes it is on Big Pine. It is just down from one of the public launches. We have been going there for about 5 years now. They have 3 cabins, they are all very clean. They are very nice. I think my sister in law has some pictuers I could e-mail you if you want. Jo the lady that runs it is very nice. I will try and get the # and post it for you tomarrow. From what I have seen they also have some of the best rates around.

I can attest that Whispering Pines cabins are also very nice (many have been redone in the last 3 years). It's the nicest resort I've personaly seen on Big Pine. I haven't stayed at Pair A Dice, but have heard the cabins aren't top notch.

Thanks guys, appreciate it. I have a couple of uncles on the la****, and promised me great fishing. They are kinda li**** "grumpy old men" for the family. I ended up booking "Pair-a-Dice" for the time, but I have another week the second week of October and will try then, (hopefully not closed for the season".

Hey Troy,

How was the fishing last weekend? what was the method for success?

The weather was nice. However, if anyone caught a fish Saturday evening on BP, chances are you snagged it and you were the only one!! The fish were absolutely negative.

The weather was beautiful. I'll be heading there next Tuesday. Hopefully the fish will be hungry by then.

      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
