Big and Little Chippewa

Recommended Posts


I am going to be vacationing in the Big/Little chippewa area in early September. (Actually on Big Chip.) Does anyone have any pointers? I don't want to end up spending 10 days on the water without direction, but time fishing is good time no matter the success.

Coming up from Sioux City, Iowa and meeting the inlaws....Would like to put the Father in law on some fish.

Thanks for any tips, or ideas.

By Sept. the bigger bass should have started to move shallow again... What a great time of the year. On Big Chip. you will notice alot of sharp breaks, find one with cabbage and start down it. South part of lake has a nice flat, which should produce some fish on shallow cranks, I like to toss the Strike King Spence Scout this time of year. Make sure to stop in at Alex. Outfitters and get the up dated infor on the area lakes and bite.

Wayne, thanks for your tips! I am certainly looking forward to giving them a try in a couple weeks. Is Bass the main species in Big Chip? I have nothing against Walleyes, Northerns, Crappie either, just looking to spend as much time on the water as possible. In fact, I warned my wife that her Dad and I may not be available for extended periods of time during the vacation. I will stop by the shop in Alex to get more info and bait on the way.

Thanks again!

      If you live on the lake from what I have seen and heard they put the boasts ok n when nobody is at the ramp checking. So much for the great inspection, no decontamination after leaving the lake, that's a major issue I see. So far I have not seen any of the inspection crew at other lakes. Nobody on Constance, Buffalo or South ramp of Maple lake.

      Has been pretty slow lately. One night you do decent then the next nothing. Very hit or miss.

      Aren't there some great spots along the Mississippi south of the TC? I'm not familiar with that part of the state but it seems I've heard things.

      Is the night bite going?

      I would surmise the slop bays across from the resort would be good for largies.  Crappies, next bay down from resort to the right of the point with the giant mansion on it.     Smallies, any rocky shoreline or rock pile, for example  Windsock Island and vicinity. Pike, various weedy areas mostly although I have never had much luck deep in the slop.      Maybe some of the folks who go the LOR will chime in.   At least you didn't ask where to catch walleye on the west end. 😊

      Went out Walleye fishing Saturday night and I caught this beauty. Measured 45 1/4" and estimated weight of close to 30#'s. Fought it for over 40 minutes. Caught on 6 pound line with a #4 hook. What an epic battle.

      Going for some largemouth on pike lake near duluth tomorrow if I could get some advice that would be nice. Never fished it before

      So island was kind of a bust when I went a few weekends ago. It could be the fishermen or could be just bad fishing

      I know all those areas well.  I'm a Parsippany~ish kid myself.  Traffic did suck when the commute was 40 one way- now just 5.5, all backroads. @Wanderer Hey for boat rentals a license isn't needed?  I have my NJ boat lisc, but doubt they'd honor it.... To ALL!  Thanks for all the replies and help here... sooo looking forward to the trip. I will  indeed look closer as the time draws nearer, and omg, I would love to be a boat buddy (we say boat b!tch), and consider this my "ask".. Thanks again fellas! Tight lines!   Mr Mayor
