LETS Big Pine Event

Recommended Posts

Guest

Looking to get some kind of head count, i.e. commitment from anyone that is interested in staying in a cabin or condo for this event.

Okay,
I just got done talking with Mike at Golden Eagle on Big Pine. The Cabins and Condos that they have are rented by the week. As late in the season as we are going he normally rents them out for a 3 day minimum. Because of the size of our group he is willing to go only 2 days but he needs to charge a little more because of the cost involved in turning them over to be used again. He is a really nice guy and seems more than interested in accomodating us.

Here's the bottom line deal.

Whether camping or staying indoors everyone will have dockage on Big Pine. He has a very nice access that we can launch on and space down by the docks for the weigh-in.

If you want to stay in one of the cabins it will be $18 per night per person. There will be no other charges. Anyone that wants to can also reserve a campsite and still have full use of all the facilies. Again this is included in your campground fee.

Me personally, I think I'll be checking into one of the cabins. When we stayed at Leech last year it was like $25 a person to camp for the two days. I think I will pony up $11 more and do it in style

What do you guys think? Please respond so that I can let him know what we need

Sounds like a good deal to me. Let us know the info as to what we should do for reservations.

For $18 per guy per nite, I would put us into a cabin. Count Dan P. and Eric S. in the reservation total. Be sure to let us know if you need us to do anything more (reservations, deposit, etc.). Thanks!

First of all I'm sorry that it has taken me so long to get back to everyone on this. After many phone calls, e-mails etc. I was not able to get us into Golden Eagle. Things just didn't work out.

Thanks to Jungle Shores Resort on Big Pine we have a total of 3 cabins locked up for that weekend. The five teams that replied to my original message:

Gullguide/Toad
Fishhead/Grabs
Dan P/Eric S
BFJ/MH
Clueless and Friends

are all taken care of. Two teams to a cabin.

Could someone from each team send me a check for $25. This is to cover the deposit and will go towards the cost of the cabin. Total cost worked out to $22 per man/per night. This allowed us to ensure that everyone was assured of a bed, not the floor grin.gif

I have attached a link to the address and phone number.

Guideman,

There are not that far apart, so I don't think it really matters. I can tell you that Golden Eagle hasn't exactly bent over backwards to make us feel welcome. Not sure how he's going to feel about doing a weigh-in there if only half of the group is staying there. He told me to call him a few weeks before we get up there and "we'll see how things stand then."

Paul, just for the record, my partner and I are not needing lodging for Big Pine. We'll commute or camp. Sounds like there's too many issues with the resort owners smile.gif

CD,

No issues really, Just them looking after their interests and me looking after ours. Sometimes they're not compatible smile.gif

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!
    • roony
      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.
    • tacklejunkie
      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?
    • gimruis
      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.
    • gimruis
      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
    • Mike89
      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..
    • Rick
      Good fishing in the Blue Earth river too. Also, a short drive to Rapidan can be productive.

      Welcome to the site @eg_gophers2124 I have never even seen the lake but these screen shots might help. Navionics Judging by the Lake Finder report, it’s a super clear lake; 17-20 foot clarity but with plenty of weeds. A couple shots of the weed report. Starting from scratch, I would head to the southwest area.  The southern basin has better looking structure too. You might do well simply working edges of the emergent weeds with spinnerbaits in low light and weedless frogs or spoons up in the weeds when it gets to be mid day.  Crawler under a slip bobber on the weed edges could do well also. It’s purely guessing on my part.  Hopefully someone with experience on the lake will chime in. Good luck!
