Big Lake - Richmond area

Does anybody know what has happend to this lake in the years past? I grew up fishing it and know ALL the spots very well. I open up on it yearly. The last few years the eyes have been cigars with a few decent fish thrown in. The average is way down and the number caught per outing was not impressive. I know in the past 10 years the pressure has grown and in turn the fish have been harder to catch. Maybe I don't know ALL the spots anymore. confused.gif

I fish league during the summer and there were some decent walleyes brought in but not many. We don't fish eyes to much though. The lake continues to impress me though, every year we catch very nice bass with at least one at 20 inches, the northerns aren't bad, and we catch some really nice bluegills. But as for the eyes, from what I have heard, they are down, but they must have had a good reaproductive year about 2 years ago with all of those cigars. Good Fishin.

We fished this lake early last spring also. We did alright on the 'eyes but not as good as 5-7 years or so back. I do believe this lake has gotten ALOT of pressure the last so many years.. The bass are wild on this lake as mentioned. We will see what happens. I always try to get to new areas when I am out there, but then again the lake is only SO big shocked.gif

It gets a lot of hardwater pressure. Although most of the folks are fishing crappies then. The quality of crappies also vary a lot from year to year.

      Yeah, Chris. I was hoping to get some color. Unfortunately, bright pink was not the color I had in mind.

      Went to the chain on the boat did not get to far. No cats had a good time felt good to hear the Yamaha purr. It's sure moving the water that is.

      Exactly, a 5fish limit would do wonders.

      Thanks to all for sharing.  I also hadn't heard of this before. Regarding the cheeks, what size does the walleye need to be to make them worthwhile?  I never keep any walleyes over 20".

      There were trucks out on Isle Bay yesterday, and ALLOT of snow remains on the main lake. I think significant open water for the opener is a long shot at best.

      I haven't been here in ages. But I have fished Moonshine, Caribou, Trout, Little Trout, Wabana, Bee Cee (when it held trout), Lucky, Kremer and Nickel. So this thread caught my eye.

      I live on the north side of Cass on the Pughole. We had 30 inches of ice out in front of my dock yesterday. Pughole is the flowage between Kitchie and Cass. I'm 200 yards off Cass and the current is pretty strong there. Top few inches was pretty mushy. Nothing happening as far as fish yet. But they are coming. Jumbos move in soon. Also seen a truck out off of Star Island on Monday evening. I imagine they have more ice out on the main lake than I have. I'm for sure going to be out ice fishing through next week at my place. Ice hasn't even begun to pull from shore at my place.
