Who's going to Big Stone this weekend?


Recommended Posts

For all of you that can't wait for opener, you can go to Big Stone lake this weekend for the SD opener, it's not that far of a drive. You can use your MN license and fish with two lines. grin.gif

I leave tomorrow night for Big Stone. It will be my first time on the lake, but we are heading out will a bunch of guys that really know the lake well...should be fun. I will be in a white Lund Angler 1700 SS w/115 HP Yamaha propelling it. If you spot us swing by and say hello...

Take care!

I will have to think about getting over there, but my little boat won't be able to handle much wind on that big lake.

I do believe we'll be there. Our plan is to head down Saturday morning and come home Sunday afternoon. We will be pulling my boat, a 1750 Crestliner FishHawk with an 80 Yammy Tiller on the back. Don't worry about the small boat. If the wind is screaming find some rocky shoreline, grab a lawn chair, and throw a slip bob or a slip rig out. Maybe we'll see you all on the water.

Yeah maybe ill have to try that. I am getting a bad urge to get out after something other than panfish. I also have relatives over in that area, so thatd be a good excuse to get over there.

Did anyone brave the weather and get out to Big Stone at all? If you did, how did you do?

      Yes indeed. We actually bought it together. We wedged the pontoon boat into that lift last fall and hoisted it out of the water. Unfortunately the water came up so much this spring, the pontoon couldn't float with the rising levels. There wasn't much that we could do opening weekend except wait for the water to drop and then assess the damage. It's mainly a garbage hauler so no big loss for a $500 boat/motor.

      I forgot to post this but I got a jake during season B north of Princeton on some private land.  I had been hunting this flock of birds for 3 seasons now.  I hear and/or see them every day, but simply could not get a legal bearded turkey to come within range.  Finally, a hen came walking out with a jake and I dusted the jake on the 4th day of my hunt.  There's plenty of birds there, including several mature toms, so I intend to keep hunting there in the future as long as I can obtain permission.  The weather was downright terrible.  I had one nice morning of sunshine and then it was windy, rainy, and raw for days.  Saturday morning even produced a heavy summer-type down pour.  I was so thankful to be hunting in a blind.  I also saw a fair amount of other wildlife in four days, including deer, pheasants, a pair of raccoons, and a coyote.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.

      Sizes caught matched most recent survey very closely - a lot of 12-14" fish with a few 15". Three to six feet of water against rocky shoreline at dusk was very productive. Fish still discharging milt. Should continue to be great fishing for next couple weeks along shoreline.

      Our group of 6 guys did pretty good. From Thursday evening to Sunday caught a bunch of crappies, 4 walleyes that were to big, a handful of pike and sunfish. One sunfish was 11". All on the west end.

      You did a lot better than us...  Did you mostly catch them in mornings and evenings or were you able to catch them mid-day also?
