How is the best way for one to fish for smallmouth in Big Cormorant this time of year? I was thinking casting small plugs up to the submerged island northeast of the public access, but wasn't sure if that's where they would be this time of year. Any help would be appreciated.

Just got back from Big C about 10 minutes ago. Fishing was slow, like normal for that lake the last couple of years. We fished the spot you were talking about and had nothing. The best way to catch smallmouth on that lake is to find the bigger drop offs with rocks. Also there is a few spots that have rock piles that are surrounded by cabbage. Caught a 18 incher last year kind of by the access and I would believe that is big for that lake!!! Anyways hope that helped a little.

Thanks for the info. I agree with your characterization of Big C lately. I didn't fish it much last summer, but the year before was slow.

My brother-in-law and I were out on Sunday for a while and picked up a nice 15 inch smallie at the submerged island I mentioned when we were drifting those breaks looking for walleyes. That got the wheels in the head turning, which is a dangerous thing, and got me wondering if it would be worth going out looking for smallies this upcoming weekend at all. Otherwise we may try another lake and see what kind of luck we have. Anyone ever fish East Silent down by Pelican Rapids? The net numbers seemed pretty good for a small lake for walleyes.

      I have a Weboost cellular amplifier at Wakemup Bay. It increases the signal from 1 bar or less to 3-4 bars BUT there is more to the story than bars. For data (like streaming video) I get faster data speeds WITHOUT using my booster. The reason as I understand it is that cellular data transmits and receives on multiple channels simultaneously (its called Multi-In-Multi-Out or MIMO.) Most boosters only amplify a single channel at a time. While the phone shows a good signal from the booster it can actually reduce the data speeds that are available with MIMO transmissions. A booster can improve your voice communications while diminishing your data speeds. You might want to look at the Mobile Internet Resource Center on YouTube for a better explanation.

      57 in Black Bay and 44 in Niles Bay today.  The lake is changing by the day and the fishing reflects it.

      So sorry, wish I could boat over to help. I think we will wait an extra week to head north.  Prayers for a good resolution.

      Good morning Mtnman. Yes, the whole rainy lake watershed is under a flood warning. Water is as high as it was back in 2014. Forecast is that is should peak around May 20. All the ice went out last week with all the wind and rain we had. My dock didn’t make it though. Ice blew in and lift the whole thing, crib and all. Mother Nature…adds another project once the water is warm enough to work in. This week looks a little drier…I hope! Safe travels when you do head North.

      The water was over 22 at the very south end of Mud and the overflow pond. I took that route to get to the cabin, I just moved the signs and drove through, saw a couple carp sunbathing on the warm road. 😂
