Big Fish Lake By Avon


Recommended Posts

I was out on Saturday with the wife & kids and they caught a 12" and 13" bass and a 17" pike. Not a whole lot of fishing for me though - I spent most of my time detangling and rerigging their line. smirk.gif

I was out on Friday with a buddy and did really well. We tried a variety of different methods and caught between 20 to 25 fish all over the lake. The most fun was using topwater. We caught two largemouths that topped at 16.5".

If you want to take someone out and keep them busy with fish then Big Fish Lake is the way to go. They're not the biggest but they are numerous. We went back out on Monday morning with a decent chop and managed 6 in 2.5 hours. The DNR was out setting nets on the south side. Must be taking the survey?

I was out again Sunday night/ Monday moring (we came off the lake at about 2:00 AM). And couldn't keep them off the hook.

Started out about 7:00 working the weed lines for bass, and pulled in 12 bass (largest about 18.5") and as the sun started to set we pulled in 3 northerns in the 18" - 22" range.

After dark, we switched tactics and started drifting and using sucker minnows under a bobber. Pulled in 12 more in about 1.5 hours and ran out of minnows, so we switched to trolling rapalas and the fish kept coming.

In total we boated 14 Bass (13" - 18.5") and 22 northerns (16" to 28"). Unfortunately neither of us had a camera. frown.gif But we had a lot of fun (until we both had to go to work Monday).

Great report....you say those bass came off the weedlines? How deep of water where you fishing?

I kept the boat at the break line at about 8 - 10 fow and we were casting back toward the submerged weedline at about 4 - 5 fow. Then, at we would near the emerging vegitation I was moving in and working the edges and tops of the lily pads.

Was out last night and did fairly well on the southshore fishing in about 20ft of water for bass. Everything was between 13"-17", good action between 5:30-7:30pm. After that it was pretty quite.

First time on the lake and was amazed how clear the lake is vs. all the other lakes around it.

      First open water fishing this morning. Planed to go to Clearwater but water was 6 inches over docks. Drove over to Sylvia/Twin and access was great. Water very clear, could see bottom in more than 12 ft.  Caught several sunfish and bass. 2 northerns and a crappie. Most went back including a 9.5 in male sunny. Beautiful fish. Most caught in less than 3 ft water.  Temp was 61.

      We are high up on the hill so no worry of water damage, but our electrical box wasn't too far from the rising lake water. I hope that issue doesn't start hitting others as well!

      I was up for opening weekend, but only fished Saturday morning. I had a limit by 6:30 so headed back to the cabin to get work done. In about an hour I lost 2 on the way to the boat, boated a 13" that I threw back, and kept a 14, 15, 16, 17. Nice size eaters. Jig and minnow in 15-20 FOW.  Water temps where I was fishing was 41.    I have damage to 2 docks and several trees down. I hope this water level goes down soon! Good luck everyone.

      I'm willing to buy this white shirt. It will look awesome with the juicewrld pants.

      Opener was decent on Saturday and absolutely on fire Sunday. 9 eyes, three over 25 in, one at 28.5. A bunch of largemouths, some crappie and perch and a TON of bullhead. One of those weekends where your hands start to hurt.

      I'm quite happy since I'm going fishing with a pal for the first time in a long time. We plan to purchase some clothing for it, such as exclusive hoodies.

      The majority of docks can't be put it. Water is over the top of pretty much every permanent dock.  Very few docks are in.

      Crappies are all up shallow in the south metro. Caught this one shore fishing with a beetle spin from a more secluded lake without much access. All of the crappies were between 7-9 inches with this 11.5" being the exception
