Big Lake

Recommended Posts

I live right next to Big Lake and have fished it some over the previous summer. All I have been able to find are a lot of small bass and small pannies. Has anybody fished this lake much and see any decent pannies or larger fish of any sort (other then carp)?

I've fished this lake very frequently during the winter. There are some nice crappies if you look for them. The sunfish quality has really gone down over the years. There can be some pretty decent walleye fishing as well. Lots of pike with some decent ones in the mix.

Get away from the crowds and do some exploring and you'll find more quality fish.

Good Luck!

There's a lot of nice fish in there, just gotta know where to look! But, I'm not giving out that info since I have a camper on Twilight Acres Resort. Gotta keep my honey-holes to myself ya'know! grin.gif

Which side of the lake is that resort on? Is that the one with the semi public access for boats and ice fisherman that you pay a couple bucks to use?

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
