I have fished Big Marine on the opener for the past 5 years. I usually go on the west shore, near the Disabled Veterans Rest Camp (Nice place to launch if you are a vet, only a 5.00 launch fee and you can park right at the launch.) Work south along the shore to the channel into the bay. I can usually limit on crappies all over the 1 lb size.

Patriot, do you mean from the Vets. to just past Shady Birch Resort? I've never tried that area, and I grew up on that lake back in the day, but we did pick up a few by the GS camp today but had more bites from snot rockets and grass carp. HTB

Thats the one. I start out at the tip of the hook, the point just north and east of the camp. Work back through that little cove and then south along past the camp, run about 100 yds or less from shore. You'll see more action in the cabbage between the Vets Camp and the old Shady Birch area.

What are the crappies biting on? I might head out to Big Marine this weekend.

Hit BM this morning. Didn't make it down to the areas you both were talking about, but fished the west edge on the northern tip of the lake and didn't catch anything but a weenie smallmouth. Fished Fuzzy Grubs, Gypsie Tails & Mepps Spinners tipped with minnows.

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      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.
    • pikeandchester
      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.
