Big Marine Walleyes

Recommended Posts

I'm going there pretty much just for pike and bass, but maybe try for walleyes just for sh*ts and giggles. How has the bite been so far this year? What methods/locations have been best for them?

Are there even walleyes in Big Marine? I mean its a pretty big lake but I'm not sure of how deep it is..... I don't think that Lake holds very much walleyes if at all. Mostly a panfish, northern, and bass lake in my opinon but if you can spot and catch eyes in there keep it to yourself.

I know the DNR stocks it quite often, and I have seen small eyes swimming around the boat dock. The lake does get up to about 55 or 60 ft deep. I'm well aware of the great bass and pike fishing...never fished for eyes there before so I thought I'd give it a go.

I was out on Big Marine bass fishing on Sunday. That cold front totally gave the bass lockjaw. Manged a dinky 6 inch bass on a 7 inch senko lol! I saw a bunch of people by the island, probably marking walleyes? I'm a bass, crappie guy.

Yep, there are. My bro got a bunch last weekend, but they were small. We got a few biggies a couple years ago, but we haven't tried it hard, so not sure. But they are there, and they get big. Good luck,

My fishing partner won our companies fishing contest last year on BM (C&R). A 6.5# walleye put into first.

Well I got a late start to the day on saturday, didn't get on the water 'til past noon. By then you could see the thunderstorm off to the distance, I think that affected the fishing. All I could manage was 2 bass...my fiance caught 2 sunnies. Then the storm blew in and I headed to shore. Don't know how much total rain we got (or hail) but the bottom of my boat was filled. Didn't get a chance to fish for eyes. I'll be out of town all next week, but when I get back I'm coming back here for another crack at it.

With the inclement weather the big bass should be holding to structures deep, but then again they could be anywhere...

Big Wade and I went out yesterday early. Tried for some eyes around the island and didn't get anything. Started trolling and I got a small bass. We went around the south and west end trolling for Pike. Didn't manage any but Wade got a couple of bigger bass. Not a great outing for fish but it was nice to get to know another FM'er and hopefully go out fishing again. Was a nice day out so always a good time.

      Now that sounds like a plan.   
    • kelly-p
      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off. 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Hey Kelly can I fish of your dock opener

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
