Fished for six hours on Big Stone, Deer, and Dog today. Not a single fish and nothing showing up on the locator. Fished from 10' to 55'. My wife and I fished on Medicine Sunday evening, set tip ups and jigged. Caught 1 rock bass and a 4" walleye. Don't have a clue as to where the fish are.

Sorry for late report. Fished Big on 14th 15th and 16th . Caught a nice batch of crappies and perch. All fish caught in 18-24 fow on different rigs . Three ways with floaters , three ways with pain hook . jigging spoons with meat and lindy rigs. One member of the group even caught a 40" muskie . Drift with the wind and if you catch a fish throw a marker and go back and fish the area again . If your not catching them on what your trying ,try something new.great time to experiment.

Fished Big Lake on Friday. Lake still turning over. I launched out of Palmer Bay launch. Not the most ideal, but I had no problem doing it myself. Coming in at night takes caution as it is pitch black. Needs a reflector to spot it more easily. I saw about 6 boats out. Myself, well it was 5 hrs on the water with nothing to show for my efforts. The fish was much smarter than I. Crying

Need a launch report. I launched a few times this summer on the NW side by the launch off of N. Big Lake Loop Rd (the one with the nice parking lot). It was a chore getting my boat off the trailer on this launch and I don't believe the water level could have gotten any better with the lack of rain.

How's the launch on East side just south of Paradise Point? I know there are launches by the bridges on the North side as well but I don't remember there being much for parking.

Thanks. Hopefully the snow showers don't keep me from posting a report this weekend.

Heard a rumor that the ice is off. Just wondering if a local could confirm this. Also anyone willing to share any info. I am coming up opening weekend hoping to get some walleyes and crappies. So much water makes it kind of intimidating.

I haven't been on big lake, but on other area lakes the ice is going pretty fast. Unless the temperatures just drop off the chart, i'd be surprised if there was any ice in almost a month on opening day. It will probably be gone in three weeks.

Sorry for the non report could someone keep me updated on the ice. Im really worried it wont be gone by the opener. Just wondering what some of your opinions are. Should I be concerned?
