Switch to minnows.  Green weeds and rock will hold the fish.  It has been a good year for walleyes on Big St.  If you really want to catch fish hire Rob Manthei.  I swear he could catch fish in a toilet.

Coming up Sept. 10th for a week of relaxation on Big St. Have been here before but usually in August and used leeches with slip-bobbers for walleyes. Not sure what to use for bait or how to fish walleyes in mid-September? Any help would be appreciated, feel free to message me.


Thanks, Ron

Will be up there beginning tomorrow afternoon for the week, first timer, would appreciate any info.  We are staying on Fawn Lake, have easy access to Big. St. and will have to see what the access is for Content as maps don't really show much.

PM is perfectly fine....I've got all the notes from Fishing Hot Spots and on here, and I'm expecting that it may be tough from what I've read with pressure and lake usage this time of year.  Also, preliminary shout out to Jason Pertile, who will be guiding a 3 gen charter on Friday morning somewhere in the area.  I found him through Lake Link.

Hey everyone, I am taking the family and camping/fishing this lake for the first time for a long weekend the 29th through August 2nd. Any one have tips they would like to share? I would like to catch some walleyes or smallmouths along with some panfish. Are fish in the weeds or more on deep structure? I would really like my kids to catch some fish so any help would be appreciated.

The walleye bite has been great this whole past week.  Myself, guests of the resort, and others that I have run into at the landing have stated that they are doing well.  Matter of fact, I've thought the walleye bite has been really solid for the whole season.  Jig and 1/2 crawler is the ticket right now

My father in law was born and raised in St. Germain and every summer we fish the lake for musky and between the two of us we'll get one in the 30s for every few days of fishing.  

Even though they live on the lake I like to try other lakes when we are up for the summer.  

I would like to learn this lake, but haven't really picked up any patterns over the years.  I'd be happy if I could find a few bass hotspots to hit for a bit in the morning or evening.  Usually don't have much trouble with that on the smaller lakes around here.

I've found this lake to be a tough one to figure out myself as well. I know some around here get some good stuff out of Big St., but I've not done well.
