Big St Germain is starting to freeze a little around the edges....(as of yesterday)....dark out now, so I can't see.

Lake Content is totally private.  The dam boards are in place so there is ZERO travel up the channel.....believe me, it's not an ice fishing "hot spot"

Lake Content is basically a large spawning bay for multi-species fish in the Spring.  There aren't many fish that winter in this lake and the ones that do are rolling the dice with oxygen depletion.

Hi All,


I'm new to this forum.  I'm planning on ice fishing Big St Germain early this winter.  Does anyone have experience ice fishing on this lake?  Could you recommend any nice spots?  I'm fishing with my sons and I'm not too concerned with species just looking for some action.

Also, any idea when we can expect enough ice for fishing?  I was hoping for Thanksgiving weekend, but that might be too soon?

There is no public access to Lake Content that I’m aware of.  The channel does not freeze so that’s not an option.

I don’t think you can access it.  That’s what I’m told (open water in front of the channel).  Unless there’s no snow on the ice, that would be a heck of a hike.  I’m guessing over a mile from Fibbers.  Later in January you could drive around, but no guarantees. 

Maybe someone will correct me, but I have been told (bro lives in St G) it is inaccessible.

Planning a trip for this winter for ice fishing.  Are you able to easily access Lake Content without renting a place on the lake?  I will probably be staying at Fibbers. No ATV so I will be walking.

i stayed at deer run it is a nice place but there's some bad things like no power at the water to plug your boat in, no running water in the fish cleaning house and alot of ants in the cabin
