Drilled a couple holes about 10ft off the shore, about 5 inches of snow, 3 inches of solid slush, then 3 inches of really good ice. I’d still be careful going any further out

I was on the Rainbow yesterday and water temp was 54.5*. I didn't hear yesterday while I was at work, but I'll ask tonight if I talk to anyone on Big St.
Does anyone know about the water temp on the lake plan on coming up next week just would like a idea of the temp before heading up Thanks for any info
Another strong vote for the broasted chicken at Fibber's. All the food is good there, and it's a nice place to grab a cold beverage and watch the game after a fun day of fishing.
Thanks Mapper! Much Appreciated!
There are but you have to get past the bazillion 4-6 inchers. Last couple of years we have caught some 10-12 inch perch while jigging weedlines for walleye. Of course this is in late June not late September. Keep an eye on Kurt's Island Sports reports as you get closer. I would think Big St sets up similar to other lakes in the area this time of year.
Good luck. It is a great lake.
Also if it works out and your looking for dinner on Sunday night I would suggest the broasted chicken special at Fibber's. Was there a couple of weeks ago and it was very good.
Are there any decent size Perch left in Big St.? Coming up the 3rd week of September staying on the lake and would love to have a fish fry!Any recommended depths to try?
Coming up Saturday for the week. I'm going to be fishing with my 3 sons. They really would like to catch a musky. Was wondering what color baits would good on this lake? We've fished this lake in the past with some luck but any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Planning on coming up next weekend with my family, and never fished the lake or area looking for walleyes and crappies any advice.
51° - 55° F

Al got the biggest perch, John the biggest northern, Bill the biggest walleye (picture) and it was Tom’s home lake! These guys were a hoot. All manner of live bait worked well tipped on 1/16 oz jigs.
