Big Spirit Lake

Largemouth Bass – Good: Fish are being caught under boat hoists anywhere around the lake using jigs, wacky worms, spinner baits. Fish the inside and outside edge of weed lines with Texas rigs, drop shots, swimbaits, or crankbaits in 8-9 feet if water. Smallmouths are hitting top-water along the west shore in the evening. Walleye – Fair: Local anglers are catching walleye around 7:00 till dark at the North Grade. Fish above and below the slot are being caught and creeled. Successful anglers are using jigging raps, bobber and leech, or just jigging a leech. Walleyes are also being caught along the weed line in Anglers bay in 16-17 feet of water. This weed line runs east to west and larger walleyes are swimming along this edge. Fish jigs tipped with a leech. Yellow Perch – Fair: Perch bite has slowed with only a few anglers coming in with more than 20 fish. More fish are starting to reach the 10 inch mark. Successful anglers are using blue and silver pilkies. The north and south ends are the locations to fish. Black Bullhead – Slow: The bullhead bite at the north grade is slowing. Creeled anglers are taking home single digits of 12-14 inch fish. Leave the worm on the bottom and fish around submerged vegetation. Northern Pike – Slow: Anglers using weedless frogs or surface lures in the north grade in the dense weeds are catching smaller northerns. Bluegill – Slow: A few bluegills are starting to show up on anglers’ hooks with all the rain lately. Anglers fishing the north grade are reporting catching a few 8inch bluegills.
