I am new to the area and have been out trying to catch some fish am having no luck. We hired a guide and spent a pretty penny and came back with 11 fish. Are there any fish in the so call spec capitol of the world and if so what I am doing wrong? Should I fish a high tide or a low tide, am or pm, open water or marsh? So many questions. I grew up perch jerking and bass fishing around Blind River so this is all new and I'm struggling bad. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello- I have many trips to Big Lake with few fish to show for it. However, we still go and learn more each time. The oyster reefs, weirs and black lake are some of our best spots. Keep trying. Wind really affects water levels in lake. 3 ft in the morning may be 1.5 ft by the afternoon. We caught these back in Early March..

Tough Lake to fish but once you learn it, it will pay off. I have been fishing there for over 10 years and have caught and released some really big Trout. Go with really well name Guides over there, they are the ones that will put you on fish. Do like we did. Got a guide and tell him all we wanted him to do is to take and show all the reefs and spots that are good and that is what he did in our boat. Best thing we ever did and then we just added to it over the years.
