The perch bite remains strong on Big Stone Lake. With
anglers focusing on the 11.5 to 12 foot range and getting
their bait of choice on the bottom near any one of their
favorite perch fishing spots!
Some fishermen are still using spikes on a Kastmaster,
Pilki or Shuck's Lure, however, there are many that have
switched over to using minnows claiming nicer, bigger
perch hitting their bait.
All the traditional spots are kicking out fish....Manhattan
Reef, GrapeVine, Bay View, Windmill Reef, Cramer's Resort,
on north up to SoDak and the Gray Barn.
Folks have been asking about walleye and I have to say
that we have not seen very many...however, our water
temperature is still hovering in the 70 degree mark. The
traditional fall walleye bite for October will start soon and
one will see anglers lined up along the shoreline casting
or pitching jigs for the hungry fish to come into shore and
they can set the hook!
