Big Lake

We had probably the best Becker Best Days this Saturday that we’ve had.  We finally hit it where Mother Nature was kind to us….thank you Madam.  Fishing was a bit tough at the lake but that has been the situation this whole Spring/Summer.  The fish are there and very healthy but are not quite as friendly as usual.

I hit Big Lake the following day with Tim for a few hours.  I landed five nice cutt’s stripping a small flashback bh pt.  Tim caught as many or more under an indicator.  The spawn is all but over and the fish are moving back out to deeper water.  Several of the fish I caught dropped eggs that were already starting to be absorbed.  Tim had the same experience.

The rains are pretty steady.  Monsoon is strong so far.  Let’s hope it continues.  It’s only going to help the lakes some…probably not much, but any new water is good.
