Big Clear Lake Visitor Comments

1.   I have been fishing Big Clear lake for about 12 years now and think it is one of the greatest fishing lakes in the Land O' Lakes Region. Although, the biggest Bass I ever caught on Big Clear Lake is only about 4.5lbs, the lake produces allot of quality 1-2lb Bass. I think over the years of fishing Big Clear regularly a couple dozen times a year, I have only been stumped a couple times. When I say stumped I do not mean I caught nothing, to me if you catch less than half a dozen fish, you are stumped. If I remember correctly the days I did only catch a few Bass, the weather was not in my favor. All in all I love Big Clear Lake and I will continue to keep fishing it for many years to come. I personally recommend Big Clear Lake to any fisherman who is looking for a day of fishing action and excitement.

2.   I have only been to Big Clear Lake around 5-6 times now and each and every time I went, the fishing was nothing less that amazing. I can not say much about the Bass fishing on the lake, since I have never fished for Bass here, I prefer to go for the Pickerel, also called Walleye to some people. Mind you while fishing for Pickerel I did catch onto a nice little 3.5lb Large Mouth Bass, well I think it was a largemouth it could have been a small mouth. To me all the bass big or small mouth look the same :). All I can say for the pickerel fishing is, one simple word and that is WOW. I am telling you the Pickerel on Big Clear Lake are plentiful and very tasty. I would recommend Big Clear Lake for great Pickerel fishing action and really tasty fish. I can not wait for my next visit to Big Clear Lake.
