Here's what the experts have to say about fishing on Ball Club
Lake. "Renowned as an excellent panfish lake, Big Ball Club also
provides some nice northern pike, hefty walleye and big largemouth
bass. The lake has a reputation for producing crappies in the
1-1/2 to 2 pound range and bluegills in the 1 to 1-1/2 pound
range. Trophy walleye are available with the average fishing
going 2-1/2 to 3-1/2 pounds. They are usually caught by working
the various points and other walleye structure, including the sandbars
on the south end of the lake. Try working off the large point
(Cook's Point); the Ball Club River outlet; and the creek on the
southeast shoreline. Action heats up in June with minnows being
the preferred bait earlier and leeches later in the summer. Northern
fishing can yield some 3-1/2 to 20 pound-plus fish with an occasional
muskie. Shoreline dropoffs along the lake's cattails are
productive as are the weedbeds near the sandbars on the south end. For
largemouth bass and panfish, try working the bulrushes and
weedbeds. Ball Club's sandy bottom and deep, cold water provides
excellent tasting fish year round.
UPDATED; Spring 5/18/13............. BALL CLUB LAKE.
" Ice Off" on the lake came on May 14th. several days after the state fishing opener.
Current water level is good with the surface temp in the upper 40s.
Fishermen are reporting fishing as "fair" at this time for most species.
Warming weather will greatly improve the fishing as the water moves into the 50s during the coming days.
I will update this report as conditions change and
I always share GPS info and trends with my customers.
