Big Mantrap is located two miles east of Emmaville in central Hubbard County. Big Mantrap has a surface area of 1,556 acres and a maximum depth of 68 feet. Big Mantrap is a diverse lake with numerous bays, island, and channels and has over 22 miles of shoreline.

Fishing Description: 

Big Mantrap is known for its muskie fishery, but also supports fine fishing opportunities for northern pike and black crappie.

Big Mantrap supports an excellent northern pike fishery. While not known for producing big pike (over 10 pounds), Mantrap has good numbers of northern pike in the 3 to 5 pound range.

Black crappie fishing is popular year around on Big Mantrap. Black crappie were abundant and sampled in high numbers for all gear types. While black crappie numbers were high, the number of larger crappie (over 10 inches) was low when compared to other area lakes.

Big Mantrap has an abundant bluegill and pumpkinseed population, however, size tends to run small. The number of bluegill and pumpkinseed over 7 inches is low.

Big Mantrap also supports a moderate largemouth bass population. Good largemouth bass habitat is found in the "north arm" around the islands and bays.

Smallmouth bass are also present in low numbers and tend to be found in the "main lake" basin.

Boat Ramp: 

There are two public boat accesses located on the lake. The more popular and developed access is located in the State Forest Campground on the "west arm" of the lake. There are two concrete ramps and spacious parking at this access.

The other public access is located on the "north arm" of the lake and has an earthen ramp.
