Big sandy?

8 posts in this topic

I'm heading up to Big Sandy this weekend and was wondering if anyone has been having any luck with the eyes. If so whats been working. Have they started keying on crayfish yet?

Thanks for any info.

Jim

I was up this last weekend and the mayfly hatch was going on strong. We caught a few Walleyes, but mostly really small ones. Hopefully the hatch will be done by this next weekend cuz I'll be back again for more.

90% of the BSL eyes are under 14",but the slabs are a different story if you can find them in the summer.

Crappies are biting? I'll tell you this I've fished the lake for 25 years now and I've only caught one crappie on BSL. I think i'd have a better chance in seeing bigfoot than catching another crappie on that lake.

Being out fished by a darn crappie, pretty sad! smirk.gif Any help locating them or tip from you guys would be appreciated. Otherwise I'll just keep my eyes open for bigfoot.

Thank!

The lake thermoclines, which pushes the crappies (and they are pretty nice) into the weeds. A maribou jig tipped with a minnow can be deadly. A friend of mine has been catching them on a regular basis this past week. I will add that he is an excellent jig fisherman!

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.
