Big Sandy fishing

6 posts in this topic

I have been looking for cabins on Big Sandy for a couple of years and decided to buy one which is in Goffs Bay just wondering what kind of fish are in this area; any good pike or walleye? Or do I need to go in other areas of Big Sandy for good fish. What parts of Big Sandy should i fish. I am new to this lake i have never fished it any tips will help.

The narrows is a good place between Geoffs & Maxwell.

Pike & eyes hang there.Come winter some jumbo perch & slabs can be found there.

It's the water that goes between the 2 bays.It really pinches down by W.Floe's island.

If you like fishing for pike, you will love this lake. They can be found just about anywhere close to the weeds. I use Johnson silver minnows and orange rapalas. There hasn't been a time I went out and havn't caught a pike and I don't fish for em. They would hit my orange bobber when I was reeling it in. Big lures mean bigger fish. You will catch alot of little ones but there are big ones in the lake. I've only caught two, 6lbs and 8lbs. Caught the 8lbs on a fathead. This is my first summer at eagle point campground. Fish shallow, 3-6 feet maybe a little deeper on hot days. Always use red hooks or bright lures as the water is really stained. Aktin Lake (which is connected) is where you will find bass and panfish, alot of them too.

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
