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.

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
