first time on Big Sandy is it intimidating like it looks?

8 posts in this topic

Heading up Saturday for first time ever on Big Sandy. I have the oppurtunity to fish Big Sandy saturday for the first time ever and I am clueless, the lakemaster chip in the gps looks intimidating to say the least. I've read some of the earlier posts and it looks promising for crappies and walleyes. I don't want your gps points or anything like that and my buddy likes crappies and I like walleyes. 100% c&r on the crappies and a few walleyes for the pan would be great but where to start? if anybody has any info great and if not I understand You can e-mail if you want sue_steinman@msn.com I would be very grateful thank you fishingdad

I'd try to help ,but my pattern is not working with the cold weather we just had.

Try the prairie past the bridge on the right for slabs.

Eyes are usually in 7 FOW.

Try trolling lindy's with hammered brass spinners or chartruse spinners.

If all else fails ,find those humps on the main lake and slip bobber around them.

Yup, but now the focus is on bow hunting. The kid got a small one on Sunday night and Tony (Teds son) shot a huge 9 pointer on Saturday night. Me, no shots yet.

Funny with Ted being a non hunter how Tony has taken to it.

I have had him hunting with me since he was 12. I think he will be 25 now.

Cudoes to you Dale!

I'll bet he's one heck of an outdoorsman then.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man met me on the lake today and I showed him I am a skilled angler! lol we had a great fish fry! My old man only added one crappie and 5 gills to the bunch

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
