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

Recommended Posts

fishingdad

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.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      What size  holes ?

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      I will be out on Blue on Saturday morning. ... see you out there

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.
