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.

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
