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.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
