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.

      As far as I know every vechicle at every access has to pay a road fee .

      Was wondering what the ice conditions are after the rain on Monday?

      I use my 1660 Lund Pro-V Tiller for fishing Superior all of the time. I have 2' of track on both sides to hold my 4 aluminum rod holders and my triple trees. If you start using magnum dipsys with the ring they can pull hard enough to break most plastic rod holders. In the spring you are basically fishing the top 15' with plugs so any rod holder will do. Once you start trying to get to 40' and beyond is when you need to beef things up. I also have a mast and use the single big boards that Marine General sells for getting a good spread with you plugs. Once summer rolls around I will use Yellow Birds with 5 colors of lead on the outside  and dipsy's with 65lb Power Pro or steel depending on what depth I am trying to achieve to pull spoons or flies.

      I see that the Royal Dutchman website had a blurb a couple days (2/17) ago that said nothing was happening yet, they also don't know how thick the ice is.  As usual hoping for a long spring season before it closes for walleye.  On a positive note most of the snow must have already melted with the record warmth so maybe won't be so much to cause runoff later on?
