Big Sandy Walleyes

4 posts in this topic

The walleyes were really biting last Monday before the storm and big winds hit. Alot walleyes and northerns were boated with the biggest walleye 5 lbs being released. All the fish were caught between 4-7 feet of depth. It's been a little later this year on the bite than past years, but the best fishing is yet to come.

Walleyes on this lake are scattered, I would suggest start on the deepest area on the lake and illinate water, trust your electronics, and work your way into the shallows.

This lake is a true river reservoir which means it stained, so bright colored spinners, jigs, and cranks are required.

I have rarely caught any fish when my screen is blank.

If you think fish are there trust the electonics and check it out when you mark something slow it down rig it or troll it, then once you have located a pattern slow it down and rig it and jig it.

good luck

      I'm pretty sure the old owner Jack still owns the property and leases to the landing. I live close and with an inclusive business plan I think it would do fantastic. When jack ran it the place was packed. The owner of wolf bay lodge told me his business tripled since the landing changed hands. There is plenty of demand for a fun place to go that treats everyone the same whether they are rich or not, local or tourist. I've owned a few businesses in this area and there aren't enough extra customers that you can afford to get rid of anyone. Why anyone would want to is beyond me.
