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

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this magic truffles and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.
