Kandi Comments

Recommended Posts

Guest

It looks like we need to start another message on opener comments since the one below this seems a little cluttered with other "stuff". We fished Big Kandi Sat. mid-morning until around 5:00 p.m. and again Sunday morning from 8:00 until noon. Caught a lot of little walleyes, kept a few 14-16" fish for the pan, with the biggest at 18". Overall fishing was OK, caught a nice smallie however; they are fun to catch and fun to see in Kandi, even though I am clueless how they got in there. Boats seemed to be congregated in the usual hotspots. Anyone try the sunken island? I didn't make it over there.

My two sons and i fished big kandi this weekend and all the fish we caught were very small. My youngest son is very addiment about measuring all of our fish. They were all from 9 inches to 12 inches. I was glad to see a few fish in the 24 to 25 inch fish class, caught and released on the lake. I had to laugh when we got to the landing some of the boats were keeping all of these small fish. One of the boats claimed they caught their limit of 15 and 16 inch fish he showed them to us and they were the same size as what we caught. when we walked away my youngest boy asked me if their ruler was shorter than ours. i just said no thats fishing. it will be a few years before he understands that statement. haha. we had a fun weekend on big kandi.

I cant help but sit here and laugh because I have seen and heard the same thing way too many times. I can go out and catch 20+ of those little ones and consider it skunked with nothing to show in the livewell, and the next guys are braggin about their limit of 15-16" fish. There are a lot of solid fish to be had out there though. I will be on kandi a couple times this week.

Bragging??? I don't think so, and we do measure the fish we catch. What is the purpose of this site if people can't share their success (or lack of)with others who may want to fish a particular lake. Most fisherman are liars except me and you and I'm not so sure about you!!

Ive been done for a couple weeks now. Cant help you with enemy, only fished pike out there late ice this winter, but guys I know out there have been having hundred fish days on waubay. Out of those fish 95% are 14-15". Not much different than this winter. If your looking for action I would head there.

With the big fish contest running I saw alot of fish come in on opener weekend, and yes some people have a measuring disability it seems, BUT there were some nice 2 and 3 pound walleys brought in...one walley over 5 pounds..(caught off a dock) If you can afford to buy LOTS of bait and sort through the little ones, the decent ones are there. The past 3-4 night the docks at the store have been pretty active, I took my 4 year old out last night and we caught 20 plus walleys...but only 2 that I would even consider keeping...which I didn't but the point is, my son loved it, and he thought it was pretty cool that he outfished his old man!! Sometimes getting your kids into it is better than catching a 10 pounder!!

What do you guys think is a good size to keep pike on Kandi? It seems like the ones my buddies and I caught on opener were getting a little stockier than the hammerhandles of the last couple years. Some looked downright tasty but all were released.
What size would be a good comprimise between meat and damage to the spawning pike population?

No disrespect of course, it had nothing to do with the site either.... The only pike I have heard coming out so far have been 7-8lbs, not abundant but havent seen much smaller latly. It would be nice to grow some 10+ out there.

J-Hawk,
I think you should throw all of your pike back and start eating some of those 4+
lb. bullheads you specialize in!

      Great video Curt, for as much of it that I could see. Keep up the good work, and one question, Are there any live emerald shiners around the Baudette area to be had, or just frozen ones?
    • eyeguy 54
      Its a little stiffer than my titanium spring boober and much more sensitive.  I like it  better than the 27 inch ul ticklestick. Only used 3 and 4 mm jigs so far. Thumbs up from me.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.
    • The Chemist
      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.
    • eyeguy 54
      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.
