Big Sand

5 posts in this topic

I have a high school classmate coming up this week and he might want to take his son to Big Sand. I don't need spots as I have fished it before but could anyone tell me if they have been getting any walleyes and what depth to start with?

We would be hitting it Wednesday and I will post a report if we do, in fact, give it a try.

Thanks

My buddy, his son and one of his friends tried Big Sand on Monday night. They caught a bunch of pretty nice bluegills and some perch but no walleyes. He had had enough of that so they came over here to DL and we fished Tamarack for largemouth. Thanks for your help though.

had a friend fish bigsand the other day and he caught four walleyes fishing deeper in 25-33 feet of water, all sloters tho. The high water temps might be causing them to move deeper, also had his best success with leeches

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
