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

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff

      How do you fish for the cats on open water?

      Interesting point, BT.  I think our houses caught one perch this year, and I can't say that I knowingly marked one small one (except for when I was down in the bays on the south side).  I have no doubt that they are still in the lake, but I just ain't seeing any.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.
