Big Sandy Accessibility

13 posts in this topic

I'm wondering if Big Sandy will be accessible come march 24? I'm hoping the shoreline ice will still be intact so I don't have to rig something together to get on the ice. Also, with all the snow will it be too slushy to be worth it?

Late ice on BSL rocks,you have to try it.Crappies and tullies.You should be fine on those dates for getting out.

It's definitely going to be a longshot if I make it. Technically I'm after whatever is biting, but I guess I'm especially targeting perch.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man met me on the lake today and I showed him I am a skilled angler! lol we had a great fish fry! My old man only added one crappie and 5 gills to the bunch

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
