IowaEYES24 posted a topic in Brainerd, Aitkin, McGregor Area Fishing Reports - Hunting - EventsHello! I am taking my family in mid July to Big Sandy. I have never fished this lake before, I was hoping to get some pointers on how to fish this lake during this time of year. I really am not picky on what I put my family on, pan fish, pike, or walleye, whatever I just want to get them on fish. Any advice would be helpful! Thank you in advance.

Had to get a new user name, since I could not locate my old password and haven't used this site in a while... Anyways.... I fished Big Sandy last weekend May 22-26 (Extended trip since it was by birthday), and fared pretty well, only on the walleye side. Fished in 14 to 18 FOT, with live bait, jigs with fatheads and lindy rigs produced fish. Caught mostly 13-16 inchers eyes, along with some decent size perch. Locator was definitely needed, and just backed troll to find fish. Neighbor caught a 28'' eye. He wouldn't tell me where, although he said that was the only eye he caught last Friday, just a plain old lindy and leech. Purpose of the trip was to find the crappie slabs, yet did not find any in the shallows near pencil reeds, only small snakes took my jigs. I tired various locations on the lake from the northwest bays, to islands around "the pass", to bellhorn, etc... yet could not locate them anywhere. Only place where I found a 13 incher was washed up on shore near Davis Bay. Anybody have any luck with any pannies or crappies on BSL? Dont have to be specific... FOT? I wont head back to Big Sandy until June 13th weekend. Going to fish other lakes and getting ready for Muskie opener on the 6th!'' Good luck to everybody!
