Big Sandy fishing

Recommended Posts

fishbock

I have been looking for cabins on Big Sandy for a couple of years and decided to buy one which is in Goffs Bay just wondering what kind of fish are in this area; any good pike or walleye? Or do I need to go in other areas of Big Sandy for good fish. What parts of Big Sandy should i fish. I am new to this lake i have never fished it any tips will help.

The narrows is a good place between Geoffs & Maxwell.

Pike & eyes hang there.Come winter some jumbo perch & slabs can be found there.

It's the water that goes between the 2 bays.It really pinches down by W.Floe's island.

If you like fishing for pike, you will love this lake. They can be found just about anywhere close to the weeds. I use Johnson silver minnows and orange rapalas. There hasn't been a time I went out and havn't caught a pike and I don't fish for em. They would hit my orange bobber when I was reeling it in. Big lures mean bigger fish. You will catch alot of little ones but there are big ones in the lake. I've only caught two, 6lbs and 8lbs. Caught the 8lbs on a fathead. This is my first summer at eagle point campground. Fish shallow, 3-6 feet maybe a little deeper on hot days. Always use red hooks or bright lures as the water is really stained. Aktin Lake (which is connected) is where you will find bass and panfish, alot of them too.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't follow things closely, so I just found out about this last night. The Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade is hosting a pig roast fundraiser on Saturday from 4-7pm to support its operations. There are live and silent auctions along with stuff for the kids. Check it out:   http://www.lakevermilionfirebrigade.com/a-squealin-good-time-for-all-ages/ We are going to go.

      I’ve heard phenomenal things about the rivers, willhave to pull the kayak out and get on it. Thank you everyone for the feedback. I’ve checked out Clearwater, I really enjoyed it but lately it seems to tough for my 14ft boat to be stable out there on a windy day.  I’ve had success in Avon lately.
