Big Sandy Lake Fishing Reports

Recommended Posts

berfish

We caught some nice smallies on a couple of rock points. We had never seen any caught in the lake until this past winter when a buddy got two through the ice. Then this spring I got one on walleye\Northern opener. Then we went out fishing for them and we got 5 in a two hour span. They were all pretty good sized at 14"-18". Anyone else fish for them out there?

I was up there two weekends ago at the federal campground, and was catching smallies out of the river (by the dam). Caught a nice 19.5". Also caught a few nice walleyes.

Was very windy on the lake, so we fished the dam for the most part. Finally got on the lake and caught walleyes, some crappies, and NO smallies.

I love those colors on that sunfish.

They are all males as the spawn is almost happening. Caught a few females and they are ready to burst.

Hit it again today.

Ya know Tom I'd give up all of my spots if a guy would release these nice fish...but that ain't happening.

it also takes a bit of work to find them...then to have the spot fished out just like that....unreal.

Now I'm thinking to turn into a hider and if you want to hit some nice fish well a 300$ a day guide fee will be in order.

That's sad, because I know that there are some people that like your reports and pictures...I guess you can only show pics of the fish showing the bottom of your boat, and no background. Keep up the fishing though!!!

Looks like I'll have to vacuume the carpet now....LOL

Nothing in particular. Just seeing if anyones been doing any good. Hopefully ill be able come come up within the next week. But for sure for wild rice days. My granpa always has cars in the parade and car show. But i take it big sandy is the same old thing its always been; hit and miss and a really hard lake to fish unless your looking for small hammer handles. haha.

Sunfish for bringing up some little ones. Any particular crankbaint/color better than others to take some kids trolling for walleyes too? Thanks, Ken

      DLD I'll keep rigging as long is I can keep catching good fish but entering into August I'll start to pull leadcore more.

      Ace, honest question here with no intent to debate, just learning more about muskies. What surface temps do you consider to be too warm for handling muskies?
    • DLD24
      What are your guys favorite presentations this time of year? When I come up I've mostly rigged.

      Thanks Brian, the ratchet straps worked great.... quick, easy and secured it tight. I bought a bunch of big zip ties that it looks like I'll never use😀.
    • BrianF
      CigarGuy, cool pic. Looks like a good time/place for a cigar. lol. As far as securing your dock sections, some folks use bailing wire.  That’s what I use. Heading down in a few minutes to secure mine before the next storm takes sections away. Man, the water is high!

      Just got up here. Road construction sucks.....four hour trip took almost 5 hours.  Thanks Del, back end of the boat was out of the water last weekend. Do you guys use zip ties to secure the dock boards, big rocks or ?...…any good ideas?  This was supposed to have been posted last night.  A couple of ratchet straps and I'm golden. Molly the dog is helping me watch my bobber 😀 Two eagles and 5 loons, no fish!!

      Fished Big Pine Lake today. Original plan was to fish the Kettle River, but the rain took care of that. I had fished big pine from shore, below the dam, years back and done well, but this was the first time I’ve ever taken a boat out there. Nice lake...looked to be about 2 feet high. Didn’t catch anything until about dinner time, when crappies started chasing schools of minnows on the west shoreline. Caught about 50 of them. I just happened to have a small twister tail that was almost an exact replica of the bait they were chasing, and that was the difference maker. My dad caught a decent pike that went after a little crappie he was reeling in. Was disappointed we didn’t find any bass, but I’d come back here again.

      Saw one up Norwegian bay tonight with like 10 basketball size rocks.   Never had to do anything with my old dock since height was adjustable so got no advice there. Posted 3 pictures to be sure I got the right place.  Bits are (nearly) free
