Who wants to go to BSL on Sunday?

Recommended Posts

fishuhalik

I'm heading up to Big Sandy on Sunday early morning (4:30-5:00) for a full day on Sunday, going mainly after tullies but maybe a crappie or two. Any takers? I live in Plymouth and we can take off from my apartment, meet somewhere on the way, whatever works. I'll cover most/all of the gas, if you wanna throw in $10 I wouldn't turn it down. I have a ford contour, so I can fit 3-4 full-size guys in my car somewhat comfortably, w/ gear in the trunk.

Dude, I wish. I was up there last weekend, and wouldn't mind at all. Still recovering from the hangover, though.

I wish I could say yes to that but I wouldn't know if I was able to go until Sunday. More fixing cars this weekend so I won't know if I could go until I am done repairing stuff.

Had some of the best panfishing of my life. Caught almost a dozen sunnies over 9, and 1 over 10"plus some crappies (3 over 12") mixed in. Worked the north shore from the Big sand bar. The guy we were with knew where to go, but I will say we were a ways from the crowds. You'll catch a few crappies in the crowds, but look for a spot at the base of the break in around 20' of water on the north shore, and you'll do OK. If you dont mark fish in the immediate area, DRILL MOVE DRILL MOVE DRILL MOVE. The key is to find the unpressured fish and pick them off. THey're getting hit pretty hard, and are getting a little skittish.

I will do that. It really would be awesome to get outa town for a day so that would be sweet. Plus I got a smoker now and tullibies are great smoked. I will let you know when I know. Gotta fix Mom's car first so that will determine the weekend for me depending on whats wrong.

midcoast, it depends on the day. I've done really well on jigs that a guy on here makes, I can't mention his name since he's not a sponsor, but they're tiny, tiny hair jigs (1/80th & 1/100th oz.) sometimes with a waxie/spike sometimes just plain, no maggot. I've also heard of guys that do really well on small pimples, diamond jigs, fiskas, etc. If they're not eating sometime, keep switching til ya find the trigger

Feathers Rainin

Fishaholic I have a shack in McGregor and I was thinking about going up and hitting a trout lake near there Saturday and hit BSL on sunday. If I don't go up tomorrow or Saturday morn I would love to come up and hit the ice with you Sunday or we could just meet there on Sunday. If you can we could do both days and stay at my shack. Shoot me an e-mail if you have an interest and we could figure out a plan. [email protected]

feathers, I may be able to take ya up on that, only problem is I have to watch my son at least most of the day on saturday. I'm gonna try to talk my sister into watching him in the evening, my wife's working, and we could maybe head up then. That way we wouldn't have to wake up at technically 3:30!! I'm emailing you my number, call me sometime this evening, after about 7:30, I should be there. If I'm not, just leave a message and I'll call ya back.

Well I am gonna swtich gears and do some open water fishing instead this weekend so I won't be going. I usually ice fish until the bitter end but I feel like standing on solid ground and catching a cat.

      Got on a pretty decent bite this weekend.   Lots of quality eating size fish 14-18" mostly,  a few bigger ones.  Fish were in main basin steep drop-offs in 20-30 feet.  Crawlers and leeches were working.  Weather was beautiful all weekend.  Can't wait to come back up in August!

      We did okay in Frazer over the weekend. Some nice 15's and 16's and tons of the smaller walleyes. For some reason I usually catch the smaller ones clean, but I throat hooked a ton this weekend. Just couldn't feel their bites, so I'm guessing they had plenty of time to try to swallow the bait. 17-22 worked best for us with Lindy's and seemed leeches outperformed crawlers about 2-1

      Water is pretty high on Vermilion for this time of the year. We were up over the weekend and got another 2 1/2 inches of rain!

      After a long 13 days straight of work we got out and did a little fishing!  Felt AMAZING to get back out on the water.  We chased panfish Saturday evening and pretty much struck out and went Sunday with the old man and got into a big ol mess of panfish.  Buddy of mine opened up his jig company in Vergas, MN and it's called Panfish Pirates, check him out on facebook.  Hes got a soft plastic called the Kraken that I have never seen before and boy did the fish eat them up!  We didn't use any live bait during the 6 hour trip out fishing and we landed hundreds of gills and crappies.  We landed 6 gills that were 9.5" sadly we couldn't find any big crappies even though the girlfriend lost one at the boat that was over 13".  Fish were on the edges of the weeds either lilly pads or down in the cabbage.  This Kraken has 3 legs behind it and it has natural bouyance within the plastic and it allows the jig to be swam through the weeds slower which was key yesterday.  Dad was in the front of the boat and a few times he had to stop and put his rod down because his arm hurt from fighting the fish and a few times his finger tips were hurting from taking the fish off of his hook but regardless he had a blast fishing.  We used 6 mm jigs tipped with the Kraken pitching from 4-14 feet of water.  Few times we were vertical jigging and my big blue gill pictured below came vertical jigging in about 12 feet of water.  All the gills were returned safely and only 6-7 crappies were taken home for dad to have a fish fry.  Pike must have been starving because I had about 6 blue gills get attacked by pike at the boat as i was bringing them in!

      We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot.👍👍     Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      Ive been out a few times as well..have tried from the harbor all the way up to boyscout...have been getting a few everytime out but has been slow for me....been trolling crawlers with big colorado blades..have caught fish on flats by barkers,between the bridges,and out from clyde area....got 6 cats accidentally while trolling boards by the community hole south west side of spirit lake...water clarity still sucks in the harbor..a bit better the farther up river u go...has it been kinda slow for everyone?????ive been doing better on fish lake.lol

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.
    • delcecchi
      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.
