Big Sandy Help

Recommended Posts

MNCPRGUY

My son and I are hoping to meet up on Big Sandy this weekend to do some ice fishing. Neither of us are from the area or have ever fished this lake. Are they driving 1/2 ton trucks out? If not, is there decent fishing withing walking distance? I do not have a wheeler to pull my rather heavy portable with.

I would appreciate any advice offered. Access points, species to target for reasonable action, general location, depths, or bottom structure. Not looking for coordinates or secret hotspots. Just some info to get me on the ice and get started.

Thanks in Advance,

PJ

PeeJay- No 1/2 ton trucks yet, just wheelers and snowmobiles. As for walking out and fishing it depends on how far you want to walk. Not too many spots within a block or two of the landings. We're catching some but the bite has been a little on the slow side.

down in Bellhorn Bay you could probably walk out to one of the fishing areas? I havent been up yet this year so cant say for sure.

Head for the access between bellhorn and the big lake and walk out on bellhorn that will get you into fishy waters within easy walking distance. If you head on the big side it's around a mile walk to were I catch them. You could try Rat lake I know it has produced nice eaters in the past but it's been years since I'v been on it.

I have heard a few reports about bellhorn this year. Nothing spectacular but people are getting on some fish. Like Archery said, if you go out that way, it is a little bit of a walk, but you should be able to find some fish. I know there are a few guys out there with their permanents right now. Just find them and try to find a ridge or some structure.
