Big Sandy Action!

Recommended Posts

Moses2531

I went to Big Sandy this weekend and got a couple 'eyes jigging in like 15 feet of water... Did anyone else fish it, and if so, how did everyone do? Any tips on what I should do, I am taking a buddy of mine there this upcoming weekend trying to get him his first walleye... Any tips or hints or anything would be greatly appreciated!

My tip;

Fish MUCH shallower. I have never caught a Walleye in Big Sandy in more than 15 feet of water. Most of my fish come out of 5 to 10 feet, even in mid summer. That lake has shallow fish of all sorts.
Lindy Rig with a leech in the various narrows, points or sunken islands, and stay shallower than 15 feet(preferrably less than 10 feet), and you will catch one.

      The shallower lakes are froze over and the deep ones are getting close.

      I need to hit Linwood up as that is a lake I fished so much with my grandpa. Used to get lots of keeper gills and nice crappies and big pike out of there.

      Lakes around Princeton are froze over or close. Lori lake had the most open water and lots of ducks. Silver lake capped over and stanchfield south and north mist froze over.

      I saw enough ice on smaller lakes in the Crosslake area to know they are getting closer and colder to icing over!

      On the main basin... For those fishing the lake, fishing has been good.  Most bays and harbors locked up with ice this past week, which has put a halt to the open water fishing.  At last report, there are good numbers of walleyes and saugers staged in traditional early ice locations across Pine Island and the entire south shore.  With fish location, numbers and fall success, LOW is primed for good early ice fishing. On the Rainy River... The Rainy River is still loaded with walleyes.  Some anglers made it out this week but single digits locked up any water not moving and it is pretty much done.  Anglers that got out had big numbers of walleyes to reward them, similar to previous week.  Up at the NW Angle... Ice is formed in back bays, harbors, on the angle inlet, from Young's Bay to Flag Island and across most of Flag Island flats.  Larger stretches of water or current areas still open.  Ice fishing will be here soon, but not yet.  Stay on staked resort ice trails when ice fishing begins.  Safety first.

      I am a maki mino guy the 1 inch ones for gills and crappies. The xl mino is great for big crappies perch and eyes. I have used many of the maki plastics but I tend to have the best luck with white with red flakes mino. The poli was good as well.
