o2 levels in sandy

Recommended Posts

i havent seen it but i have heard many accounts that all the white fish are dying in sandy. This is due to the lack of oxygen in the lake, so i am told, according to the "DNR" the levels of oxygen below 15 feet are soo low that the fish cant survive and are coming up to find oxygen, but being a colder water fish the white fish cant live in the warm water near the surface.

Now to the walleye fisherman, i ask? where have you been getting the fish, and would you maybe do better in shallower water with a jig and a crawler, or maybe trolling a rap?

Just some suggestions and i would like to know if the dnr really knows what is goin on . if they do all the fish in the lake should be above 15 ft of water. maybe worth a try.

thanks....and good fishing.

panfisher no disrespect towards you, but most of the post say 12 ft. or less. I was told by a 30 yr veteran of the lake,that he never fished deeper than 12 ft. anytime of the year.Just my 2cents worth.

I don't recall cathing many walleyes below 15ft.Most have been caught on some rock bars
out in the main basin in 8-12ft of water using 3-ways or bottom bouncers w/leeches.I have also caught them off of points with a bobber and leech in 4-6ft and trolling lindy rigs along islands in 4-8ft.

As you may tell by my posting name i am not much for catching the eyes, but i have heard tell of fishing walleyes in 18ft of water so i was intrested...

and it is also intresting that if they are right and there is no oxygen down there that ALL of the fish in the lake have to be up above 15 ft..

just a thought...thanks for the heads up...

On Big Sandy, if its deeper than 10 to 12 feet, I do not bother for the walleyes.

July 4th weekend every year, we typically to very good in 5-8 feet(if you are lucky enough to be out before the cruisers).
I saw the die off last weekend in Bell Horn bay. Stunk like hell in the entrance to the Prarie River. YUK!

      I know most of the bays have a couple inches of ice and guys are ice fishing. I would doubt the main lake is locked up but there could be some ice to deal with. Better off packing the boat away instead no huge warm up in site.
