Kandi Comments

Recommended Posts

Guest

It looks like we need to start another message on opener comments since the one below this seems a little cluttered with other "stuff". We fished Big Kandi Sat. mid-morning until around 5:00 p.m. and again Sunday morning from 8:00 until noon. Caught a lot of little walleyes, kept a few 14-16" fish for the pan, with the biggest at 18". Overall fishing was OK, caught a nice smallie however; they are fun to catch and fun to see in Kandi, even though I am clueless how they got in there. Boats seemed to be congregated in the usual hotspots. Anyone try the sunken island? I didn't make it over there.

My two sons and i fished big kandi this weekend and all the fish we caught were very small. My youngest son is very addiment about measuring all of our fish. They were all from 9 inches to 12 inches. I was glad to see a few fish in the 24 to 25 inch fish class, caught and released on the lake. I had to laugh when we got to the landing some of the boats were keeping all of these small fish. One of the boats claimed they caught their limit of 15 and 16 inch fish he showed them to us and they were the same size as what we caught. when we walked away my youngest boy asked me if their ruler was shorter than ours. i just said no thats fishing. it will be a few years before he understands that statement. haha. we had a fun weekend on big kandi.

I cant help but sit here and laugh because I have seen and heard the same thing way too many times. I can go out and catch 20+ of those little ones and consider it skunked with nothing to show in the livewell, and the next guys are braggin about their limit of 15-16" fish. There are a lot of solid fish to be had out there though. I will be on kandi a couple times this week.

Cruiser, take it easy. I don't think wacker meant any disrespect.

Bragging??? I don't think so, and we do measure the fish we catch. What is the purpose of this site if people can't share their success (or lack of)with others who may want to fish a particular lake. Most fisherman are liars except me and you and I'm not so sure about you!!

Ive been done for a couple weeks now. Cant help you with enemy, only fished pike out there late ice this winter, but guys I know out there have been having hundred fish days on waubay. Out of those fish 95% are 14-15". Not much different than this winter. If your looking for action I would head there.

With the big fish contest running I saw alot of fish come in on opener weekend, and yes some people have a measuring disability it seems, BUT there were some nice 2 and 3 pound walleys brought in...one walley over 5 pounds..(caught off a dock) If you can afford to buy LOTS of bait and sort through the little ones, the decent ones are there. The past 3-4 night the docks at the store have been pretty active, I took my 4 year old out last night and we caught 20 plus walleys...but only 2 that I would even consider keeping...which I didn't but the point is, my son loved it, and he thought it was pretty cool that he outfished his old man!! Sometimes getting your kids into it is better than catching a 10 pounder!!

What do you guys think is a good size to keep pike on Kandi? It seems like the ones my buddies and I caught on opener were getting a little stockier than the hammerhandles of the last couple years. Some looked downright tasty but all were released.
What size would be a good comprimise between meat and damage to the spawning pike population?

No disrespect of course, it had nothing to do with the site either.... The only pike I have heard coming out so far have been 7-8lbs, not abundant but havent seen much smaller latly. It would be nice to grow some 10+ out there.

J-Hawk,
I think you should throw all of your pike back and start eating some of those 4+
lb. bullheads you specialize in!

      Anyone have any luck around stuntz bay seven sisters area lately?
    • jkrash
      I heard the guides are on to the walleye bite on the west end, finally the fish have returned and it appears there's a few good year classes.

      @Tom Sawyer Its not supposed to be that way.  Is it??  It stinks when everything else gets in the way of spending some time on the water. 😒

      I couldn't agree more Jarrid,  modifying the possession/ catch limits would probably help preserve and enhance the fishery. Several years ago when I was still living in the St. Cloud area, there was a lake outside of Albany that a  couple of year classes of Croppies came into their own. After  the increased pressure of both one hard and the following open water season  that lake saw, it was like  the Dead Sea after that.  Personally, if I find an active school, I won't keep my limit, just enough for a meal with the family.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....

      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.   
    • osok
      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)
