Info on big sandy

Recommended Posts

Hello, I will be coming up to fish Big Sandy for a quick weekend, I fished it last year on Memorial day weekend with minimal success, partly due to the 40mph wind and the white caps. Any info on some nice spots or what to use would be greatly appreciated. This will only be my second time on Big Sandy and I know that there are so many islands and sand bars its hard to pin point an area. Thanks in advance.

Don't be afraid to try shallow. We've been getting walleyes as shallow as 2 ft off some islands. Lindy rigs with leeches or bobbers with plain hooks/jigs and leeches working the best. I'll be up there at least one day this weekend in a blue lund with a 50 hp yamaha and a Gamakatsu sticker on it. Feel free to stop!

Thanks for the info, hopefully this year the weather holds out. Its nice down here right now, but they are calling for rain, which won't bother me nearly as much as the wind. I'm not sure what we will be fishing in, usually im in an alumacraft with a 40horse tiller on it. Old but trusty, the trailer on the other hand had a bearing go out so we'll be using my friends boat, which is much nicer, but I'm not sure what it is. Thanks for the info, I spent most of last night making hammered copper spinner rigs and setting up poles for lindy rigging. Hopefully we can put some fish in the boat and stay dry.

      Water level is going down, but slowly.  My dock frame was 6" underwater last week and I can just see it above water today.  It's going to take time.

      My lil island front iron crib dock also under bout six inches. No Good! Lil higher than this time May 2008.  😮😮🥅🏒😮 No good to drop west dock for lifts as that would be under also n lift rails n pads be just but under water.  No Good! Marauder Boys miss the lake too. Happened before in my 26 years out there n will happen again so we just deal doing other stuff off lake n enjoy it all. Fun being a Shore Rat for shallow Crappies around home lakes. Bust a move n keep in the Grove. 🏒🥅🤩 We figure by anniversary June 12 th level drop enuff we sneek out in smaller Lund n fix up n open up? 🤩 Best of luck to ya but be safe. This lake is deeper n darker than you or I know…🤩 Big Smiles n Keep on Rocken! T    Did'nt intend to have pic so big....Geeezzz.

      We’re in the same boat. Actually I’d like to be in any boat. Our island cabin dock frame is about six inches under water. I hear that water is not rising which gives hope it will fall but I think Memorial Day is too optimistic, at least for us. You should think about other plans?

      looking to do some kayak bass fishing on Clearwater lake by Annandale. Are there any Other landings other than the one on the far south west end? Was wondering how the fishing is on the east end but that is a heck of a paddle. Appreciate any feedback.

      Water levels seems to be topic of the day. I'm visiting over Memorial Day week. Docks are not in on the island where I stay. Wondering if the water is going down? What do the rivers look like? Are they just pouring our water?? Is water level 6" lower than a few days ago?

      Finding plenty of fish around the area lately. Water on most of our area lakes and rivers is very high. Most of the panfish have moved from those back bay areas and are staging for the spawn. You can find the pannies tucked in the weeds right now close to those spawning beds. Casting small jigs without a float to pockets of vegetation or to outside the pencil reeds has been working well.
