I don't remember the name of the bay. But it is the one on your left if you turn off of Hwy 65 onto bridge road.

Not sure where you are? Websters?

Anyway stop at Willeys and ask them you will drive right past their Marina on 65.

If your walking out your kinda limited so I would try to find something in at least 20 feet if your motivated drill a few holes and look for transitions or weed lines, a map would helpfull.

I like glow jigs on BS the water is stained so anyhting that can atract is good I usually use fatheads.

You may want to try some Crappie Minnows also you get lucky and find or hear of a place the slabs are at.

Good Luck!

Pier have you any luck on Big Sandy this winter? I was only up once and used it to fish Minnewawa smirk.gif

I did however get the sleds out ONCE this year - ugh.

I had 3 trips to Uppper Red to take up my ice time though.

Nope, have not been able to drive past Mille Lacs with the fishing so good this year! And with the poor snow conditions the only thing I'm missing is the Sunnies on the Lake connected to BS.

Can't wait for the opener on Big Sandy though!

Later Pier.

I didn't make it up there. A couple friends did tho. Not a bite. I know where the structure is around there cabin (actually a good drop off, good in the summer) but I am not so sure they hit it. I guess I can't feel too bad, it wasn't me freezing my arse off. Thanks for the tip PB.

Oh, they did stop for advise and was only pointed towards waxxie's, it that normal practice up there?

usually the staff at Willey's can do a little better than just pointing towards a bait...although they may not be 'right on' all the time either

This weekend... VERY VERY COLD!!! But did find crappies. 24 foot of water, either coming up off the bottom, or suspended 4 foot off. Biggest was 13.5. Not steady action, but enough to keep you interested. Lots of lookers on the Vex, but not nearly as many takers. Still had fun though.

Haven't been to Big Sandy for quit a few years for opener... I was just wondering if it gets pretty busy up there over the opening weekend to the point where all the major structures are pretty covered with boats, or if there still are some spots at the public accesses... Not that those of you who go to Big Sandy want yet another guy there for opener, but I was just curious...

Yeti-

Congrats on finding those finicky crappies. If I may ask, were you fishing the north side of Bell Horn Bay? Think I may head up there this coming weekend, and would love to catch some of those crappies. Any help would be appreciated!

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick

      Maybe the bamboozler will end up being like every fish story, some old timers holding their hands out as wide as possible to demonstrate to a youngster just how big it was....

      Fished a bigger lake, fish or at least the eaters are on the mid lake humps. Water Temps 68 degrees, freezer now has 6 total as I've been eating fish often. Tomorrow we chase the 30" walleye for catch and release.
