Started out the weekend to a Saturday morning downpour that slowed me down a bit. But was soon on my way to Crosby. I found the campsite with a little help from our local conservation officers. (thanks guys) I recommend that if you give someone a map put some kind of reference to distance! This was a northern pike adventure and proved to be all of that! It was hard to make it 50 feet without a fish on! It didnt take long to get our 3 and I left those guys to head back to big sandy for an evening walleye bite!
Saturday evening provided a ton of walleye action in the bays. Everyone seemed to be catching fish! I still havent replaced my finder but assume the water temp took a good rise witch increased the action. The key for us was 6 to 3 foot of water and rocks. Hammered copper lindys and watch out four the toothy serpents.
Sunday morning provide the same action just a different side of the bay.
All in all it was pretty easy to take a limit of walleye this weekend. I would assume with the weather outlook memorial will provide some good fishing!
A couple of hints on Sandy; most people our fair weather fisher people. If the weather conditions are not perfectly sunny the dont go out. 5 and 6 am is almost non-existent for 70% of the boaters. I did not see a boat Sunday morning till 9am. On windy days when you should be fishing the rough side most are on the calm side?
