Yes, I did do a bit of fishing this weekend. On Saturday, we sent out for about 6 hours and fished all the rockpiles and edges in the big lake. The walleyes were pretty spooked and we managed to catch a few, but they were pretty small and we tossed them all back. We did latch into some very respectable smallies and they were a blast. Also, at times, it was hard keeping the rockbass off the line, but hey... it's that time of year. I saw a 25" 'eye caught off the neighbors dock. We used primarly leeches with red or green hooks. We used bobbers or just bottom fished. Still... it was better then sitting here at work, eh?
Good to here you caught fish. I was wondering is Big Sandy weedy? I went to Minnewawa on Saturday and that was the weediest lake I have ever seen. They tell me that in order to take care of the weeds the lake association mows the weeds and that has made the problem worse by 10-fold. Any way I was just wondering.
Webdude I am sorry I didnt make it over that way..... I has specific instructions from the wife it was going to be a family weekend. My mother in law also came up. I didnt know that was going to happen. All in all it was a blast. I cant hardly imagine how many boats went through the narrows in an hour! We will hook up next time.
No problem, SB... The weekend at our place was pretty much a family thing too. I got about 6 hours of fishing and 20 hours of boat rides, watersports, etc...
As for the weeds, BSL really seems about normal to me. There are flowages that have a lot of weeds, but it has been that way since I was a kid. It's been quite a long time since I have been on Minnewawa so I wouldn't know if it was unusually weedy there or not.
Webdude, do you ever fish the flowage that goes up behind the golf coarse. I am not sure what it is called. I heard the walleyes are pretty much always there. Especially at night. Do you know if there is any truth to this?
