Thanks for the reccomendation Sand Burr... I just booked our campsite at the CoE recreation area. Been poking around and looks like fun. The lake itself is pretty complex... not trying to steal anyone's secret hole but are there any suggestions of what to look for this time of year?

When are you heading up? There has been a pretty good sunfish bite and the crappies are starting. I will know more this weekend when Im up there.

I'll be there this weekend. I've never been there so I'll probly get a map of the lake and follow my nose like I normally do.

Is there any decent bait shops in the area of the north side of the lake?

I fish Big Sandy all the time....you can get a decent lake map at www.fishmbudz.com. As far as bait goes, I would stop off at Willie's Marine on 65...presume you are coming up from the Cities....

Good luck!

Willies is just before Big Sandy on 65 before the lake 1 or 2 miles. From the Army core take a look at a map out in the main lake and find some structure. You can fish those humps just like Mille lacs. You can also find a shore line drop down to 1mph and start trolling. Big Sandy is "River Water" so to speak so its full of everything!

We got back Tuesday...the COE Recreation Area is a really nice place! As far as fishing, we couldn't buy a bite during the earlier part of the day. Around 6ish, the fish came out to play! We caught some small (less than 12") walleye, some fat perch and a bunch northerns of every size. My son caught the biggest for the trip with a 28" northern. Oh yeah... and one largemouth that went about 5" ... hit a 3" Rap...gotta admire the ambition!

Thanks for the update, mantis270... I might be heading up there over Labor Day. Hopefully we'll get a few days of cooler weather to get the fish going, eh? smile smiley
