Anyone fish Saganaga this past weekend?

4 posts in this topic

Just wondering how the fishing is going on Big Saganaga? My son and I will be on the big water mid week, his first trip to the boundary waters and I think anyone within 20 miles of us will hear his excitement when the boat starts motoring north from the launch. This is the most excited I have seen him in a long time, good stuff, just so I can get him on a few fish now, it all up to dad.

I just got back from there yesterday. The first couple of days were pretty tough. As the weather up there was real unstable. The walleyes were pretty tight lipped, didn't catch a one. We did catch a number of northerns and small mouth bass, and two really nice lake trout. The lake trout still seemed to be shallow. We caught them in 15' and 20' of water, on spinner rigs tipped with a minnow. I don't know what to tell you on the walleys. Good luck.

Just got back today. Ditto the unstable weather which really means cold front which meant slow fishing. The eyes have yet to hit the main lake reefs. Still in the warmer water bays. Look for 60 deg.+ surface temps, stay shallow, go slow, leeches or crawlers. Released 3 big piggies, kept only 4 about 18". Bass are everywhere and the toothy critters are snapping. Good luck. let your son catch the big one.

SO how did you guys do on Sag? I am headed up on 6/22 for a 3 day trip. I have either fished Sag early June or July, but never late June. I suspect from the posts that I have been reading that the eyes may be transitioning from the bays to the reefs by then. I am really curious though how the early June fishing has been.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
