Sugar Lake by Glen

A friend and I will be up there next weekend (6/23). We will be targeting bass and northern and maybe some walleye. I've never fished this lake before and would appreciate any information on these species. Is it decent?

Thanks, Coach Dog

My family has fished there often...2 aunts on the lake, and I know there's been at least 5 wally's over 10 lbs out of there, my dad has 2 of them on his wall! And 3 yrs ago I caught 7.75 lbs largemouth from a dock!

Fish the "saddle" between the holes and cast to the docks around the lake.

Thanks igotworms! Do you suggest any patterns to try for walleyes? I'll be sure to report how we do. Are there any other reports out there?

I wish I could help you.

I have not been on that lake for 35 years.

If you want to hit some other lake in the area give me a shout.218-845-8801

Drag shiners or redtails over the saddle, or my dad's favorite was to slow-troll the biggest sucker minnows he could get. Good luck

Over the top of the saddle or sides or? Shiner on a jig or lindy set-up?

Drift or slow troll from one drop-off to the other.(You can get a simple topo map from dnr website)

Jigs or lindys work, just have to try both and see what happens. Maybe try Gulp grubs...

      Hi Wanderer, I am going up this weekend too.  Glad the weather will be warm! I will try a different pit this time, but had good luck last year.  I hope the fish will be active and hungry.

      Thanks Rick! Jeff hope to make it always a good time and laughs when you get a group of great people together. I usally do more jaw jacking  then fishing at these things but for me its just as much fun

      I will donate a few goodies. I will send it to @Tom Sawyer if he messages me his address.

      Lol! Smurfy  Its not as easy to identify areas like the old days the ice towns in Mertens bay and in front of Steils old house on cedar island aren't there like years of past but she's still the same chain that you grew up on. And IMO better than when we wee younger. 
    • Wanderer
      @Roscoe010 I wanted to head that way yesterday but my fishing partner didn’t have that kind of time.  If I get there this weekend, I’ll let you know. Or hopefully someone else knows and will reply.
    • smurfy
      i'm considering going out sat to chase walleyes, cats or crappies................OK whatever will bite. whats frustrating is i live 5 mile from the chain, grew up in richmond and all these maps have me confused??????????
    • DonBo
      Toying with the idea of heading up there Saturday morning. Only been there a couple times, never on the opener.
    • JBMasterAngler
      Anyone go out on the opener? I usually wait a week before heading up there, so curious to hear some ice/fishing reports.
    • Roscoe010
      Did any of you check out the pits for winter trout opener last weekend? Thanks!
