Sugar Lake by Glen

7 posts in this topic

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...

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
