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...

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

    • Wanderer

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
