Sand Lake

3 posts in this topic

I am planning a two family outing with five kids under the age of six. We plan on doing a picnic type lunch. Does anyone have any suggestions to where I could park the pontoon on shore and enjoy a picnic lunch on Sand Lake. We will also try to catch a few panfish while we are on the lake, but I am sure the highlight for the kids will be the snacks and lunch!!!

I would suggest looking at the Big Island. It is now owned by the Forestry Service. I do not know how the weeds etc may be. There is a Sand beach on the east side that should work for a picnic.

When we do this we usually go into Little Sand and picnic in the boat- do a little fishing- put everyone in lifejackets and swim from the boat. Haven't found a good place to pull up, but would like to.

      thanks everyone for the input, we have decided to drive and take our own kayaks for the convenience. plus we can carry more tackle.

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
