2 posts in this topic

We are coming to Sand Lake the week of July 9th. We will be staying at Lakewood Lodge. Will be looking for walleyes. Any tips on Sand Lake would be greatly appreciated.

First, I would suggest you check out the topic titled Sand Lake Outlook in the Deer River, Remer, Marcell Group. There is lots of good info there from discussions over the last several weeks.

I will tell you that three days ago we had a strong thunderstorm come thru, two day ago we had 30 to 35 mph winds ALL day long and yesterday we had 20 mph winds ALL day long. Sooooooooo, walleye fishing and fishing in all has been a little slow last night and today. Before the t-storm came in a few days ago they were catching eyes on leeches and crawlers in 12 to 20 feet of water during the day and minnows on jigs in 8 to 12 feet of water in the morning and evening. We will need to give the fish/lake a couple of days for things to level off to see how fishing will be after these weather related issues.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
