Sand Lake ?????

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.

       I hope it warms up this week so I can get the boat out again.  Mice or squirrels or chipmunks chewed a beautiful hole into my live well hoses so I had a good leak going on but it's fixed now.    Now I'm just waiting for some warmer weather

      Cliff - why do they quit taking spawn when they haven't filled up to capacity, and the spawn is still active?  Years ago my dad was convinced that the DNR took adult walleyes out of Vermilion and transferred them to other lakes; do you think that ever occurred?  The hatchery is beneficial to Vermilion and other lakes, but why do they plant fry in lakes where they have no chance of reproducing?  Aren't there enough lakes where they can reproduce to some extent to plant them in?

        Well it didn't take long for "that guy" to show up.    It shouldn't be too difficult to understand why I'd rather fish for trout than buy them at the store...   Do they holdover though? I thought that was a lake stocked right before freeze up and then all but completely fished out after the Winter opener.

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff
