Rock Lake/Sarah Report 6-30-07

6 posts in this topic

Nothing and nothing. Went to Rock for an hour and a half and never saw a fish landed between 10 boats. Went over to Sarah for two hours and saw a guy land a 13" walleye which he threw back and he had his livewell running so he must have had at least one keeper. Only action we saw at all between another ten boats.

Yep, I do believe it's over for SW MN until maybe fall. This seems pretty typical around here.

Sometimes Okabena will get a little mid summer run. Been pretty quiet there lately. Had a buddy get a 17" walleye there Friday on a Lindy rig in one of the dredge holes. Nothing to get excited about though.

Fished sarah friday for about an hour and a half and caught 7 walleyes. Couple really nice ones over 20. We kept four and threw the rest back. The best bite was right at noon. As soon as the wind went down we didnt catch anything so we went back to the campground. Tried Shetek that night for about an hour and never caught anything.

Must have been a Friday on some other Lake Sarah...or else everyone we talked to lied to us. Didn't hit plugs, bottom bouncer/harnesses, fireballs, or anything for us

One thing that has always put walleyes in the boat this time of year is the speed that I troll. Crainkbait tuning is a must and location really doesnt matter. I know others have the lake sarah trick down as well.

      It's been interesting. Like everyone, when you first discover these forums, you feel part of a small group and want to share everything. But then you realize the vast depth of the internet and how many people are actually seeing what you post. Then it's like whoa!  Once I saw the impacts first hand of what a popular thread did to a fishery it significantly changed my opinion on these forums. They are great, but tread lightly.   And yes, with the evolution fishing comforts, there has been an huge increase in pressure across the board. I just worry about lake trout the most because of the lack of info out there about them and the complete lack of management by the DNR. Every species seems to have a "group" pushing the DNR for increased management and educating the public. Lake trout don't have that. T.U. does a lot for stream trout, but nothing for lakers. Not sure where our trout stamp money is going anymore, aside for stocking rainbows and loopers. Seems there should be added attention on a few of the more popular lake trout lakes keeping tabs on them.

      Caught a 33 and 36" on the rocks this weekend. I've never been successful targeting them. But always seem to catch some here and there.

      Check out Raven Lake in Ontario. I've seen their ad in Outdoor News saying $240/week per person. I've been meaning to check this out and see what it includes as far as accommodations, boats etc.
