Sag

6 posts in this topic

Just curious how the fishing on Sag has been the last 10 days? My group fished Sag over the 22-25 of June and the bite was one of the worst ever for us. I saw a couple of Mayflies while on the lake. Is there a chance we caught the beginning of a Mayfly hatch? Otherwise, any other thoughts on the slow fishing on Sag? It seemed like everyone was struggling to catch eyes and couldn't keep the smallies off of the lines.

I fished Sag all day Friday. 30 to 40 smallies, no walleyes.

Is there anything to the thought that the smallies are becoming dominant on Sag? A good friend of mine who has fished Sag for over 10 years thinks that may be exactly what is occuring. He says that the last couple of years have been terrible compared to the past. I know hawgs are coming out at a good rate, but has anyone brought home a nice stringer of eaters recently?

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.
