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.

I talked to a guy that just got back and they cough a few on slip bobbers and leaches and the where big eyes. But no numbers shocked.gif.

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?

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
