4 posts in this topic

Got a friend that wants to go fishing thought about going to Shetek or Sara for eyes or crappies. Boat has been down all summer haven't been out or heard anything. Any info of late will help. If the're both "Dead Sea's" right now would like to Know, won't waste the time.

I am heading there this weekend with my kids and boat. I understand the level is low as all the lakes but does anyone have any suggestions on where to look and what to use. I am a MN transplant from NE and relatively new to this real fishing.

If you like catfish you are in luck. You will be at the right lake. Try any of the rock points. They will be marked with buoys. Nightcrawlers, chicken liver, prepared catfish baits all should get the job done. Good luck and let us know how you do.

Thanks, I would have rather got a few walleye but we did well with 6 cats in a morning off of Loon Island on night crawlers. Maybe we will try later in the year for a change. Thanks and have a great weekend.

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
