Checking on any reports from the Sand and Little Sand area. Coming up in a week and just wondering if the eye's are in the weeds yet? How are the sunny's biting? It looks like the weather is going to hold out for a couple weeks, I Hope.

Thanks in advance for the info!

Just walked in the door from a week on Sand Lake. The fishing was SLOW!!! I did not see one walleye, in the cleaning shack, at the resort we stayed in. The sunnies were slow as well, but did pick up a few yesterday (perch as well). The little northerns were PLENTIFUL! The kids had a great time trolling around for them. Sorry for the poor report blush.gif ! We did have a great time up there though. I'm discovering its not all about the fishing like I think. smirk.gif Have a good time!!! Oh yeah, I almost forgot tongue.gif The kids caught a bunch of crappies right off the dock! Best fishing was by the little ones!!!!

The eye bite would be better if you hadn't caught them all this spring. I don't think there are any northerns left either after you taught my kids how to catch them.

How is your summer going. We have been busy no time for fishing. Christian caught 14.5" crappie out of an old sand pit a few weeks back. Its a great story. I could tell you about but he tells stories better then me.

Greet your wife & Dad for me.

Take Care, Ike

Ike,

Good to hear from you. Hope the family is healthy and safe. Tell them HI from us and give the kids a hug from me. We are going to be camping at the resort for only 6 days but I hope that we can find something to catch.

Hope to hear from you guys soon and take care of yourself and the family.

Brfive,

Thanks for the report. I hope that the info you gave will assist in my week of fun. If we can find the crappies that would be awesome. I think that there might be some 12 oz. wide mouth bass drank that week. That will probably make all of the little ones much bigger. Hope you guys had a great week. Thanks again for the info.

Thanks a lot,

Nukem

      Clifford, how is the slush out there? I have slush in front of my home and looking at sled tracks they are turning color also.

      Used mine for the first time this weekend and I don't think I've ever used a better cutting auger.  Even my wife wanted to take a turn after seeing me use it and she's never used an auger of any type before.  We had maybe 18" of ice (just a guess, didn't measure it ) and I cleared the shavings a couple times with just a quick pull up at it worked slick.

      1.22.18 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report Hello from the NW Angle! Minnesota walleye fishing has been consistent between 18-21 feet. The most effective method is on the dead stick set slightly above the jigging rod. 25-28 feet is also filling buckets with a good walleye and sauger mix, even the occasional jumbo perch. Slender and Tundra spoons have been bringing fish to the house. We have also seen numerous northern pike this week with the largest being over 42.” Canadian walleye fishing remain excellent, especially along points and reefs. Crappie action has been hit or miss. The bite has been better in the morning with anglers limiting out in the first few hours. Fishing deeper than 28 feet is important to get good action. Until next week, Sunset Lodge

      Moved house on Friday night in the dark.  Got holes drilled and let aired out.  Came back out after supper to fish for crappies.  Only small ones but had some action.  Got up early on Saturday and tried chasing tuilibee's and struck out.  Graphed a few but not a bite.  Switched back to the house around 8:30/9.  Buddies were near the house and had one crappie in the bucket.  Five of us fished till 11:30 without a crappie being bigger than 9".  Went back out after lunch fished till supper and nothing.  Came out again after supper got a 14" and 12.5" in 5 minutes and not a fish after that.  Sunday fished from 7 am till 11 nothing bigger than a 8" crappie.  Fished 3 hours Friday, 12 hours Saturday, 4.5 hours Sunday with only 2 crappies over 10".  Pretty sad but heard a ton of poor reports all over the area.

      Fished long point sat/sun morning... It was bad.  Had some friends fishing out of Borderview it was slow over there as well.  Tried all the colors.  Not very aggressive on the ones we did catch.  Had heard fishing was good of course on the days before sat.

      I drive by there 20-30 times per year on my way up north and always wondered what they all said.  Thanks for posting them.  With the warning sign "Danger No Trespass Injury Very Likely" and the barbwire fence around the signs, I would not enter his property if I worked for the US post office or UPS.

      We fished Wednesday afternoon.through Friday out of Zippel. It was not as cloudy as the weatherman predicted. Our best day ended up being Thursday. The two of us in our shack limited out by noon, most were sauger. Hot lure was a 1/8oz glow red shiner Tingler spoon and a plain red hook under a bobber. We were in 26ft
