Fishing Near Sah-Kah-Tay

4 posts in this topic

I am going on a family vacation with the in-laws the third week in August....So I plan to do some fishing. I'm no pro, so any help with locations and directions would be nice. I will have the nephews with I'm sure a couple times, so panfish is also an option. Thanks for any help.

You have a great spot right out in front of your resort. Look at the locator while driving straight out from shore, and once is starts dropping like a rock, turn around and fish anywhere from 7' to 20'.....there is a weed edge at the drop off and we used to catch everything from perch to northerns to walleyes. With jigs and minnows.

You can follow that weedline all along the shore, but I remember having better luck from around your resort to the north.

Good luck.

We have stayed next door to you at Birch Villa for almost 30 yrs now, and Commanche is right on.....straight out from the resort maybe a couple hundred yards is a decent area, especially from about 7-10pm. You will probably see lots of boats trolling there - we call it the "landing strip" - starting north a couple hundred yards and going all the way S to the marina sometimes (well, at least as far S as Cass Lake Lodge). And during the day, depending on the wind direction, you can start in about 10' and drift to 25' to cover a nice area. At this time of year I would be trying a jig'n'leech for walleye.

Just to the north maybe a couple hundred yards in the public "park" area, you will see on shore a green rooftop. It is just 4 poles with a green roof. We call it the "green awning". Straight out from there in about 12' has been a decent spot for us when we want to stay close to the resort. If we go out real early (before 9 am) we can be found anchored there using a slip bobber with a fathead and can come up with a mixed bag.

Another spot to try close to the resort would be Stony Point (which by not so much as a co-inky-dink is the name of Commanche's restaurant here in ILL). Some nice weeds in about 12' and we find it a good place to try for either perch, walleye, or pike with the occassional rock bass.

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later

      Lets say you have 1.5 ah batteries now and you drilled one and a half holes per battery. Unless that ice was 50' thick, have dull blades and your auger is 8, or bigger that's not a drill you want to put more money into.  So give us some info on your auger and how many in lbs of torque is your drill?
