Saganaga next week, anything biting?

2 posts in this topic

Going up to the saganaga area next week and was wondering if anyone has had any luck there recently. What's biting? What's working? Thanks!

I was just up there with a buddy and his two kids doing a loop in the canoe, 7 days. The smallies were going nuts. Mostly on leaches either under slip rigs or jigged 6-12" off of the bottom. Found them on drops between 10 - 20 feet of water. Did best right off of shore lines with access to deeper water. Hit a number on trolled cranks. Didn't spend tons of time on Sag proper but the pattern held for all of the lakes. Walleyes and lakers were slow, but a few. Trolled cranks for them as well. Couple of big northerns.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
