Union / Sarah pike fishing

10 posts in this topic

I've been out a few times in the last week and the fishing has been slow. A little luck with sucker minnows and a bobber on Sarah. Just wondering if anyone else has been out trying the area lakes latley.

While I was trolling Lake Sarah on Friday I saw something splashing on top of the water. When I went to go check it out I found a bass choking on a perch about half it's size.

You're on the right track, you already have it on a host site. You simply need to copy the "link" and paste it on your post. I believe it has two or three options as far as links go on the bottom of the Photbucket page, it's one of those, IMG or JPG, one will work, just copy and paste. Once you have done this after you make your post, it should show up as a picture before you finalize the post, when your on the preview page!

Hope this makes sense???

Cool picture, did you take the perch out and throw 'em both back? Did they swim off? That bass must have said, "I'm so hungry...I could eat a perch"...Nope, guess not?

Yeah, I took the perch out. The bass took off right away and the perch did swim off, but it looked a little hurt.

I haven't been up there yet this fall, but my family has a cabin on Union and I've found that fall is normally the best fishing time. What I normally do in the fall is get a frog on a hook and then put on a sinker about 1-3 feet(depends on preference) from the hook and cast out along shore and just slowly jerk & reel. Even when I've had extremely crappy summers fishing(like the past couple years) I've always caught northerns and bass this way during the fall.

Every chance i get, but the rivers are in northern WI and up the north shore of the big lake. Only fished the Red Lake River for a weekend this year, it's to bad. Steelhead are a crazy fish. You got to try it some day. grin.gif

      What does the Lake map chip run for it?

      Great tip Big A.  Was in exact scenario and picked one up myself.  Right after ordered the universal Lowr. pack from cabelas.  Had a 597 on old boat that sold, loved the unit for ice, excited to see how Lowrance is this time around.  Will sit next to the Garmin in boat for GPS, not a big fan of the Lakevu

      There are certainly areas on the West end of Vermilion that walleyes can spawn at. Quite a few years ago walleyes were tagged at the Pike River Hatchery and some of them were caught on the West end a couple of weeks later! So walleyes will certainly travel full length of Vermilion to spawn also! Cliff

      Walleyes are known to travel very long distances to spawn.  Lots of tracking studies done on other bodies of water show annual spawning movements of 50 miles or more commonly being made.  That puts the entire lake well within range for any given walleye that wants to make a long spawning run.   My question is this...are there spawning grounds on the West end of the lake?  Or, are most of the walleyes - includng those found most of the year on the West end - traveling to the East end and running up into Pike Bay to spawn?  Has anyone caught West end walleyes dripping in eggs or milt early in the season?   Brian

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely area that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff
