Sakatah Lakes

7 posts in this topic

What do you guys know about upper and lower Sakatah? Are these lakes worth looking at to put a lake home on? Are these the types of lakes that turn pretty green during the summer? I am still in the search to find my parents a place and just taking a look at some different options.

Thanks,I am looking forward to meeting you guys at the outing on the 6th.

I know theres not alot of fishing pressure on them. Any lake home is great. Excellent investment, especially in this area, where the city folk is wanting to move away from the chaos. Instant home value...so buy while its still at a reasonable price.

You can get to Tetonka from Sakatah through the channel so it's kinda like living on both lakes.

Downside to this would be you will have to cross a county road to get to the lake. Also, with most so. mn lakes, pretty green in the summer.

Just to add to what they said; Just about the whole southside of the lake is State Park.

It will get green.

You can get to Tetonka from Sakatah.

Not alot of boat traffic.

They're not lakes I would put a home on but the fishing in the spring and fall, at times, definitely has it's place on my calendar.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
