Sunfish

4 posts in this topic

I hit this lake three times last year. I got a few slimers thats about it. We marked alot of fish but couldn't get a bite... Just wondering if any one worked it at all first ice or this summer.

That lake got the three strikes you are out rule from me. Went there a few times in the summer and they say that Sakatah is the bullhead capital, doesn't hold a candle to Sunfish. Worst part was that the bullheads were all like no kidding, 6-7 inch fish and you couldn't get past them to get to anything else. I do hear though that it has good bassin on it, although I have never tried that myself. Perhaps I hit it on three bad days, but I don't know, to many other options to check out in the area to sit out there.

I think it froze out in 2001 2002. But Before that we would Slay big Crappies, big Perch, few Big Sunnies, And a ton of Northerns. But scince the they have stocked it realy well you just can't catch a bite. I loved that lake back in the day Through the Ice me and Buddy in 2000 pulled out a 37.5 inch norhtern and a 6 lbs. large mouth. I won't give up on it yet. I'll give her another go....

        Oh, says the guy that just took the plunge! I'm sure it will do your little pan fish ok. Let me know if you need a few Walleye's to try?

      I had a battery op Repala a few years ago and sold it to someone else at our campground. Didn't like the way they just zipped through without following the fillets and lost a lot of meat. Really suk's on a partly frozen fish!   Mine came with a case.
