Red Sucker Bay Saganaga

8 posts in this topic

I have a friend who owns some property up there and was wondering what the fishing is like? 25hp max or is it inside the BWCA? What is the fishing like over that way? I was invited to head up there this June say around the 25th. Is this an area a person can get into lake trout or other trout nearby? I am considreing heading up there but know absolutely nothing about the lake. I'll have a place to stay and maybe a boat or canoe to use. Anyone have any suggestions? I was thinking the slip bobbing thing with a leech and pulling live bait rigs and or casting with raps to likely looking areas at low light. How far is this from Mike Berg and Seagull creek outfitters? If it is near enough I may have to just hire them and learn from the guys that do it everyday? Thanks for any input, his property appears to be in the far end of the bay from Rocky point.

You will pass Mike Berg's place a mile or two before you hit the landing to Sag. Never been on the Canadien side, so can't help you there. 25 hp limit on the Minnesota side. No horsepower limit on the canadien side. Sag Is a great lake. Definetly take your buddy up on the trip. Have fun, Junky......

Thanks FJunky, I will have to do that. Like I said, I have no info on this area so anything would be of help.

Contact Berg as soon as possible. He gets booked up pretty fast that time of year.

Another option, a very good option I should say, is Roger Campbell @ Gunflint Pines Campground. Rates are going to be high no matter where you go, but imo, well worth it. Give me an email tunrevir, and ask me some questions you would like answered, and I'll do what I can to help. kmaki16298@aol.com You REALLY need to get up there. lol Junky...............

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!
