Sand Lake

6 posts in this topic

Looking for a lake to take kids for some panfish. Anything else is a bonus, but the kids are coming from North Carolina, so I need find some action for them. Anyone fished Sand for panfish? They would be coming in July. Thanks in advance for any help you can give.

do yourself a favor and hire a local area guide, for your best chance to get those kids on fish.

you can poke in the dark like most of us do, but living up here we get plenty of chances.

I'm sure there is a listing for the guides on here some where.

Thanks Jake, I appreciate your vote of confidence for both the lake and for our resort. As Jake said the action on Sand Lake is wonderful with many differenct species of fish. If you are looking for action for kids, pike are always biting. We do have a 22" to 36" slot on pike but you can keep 9 instead of the state limit of 3. The perch and panfish are also usually active to keep your reels warm. I also agree that it wold be a good move to hire a guide. These guys do some amazing things even when the bite is slow. A day on the water with these guys definately enhances the rest of your vacation and dramatically improves your opportunities to catch quality fish. I personnally recommend Jason Boser and the other Pro Guides at MN Fishing Pros. You can find them by going to my site where they will talk about fishing Sand Lake as well as fishing the area as a whole. There is also a link to their site from mine. Wherever you end up, have a great vacation!

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!
