I am planning a little trip up to big Sag this June and am having a really hard time finding a good contour map of the lake. Can someone please help me and let me know where i can order one, or something? I was able to order a good detailed section of just Red Rock Bay, but that was it. thank you very much for any help.

Rip-n-lips, welcome to HSO/FM. Great to have you here. grin.gif

I share your pain. I'd like a good map of Sag, too.

I assume you have looked at the one on MN DNR Lake finder and not found it unusable. But if not try this. Map

Thanks, upnorth, but the map doesn't show the whole lake, and that's what we're looking for. grin.gifgrin.gif

redhooks, I don't like those plastic maps because the scale is usually such that the fine points are eliminated, but that may be all there is.

A buddy of mine got one about a month ago at Gender Mtn. It is made by Lake Maps but a much larger scale--the detail is pretty good. He said that it was the last one but maybe they re-ordered.

Thanks, lakerunner, I'll look into that.

I got the last one at Gander in Duluth, buried in their map section, faded, and had been there a while. It was made by the same company that makes the white cards and produced in 1996.

It shows the entire lake including Canadian side, with depth contours. I tried finding it on the web, but maybe they don't make it anymore. I too was looking for a good map for quite some time...best $3.99 for a map I've spent.

stfcatfish--I don't know the original size of the map though as he brought in a copy that he had blown up to 11"X17". We are also planning a laker/walleye trip up there in late July. We'll probably be down in the Red Rock/Munker Island area but we still wanted a map of the entire lake. Looking at it the map looks decent--rock piles marked, breaks/points, 10' contours. It will definitely be better than nothing!

I kinda figured there was something not quite up to snuff, but figured it may have been over looked. Can blame a guy for tryin \:\)

Just thought of this and checked W.A Fisher maps. I am looking at what looks to be a full map

Here is the info and and pic, might be what you are looking for.

Let me correct myself--the name of the store is not "Gender" Mtn but Gander Mtn blush.gifcrazy.gif I was just informed that perhaps I was being a little bit of a sexist pig ;\) But I don't know--I didn't state the "gender" being male or female!!

Thanks again, upnorth. I have that map. Doesn't help an angler looking for contour and underwater structure detail, though. grin.gifgrin.gif

Worst case- You can buy the white cards and the cheesy folout version at Bucks and Holiday gas in Grand Marais before heading up the trail.

Frank, the Lake Maps map already mentioned that was the last faded one at Gander is the only contour map I've seen of the whole lake. I've now seen a copy of it. It's definitely workable.

Question is, is Lake Maps still making them?

They may still have them. Could be a phone call is in order to see, or if they don't have them, maybe they have plans to produce them again.

It'd be a simple matter of making a new printing press run since they've already produced them.

Ha Ha! Since I got the last one, maybe someone would take me fishing up there and I could share the map with them? STF? ST? Anyone?

I've never fished Sag but have a permit for the end of July.

Well, I'm still hoping I'll get up there. Won't be this ice season, as I'm busy through Sunday. And my boat is too big for the motor restrictions.

But one of these days . . . grin.gifgrin.gif

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.
    • The Chemist
      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.
    • eyeguy 54
      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more. 
    • monstermoose78
      I would fish them trees
    • HunterFisher11
      So I should set my house in really shallow in on those trees?? Or stay out a little bit on the drop? Going to do a over night if that makes a difference?
    • monstermoose78
      Find them trees if they are in the water. I fished a lake like that and it was fishing the crappies in the trees. I had to use heavier line to horse them out quick.
