crane and sand point bite

Recommended Posts

Enids Hubby

Hello,
will be heading to Crane Lake for the week on Saturday. I usually fish Crane, Sand Point, Little Vermillion and East end of Namaken, the U.S. sides. Was curious if anyone is having any luck with the Walleyes in these areas. was up earlier this year and walleye action was slow but the Northerns are biting good.
Thanks

EH
I dont here much about Crane and Sandpoint, I'm surprised nobody from there ever posts info, oh well, there loss.

Namakan has been the better lake for walleyes
as of late, on the East end, I know the Blind Pig Narrows is a talked about area, although I'm not familiar with it. I'd fish reefs at about 28' plus for eyes, and deep water adjacent to shallow weedy bays for pike, it never hurts to try jerk baits or husky jerks in the shallows for lots of fun and action. Good luck, guts <{{{{{><

We were up last weekend July 25-27. Fishing has been slow, had our best luck on Little Vermilion south of the narrows. Also had some success at the Vermilion Gorge for walleye and smallmouth mainly using jigs, spinners and plain hooks with leeches and crawlers. One morning tried Swansons bay on Sand Point for northerns with crank baits caught nothing but hammer handles. But the wildlife show was fabulous. Watched two different families of Otters in and out of the water doing their antics and a pair of Eagles feeding their nestlings. My wife and I don’t fish that hard usually a few hours in the morning but just enjoy being out on the water at sunrise.

Thanks for responding Guts and Iguy,
Guts, I know the blind pig channel area and will give that a try , usually has a lot of boat traffic but if the fish bite it does'nt matter.
Iguy, I never thought of the gorge this time of the year , I'll check it out . Little Vermillion always seems to produce some walleye, I should have some luck there.
Even if the fish are'nt biting I can't think of a better area to spend vacation.
Happy Fishin

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
