Hi, my wife and I are staying for a week at the west end of Kab at Sandy Point Lodge starting Aug.1 We are using a lodge boat and don't want to travel too far. We are mainly looking for pike and panfish. Maybe with some luck a few eyes. Will be trolling rapalas and the like for pike, what color patterns work good. Just looking for some fish for the basket and a relaxing time. Thanks for any infor

There are many good bays at that end of the lake that usually hold lots of pike. You don't have to worry about motoring too far from Sandy point to get into the pike.

Over the past few years we have had a lot luck using neon green and yellow spoon. It seems to do the trick in just about every light condition as long as you are fishing weeded areas.

Anybody else have some tips on August pike fishing?

Good Luck,
Pikefisher

We always have good luck in front of the Rock Gardens (Clyde River)for both northerns and smallmouth. My biggest smallie (4 lbs.) came off of the sand bar just at the mouth of the river. I never catch the big northerns but people with me have caught a 12, 13 and 14 lb northern working the weedline from the point on the east edge of the mouth of the river over to the dock at the Rock Gardens.

We have also had pretty good luck fishing northerns around the island at the back of Moose Bay.

Oddly enough, most of the bigger fish have come off of fat raps. Otherwise, the usual assortment of daredevils, spinnerbaits, bucktails, etc.

      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.

      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!
