Sauk Lake Info

5 posts in this topic

Going to be coming up to Sauk Lake this weekend to try to do some fishing and hopefully not freeze anything off.

Any word on how the bite has been? I prefer to fish walleyes, but any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Haven't fished it for walleye but I had been catching some sunnies and crappies out there. Not much for size though, lots of sorting to get a meal. Good luck!!!

Thanks for the info! Know anyone that would want to rent their shack out for the weekend? We are going to probably be going to be fishing out of portables but I would gladly pay cash to use someone's during the day with the forecast being what it is.

The resort is all booked up so we don't have a lot of options...

Thanks

Walleye fishing on Sauk was fastg and furious for a while at dutchmans but now it has slowed down quite abit, if your planning on targeting walleyes fish about 32' of water with glow jigs(red) and RAINBOW CHUBS - NOT SHINERS!.... Good luck... and i was wondering what resort you tried gettin a fishing trip though? Big Jim's? Well good luck... I'll be out there this weekend more than likely on the north end by diamond point in the "Red Barn Bay" targeting crappies... My house is red and white stripped (knida like a candy cane) if you see me there stop by i have a red S10... Good luck

Thanks for the info. We ended up going to Osakis because I found a shack up there. Fishing sucked. Marking some fish but couldn't get them to bite.

My buddies went back to Sauk and fished for sunnies and crappies with no luck either...

O well, there is always next time.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
