Deer/Sand/Round

5 posts in this topic

Looking for info on these 3 lakes, never fished them. My brother has a place near Marcell and if it's to windy, I would like to try these instead of winnie. I will have my 2 boys ages 10 and 7 and they mostly want to try walleyes but northerns/panfish are not out of the question. The people at the marcell gas/bait shop have always been really helpful but thought i'd ask the fishermen on this thread. Kinda looking for what species are in these lakes but will always take spots cool.gif Thanks, Joe

sand and round have been pretty decent for walleye this season. jig and minnow on the big flats by the weeds has been working. lots of northern and perch in those lakes.

I've been fishing Deer about a week a year, for many years. Can't give you a current report. I am heading up this weekend. It's generally a somewhat tough lake to locate panfish. But there are local lakes with good panfish bite. It's a stocked walleye lake and I regard it as a good numbers lake. It has a new slot limit for Northern this year. Hopefully that will help. It used to be a great Northern lake, but the average size has slowly dwindled over the past decade. It is currently pathetic for Northern compared to the 80s and prior. An occasional decent Northern, but mostly thick with "hammer-handles"

Hope this helps.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.
