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.

      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.
