I am going to be up there at the same time as you, we don't make it as far as Sand Bay, but we almost make it that far. We usually fish between the Brule and just east of Blueberry island. If you are interested, I could put you on the spots I know in that area (for that matter, if you would want, you could join our 6 boat fishing party as we venture out each day... time depends on what happened the night before blush.gif, but I am usually pretty faithful to 7 AM). We stay on the SW corner of Finlander Island. There are a few guys that know the lake really well that I will be fishing with that could perhaps help you out around Sand Bay(?), but I am not familiar with that area. IF you would like to fish with us for a day, for just Friday, the whole weekend...etc. My name is Ben. Just show up at the campsite and ask for me.

I saw a bunch of them but they were on the highway North of Pickle Lake, Ontario. It seems one of the truck drivers forgot to seal up the back of the semi-truck leaving Lower-Windigo Lake and a few crates fell out, ice and all.

Needless to say, we ate well that night! First time I ever had road kill walleye.

ALAT,

That is a sweet beach on Finlander's SE side. If you ever run low on leeches just stand out near your boat in the sand. after a few minutes the leeches will start swimming under the shadow of the boat.

Who can say NO to Free Bait!

Wow thats great road kill walleye. All we get around here is Moose and Deer. FWP lets you pick them up if they are fresh but you have to give some of the meat to the needy.

wow I thanks for the offer but our outpost(cabin) is north of the causeway about 20 minutes and this lake is so big that I have not been any farther east that mermaid rock. I guess that I like the solitude. Anyways I bought a bunch of new flies so if I get frustrated I am going to try my luck with pike and bass on the fly(trout are so lame)!!!!!

      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!
    • Pat McGraw
      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.

      Here is some more dirty ice armor fish pics..... todays beast, released to fight again 
    • JerkinLips
      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
