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)!!!!!

      Drove all the way up to grindstone this morning from Forest Lake. As I'm driving along the shoreline, I can't stop admiring how beautiful of a day it is, and how great it will be to be on the water. Was totally amped up to fish for some trout! Then I pull up to the boat launch...and it's closed down! :mad: This dredging project has been pushed back for years, then they finally decide to do it on a beautiful sunny day, that I picked to come here...on the last day of the lake trout season nonetheless! Needless to say, I was very upset! 

      Could have throw a line off the south shore since you were all the way up there. :(

      Hey guys thanks for the tips.  What you are saying really makes sense.  I have been working on these items this week, not expecting a completely changed dog out there but looking forward to continued exercises this weekend out in the blind.

      I bet the state, not the political cronies, would get a lot more money by having the auction on the internet or allowing phone bids.  Heck, put them on the bay of E. 

      Actually DMV and DNR do quite well at their auctions. You win bid, You Pay, You own. No red tape, no collection process, simple and things seem to sell for quite a bit of money. Go and one see for yourself, its quite amazing. Lots of them at the Arden Hills DMV. Hard to collect money over the phone and on the internet. I do believe they will use the same auction process for this property sale as the DMV and DNR are good at it and a lot of buyers will be there. If the internet were to be used, the "political cronies" would need to create a bill, Ear Mark several million to develop a site, create an app, hire 40 to 50 people to manage and than increase taxes to cover the cost much like Obama Care Not a good plan. If your interested, go to auction, bring lots of money, win a bid and own.

      They were dredging there today. Not sure if they are done or if it will take longer.

    • the weather has not been good this past week either, but fishing was still do able. Pike island is a popular spot and I am sure you can find fish there. Gold is. would be worth a try as would the area around the wolf pack. We had 4 nice walleye today and a great fish fry tonight. Heading home in the morning for the season. so good luck

    • I bet we will end up going to red trying to convince the couple guys that dont like sleepers for some reason that a 10x24 sleeper is just like a cabin and that we can bring 2 portables to bounce around if we want. Dont really need a guide ill probably allready have gone there 3-4 times before this trip.... Maybe superior will freeze good this year and I can convince them to go there i guess I just get kinda bored or red sometimes

      Well, got out of the hospital and rehab a couple of weeks ago, Its been a long haul went in on Feb 15, with some massive heart attacks.   Starting to feel better and have hit Fish a couple of times.  Thought I would check out the site and see if traffic has picked up,  Sorry to say not much different, a lot of lookers as usual and not a lot of posters

      Been there and done that.... Not the site but the hospital etc

      In northwest Wisconsin 26 hunting dogs have already been killed this late summer.   Already breaking the record of 23.  Be careful in the northland.
