Sand Point Success

6 posts in this topic

August 5th: day trip into Sand Point's Grassy Bay produced 24 walleyes. 2 under the slot, 8 in the slot (great shore lunch in Grassy Bay), and 14 over the slot with the biggest fish 25". Weather was perfect. A strong south wind of 15-20 and walleyes in 18-24 feet of water. Leech and bare hook did the trick. Some caught on worms too. Also mixed in some smallies in the upper teens. Good fishing to all! (this is my first post on the forum, thanks to all for the good fishing stories leading up to our trip)

I think I saw you there. Were you the boat with the six Hmong people in it? Those weren't walleye, they were perch!!

Double Dog,

Hmmmm... not amusing. Your first post in 18 months and you're taking a shot at somebody? Do all a favor and go back to lurk mode.

Sorry, inside joke.

Didn't mean to offend you Stizo.

And no, I wasn't serious about the perch comment either.

Thanks, I will go back into lurk mode now.

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.

      When I was a kid, I used to ask my dad to take me ice fishing--he would always say "wait 'till it gets warmer"......
