Sauk Lake

4 posts in this topic

Heading up to Sauk Lake next weekend for a little fishing get away. Have ice fished it before but never out of the boat. Just looking for a little advice on any fall patterns for walleyes .Shallow or deep? Cranks or live bait? I know it will depend on the weather, just looking for a little help with what presentation to start with.

Thanks.

Trytti, Sorry I did'nt see you post sooner.

We have been finding the Walleye's in the 10 to 15 foot range. We are still using live bait rigs mostly with fatheads and some redtails. It will be a little while for them to move up from what we have seen.

The best bite we have found has been on the main lake next to the old sheep pasture.

Sorry for the late reply.

Best of Luck

Thanks we found a few eyes and a bunch of northerns on the main lake in about 8-10ft.

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.
