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

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
