Sandpoint

Anyone care to divulge their GO TO lure for Northerns on Sandpoint in mid May? I was planning on throwing spinner baits and inline spinners in the shallow bays since we'll be lucky to have Ice out by May 1st.

Natural Mepps, silver blade, small white twister tail, spinnersizes 3-5. I raised 3 boys on that lake. That's the lure that taught them to cast, play fish, unhook and handle fish etc. Never found anything that worked nearly as well. You've got the pattern figured out. Another thing to try is trolling big Rapala's like tail dancers along and off the rocky points. That works better later in the summer but you'll eventually catch a REALLY big one doing that.

Gold Rapala Husky Jerk. Biggest one that they make.

Well, I got som HJ's and a few X-raps. Some spinner Baits and a few inlines. Now I gotta figure out how NOT to go mad waiting for the next 29 days to go by.

Is the ice out yet?

WJ,

Look in the Crane forum a few topics down for "web cam". You'll find links to webcams of Rainy, Crane and Kab. I'm checking them several times a day now. The ice is darker and farther from shore all the time. Won't be long!

      Can not say for sure, but there is parking outside of the park next to the boat ramp and also a turn a round road.

      Is Stoney point access open to the public or just for camper access?

      I purchased this exact boat last year just for Trout.  16ft Alumacraft, 25hp Yamaha, Helix 5 humminbird. This year I purchased a 50# thrust Minn Kota for the bow, I just haven't installed it yet.  Looking forward to it!

      Cutbait is all I use for cats on the red. Cut goldeye, sucker and frogs are my go to baits. Typically a 4-6 oz no roll sinker with a foot leader or shorter. Cast it down current and wait. Caught a lot of cats that way. We actually caught eyes doing that too but not many. Haven't tried bait paste or anything like that but would imagine it would work
