to be honest with you honker, I have never fished sand lake.

I do know it's a great lake for walleyes n the fall.

I can also tell you it's connected to bowstring and that lake can be hot as a firecracker in the winter.

I'd say get out and work the structure during the obvious times of day to fish and if that fails, bowstring is right across the road wink.gif

ask the locals or baitshop owners for any tips on that lake, or just watch here. I'm sure Jason will chime in. he's pretty darned knowledgeable. he'll steer you in the right direction.

good luck!

Not to hi-jack this post, but hey jigglestick is there any "flying liver" on the lake across from ya'? I'm hoping for 1 more duck hunt this Tuesday and it sounds like everything is frozen or near frozen up. Thinking of putting in at the beach and going out to the small island.

Thanks,

Brian

Brian, I have been watching, but not seen many. I saw one to the left, and two in front of the area you are talking about.

I could go down there and watch a morning flight this week.

I still have my bag of divers out, but not sure if the lines are long enough for there. they used to be but...well thats another story.

they probably wont come down until after season mad.gif

sometimes we get lucky.

Thanks jigglestick! Tuesday is the last day for duck season. I've got a few tips on a couple other spots that are holding birds. Can't scout tomorrow, so I'll put some miles on Tuesday AM and see what I find. Hopefully there's a prime drake goldeneye for the wall out there with my name on it! grin.gif

Any of you guys ever target eyes on this lake in the winter? I tried once, no success, but have always wondered if it's a good winter lake

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      One thing I'd like to add, they live about 2 miles north of remer on hwy 6.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      We always called them wing-dings! I also learned that trick on LOW. Very tasty!! Cliff

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
