I am going to Saganaga for the 4th of july and was wondering if anyone has any good tips as it's my first trip up there. I am going to be staying at Voyageur Canoe Outfitters were I rented a cabin and a boat. I am looking to get my son into some fish as it's his first real fishing trip.

Thanks for any info you can give me.

Killdeer, I just got back from Sag and was trying to get some info as well before I left. What I discovered is the walleye fishing is terrible on Sag right now and people are just not commenting at all. But with that said, July fishing on Sag can be very good if it turns around. Also the smallie fishing is pretty awesome up there just about anytime so your son should have some fun with that. I can give you some places to try if you would like.

      Well just for the Halibut, you could try salmon or Cod! 😆

      I've heard it you nail them to a board, smoke them, throw away the fish then eat the board they can be good?

      What's wrong with drift fishing if you have some wind? I do it all the time with good results. 👍

      In my opinion not one that big. Smaller ones if done right are good. But I've had 1 to many bad ones too ever get near a smoked carp again

      I was out alone on Big Sauk Lake on Thursday morning. I brought some leeches and nightcrawlers in search of walleye. I was marking a lot of fish in the 20' - 25' depth range. Some decent sized arches suspended about 10' - 15' down, which I suspected were likely northern pike, and some nice arches near the bottom, which I hoped were walleye. I couldn't seem to connect with any of them and for a while I decided to try shallower to see if there was anything more willing to take.    I moved into about 15' depth and found perch. I could tell they were perch by the way they were nibbling off my bait. At one point they ate everything off my jig up to the hook and l was left with what was on my hook. So, I dropped that over the side and decided to to just let it sit on the bottom to see what happens.   I made myself comfortable and laid my rod across my lap with my hands crossed over it. Yup, I dozed off and in a short time I was awakened when my fishing rod was almost pulled out of my hands! I grabbed my fishing rod and began to fight the fight of a lifetime with a fish! Now, I've caught a few 36" - 40" northern pike and some 25" - 31" walleye and a few 22" - 23" smallmouth on my walleye rigs but never had I experienced a battle like that. I was getting concerned that I would run out of line on my reel a couple times. With my 6# test line it took me about 10 minutes to tire the fish out enough to get it into my landing net. It turned out to be a common carp but what a fun fish to catch! I've never caught one of these before. Lifting it up I estimated it was somewhere between 12 and 15 lbs. I didn't find any regulations about destroying them and learned they are not invasive so I released it.    Are they good smoked?

      Hello Gents, heading up Aug 26. I see that fishing has been good on Crane. We are staying on Sand Point. Top water hot for smallies now ? We target pike and throw everything else back. Been going there since 1981. Any updates appreciated would like a crappie for a replica. Any ideas ?  Thanks tight lines, mark

      @JerkinLips drag a driftsock to slow your troll with your 35.  It helps.
