panfish on lake sarah

Recommended Posts

CALVINIST

I just got back from Vermillion, and me and my 4 year old son Lucas caught some really nice 9" bluegills in Everett bay. My boy wants to go fishing all the time now, but needs constant action, otherwise he gets frown.gif. I forgot how much fun it is to catch nice panfish. I have never fished lake Sarah, but is close to home. I read the dnr report and says it is loaded with sunnies that average about 6".

Can anyone confirm good panfishing on this lake? General locations, presentations, and times?

Also, how do you get to the launch?

Does anyone know of another lake on the west end that produces nice panfish?

Any help would be greatly be appreciated!

I went to this lake yesterday for the first time (just moved to the area). The launch is on the southwest side of the lake - west of Lorretto (sp) on county 11 - then take a right on Lake Sarah drive and follow the signs. My three year old and I caught bluegills, crappies and bass along the north shoreline/weedline/docks on the very west side of the lake. I fished 3 - 10'. There were lot of boats fishing the weedline and a few on either millfoil lines or humps in the middle of the lake. I just used an 1/8 oz jig and powerbait grub and casted. Nice little lake and a nice Father's Day outing. I'd get there fairy early on weekends and they were ticketing illegally parked trucks.

Lake Sarah near Loretto is a great panfish lake. I have had my best large bluegill days right after ice out before the weeds come up. Several fish 7-8 inches. Right now can be good on the weed edges like many metro lakes are this time of year. However, it is my experiience that the average bluegills are 5-6 inches this time of year. The spots that have worked for me are the north side straight out from the launch and the west side after you pass the channel on the south part of the lake. There is plenty of action on that lake. Good Luck!

As far as the launch goes, how many spots, and how fast do they fill up? It has been awhile since I checked this post, anyone else have any luck on Sarah of late?

The launch has about 15 or so spots and fills out fairly early on the weekends.

Went out last night and caught crappies, bass, bluegills and two walleye (which I didn't think were supposed to be there) on the west side of the lake along the north side weed lines or on a few humps in 10-18 fow (same as the last post). Just used a 1/8 oz jig and powerbait again. Not many boaters last night.

If you look at the lakemap, there is alot of walleye-like structure out there. I am a little surprised that there are walleyes out there though, because the dnr report makes no mention of walleyes in Sarah....hmmmmm

Thanks,

Forgot to mention that I also saw the Loche Ness monster and Sasquache, and also caught Flipper, Nemo, Charlie the Tuna and Jaws. . .

Seriously, the two walleyes were caught on a mid-lake hump and were about 10" and 12" inches (no, not feet) long. They lived to see another day.

Finally made it out there with my 4 year old son, Lucas. He had the honor of getting the largest bluegill, the largest crappie, the only bass, about 12", and a 45" muskie (just kidding about the muskie). He had a good 'ol time out there, just like me. Fished the shore on the other side of the lake right across from the access. All in all, got more than enough fish to feed my family tomorrow.

Calvanist, I don't know anything about Lake Sarah but I'm interested in your user name. I'm assuming theological implications.

Juggs, why yes, it does...I doubt that "Juggs" has theological implications though, does it?

Buzzsaw, I do not wear my Calvies while fishing!

      Gulp crawler.  In the spot the walleyes were going in there was a pile of 3-5" perch that tore up the real crawlers.   Gulp crawlers took care of the issue and the eyes liked them too. 
    • delcecchi
      When we go to Quetico, barbless or mashed down barbs is mandatory.   To tell the truth I haven't noticed that we lose more fish with barbless than barbed.   Not catching muskies though.  Pike, walleye, bass, lake trout. 
    • delcecchi
      Vermilion might be down a little, but not much.  Your lakes might be different.  
    • whateverisbiting
      Is that a gulp worm?  I am not on Osakis but cant fish with live bait without the bass, sunnies, and perch hammering it instantly.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      i havent been out in for atleast a month out there but check out walleye dan's facebook, he usually posts a report weekley; https://www.visitbrainerd.com/blog/fishing-report-july-16-2018/

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!
    • roony
      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!
