Lake Sarah

Recommended Posts

I am wondering if anyone has any reports from Lake Sarah. I went out there tonight. Nobody seemed too talkative about how things were going. Set up in the deepest hole at about 4:30. Caught 2 crappies right away. One 9 incher and one 8 incher. Catch and release on both. That is what I normally do. Anyone had any reports. I am taking a buddy from work tomorrow and he likes to catch northern and I like the crappies. Thank you in advance for any reports.

I'll be out there in about an hour. If you read this stop on by and say hi. I'll be in a black avalanche with a green portable eskimo. Good Luck.

You guys have any luck after I took off? Seemed like the bite started pretty good for you as I was packing things up.

Went out to Sarah on Saturday and fished the deep hole. Set up in the morning. Fish moved in and went away. Not much to holler about. Ended up with 2 9.5 inch crappies and a 10 inch crappie in the bucket. Caught maybe 35-40 between my buddy and I. Small sunnies and crappies mixed together. The good news is that the smallest crappie was about 7 inches. Any other reports?

After fishing Independence this morning, went over to Lake Sarah. Set up by 9:30. Set up in the farthest deep hole. Marked a lot of fish up until when I left at 11:30am. Half way down, all sunnies. Then stuff moved in up top about 10 feet down. I was suprised to find they were crappies. Never caught them that shallow below the ice. Only 1 keeper. Had to leave the lake. Anyone else doing well? I have only fished the last hole.

I talked to a guy who was out there last Sunday who caught about a half a dozen and then packed it up. Sounded to me like it was kind of slow?

Went out to Sarah again this morning. Was set up at 7:45am. Set up in the first hole after the channel. Lots of folks out there. Set up in 26' of water. Kept 3- 9-10" crappies and 1 9" sunnie. Caught a lot of small fish. More sunnies than crappies. Anyone out there catching crappies. The biggest I have ever caught is 10" and I am looking ot beat that this year. Any tips? Places you can point me?

Went out to Lake Sarah last night. Was pretty cold and quiet out there. Not too many people out. Fishing was slow. You suppose that was due to the 35 degree temperature drop? Ended up with 10 fish, 3 over 9 inches.

      Saturday we hit the South Shore in 30-60' for water.  Multiple hits and releases off the boards, dipseys, and downriggers but no hookups. Went something like 1 for 10 with a nice 29" walleye taken off a pink Husky Jerk and 3 oz of lead on board line.  Marked quite a few fish throughout that depth.

      The pictures were from Amazon, if you can't find it locally.   Jann's Netcraft has a lot of that stuff also. Comes in a variety of thicknesses/strengths.   Some folks use crimped sleeves especially with the thicker stuff.

      Yup!  14 will get cut, as will 20 from time to time.  I’ve run enough different fluorocarbon to get to the conclusion 20 lb is the best combination of fish ability and pike protection for the gear I use.  Anything less and the bite offs are easy.  Anything more and the stiffness kills the action too much and is hard to tie.   I’ll be looking for those leader materials you posted though.  I need something like that for a couple muskie rigs I want to experiment with.

      Vermilion is in low 70's

      A decent pike will bite through 20 pound flouro in a heatbeat.  Certtainly 14 pound like happened to me yesterday....

      Still a good bite on the rocks, just fewer humps having fish. Takes some searching to find a group. However, the fish still on the rocks are biters...and some big ones. I've been spending part of each day pulling cranks with lead core or flat lining and that is putting lots of fish in the boat also. I'm not seeing the huge schools in the mud anymore, just pods here and there but very fishable. Also catching some jigging. The water is amazingly cool still...below 70 every morning off the south shore. It has been a while since so many fish have been hanging within a few miles of the south shore. Boats are scattered over a huge area from around 28 feet and out. Sure nice not having to make long runs all the time. Fall fishing could be terrific this year with all the fish still on the south side. Forgot to mention the lack of algae blooms. Can't remember a year without major blooms by mid August. Good luck

      Thanks Hoey.

      Good luck.  There are a gazillion of those corner caps online.

      Excellent Del, closest one I have seen so far! Thanks a bunch, I'll check it out

      I did a google on "corner cap" and gunwale corner cap.... Saw some stuff that looked like it would work.   here is one.   this is from Australia but probably could find something here.   Also a bunch of pontoon stuff might be adaptable.     Another thought is to look at Lund models and find one that uses the same hull as your boat only is more recent....   My guess is that Lund has been using basically the same hulls for a bunch of different models for years.   I bet you can find one that has similar corner caps as what you need.   You could even give them a call.
