The 4th report

Well, can you say sport boat traffic! I guess thats no real big surprise considering it was the fourth of july. My success this weekend was poor at best mostly because I stopped fighting the traffic and joined them! The kids liked that anyways. When I was out the small pike along any weedline was the only fish that wanted to cooperate with me. Did hear some reports of panfish in bays without traffic. If you are heading up and plan on trolling lindys bring a few the pike will bite them off also make them long 6-10 ft worked well. Anything shorter was a dorment line probably due to the traffic. Well not much info but will be back up this weekend to try again!

I did get out on Sandy this weekend. Unfortuneately I fished walleyes for 1.5 hours the entire weekend.
They were biting. I went out Sat night from 8 to 9:30; and I got a 23.5 inch and 17 inch Walleye. 6 others that were 10 to 13 inches.
6 to 8 feet deep. Lindy rig(home made with 4 lb test) betweeen 24 and 36 inches.
Big leeches.

I wish I would have gotten out a little more, but the holiday cheer tied me up over the weekend.

Way to go! At least you got out in the evening. Wife kinda had me tied for the family thing and the kids were plenty beat by the end of the day (so was dad).

Yep. Plenty of Holiday Cheer.

Between boat parades, hot sunny days, and evening fireworks around the lake, I'd say it was a plenty eventful and fun weekend. Good times, unless you thought you were going to be getting some sleep before 1am.

CRACK! BANG! BOOM! smile.gif

Nope, never intended it to be exact spots. Just a general direction and depth. Just trying to help out because I know this Mcgregor section does not see alot of action. It Sandy can be as good or better than alot walley lakes in MN. (Shhhhhhhhh)
A big thank-you to you!

Ah Geez Sand Burr,
That's pressure that I new was going to come my way. Like lots of guys I have seen on here, specifics are tough to divulge.

Alright. The trouble is that I can't narrow it down to the specific hump/s. On the big lake, there are several reefs/small flats/sunken islands, etc...
We got them out there on the top of one of them that came up between 7 and 8 feet. The trouble is that there are several of these spots. The one in particular is due north of Battle Island(I think thats the name). Not quite half way between the island and the north shore.

      I like costa's green mirror or blue mirror personally.

      I had a good opener, also with ten. We should have taken a lot more, but shooting, jitters, and other factors prevented it (as usual). For us, Sunday was really slow, but still managed to bag a few.

      That's a good idea thanks.

      We love it when we catch a muskie, but it can be such a grind!

      Just got back from five days on the lake. We were fishing for walleye in the end fun with limits already taken. We are on an island and the dock bite was very good. Slip bobbers with either rainbows or chubs. Also, walking the island and casting tubes was also productive for larger walleye. Off the point of the island, under dock, near rocks. I guess that means we caught most of our fish shallow. Wind was our friend, to a point. Didn't like some of the gusts but wind blown shore and points were key. Follow the wind.   Smallmouth were not shallow. We did work some shoreline but did not find those fish up shallow. We did run into some smallmouth on the points, etc deeper while fishing for walleye.

      I had a good opener.  Two friends and I got 10 ducks and with some better shooting we could probably had 12 or 13.  It was significantly better than the last two openers and certainly better than I expected.  We had nice mixed bag of wood ducks, mallards, teal, and even got a shoveler.  It was very comfortable out there too.  Was nice not to sit there and roast away in my chest waders this time.

      If that is a new 2018 rig I would call the MFG and see what they think?  If you have a warranty on it, that may invalidate it?

      We have been up since Saturday and all we got are small walleyes.  Very windy today.  Hope wind goes down

      Quite a bit slower today. Only saw 2 teal between yesterday and today, which  really surprised me and most of the wood ducks seemed to have moved on. Didn’t stick around long enough for the geese. Hope everyone had a great weekend and good luck!
