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.

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.

      Well its Friday and the forecast looks fantastic for a weekend of hole hopping. Me and the 96' Pantera are heading up North of Duluth in search of walleyes. Where is everyone heading, what's the target, and how much ice are you seeing?

      Bill , Theresa spent one night in Montana, They managed tow get 2 walleyes under 17. 1 around 20 inches , They also landed a 36 inch pike. So all in all Not to good.  The fishing has been way better out deeper , but with this warm up and my houses weighing 5 to 7 thousands pounds.  I need to use common sense and stay on this side of the pressure ridge for now.   When the weather warms  the ice expands , the weakest link is the pressure ridges and can become quite active. Its just getting light, but from what I have heard through the grape vine  the lake was gowning and popping last night with a couple new breaks so if your coming up please check at the resort you plan on accessing.  There crews are out there everyday and know more about what"s going on with bridges ,cracks and areas that should be avoided.  Right now the temps are just to mild to make much if any ice. I was surprised to measured 13 1/4 where I have old Minnesota. I imagine  there's a bit more snow closer to shore so were seeing a inch or more further out where's there's less snow.   We have guest coming  today  with a few not coming tell tomorrow.

      Bump! I assume it's safe for walking but are there any spots to avoid for foot traffic? Have the week of Xmas off and would like to try this lake.

      That's amazing, you have the same Avatar name as a guy who has been selling the same box on here since Sept. Did he give you a better deal then $80 bucks? 🤔

      I just purchased this from bold north outdoors,  now i have everything running off of my battery box.  Its pretty sweet.  I found them on facebook, many people make them, but after the cost of purchasing everything it would cost more then what this company is selling them for

      For portable power on the go, use a Bold North Outdoor battery box, solar panel, and a lithium battery.  You can hook up external 12v lights to the the terminal posts or a usb led light to the usb port.  Charge your electronics, and use the flash lights on the front of the box.   Many uses for this product just named a few, added a couple pictures of what I have inside of my Portable Battery Box. You can check them out on fb or just go to their website.  www.boldnorthoutdoors.com

      Back when I had to go to the barn to get a feed bucket to put my fishing gear in (which it all fit in one bucket), I could catch all kinds of nice fish with nothing more than a homemade rattle reel and a cheap jiggle stick.  As technology and equipment got better, my ability to catch fish went in the toilet.
