Sand Burr

7/12 report

Recommended Posts

Sand Burr

Sand and leeches with an occasional crawler. Find yourself 6-10 feet of water off one of many of the bars anywhere around the lake and it will produce some "walldogs". Size on the other hand? Lots in the 11-14 inch range. Did have some minor succes on some 16-18 inch in Fishermans bay. Hardly anyone on the lake this weekend! I've got a "thing" this weekend so it will be two weeks till you get another report from myself.

Forgot to mention Atkin lake produced some nice limits of sunfish. Also I can't remember the name of the bay but it is east of battle island (long island or something) is producing some crappies.

I couldn't resist that reply knoppers.

I wasn't even aware there was a Cedar lake in Aitkin county.

Dam lake is on my list of lakes to do, but I haven't don'it yet. I have heard the walleyes are good there.
The one time a gave long lake a drive bye, it was to active with skiers, PWC's and pleasure cruisers.

Long Lake is very deep (100+ ft) and pretty clear.

Dam Lake is a decent Walleye and Crappie spot, but like knoppers said, this time of year is all about the weekend renegade and their kids.

If you can get out there mid-week the traffic is almost non existent.

Kinda what I thought too. Mother in law's Cabin is on Long, and have been fishing it for about 3 or 4 years now. Lots of small northerns, and occasional decent walleye. I think problem is lake is so deep, that they head way down in the summer...I want to bring my own rig up there this fall and fish Dam, and maybe a few other in Glen.

      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. 
    • Parmer
      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  
    • pikeandchester
      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!

      How is it going today 
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Carp30, Vermilion is starting into the fall transition period now that the water is cooling down. The bite can be either great or tough during this period. Yesterday we caught walleyes as deep as 44' and as shallow as 10'! Location and time of day is the key! We caught walleyes deep using short snell Lindy rigs,( 2 ft.), with minnows, The shallow walleyes hit best on the same rigs using 1/2 crawler. Sand and rock mix or transitions are the key areas right now. Necked down areas that have deep water and adjacent sand flats are almost always good now. Cliff
