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.

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.

      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.

      I bought one from them too I priced it out and it was about the same to build my own as to order from them so I just ordered it from them. Mine wouldnt be as neat as theirs haha

      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.
