8/23 report

Recommended Posts

Sand Burr

Well, while I was in sunny Las Vegas for the weekend with my lovely wife and no kids (THANKS VINCE) I did have a scout out on sandy from thursday through sunday. Although I sent him to a new spot using the old fashion way of finding (3 land points) I don't think he was in the right spot frown.gif He also said that there was alot of lightning wed. night apon his late arrival. Sounds like the winds came up pretty good. He did get his family out to Atkin lake and had some good sunfishin. He totaled one wall dog for the weekend at about 10" frown.gif. I will be up over labor day for sure no hidden surprises this weekend. I will once again say that I stay at eagle point right accross from Big sand sports. You can actually see my camper from 65 as you drive by 2850 jaco with white lights around it and a screen in front. I drive a crew cab ford with Advantage wetlands accross the bottom. If your up this weekend and need a report stop in and see if I'm in.

I will be on Sandy as well this weekend. Staying on a cabin on Bridge Road.
Not sure how much serious fishing will be done, but I will be out there at some point.

Hmmm, maybe I should bring my boat up. At least I will be more inclined to get out if I have my rig.

I am sure there will be plenty of sport boat traffic! It is hard for me to get serious when you have people buzzing you all the time. Big I will be buzzing around your area plenty.

Moby,
Last time I was up it looked like your folks got the lift and boat in. You going to be up this weekend?

Hey Sandburr , how ya been ? I was one of the guys that stopped by last winter to look at that fish house you had for sale . Gray Dodge truck and brought the wife with .

Anyways I was up at Big Sandy last Sat. to finish getting my camper ready to move in Sept.. That had to be the quietest I've ever seen the lake on a summer weekend . We were at the in-laws place on the south end of Fishermans bay . 1 jet ski , 1 water skier and 1 fishing . Made me regret leaving the fishing stuff home and making it a work weekend. Will not be up over Labor Day , lake will be too busy for me . Good chance I'll be up again on the 6th after a morning trip to Hay Days . Maybe I'll see you on the water if your around .

Yep, I remember you. My scout last weekend said the same thing. He could'nt believe there wasn't more traffic out there. He thought he had the lake to himself.

I will be bear hunting that weekend and the next but will be up on the 20th then to Saskatchawan for a week.

We will link up sometime....

Going to Sandy tomorrow night.
Leaving the boat home. I am just gonna use the In-laws boat I guess.
Sand Burr,
What do you fish out of?
I think you asked about Moby too. He posted a week or two ago, that the cabin was going to be loaded with little tikes. Didn't sound good for him.

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      Ive been out a few times as well..have tried from the harbor all the way up to boyscout...have been getting a few everytime out but has been slow for me....been trolling crawlers with big colorado blades..have caught fish on flats by barkers,between the bridges,and out from clyde area....got 6 cats accidentally while trolling boards by the community hole south west side of spirit lake...water clarity still sucks in the harbor..a bit better the farther up river u go...has it been kinda slow for everyone?????ive been doing better on fish lake.lol

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂
    • LBerquist
      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.

      Gulp crawler.  In the spot the walleyes were going in there was a pile of 3-5" perch that tore up the real crawlers.   Gulp crawlers took care of the issue and the eyes liked them too.
