8/23 report

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.

      My transducer issue was during open water.   My hypothesis after several transducers was that freezing them after having been in the water damaged them.    Once I stopped letting them freeze then they stopped going bad.   Maybe some water was getting into them and causing damage when it froze.   The transducer in my Minnkota  US2 is fine with freezing.

      I fished by the Lester area yesterday n today. I was in 75-78’ water. Had one school of coho’s chase my jig all the way to the bottom of the ice. I looked down the hole and was amazed by the fish just swarming around my jig and just nipping the tale. That was my very first time out there. Didn’t catch any, but seeing those fish made it all worth it. At Lester there is an Easier way out there if you go to the south side of the river. It’s an easier trail to follow out onto the lake. There must be some open water just north of there. There was a lot of mallards flying around and landing. ?

      I don’t have what your requesting , but you can do just as I did to verify such changes by calling the Mn DNR at 651-296-6157 ...

      When you rubbed your hand on the ducer before, did you notice a thin layer of ice on it?  I’m guessing No, with how you described the situation, but that can happen with a ducer that’s below freezing when you dunk it in the water.  It ruins sensitivity.     You’re open ice fishing, yes?  Not in the warmth of a house?  Like the others mentioned, could just be your graph doesn’t like the cold.  And it’s always better to have the depth range locked in than on auto.   Good luck Bob.

      Do you have a link to an article or regulation that shows the changes?
    • Wanderer
      Yeah, I think we’ve had enough.  The silver lining for me is I DONT plan on fishing this weekend.  But I do have to ready my sled for next weekend in ON.  I’m hoping the snow isn’t as bad up there.  Strange to think it’s a possibility but yeah, that’s how much we have in MN.   I kept my face plastered to the plane window going down to Denver on Monday.  The snow line peters out around the NE/CO border.  The only people not complaining about snow and cold at home were from CA!   I thought there was a noticeable lack of fishouses out on our MN lakes too.  I hope to get a good view of Mille Lacs when we come into Brainerd.  It was amazing how small the lake looked on the way out! 😄
