was wondering does big sandy produce a thermocline, or is it like mille lacs and not stratify. was thinking of some late september walleye fishing on the lake, and contemplating the depths I should be thinking about.
any other lakes besides sandy thats going now. seems this site is too much focused on big sandy instead of the whole aitkin/mcgregor area.

Hey knoppers,

There's alot of interest here in Big Sandy, and alot of people appreciate the reports Sand Burr and others give for the lake.

Alot of the areas more familiar lakes are going strong for Crappies right now, as the fish have finally moved to the deeper water and away from weeds. Look in 12-20 feet for suspended fish and you'll find a decent bite. Hey, them Walleyes are even hanging in the same relative haunts right now, so you double the odds. smile.gif

Information shared here is always appreciated, but as you know yourself, alot of the lakes are smaller sized in this region and this often times causes folks to be a little more tight lipped when a hot bite comes around.

Can't say I blame em', but if you ever have a specific lake in question I know that someone out there is always happy to help a fellow angler in persuit of a fun outing.

I'd hit Wilkins in 15-20 feet with small frogs in the evenings for Walleyes.

Crappies can be had on Gun in the same depths.

If you have the energy, go to the little semi-marshy wooded area on the north side of the channel going into Whispering.

Should be able to catch at least half a dosen.

      We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot.👍👍     Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...

      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 🙂

      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.
