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.

      How is it going today

      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

      If  my memory serves me correctly , yes you can . I believe that we were able to safely walk a 16ft boat through the short stretch of current . When we did this it was warm part of summer and we were in shorts and just had a pair of tennis shoes on when we walked the boat up stream which was about a 30 yard or so pull .Now if you would attempt this during colder weather like now , I’m sure a pair of knee length rubber boots would be sufficient . Very beautiful clear water with awesome scenery . Walleye , Smallmouth , and Lakers .

      Has anyone fished North Lake before? Lakefinder says there’s a navigable waterway there via Gunflint Lake. However, the map shows rapids in between Little Gunflint and Little North, with a short portage. Just wondering if I could get a boat in there.

      Have got out 3 evenings so far.  Seeing deer only one of those evenings.  4 deer Monday evening with a fawn buck and a small 1 and half old buck coming within range.   Woods and fields are changing fast.

      Good opener on the water in the Mankato area. 3 wood ducks and 2 geese. Little guy’s first opener, we left at 10:00 and he wanted to stay longer than I did!

      As many of the other dog owners told me the third hunting season is when it comes together for lots of dogs. Finn did much better today and he got to watch a veteran dog again. I am excited to keep getting finn out hunting

      We got two ducks. We should had more but it was fun shooting. I need to keep my face on my stock. I had pass on many birds as another group moved in on top of us. I had 5 woodies locked up and I drew a bead and I saw the other guys faces. No shot as i would killed them or wounded them. They knew we there but did not seem to care.
