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.

      good news, I heard earlier that it was under consideration.

      Looking at the latest images, the lake looks pretty iced over... are there any areas of thin ice / open water to be found? Not looking to fish, need to test some safety gear with a group. Any river mouths open or areas between Duluth and Tettegouche?
    • Bigfatbert
      Yup !!   Also note the new one over change to 26”... it’s currently 28” 18”-26 must be immediately released , and one walleye over 26” may be included daily and possession. Kab , Namakan, Sand Point , Crane . These changes start on the 2019 opener .

      So after the 8” of snow the other day the lakes are a huge mess. I was out for a snowmobile ride yesterday and went to a lake not to far from home. I like to ride out there a couple times a week. So I made a loop around the lake and the snow was about knee deep but had no issues. I was just about ready to head home and checked out an area I like to fish. Well.... I jumped a plowed road bank and sink in about 1 foot of water and slush. I pinned my sled and barley crawled along about 50 years to dry snow. So my weekend plans of fishing are done. This was a smaller lake so I’m sure all lakes are impassable. I have what I think id a good ice fishing sled. A Polaris 600 with a 136” track never had an issue before but with all the snow and slush now there’s no way I’ll be able to fish. The snowmobile trails haven’t beeen grommed after the last snow and I’m getting sick of riding the ditches. Anyone else annoyed with all this snow now? Thanks Mother Nature I now have nothing to do this weekend! 😥

      Way to let "Quasimoto" go and perpetuate his/her goofy genes...  If I catch a bunch of funny-looking, humpy 13.5 inchers in the future, I'm blaming you! 😁  (...as opposed to the scrawny 9 inchers I'm lucky to catch...) Poor thing looks like it's gonna get stuck in the ice-hole!

      I usually keep my sonar unit in the house because I put it on the charger every time I get home. Just for fun, the next time it does it, I might try just warming up the transducer and sending it back down the hole to see what happens. Thanks.
    • BobT
      I didn't think of that! Probably should have glanced down the hole, eh?

      Just another reminder that walleye/pike season ends on Sunday too for inland waters.  Don't get caught targeting the wrong species of fish next week.
