Shad,

I can tell you that the fish on Sandy are in full fall patterns. The panfish were doing extremly well last week with a few reports of some 16" crappies. Lots of small walleys and eaters. Stay shallow and fish your favorite spots. Stable weather is always good for Sandy.

Dont forget to post a report for us.

Sand Burr, 16 inch crappies, did I read that right. holy #*$* are they in aitkin lake, or in the sandy. sorry but 16 inch crappies sounds unrealistic to me. whats that about 3 pounds. I know there are some crappies in that watershed that size, but not the norm. myself I would like to find a school of some 12 inchers.

I don't doubt it. They're in there, and its fall. If there's anytime to get some monster Crappies its now.

Good fishing,

I heard of some 12 inchers coming out of aitkin. I was hopefully trying to get a response of were these so called 16 inchers were caught, so I can get in on the action. I think there is some of the best crappie lakes in the state in this region. but what I truly want are the bull gills. that is the toughest fishing report to get.
I am looking forward to the ice season.

Knoppers,
I can tell you of two one was caught on atkin lake and the other was caught trolling to atkin. Both were caught before the fall fishing boom. Panfish is the "thing" for the other campers at my campsite. They wait all year just for the fall fishing.

      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.

      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. 
    • delcecchi
      When we go to Quetico, barbless or mashed down barbs is mandatory.   To tell the truth I haven't noticed that we lose more fish with barbless than barbed.   Not catching muskies though.  Pike, walleye, bass, lake trout.
