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.

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.

      I don't see ice going out til April. Some more 50 degree temps on the way, but still getting near or below freezing most nights and an extended forecast I saw is showing highs around 30 and even some single digit lows at night for the last couple weeks March. Little if any rain too.

      Looks like there's plenty of ice still in Spring Bay! Kids snowmobile racing.

      My wife is in total agreement with yours. I love the quiet and remoteness, my wife hates the ice travel!

      There aren't a lot of cabins in the bay to begin with, a whole other bonus! For the folks on the south side of the bay, it's an access issue as well. People in general are less likely to go in the winter when you don't have road access, because now you introduce ice conditions, snow depth, darkness, cold, and other factors into the trip. While I have always enjoyed those challenges, it is much different to drive up on a Friday night and pull up to your place versus get there at 10pm, unload machines and gear, and go across the lake at night with gear in tow. I love it. My wife hates it. My daughter is in the middle.   Enjoy it up there.

      Being we had a few hours of weather cold enough to make ice I decided to check out one of the small shallow lakes in the St Cloud area.  Ice was in surprisingly good shape this morning, had about 6-7 inches of hard ice again.   Found a pretty decent bite in 8-11 ft of water.  Crappies were riding high in the water colom while sunfish remained close to the bottom for the most part.  Best bait for me was a 3mm motoroil/chrome with a impulse mayfly. By mid afternoon we could definitely tell the ice wasn't as firm as it was in the morning. By the time we left at 4pm I had put all thoughts of returning tomorrow morning out of my mind.  At no point did I feel unsafe, we were prepared for whatever, floatation suits, ropes and ice picks at the ready😏😁.  Today was definitely my last day on the ice for the yr...next stop, spring carp/suckers😁   VID_20240229_150704553.mp4

      Just trying to make as little noise as possible once holes have been drilled.

      I take my sxs all the way down Phillips Rd. road to Cains driveway and turn around at the entrance to Laura's and her son's Brian's driveways, Brian bought Davey Crockett's old place.(I think that was his name). You see them fishing on his dock at the beginning of the narrow part of the channel heading in Black Bay. They have the only 2 driveways that are plowed during the winter down Phillips Rd. My neighbor, whom you met, used to plow his boat house road so we access the lake easier in the winter for ice fishing, but he doesn't ice fishing much anymore, so just sleds down that road. I think I know who lets you access the lake, nice of him. I'm surprised more people in Black Bay don't use their places in the winter. I'm heading up in the morning!

      I drove on I-35 over Albert Lea Lake on Jan 5. It wasn't even partially frozen, and it's like 6-8 ft average depth or something like that. Those lakes in Sourthern Minnesota didn't even get 2 months of ice this year.
