Hay Sand, I'm bringing my kids dirt bike up this weekend. And I'm going to ask a friend of mine if I can use his 4-wheeler (it's at he cabin already.) So if you want to take the kids over to the gravel pit Saturday afternoon bring your wheeler up and let me know.

Hay Sand, I had a great time fishing you. (I haven't laughed that hard in a long tine.) I think I'm going to be up this weekend the mother-in-law wants me to take her to Atkin lake. What happened Sunday didn't see you. I hope every thing is ok. How's your dog, you said he wasn't feeling well.

Frog- it was nice to meet you this last weekend, thanks for stopping by and introducing yourself. About a dozen more weekends like this last one would make my summer!
Take care,
fish

So were are these fish? We usually go all the way back to the end of the lake. And have good luck back there. I've seen people fishing all over the place. I know its not a very deep lake, is there some structure? Were are the walleye. My mother-in-law wants me to take her over there this weekend so if you can put me on some fish I'd appreciate it. She likes cane polling for sunnies. If it would be better e-mail me at [email protected]

My best advice back there would be to grab a edge and start heading towards the back part. Will you be up late on friday again?

Sand,
I'm going to try and get out of work on friday night. If so we'll be up around 7-7:30. And what edge are you talking about? Will I need a blue rag? Or a towel in a target bag.

What part of Texas are they from? My father-in-law is a Dallas cop. And my wife loves to fish as much as I do so it's hard for me to fish with out her. LOL. But she understands that I need my time with the guys also. Maybe you could bring your wife down and she could hang out with my wife while we all go fishing. (we got a hot tub. Sand bring yours to.)

Sand
I might have to work now so we'll be up late Friday night. I know I need to get gas for the boat and some bait. What time does Big Sandy Sports open on Saturday? Do you want to hit Aitkin on saturday?

Thanks guys for the offer to hit the lake together, however, I'm going to have to pass. My sister and nephews are up from Texas, and since I really don't get to see them very much, I'm going to hang out with them this coming weekend. Also, I think my wife would kill me if I went out for the day and fished. If any of you guys are married how do you get away with it?

Last weekend we caught around a dozen northerns, 3lb being the biggest. Has anyone caught any decent size northerns on this lake before? Also caught 8 little eyes. Catch and release of course. Hopefully someday these pounders will grow to be 4-5lb's, but the way it's been for the last 23 years I don't think that'll ever happen. I've fished Big Sandy since I was 6 year old, and the biggest eye I've ever caught was 3lb. That's down right sad.
I really wish the DNR would do more with this lake. It's such a great lake, but gets a lot of pressure during the summer months. That's my 2 cents, have a good one guys.

Fish,
At least you are catching! I bring my wife with when she wants to go and also we have two boys and I usually bring one or both. Take years to get away with it if that really ever happens.

Scum,

I will post back before the weekend.

      Some pockets of slush on the east end. Only came upon one spot that covered a large area, most were small spots.  Walking on the lake was not to bad, snow is light and fluffy.  I didn’t see anything that would stop me, but not sure how far of a trek you have.
    • SkunkedAgain
      How is the snowpack and slush looking these days? I'm looking to walk into my place on the west end one of these weekends but don't want to make the trek in knee-deep powder or thigh-deep slush!
    • SkunkedAgain
      That would be a lot of work to get done in three months, assuming that they can even get a GC to line up all of the subs. October sounds more realistic. Looks like I'll have to find other ways to support the local businesses in town. I might have to send Mrs. SkunkedAgain and Miss SkunkedAgain to the girl store a few times with a wad of cash.
    • SkunkedAgain
      As soon as humanely possible. We have a seasonal cabin that we use year-round, an no road access. Therefore like PSU, we are bound by the ice-out to determine our first open water trip. If I had road access, it would likely be determined by other factors such as snow on the driveway, etc.   If you have plumbing pipes, that is another concern. We haul in our water so I don't have to worry about pipes bursting. About six years ago, I did hook up my lake pump at opener at left it filled with water. When I came back for Memorial Day, the iron housing had cracked due to water freezing.   My general advice is to not avoid the in-between times. They are often the best. Less people are around, you get to see the land and the lake change, when the ice goes out you get to see eagles and other scavengers pick up all the floating winter-kill fish, green starts popping up everywhere, etc. It's a fun time to be in the woods and around the lake. Canoeing through ice or boating through black ice is always a hoot as well!

      Smurfy has fish with his name on them. He must have put another order into Morries.

      I know!!😊 but I ain't got anyone to shovel.😞 and after tomorrow's snow I'm hearing grumbling of a huge magor storm for the weekend.
    • BobT
      Does the handle fit otherwise? If so, rather than wait for the OEM to send a screw, I would most likely have gone down to my local Fleet Farm or Menards and found a SS screw to fit. I wouldn't get my shorts too much in a bunch over it.

      but are the northerns making flags go up?

      Brokie - Without knowing where you are located, I can not recommend a reel shop, is what I recommend doing.  A reel repair shop should be able to help you with your problem.  West side of the TC, Wayzata Bait and Tackle, for example.
