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

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.

      Saw on MPR that this year had been even warmer than 2012.  If this weather pattern continues, Lake V will be ice out before the March 28th date from 2012.

      Awesome fish. Way to go.
    • gimruis
      That is a true giant slab around here.
    • chucker1101
      I did a lot of crappie fishing in 2012.   I'd say April 1 is a conservative guess. March 25 seems doable. Depends on the rain and the wind in March.

      Do you park at The Landing or have someplace closer? That would be a hall from The Landing!

      I hate to start this thread early, but this ice doesn't have much of a chance this season. It's about half as thick as it should be, there is no snow cover to protect it from the March sun, and it continues to be abnormally warm. Let's hear those ice-out predictions.   I expect the smaller bays to be open by the last weekend of March with the main lake soon after, likely prior to April 1st. Earliest ice-out on record is March 28th, 2012.   On the plus side, the spawn be done long before fishing opener. Combine the reduced walleye harvest with the longer growing season, and this should translate into a better walleye class for the lake.

      I walked into my place late Friday night. It was beautiful - a full moon, no snow and single digits so the lake was making all kinds of noise, wolves howling, and the kicker.....no wind. The only difficult component to walking was the ATV and snowmobile impressions left in the ice. Every once in a while my foot would catch a rise in the ice and I would stumble and almost fall. Besides that, it was a perfect night. Unfortunately I had a schedule to keep, otherwise I would have started a midnight bonfire to stay out and enjoy the evening even longer.
