Lake Andrew

Recommended Posts

My family and I are heading to Lake Andrew for a vacation next week. I've never been on this lake before, but would like to chase a few walleyes around. Any suggestions? It is a family trip, so tips on panfish or bass hangouts would also be welcomed. Thanks.

Was at Lake Andrew on the 11th - 13th. There are two or three rock piles out from the public landing in about 16.5" of water. A good place to start for the walleyes. Early morning seemed best. Also caught walleyes trolling cranks in shallow water after dark. Good luck. It is a nice little lake

Thanks for the info Gerty. How shallow were you trolling? Did you need to use planer boards or were you okay just pulling them right behind the boat? Just curious. Hopefully we'll have better luck than on Lura.

We were in real shallow - 7' to 8' feet up against the bull rushes. It was full moon and high pressure when we were up there. Don't know if that changes anything. No planar boards. That would be kind of hard at night anyway! Didn't do much for any size to the sun fish and bass. I think they are in there, we just didn't do much.

Good Luck Dan!

I used to fish Lake Andrew all the time with my grandpa. That was 10 years ago though. We caught a lot of sunfish down the shore line from the boat landing.
I went to the tech school in Alex in 2001- 2002. Me and a couple of buddy's decided to ice fish on Andrew one weekend. We did alright with walleyes...well I did anyways! When you leave the boat landing go a little to the right and about 150 yards out. There are a few rock piles and I did alright there for eyes. For the sunfish...my gradpa would just go to the right of the boat landing a little farther down from the rock piles and stay about a 150 yards out in 12- 18 feet of water. Once he would locate fish we would drop anchor and be entertained all day! Really nice little lake and you also have a very good chance of getting a few nice fat northerns. Watch when you reel up your sunfish. The northerns tend to do that on that lake!
Good Luck!

      +1 on the trim tab being the issue.

      Did you do anything to the lower unit? Trim tab might need adjusting.

      Another weekend is in the books. The guys in the cabins did all right but the fishing did slow. maybe due to the water getting stirred up from the winds and the cold front that moved through.. today Monday looks like its shaping up to be a beautiful day. ken is here for a couple days and scott and his parents are coming tomorrow for a day or two. The kids will be coming for the holiday weekends so I guess I better get the boat in the water this week. I held off due to the low water but the park was able to jump through some hoops and dig out the channel so I think I'm ok.  The access was crazy busy yesterday and I still have no clue where they all come from. I guess its just a combination of  other resorts and people with cabins with in 100 mile radius.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!

      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!
