crane and sand point bite

Recommended Posts

Enids Hubby

Hello,
will be heading to Crane Lake for the week on Saturday. I usually fish Crane, Sand Point, Little Vermillion and East end of Namaken, the U.S. sides. Was curious if anyone is having any luck with the Walleyes in these areas. was up earlier this year and walleye action was slow but the Northerns are biting good.
Thanks

EH
I dont here much about Crane and Sandpoint, I'm surprised nobody from there ever posts info, oh well, there loss.

Namakan has been the better lake for walleyes
as of late, on the East end, I know the Blind Pig Narrows is a talked about area, although I'm not familiar with it. I'd fish reefs at about 28' plus for eyes, and deep water adjacent to shallow weedy bays for pike, it never hurts to try jerk baits or husky jerks in the shallows for lots of fun and action. Good luck, guts <{{{{{><

We were up last weekend July 25-27. Fishing has been slow, had our best luck on Little Vermilion south of the narrows. Also had some success at the Vermilion Gorge for walleye and smallmouth mainly using jigs, spinners and plain hooks with leeches and crawlers. One morning tried Swansons bay on Sand Point for northerns with crank baits caught nothing but hammer handles. But the wildlife show was fabulous. Watched two different families of Otters in and out of the water doing their antics and a pair of Eagles feeding their nestlings. My wife and I don’t fish that hard usually a few hours in the morning but just enjoy being out on the water at sunrise.

Thanks for responding Guts and Iguy,
Guts, I know the blind pig channel area and will give that a try , usually has a lot of boat traffic but if the fish bite it does'nt matter.
Iguy, I never thought of the gorge this time of the year , I'll check it out . Little Vermillion always seems to produce some walleye, I should have some luck there.
Even if the fish are'nt biting I can't think of a better area to spend vacation.
Happy Fishin

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.
