Heading little Sand on the Bow String 05/28/04

Recommended Posts

Guest

We will be up that way for a week. I normally fish the Pool 4 on the river in SE MN. I haven't had the chance to fish this area before.I am not looking for secerate spots, but just some good genral info.
Normaly fish cranks behind leadcore and 3 way with cranks and floaters.
Is there a good fish quantity and quality on this lake?
Is the cut between the 2 sands deep enough to get through?
During this time of year should we look deep or shallow?
Any info will be great and if I can I will try to get some info that week or diffently when I get Back out for this lake.
Thanks
Aaron

your best bet that time of the year is get a 1/8 oz fireball or gumball in a high visability color and jig away. look to the shoreline to produce most of your fish. there are some sunken humps just out from shore that might stsrt producing but I would concentrate on the shoreline. look mostly shallow.
good luck
Jason

What type of bait works good up on this lake?
Sounds as if it is going to be cold nights for a while.
Is it deep enough to go from big to little sand?
Thanks
Aaron

You can get through the channel. Lift your motor and go slow. The little lake is a basic bowl but can be a hot bite this time of year. Big Sand has a lot of structure. Say HEY to my brother (Bud)

The shiners have worked well in the past for walleye if you can get them past the Northern. The only problem I seem to have is keeping them alive. You almost have to use them the same day you buy them, plus the're kinda spendy up in that area. As far as getting into Big Sand from Little Sand, we'll just have to use the trolling moter, My moter doesn't have tilt. Another problem we ran into last year when the water was low is the dead heads, they were only about 12.5" under the surface. Didn't hit any don't want to eather. A couple of good heavy rains might help things out, but for the week of the 29th were running out of time. Het Tebassco' when you say your brother Bud, are you refering to AnchorInn Bud?

Have been going to that area for about 20 years and have always had good luck. Sand and little Sand are famous for walleye and "lots" of northerns. Take a lot of jigs the northerns will bit off quite a few.

You can buy a Hot Spots map of the area and it will show some of the early season fish locations. Stick to the jig and shiner or live bait slip sinker rig. The past few years we have started using red #6 hooks on the live bait rigs, they work great.

Good Luck and say Hi to Bud from the Iowans.

      Fished the SW corner today about 2 miles out. Lowest amount of ice I found was 10" and a few spots well over 20". Before anyone gets too excited I'm pretty sure these spots were where the ice push up on itself or below itself. Rough ice in general. Marked a lot of fish, tried everything and eventually got a few at dusk on a dead stick and a spoon. No big cracks but a few about half a foot and completely open. Nice to get out but was a long walk out and back.

      Well I wish you guys would do it after walleye closes. The last few years you guys have done it on the final weekend of walleye  so some people won't do it . Cats don't close so you can do it whenever you want.

      Dakota lithium has a cool little box like that.  Comes with a lithium battery thats half the weight but a bit pricey at around $200

      Didn't get to swing the sledge on Saturday. Had a bum ankle that has kept me sidelined and was feeling pretty good on Friday so I got out and about shopping. May have over did it and suffered a little bit of a set back but it's pretty good today. Should be able to swing the hammer tomorrow.

      Open water right in front of launch on linwood. 2 guys went through this morning. Up to their waists in water. Just be careful walking out. Had 9 inches everywhere I drilled on the lake.
