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.

      I also have a north facing cabin at the bottom of the hill and I have the Weboost as well.  without it I just barely have reception and with it mounted to the outside of the cabin I can get enough reception for calla and texts (2-3 bars) and slow internet. I plan on mounting it in a tree this spring and should get better reception yet. I paid $399 at best buy for mine about a year ago.

      cg2, Welcome to the forum.   You may try looking at the DNR Lake finder site to look up some of the lakes in your new area for their test results.  Good luck.

      Hello all,   I am new to the area and don't know where to begin fishing. I'm looking for a lake around Mankato that has walleye / crappies in it. I would like to make it out a few times this fall yet and then hit the ice hard. Any advice on what lakes to start with? There's so many that I don't know how to choose which one to go to.

      Gonna try and get out for a bit over the weekend and hit some shore spots. Will post a report if they bite.

      Arrowed my first in the fall of 1968, just a few days ago it seems. Last year did not go. This year not going. I could write a book with memories from archery and rifle and slug.   Withdrawals are bad but been slug hunting with son in laws family for 3 years now.  That is helping the addiction big time.  I wish you all, whatever kind of kill that deer method you prefer,  a nice smelly gut pile.

      Hows the action. Got out a couple times and it was fun.

      Thinking of trying a few spots like this tomorrow. I’ve covered the whole lake so hopefully that works. I know once I find em I’ll hammer them 
    • eyeguy 54
      I have good luck on a couple spots with steep drop offs and weeds close to the drop. I anchor shallow and cast out to the drop.
