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.

      My second year owning a cabin on Pine Island and this lake is humbling. We did ok Memorial weekend catching many small ones. I did catch my best walleye on the lake with a 24” off the dock. Didn’t do well this last weekend as it sounds I shouldn’t have forgot the leeches in the fridge. I hope to have better luck this weekend. It is still tough to have to come home and go back to work.

      I have got to find out how to do this photo shop stuff. It would be fun pranking the relatives on FB. No really I did catch those walleyes Machu Picchu!  😂

      Hey, I recognize that spot!! I caught a couple fish there once!!
    • eyeguy 54
      Got the boat upgraded with  different depth finders and trolling motor so I could chase walter and had to test it today. Hit a local lake with a friend and we got 7.  Pulled spinners and slow death with 1 oz bouncers. First time after eyes with this boat.

      How did the pizza taste? I'm thinking that might not be too bad!

      Bowkill78, Most everything is going some place on the Clearwater lake. Bass, pike and walleyes. It all depends on your choice of equipment and what you hope to try for.  Panfish and bass are on beds, trolling can also hookup with a pike or walleye.

      Give them all a shot you will be there for 5 days.  Get a lake map before you go and look it over. It makes it easier for the resort folks to point out spots instead of just saying over there. 😀
