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.

      Same here, our 1st color unit, 520 c(?), had that type of transducer(blue/5 pin) & it didn't last 1, maybe 2 seasons. We replaced it & the 2nd lasted much longer.

      I had a lot of problems with Lowrance transducers of that sort of vintage, the ones with the blue connectors.   It seemed to me that they didn't deal well with being frozen.   Now I store my transducers inside in the winter (I know that isn't possible when ice fishing).   I went through 3 or 4 transducers before realizing the problem.   Try borrowing a transducer to try.   Sounds exactly like what mine did.  Gradually lost sensitivity and would lose the bottom.

      Conditions for snowmobile riding in many parts of the state are as good as they’ve been in a long time, prompting what Department of Natural Resources conservation officers call the biggest number of riders in years to hit the state’s 22,000 miles of snowmobile trails. While zipping around on a sled is a great way to experience Minnesota’s snow-covered outdoors, Enforcement officials remind riders to leave the booze on the shelf or in the refrigerator until after they’re done riding. Alcohol is a factor in more than 70 percent of snowmobile-related fatalities in Minnesota. And it isn’t just intoxicated drivers who pay the price for their bad decisions. Earlier this month, Eric Coleman was sentenced to 12.5 years in prison for a tragic incident last year when the snowmobile he was driving struck and killed 8-year-old Alan Geisenkoetter Jr. Coleman, who was drunk and whose driver’s license was revoked when he crashed into the boy, had multiple previous DWIs in a motor vehicle. The incident prompted state lawmakers to close loopholes in the state’s DWI law. “We hope the increased penalties for people convicted of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence will cause them to think twice before drinking and riding. But they won’t bring back Alan or heal the damage this senseless crash caused his family,” said Jen Mueller, a regional training officer in the DNR Enforcement Division and the agency’s Enforcement Education Officer of the Year. “There’s never an excuse to drink and drive and we have no tolerance for people who do it.” The new law – Little Alan’s Law – went into effect Aug. 1, 2018. It means people convicted of driving while intoxicated – regardless of the vehicle they’re driving – lose their driver’s license and are prohibited from operating motor vehicles, including all-terrain vehicles, motorboats and snowmobiles. Before the law change, people convicted of DWI in a highway-licensed vehicle still could legally operate ATVs, motorboats and snowmobiles. The changes apply to violations that occurred on or after Aug. 1, 2018. The DNR anticipates Little Alan’s Law will affect more than 2,000 people each month in Minnesota. But since the law requires a DWI conviction – and these cases take time to move through the court system – specific numbers aren’t yet available.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
