Sugar Fishing Reports


Recommended Posts

Anyone fish Sugar yet this year? Hoping to hear some reports for bass and northern. I wish this stinkin weather would warm up so the fish get more active.

We were out on the 22nd looking for wallies and crappie. We weren't getting any action working the mid-lake humps so we tried trolling the shore in about 10-12' and were getting some nice accidental bass & northern. We managed to pick up the largest crappie I've seen come out of that lake, thing was almost 14" long!

I am heading out there tonight for some eyes. I will let you know how it goes. Fishing was pretty slow last week. Hoping this weather warms up the water a little bit and maybe fish will become more active.

Very nice night on the water last night. Not much boat traffic and just enough fish to keep it interesting.
We spent the whole night chasing walleye but end up catching more northern than anything. We fished 16-24 feet and end up with 4 northern and 2 walleye. Surface temp was 64.

Well my partner and I came away $100 richer ($50 each) last night from league. Caught an 8 1/2 inch bluegill that won the big fish pot. Glad there was that 2 week carryover. The bass were certainly biting. Nothing huge to report but our boat got a 18 and 2 17's. There was another league out there too. Don't think they had as good a luck with the bass as our league. Someone in there league did have a legal muskie. Somewhere around 40"s. The funniest part of our fishing last night was we caught around 30-40 bass and 95% came from a 6' by 4' area. Boy it's fun when you find them like that. 3 small northerns were measured. You would have thought with the sign the lake association has up to keep the small northerns they would have been jumping on our lines. We never really tried for them. No wallleyes caught.

Sugar is a really good muskie lake. There are some real pigs in there. I would suggest that if you go to try and go sometime during the week, on the weekends there are way to many people out there to try and get any good fishing in. If you have to go on the weekend get there early, like before the sun comes up so you can beat the crowd.

PS. caught a 46" last thursday bass fishing on a 4" worm in 3 feet of water.

jeffy,

so what kind of spot was the 4'x6' area? deep, shallow?
Does anyone catch any big bass on Sugar? Thinking about heading out this weekend?
Do any of you walleye guys catch big bass out deep?

Hella

Think of the type of area where water might come into or go out of a lake.

I was out fishing on monday and tuesday nights and got some smaller bass. Found them in deeper water. Last year we got quite a few decent sized bass around 3 pounds. They were all in deep water biting on tubes. Let us know how you do.

Hey Hella, I used to live on sugar. If you use the south access,(which I would as it has easily three times the parking spots.)go out from the access and follow the weedline and rushes on your left untill you get on the west shore, you will see a little creek mouth. It goes back to some docks in a little bay area. If you go slow enough and have a small enough boat you can get back there. otherwise there are some heavy bullrushes with an out flowage behind it on the more north west side of the lake that would work also. Sugar is a great bass lake, lots of nice sized bass in it. Pitching just about anything along the rushes and around docks has caught us a lot of fish. Although being a very clear lake I have found natural colors to be best. Big Mo, For the ski's I have seen them in the bays in the spring feeding on crappies but this time of year when it starts to get hot everyone fishes them just south of the r.v park bay area on the west side where the water gets deep from shore real fast. Hope this helps

Well i caught a bunch of bass, but not much size on the 4th. Not sure if i found the 4'x6' spot, are they there all the time Jeffy? Or is it a hit and miss thing? Any tips on finding the bigger fish?

Sugar was great last night. Especially the last 30 minutes around dusk.

Great bass action up shallow, and some solid pike on out on the deep weedline.
Bass came on Senkos, and the pike were hot after a T-rigged Black/Blue power craw.

      You could do Isanti to St. Francis also.  About mid way is Anderson Park that has a small sandy access.  Anderson Park to St. Francis had fewer but some bigger fish while Isanti to Anderson Park had better numbers and not as many big fish.   All upstream from Isanti to the access on Hwy 95 can be hit or miss but if you hit it, it can be good.   Up to 16’s is fairly common bit there are enough 16-20’s to not be shocked if you get one or more.   I’d never admit to this while I lived there. 😉

      Some pressure but nothing like lake fishing

      Hey thanks guys, I appreciate your input. It sounds like this float might be best to put off a year when the water is up a little higher. I'll check the gage next summer and see how it looks. I was hoping to get into some 18 to 20" fish (aren't we all), so maybe they will have moved back in there by then.   Does the stretch south of St. Francis get very much pressure on it? I'll have to give it a look.    
    • Kettle
      Little more narrow up there, if I were to do it, I'd float St Francis to Andover. Shallow yes but it's a good stretch to fish

      I fished it further south near Milaca/Princeton a couple times in late July.  It was OK then but dropping.  The second time we definitely bumped more rocks and grounded out in a couple riffles.  I use a 10 foot jon boat that can float through a couple inches of water.  We caught 15-20 smallmouth both times, but nothing over 16 inches.  I think the drought last year sent the bigger fish out of there.  It may take a few years to recover.   You can check the flow on the DNR website.  There is a live gauge right in Onamia.  Anything below 11 feet is too low for me.   https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/waters/csg/site.html?id=21018002

      Water is really low. It’s definitely doable, but there will be a lot of spots you’ll have to get out and pull. Fallen trees in low water might be your biggest obstacle. Should be plenty of smallies to catch. They’ll be concentrated in any deep pools you come across.

      Lol he broke a muskie drought that had started in 2006.  16 years without a legal muskie!

      Well you're are! 😆 Step 4 Your satirical essays should be humorous.
    • Caleb9
      Not too long ago, I found synthesis paper topics here. I may be exaggerating, but this is one of the best topic ideas sites I have found in the last few years.
    • Caleb9
      Satirical essays employ humor, hyperbole, irony and irony to poke fun at a subject. These essays are often directed at celebrities, politicians and current events. Although satirical essays are intended to entertain, the writer of satire often seeks out useful, relevant, and eye-opening information. You can learn how to write satirically by understanding the styles and purpose of your content.   Step 1 Pick a topic. You should choose the  satirical essay topics that is absurd or ironic. Your goal is to make your subject absurd, much like a caricature artist who exaggerates his subject's facial features. To get ideas, you might look at political cartoons in Sunday's paper.   Step 2 Hyperbole can be used to prove your point. Hyperbole can be used to exaggerate facts. However, it does not mean lying. It is important to keep to the facts but to use hyperbole to emphasize the absurdity of them. One example of this might be "Andy Garbo consumes a lot of coffee each year to keep his Folgers stock profitable." Although this is obviously hyperbole, it's meant to convey an exaggerated point regarding Andy.   Step 3 To present your ideas, use irony. Irony refers to the use of words and phrases to express something that is not what you really mean or an incongruity between what the person expects and actually happens. Irony can be expressed as "He's kind enough steal from the poor to help his pocketbook." This becomes ironic when the word "kind enough" is used. Because of its sarcastic tone, irony makes a great tool for satirical essays.   Step 4 Your satirical essays should be humorous. While not all satire can be funny, pointing out the absurdities of your topic can help you to get people to think differently or make your point faster. Humor is a great way to get people to respond quicker, especially if you make them see the absurdity in the same way as you.   Learn more at: https://proessays.net/blog/40-witty-topics-for-a-satirical-essay
