Sauk Lake Info

Recommended Posts

Trytti

Going to be coming up to Sauk Lake this weekend to try to do some fishing and hopefully not freeze anything off.

Any word on how the bite has been? I prefer to fish walleyes, but any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Haven't fished it for walleye but I had been catching some sunnies and crappies out there. Not much for size though, lots of sorting to get a meal. Good luck!!!

Thanks for the info! Know anyone that would want to rent their shack out for the weekend? We are going to probably be going to be fishing out of portables but I would gladly pay cash to use someone's during the day with the forecast being what it is.

The resort is all booked up so we don't have a lot of options...

Thanks

Walleye fishing on Sauk was fastg and furious for a while at dutchmans but now it has slowed down quite abit, if your planning on targeting walleyes fish about 32' of water with glow jigs(red) and RAINBOW CHUBS - NOT SHINERS!.... Good luck... and i was wondering what resort you tried gettin a fishing trip though? Big Jim's? Well good luck... I'll be out there this weekend more than likely on the north end by diamond point in the "Red Barn Bay" targeting crappies... My house is red and white stripped (knida like a candy cane) if you see me there stop by i have a red S10... Good luck

Thanks for the info. We ended up going to Osakis because I found a shack up there. Fishing sucked. Marking some fish but couldn't get them to bite.

My buddies went back to Sauk and fished for sunnies and crappies with no luck either...

O well, there is always next time.

      We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot.👍👍     Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂

      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.
