Lake Sarah


Recommended Posts

Has anyone fished Sarah lately? I want to get out there with my 5 year-old boy Lucas and fish for some gills and crappies on sunday evening. What depth are they biting?

2-4 feet of water on the north sides of both lakes and around the reeds!

I went out this sunday morning for a couple hours. Was off the lake by 7:30. Boy is that lake THICK with the weeds. I think it must be that curly leaf pond weed, which dies off soon, because when I started fishing Sarah last July, the weeds were nowhere near as thick as they were now, and the lake was not clear at all. But the lake was pretty clear today, which leads me to believe that the weeds will die off, decompose, and make the lake more turbid. The sunnies were very active on the outside weed edges in about 12-14 FOW. A tipped flu-flu below a float did the trick. Just wanted to pre-fish before I brought 5 year old son Lucas out there tonight...he should have a blast!

Just curious...are the thick mats of weeds out on Sarah the norm for this time of year?

I haven't been out this year, but in the past yes it has been thick.

Yes they are! In july they're pretty much gone and the water gets greener. That's when the fishing heats up as far as I'm concerned. The curly leafed pondweed sucks when you get stuck in it!

Had a great time this weekend fishing Sarah. Saturday I went out in the afternoon with cyberfish, and hammered the Bulls. Found them on the inside weedegde in 4-5 FOW using paddletail type jigs and flu-flu's. We also found them on sand/gravel bottom on their beds. Got into some nice white crappies as well; saw some big dogfish shallow too. We had fun using those Rebel crickets and bumblebee cranks. You can use 'em as a topwater, which is always a blast, or crank 'em in...they have a nice wobble to them that the fish found irresistable. Then I brought my family out last night for just two hours and did equally well...of course, when you got kids in the boat there are always tangled lines and rebaiting hooks, but sure is fun to see the smile on their faces when they bring in fish! Lucas had a big ol'dogfish on, but broke away after about a minute.

      Water level is going down, but slowly.  My dock frame was 6" underwater last week and I can just see it above water today.  It's going to take time.

      My lil island front iron crib dock also under bout six inches. No Good! Lil higher than this time May 2008.  😮😮🥅🏒😮 No good to drop west dock for lifts as that would be under also n lift rails n pads be just but under water.  No Good! Marauder Boys miss the lake too. Happened before in my 26 years out there n will happen again so we just deal doing other stuff off lake n enjoy it all. Fun being a Shore Rat for shallow Crappies around home lakes. Bust a move n keep in the Grove. 🏒🥅🤩 We figure by anniversary June 12 th level drop enuff we sneek out in smaller Lund n fix up n open up? 🤩 Best of luck to ya but be safe. This lake is deeper n darker than you or I know…🤩 Big Smiles n Keep on Rocken! T    Did'nt intend to have pic so big....Geeezzz.

      We’re in the same boat. Actually I’d like to be in any boat. Our island cabin dock frame is about six inches under water. I hear that water is not rising which gives hope it will fall but I think Memorial Day is too optimistic, at least for us. You should think about other plans?

      looking to do some kayak bass fishing on Clearwater lake by Annandale. Are there any Other landings other than the one on the far south west end? Was wondering how the fishing is on the east end but that is a heck of a paddle. Appreciate any feedback.

      Water levels seems to be topic of the day. I'm visiting over Memorial Day week. Docks are not in on the island where I stay. Wondering if the water is going down? What do the rivers look like? Are they just pouring our water?? Is water level 6" lower than a few days ago?

      Finding plenty of fish around the area lately. Water on most of our area lakes and rivers is very high. Most of the panfish have moved from those back bay areas and are staging for the spawn. You can find the pannies tucked in the weeds right now close to those spawning beds. Casting small jigs without a float to pockets of vegetation or to outside the pencil reeds has been working well.
