Sand lake is producing a good number of fish but we have to sort out a lot of small fish to get the keepers. They are going on jig and minnow or a lindy rig with a leech.

Good luck fishing!

Sand lake has been good with the fish coming in at 10-13 ft of water with a jig and minnow. It has been good fishing up here with the lakes all biting most of the time.

Sand was decent with most fish coming in at 10-13 ft of water with a jig and minnow. I was on the humps and bars on sand and never really tried the shoreline I would guess there was fish there too.

The heat up here just doesn’t let up. It’s a good thing the fish are cooperating so far. Fished Sand one day and all the fish were in the weeds that we caught in that 9-10ft area. I was using a jig and minnow or a Northland spinner with minnows as the bait of choice.

Walleye fishing has been good this year on sand lake. the main lake structures seem to be the best places to fish at this time. we are using spinner rigs. along with a bottom bouncer or slip sinker. and best colors we found are gold-firetiger and rainbow. we have been using crawlers to get our walleyes. lots in the 13 to 15 inch range, but you can find some larger one. just need to keep moving around. you will also find lots of Northerns and Perch to take your bait.

Sand lake has picked up with the fish being caught in mostly deeper water 15-23 ft but we are also getting some fish in the weeds with the perch in 6-8 ft. I have been using a 1/8 oz northland gumball for most of my fishing.

Sand Lake is starting to show signs of coming alive. Look for walleye in 9 to 11 ft range. If the small pike are to overwhelming try using chub minnows, you'll catch less pike and more walleyes.

Using lake-link to help book a guide for this trip, Charlie's Gone Fishing Guide Service put us on the fish in not so good conditions. My now retired mom, inexperienced wife and cloudy rainy sometimes thundering weather all challenged Charlie. Yet we caught several small northern pike (targeted species for Mom), fifteen pretty respectable perch and six walleye just right for the fish fry. All told with released fish the action was steady with hardly any downtime. Spinner rigs tipped with crawlers and minnows worked the best, but the depths varied from eight to twenty feet. Mostly rockies, a big crappie and numerous perch were taken from around the cribs with small jigs jigged vertical. After the days fishing, cleaning, and dodging raindrops, Charlie whipped up a delicious shore lunch that will be hard to beat! I certainly recommend Charlie, his wife Terri, Freds bait in Deer River and the countless friendly folks that made this retirement gift a huge success. I'm planning the next trip as I write!
