Ice depth on Sand yesterday was anywhere from 11-15 inches in the areas I fished. Two full size pickup trucks were moving around much of the lake. Fishing was tough, many lookers and few takers.

Last night at this time we were floating in a boat, and the wind had just turned to the NE and we got skunked. After a 6 hour drive back wish I was still at Sand. It was a weird week and a tough bite. Water temps started at 63 and ended at 70. Air temps were close to 80 all week. Just the opposite of a mid Sept outing. Managed some walleye from 11-19 in. with most coming in 25-30 f.o.w. on nightcrawler harnesses while ROW trolling. We had some in the evening on med. suckers. Only managed a few Perch in the panfish division. Had a heck of a bug hatch 3 nights in a row. Looked like it was raining,but just them coming to the surface. Good luck to all.....even the trees are dropping their leaves early.

AS always there are nice fish in this lake but it is real finicky... fished about 6 hours last Tuesday... 1 mid 30s musky, one small Tiger or very odd pattern northern pike, and three nice Bass.. biggest football Smallmouth at least 3,5 lbs.. all on underwater moving baits.. Plenty of buggy wips but all other grasslines/weedlines dead or dying. Never made it over to north/ west flat... concentrated on boat docks and rock points, away from most developed end of this small lake
