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.

Fishing this lake next week. Any tips would be appreciated. Never fished this lake before. Not looking to keep fish, just catch and release. Interested in Walleye, Musky, gills. PM would be best.

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

Fished this past week mostly targeting 'eyes.Tried motor trolling using crank baits with no success. Had to go back to row trolling 20-25fow to get action  and they preferred crawler harnesses. At night once again draggin crawlers had the best results. Having trouble getting sucker minnows in the area. According to Hayward bait higher water making it tough to seine the ponds. We did not have much action on minnows. Didnt catch enough pannies for a meal but with the new Walleye regs managed enough for a couple fresh fishfrys. Water temps starting low 70's and ended in mid 60's. Larry your new hotspot only produce a Smallie

Just wondering if anyone's been out on Sand and what the ice/snow situation is. Planning a weekend trip coming up and hope we can get around with our 4 wheeler.

Was up this past week. With the warm and windy conditions did a lot of drifting in the 20-25 fow. Walleye, no legals, and Perch were down there, but werent really hammering the bait,. Just felt like something was hanging on the line. Used crawlers and deep diving crank baits on the drift. At night sucker minnows worked under slip bobbers . No luck on Crappies or Smallies. Water temps were in the high 60's all week, and the bugs were biting...turned your lights on after dark and they were all over you ...along with the Bats.

Was up last week attempting to fish. Heavy rain, wind, more rain and wind,did I mention power outages, then freezing temps really gave the fish lockjaw,and had us scratching our heads as to what bait to throw at 'em .Water level is up about a foot, and water temps started in the high 60's, and by the end of the week upper 50's. Worked for them ,but only ended up with a few eyes,smallies and crappies all CPR. Tight lines.

Had a short evening trip to Sand last Friday. Only fishing for a few hours had 4 different follows. All action was on outside edges of cabbage in about 10 feet of water. All follows came on bulldawgs worked erratically. Most fish were 38 to 42ish. Water temps were in the upper 70s. Good Luck

Anyone been around here. Wondering what the ice situation is. I was there 2 weeks ago and the boat landing was opening up and I would assume the same where the creek comes in. Keeping my fingers crossed for opening weekend.

Nice to see a little activity on the Sand Lake board (even though there really hasn't been much fishing!). I was up last weekend checking my propane level and saw a couple groups out on the lake. One was over by the boat ramp - perhaps by the deep hole, but I really couldn't tell (I'm on the other side of the lake). I was surprised to see a Suburban type vehicle out in front of the long reed bar with several guys out fishing. I assume that the snow must have blown off at least a little in that part. On my part of the lake, travel is out unless you have a snowmobile ( which I don't).
