If the guy in the F150 that I talked to Saturday morning while struggling to find a place to park in the un-plowed parking lot is on LL, you should shoot me a PM. Curious as to how you did out in the basin of that lake...

Fished a staging location that I did really well at this time last year on Saturday, ~25 fow near a deep weedline on the edge of a deeper basin. Seems that the crappies have started their migration but aren't quite there yet (not sure what it was like in the basin). Most crappies were in the 9-11" range, didn't find any of the big girls that I know are around. Nothing happening on tip-downs, everything came on waxies which is never a good sign. No consistency in color, tried natural and bright UV, glow and non-glow, 3mm-6mm, was kind of a tough bite.

Travel conditions were great, snow and almost all the slush was gone and no ice was lost with the last warm-up. This warm-up is gonna put a beating on the shorelines.

Stay thirsty my friends!

Finding the fish hasn't been an issue, and lake travel was actually a lot better this weekend. But overall ice conditions are deteriorating quickly. Had about 4" of ice/slush under the snow and another 4-6" of water under the slush. Holes would fill up with water as you drilled them, pretty much needed a gas-powered auger to get through. Not sure what's going to happen with the rain and warm-up this week, probably going to make conditions even worse.

Fish were tighter to the bottom, 20-30' down but still active. White, pink and red jigs and plastics worked best with tip-downs producing a few.

30" of snow, 6" of slush and finally 24" of ice - stopped by 4 lakes Saturday afternoon before finding one worth the effort to access. Most lakes don't even have the boat landing plowed out, let alone a path onto the lake.

Finally made it to a fishing hole around 4, big thanks to the snowmobiler who brought me out to the spot. No way I would have walked all the way out to it if it weren't for him! Fortunately first hole, first drop they were hammering the plastics. Felt like a late season crappie bite. Should be a great second half of the season if this keeps up. Fished 25-35 fow with most fish caught 10-15' below the ice. White and pink polka dot tungsten with a pink noodle plastic.

When we come up to fish in September musky is what we fish for, the last 5 or so years the size and numbers has been down. Last September I did catch 5 northerns over 30 inches though. We bring Dad up to fish in 1972 he caught a 52 inch musky. We do fish for crappies during the week at least one day. Usually catch enough for a good meal.Still might try to get up before season is over.

Yep, word got out maybe 5-6 years ago and it got completely destroyed!  Everybody and their brother crammed into a 100' circle and kept every crappie...until there were....none.

I fished sand a couple last year with my son. We caught lots of fish both times but they ran awful short. We got crappie and perch. Fished the community hole. Left of the landing toward the other end of the lake.

Voldie - saw your post on the Sand Lake page and wish I could help but I've never been out there. Just about every time I drive past it on my way home I think about stopping at the bar next to the lake to see if they have any info but I haven't gotten around to it. I never see anyone out there fishing, just some snowmobile tracks onto the lake and it does look like someone was out there earlier this season. Someone told me it is mainly a musky lake, but musky gotta eat something too!

Was a cold one Saturday morning, fortunately my game plan came together as I hoped. Found crappies suspended 10' down and bluegill hugging the bottom. Tungsten and white little atom nuggie was the go-to, they were active enough that anything probably would have worked. Had to move around for the crappie, gills kept me occupied in the shack long enough to warm up between hole hopping. Vehicle traffic was alright with the snow, gonna be rough after this snow storm.
