    Lake Sac this weekend


    I’m looking to head out with some buddies this weekend to Lake Sac. We’re going after walleyes and perch. Any suggestions for where to go? Anyone having luck? I’m pretty new to ice fishing, so whatever help that I can get would be much appreciated! Thanks

    True freedom is not the ability to do whatever one wants or as one pleases without restraint, rather, true freedom is the ability to what one ought to do.

    I really need to get up there on the ice for a weekend this year. I fish all summer from Indian Hills to Skunk but have never ice fished anything but the east end and that has usually been for spring pike. I just never hear anything that great east, but i'm sure there are guys that catch them.

    Living in Bismarck its just easier to go to Oahe than try and figure out east Sak in the winter.

    i wouldn't waste your time on the east end this weekend. Its been very similar to last year, pretty darn terrible. Unless you know a guy who has figured out the bite otherwise go to the west end of the lake or Audubon.

    I second the New town to Williston. Bite has slowed a bit but White earth Bay is a solid place to start.

    Don't want to scare people but unless you are going with people that have experience or you know where to go on Sak I suggest you be extremely careful. Saks ice conditions change through out the winter. A place that had 15 inches one day can be 5 inches the next. I have seen it. Pressure ridges form and disappear. Even on 4 wheelers be careful. A couple years ago a guy fell through with a 4 wheeler and died. Sak is another animal compared to DL and smaller lakes.

    Sakakawea ice kind of freaks me out. Don't forget about the methane pockets!

    I have not had time to go, all the kids hockey games are home so maybe Sunday. Have heard decent reports from most areas on the west end.

    East end has been very slow. Too much bait fish lighting up your graph all day and night. It sounds like the upper west side is the place to be.
