Lake Savant - anyone else going?

3 posts in this topic

Three weeks from today, the caravan departs for my group's annual pilgrimage to Cat Track Lodge on Lake Savant. Just wondering if anyone else has plans to visit Savant this summer - always fun to compare notes, pictures, patterns etc. Last year was a banner year for walleyes, though the pike fishing was a little slow. Looking forward to more of the same from my favorite lake in the world!

Went to Cliff and Roma's second week of September.  Windy windy windy.... Almost all fish were in 35 to 40 feet of water up by 3 Sisters.  Bear Trap, Never Freeze and Narrows big thumbs down.  Spent most of the time trying to control boat and not drown.  Kind of dangerous backtrolling in 3 feet of waves. Guy up front of boat did well.

I've never fished up there in September. Is Never Freeze usually good that time of year? I wouldn't think fish would be in that area in the fall. Glad you stayed safe; Savant can get angry when the wind is up. 

Seeing this reminds me I never posted a report! Our trip the last week of June was incredible. No giant pike, but more 32-36" gators than I have ever caught. Walleye fishing was awesome for both numbers and size. Some of the usual spots for that time of year were completely empty...we think it is because weed growth was WAY behind, but we're not sure. We had to hunt a little more to find them this year, but when we found em, we found em good. One island we had never fished before was a honey hole for 22-27" walleyes, and some really nice pike as well.

Can't wait til next year!

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
