Sanford Lake Info??
« on: August 17, 2017, 04:25:59 PM »

Our classic will be on Sanford and Wixom in late September.  Never been on Sanford.  Heard stories of big stumps and rocks on the north end.   Anyone fish it regularly.

once you get past mid lake headed north. That channel gets real skinny. Big flats with stumps all over. Fished it once in a BASS team circuit. Vowed Id never go back. They did put some good weights in the boat. 21 pounds or so.   I prefer secord  myself.

I haven't fished it in years but it is basically a lowland reservoir so you would fish it as that. I remember fishing some trees, logs and stumps though where there were green weeds there was also bass. Unfortunately my fishing was mostly in the lower end. Late summer and fall I've always preferred running upstream a ways. Never got the chance there. Definitely learn the channel and stay in it. Some wood right on the edge.

There used to be a member I fished with in a DK that lived up there.  We were supposed to have an NBAA event there a long time ago.   I had notes somewhere about the lake but can't find them.   Probably idle a lot the first trip up there.   Maybe I will actually use my side scan for something other that looking for junk on the bottom of my lake.

If you don't use it you might lose it!
