Any reports on Fish Lake?

5 posts in this topic

Any reports of action on Fish Lake? Heard they are catching some walters with slip-bobbers in 8-14 feet of water.

Haven't caught them on slip bobbers, but I guess we haven't tried for them that way. We've had good luck trolling in 10-12 fow with crawler harnesses.

I would also troll with crawlers. It's a great way to cover water and some nice sized panfish can be caught that way. About this time of year or so they head out to the flats and we have caught nice numbers of bluegills and walleyes, all eaters. In fact, I have caught some of the biggest bluegills in my life on Fish trolling with crawlers. 8-12 feet should cover it. Gonna head up there on Monday. Don't get your stuff too close to the bottom as Fish lake eats tackle

I did real well with the eyes 2 weeks ago... They were biting then so I assume they must really be biting now as well.

Last time out the eyes were scattered, anywhere from a couple FOW to deep. Trolling crawlers or leeches would be my advice. If you find any concentration then slip bob them come evening.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.
