Start on the outside weedline. 16-20 feet deep. As for bays... I've caught walleyes in Grays, Wayzata, Excelsior, Robinson, Carsons, Gideons, Browns, and Smiths Bay on the east side. I spend much less time on the west end but have had success in Halsteads, Smithtown, and Cooks as well. The general spots are not a secret. Points, reefs, islands, etc. It's the spot on the spot that you need to find in order to catch fish. This just takes time, and your GPS should help shorten the search.

Hey Mike, the wife and I are in the process of buying a house by Lake Susan in Chan. So it looks as though I'm going to be back down in the S.W. metro. Do you still live in Eden Prairie?

      I'm hoping the snow they are forecasting shows up. Because then it's on for sure.    Put new glass on the light weight .223 so I don't have to carry the heavy target weight gun around. Just not practical where I hunt to have a 300yard gun. A 150yard gun will do just fine.    When you cary a shotgun and a rifle on almost every stand a few extra pounds can add up in a hurry.    Good luck tonight moose

      Twin is pretty deep. One of the last to freeze over in most years.    I wasnt home yesterday evening to see if any more kids went through the ice.    I will did the spud out and see how thick  it is by shore tomorrow.

      We wait until the snowmobile club stakes the trail before going through the narrows.
