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?

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
