CK -

I believe I asked this before, but how is the water level on Gun? Still pretty low? Weedlines setting up yet?

Just the kind of info I'm lookin' for - are you still finding those crappies on Gun? I suppose the water has warmed up quite a bit by now...in days past, we'd run into a school now and again while trolling for walleyes. Then that cabbage started producing a few as well.

And I forgot to mention the big sunnies we'd catch trolling for walleyes. Wife pulled one in that was a smidge under 11" - I could barely(!) get my hand around it. We both thought she had a decent 'eye on right up until we netted it!

Fun, fun, fun.

even if I knew I could not say.

I've been asked not to mention lakes anymore.

You'll have to privately email me.

palisade1kid@yahoo.com

I was giving almost daily reports.that had to stop.

Now no matter the lake I'll post in Lard lake thread. Feel free to get up with me to see what's what on the water these days.

It sure would be nice to be open about what's going on.

It seems almost worthless making posts nowadays.

Since I'm not seeing responces or questions I'm thinking about using this forum as it was designed which is to give different lake info as it happens regaurdless of the attacks by the few unhappy lake residents.

sorry to be so negative as you are new here,but if you read some of my post in these threads of our area you'll see what I'm talking about.

I'm hoping to make you feel at home and whatever I can do for you ,just name it.

CK in Palisade

      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.
