Lake Phalen, south east shore. Because that side has the most vegitation, and that side is mostly fenced off. I took a canoe out on that lake looking for large mouths and noticed that the south east shore where it's mostly fenced off has tons of sunnies and a lot of them are pretty big. But you just gotta respect the fence.

I would have to say Josephine in Roseville. The microscopic size of the sunnies in that lake never ceases to amaze me. A close runner up would have to be Snail lake a few miles away. I ice fished there a few times last winter...I would mark a 10 foot high band of red on the Vex and catch 50 cent piece size sunnies one after another. Whats up with these NE metro lakes?

I iced fished the little pond rightside of of East highway 36, close to Fleet Farm, across the highway from Silver lake I think, this winter and man that little pond was deep with little sunnies, perches, and crappies. My Marcum was lit up bottom to almost the top. At first I used bigger jigs and got bites like crazy, but never could get them. Then I tried micro jigs and I caught little ones all day long. I even found a little hole in that pond that went to 18 ft.

I took my kids fishing at Loch Ness park in Blaine a few weeks ago. I was impressed by how small the sunfish were. It was hard to find hooks small enough to catch them, but we did and the kids were happy.

Also lots of small sunfish in Sucker Creek by 96 and Rice St.

Lake Phalen, yeah, you can get a boat in there, but you can only use an electric motor. No gas motors allowed. I talked to a park ranger and he said the fence is there to protect the wild plant that was planted there a few years ago. A decade ago, the fence was not there. I would recommend a canoe for this lake. There's a boat launch on north-west end of the lake. The boat rental is on the west side of the lake.

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.

      Why so many batteries???  lol   I use with weed wacker and leaf blower.  pine needle blower mainly  soooo much nicer than sweeping;
    • eyeguy 54
      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol

      Why don't you take the free Dewalt I offered you....no more worries about not enough power...lol :-)
