Does anybody ever fish walleyes on pleasant? My in laws have a cabin there and I have had some trouble finding them.

Oh there in there, but with the large population of pan fish and bass live bait seldom works as it gets ate up before the eye's ever see it. My best results normally are with lip less cranks, right at and out from the weed line. Perch, emerald/blue, and the black/gray/silver have worked the best depending on the day. I have also had some results on a jig with a plastic shad on it.

Hope this helps you out.

If we are talking the same Pleasant and I think we are... the one just southwest of the corner of Ottertail 1 and 35. I have had a lake place on Little Pleasant for over 30 years and do not recall the lakes ever being closed for fishing. I know they stocked the big lake with walleye in err think it was 2003 with some yearling's. And Anna across the road on 35 they stock with fingerling's about ever couple of years. With the high water they have all stayed connected with unnavigable channels the past few years. Big Pleasant connects up with Fish Lake which is how we ended up with so many carp in recent years. Oh well they are fun to catch also.

I fish mostly pan fish and bass, now and then stumble in to some eyes.

Pleasant Lake north of St Paul is closed to fishing.

We are talking the same lake I think right across from Anna.I have never cought any thing on Anna. I gave up fishing on it. But am taking the girlfriend up fishing this week end and looking for some panfish. But anyway I swore the had that lake closed a couple of years back mybe It had to do with the boat access. Is there a good landing.

Minnesota DNR concrete public access is located off of the township road along the north shoreline, I have not been over there this year but I see rigs sitting there so they must be getting in and out without any trouble. I been fishing on Ottertail when we have been to something other then right out the front door. Usually you can limit out on sun fish 6-8 inches in no time and have a blast doing it. I know I see several fishing crappie and sunnies right off the shoulder on the north side of the road regularly.

Neighbor usually goes over to Dead and gets a nice mess of bluegill on most trips.

Have a good weekend Brett.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man met me on the lake today and I showed him I am a skilled angler! lol we had a great fish fry! My old man only added one crappie and 5 gills to the bunch

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
