Pitching Phelp's Half Faced jigs tipped with shiners or fatheads has always been my #1 choice for fishing cabbage.

Bottom bouncers and spinners with crawlers going at a decent clip works well too. Just try to keep the bouncer at a 45 degree angle to the boat.

I have been looking for those Phlep's Half face Jigs and can't find them. Where do they sell them? What size is the best?

Oh those Weed Walleyes! Love em'! I cast Half Face Jigs or Weedless Phelps Floaters in there and pull them out quite often.

Glassguy, if you want to give me a call with your address I can send you a catalog. Thanks for the interest.

I have had best luck trolling shad raps. It can get to be a hassel, but man is it fun. We caught 6 last weekend.

I forgot to mention... pulling shad raps seems like the last the last way to fish in the weeds... we ran them ABOVE the weeds and the fish would come up to get them.

While I was prefishing for the tourney last week I found an interesting pattern. I trolled a beatle spin with an white twister tail at 2.8 to 3 mph in 4 feet of water. It produced some very nice fish. Give it a try.

      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.
