Faribault Panfish?

5 posts in this topic

I'm going to bring my son to Faribault fishing on the 4th and was wondering about a couple of good lakes we could find some sunnies and crappies to keep him occupied.

Any info would be appreciated!

Thanks.

Try Shields, I have always had good luck there. Do you have a boat?

Thanks again.

Kelly/Dudley - Cant keep the sunnies off. Its great to keep the kids busy. I usually don't fish if my kids are with because I'm too bust taking fish off and baiting hooks. Also some large pike and bass..in the right spots.

Thanks alot for the info.! Are there any suggestions on what part of the lake to try for the sunnies, are they biting on worms or waxies and how deep.

I know its alot of info to ask but it would save me some time.

      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.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
