If you like panfish you could head up HWY 65 to Ham Lake, they have a dock at the boat launch would take you less than 10 minutes to get there. Other than that you have Centerville and Peltier which is east on 242 about a 15 minute drive. Its going to be nuts around the Sportcenter, I work right behind it and this tournement brings in HUGE crowds.

Thanks for the suggestions. I was thinking about trying the river, but maybe I'll try the Ham Lake area also. It sucks because I'm going to be so limited on time.

If you are shore fishing try the bridges in the lakes development on Radisson rd north of where you are. The crappies sunnys and bass are always biting. Not big but fun

You would probably be better off at the Coon Rapids dam area than Ham Lake. Bottom rig a crawler for some good rough fish action! At Ham Lake, yes the fishing pier is nice, and there is a chance at bass or northern there from the pier, but it's mostly 4-5" sunnies. Plus, the pier is always packed at Ham Lake (the 2 times I've been there this year), lots of room to spread out at the CR Dam. There is a $5 fee to get into the park at the dam.

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Briggs is open as far as I could see.I will be out that way again tomorrow I'll get another glance and see if I spot some on a different side of the lake

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
