I dont know anything about the st.croix, but I am done fishing millacs for the season as the bit has pretty much totally died off. Besides if you do catch any you wont be able to keep them with the new slot

Question is what do you want to catch?

If it is a bigger walleyes, Muskie’s or Smallmouth hit mille lacs up. The smallie bite I guess has been pretty good on the south end gravel, and Muskie’s have been producing as of late as well. Walleyes might be a little harder to come by but from the sounds of some of the reading on here, you can still catch them.

The croix water levels are down, but don't let that discourage you from going there. Upstream of Stillwater I wouldn't even bother with because the levels of water. But I still here people catching walleyes down there and also Cats and Smallmouth. Oh and if you just want to go catch a bunch of fish that fight.... Sheep head by the numbers are down on the croix lol.

GOOD LUCK!

      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.

      I scored an ice armor extreme black and orange jacket for $140, lots of new jigs with free shirts and hats as incentives. Crowds were insane, easily the largest I have seen in many years of attendance. Had a great time though. Ice is inevitable, but my patience is not my strongest virtue
