Leeches and crawlers, for bait. Then find deeper water, 30 to 40ft, use a lindy rig and go slow.

Later evening troll circles with crankbaits in 5 to 7 feet around perimmitter bars and flats.

After dark fish chubs in and out from 18 feet deep [out] to 5 feet in slow verticle jig in and out from bars and flats.

Most of action is on Park 5 end of lake but if you feel like crossing lake in dark try around swimming beach area bobbers and live baits.Stay from mid beach to past ramps in 9 to 15 feet water anchored when they show,quite and patient.

Last 2 places show some fish,small on flats and bars,but some nice ones near baech.

Plan on keeping fish you catch because with 83 degrre evening temps[water]the ones you put back will more than likely not survive.

If you do go deeper plan on keeping all fish as these simply will not survive reentry.

Ask right at park ,they will have all the latest that simply doesnt make it to town .

Good luck

rippin lips, the water temp is 77-78 unless you are in the big shallows. i have had no problem releasing fish. use small live bait rigs, not chubs unless they are redtails. fish 25' and deeper for s.m. and walleye action. stay away from the small humps right now because the majority of the fish are hanging around the larger structure or 1 trench away. if you have to fish shallow, pull raps in 10-12'

rippin, one more thing. i wouldn't waste my time bobbering up right now either, most of the fish are spread out so keep moving but go slow.

I got out on the water for a while sunday morning. Managed to catch a few smallies, rock bass, sunnies, and one 19 inch walleye all went back in the water.

      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
