HaHa, just drove past it about 2 hours ago on the way back home from the Boundary Waters. Others in my group weren't much for seeing what is was about so i didn't get too check it out. Is it like a store/gift shop? or more like a information center?

I heard its $8 admission and its so so.Guess they have the usual donated inventory to sell..

Theres a meeting the 14th 7.30 pm I think its at the eagles nest. Heard its about the locals opinion of the center and the leagle issues. I think it will be worth the drive up to see the center and then go to the meeting...

      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.
