I am planning on getting out this evening to do some fishing finally. I want to try a new lake today, and I am looking for suggestions. I want to head west and drive an hour or less. I live near wayzata/orono so I can get almost get to litchfield in an hour, so something within that range. I dont know too many of the lakes that way that is why I am looking for suggestions. C&R only, I dont really like to eat fish, or clean them. I am looking for a smaller lake with few people, thats why I am heading west. Looking for a good bass lake, and pike or muskie would be good too. Not numbers, I need a lake that has size potential, fishing for the sport.

I know there are a few close that match that description, but I am looking for something new and a little further away. Just me and my woman, so we wont over-fish the lake or bring a bunch of pressure to it if you share a small lake, you can email me if you dont want to post good small lakes on here. Not looking for spots really, just a couple ideas for lakes. If anyone can give some ideas by around 3-4 this afternoon, that would be great!

Thanks!

      Thanks Cliff. It looks like I'll bring tall boots, ice crampons, and snowshoes for my walk across the lake on Friday! Who knows what I'll encounter

      I fished north of Two Harbors on Sunday and it was a mess.  The plowed areas had a good 4-5" of standing water, the rest was slop and slush about 1/2 way up to my knee. There was plenty of ice, and there were 4-5 pickups out there, but I scouted it out with the ATV and elected to walk to my spot rather than risk getting stuck in the muck.  This was of course before the rain Monday, so I can only imagine what it's like now.

      Del,   You know what they say about opinions and a certain part of the anatomy don't you. That said, you've made your point but it's now time that you step out for some fresh air and give this rant of yours a break.     Good luck to the Landing's new owners. Restaurants are a tough gig anywhere and I sincerely wish you the best and hope you'll succeed.   John

      Although down riggers aren't required, they sure are nice.  I'very really become a fan of copper lately.  The newer stuff is easier to work with and has caught more fish for me over lead core over on Lake Michigan.      I agree that unless you're using the suffix lead core the 47s don't leave a lot if room for backing.  Definitely use braid for backing.  I like to splice 20 ft of 30 lb mono between the core and backing to clip boards to.   I do the drag upgrades too.  When you get the diameter down the drags aren't as forgiving.
