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!

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
