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 for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
