Is 3 mile reef out from hunters point producing?

It’s always producing!

You just got to get their and fish in and out of the buoy markers.

If I remember correct, there is a pretty stout drop off on the north end of markers. Anchor and slip bobber with leech or minnow right on break and you will get walleyes. It is always nice to mark fish before you set up.

Pulling cranks at the depths of marked fish works well also.

I have always seemed to have more luck on North end and little to the east. Who knows though!

Is this the spot by Garrison? I'm not that familiar with the names of all the locations. I know there is a reef just north of "3 Mile" but the nearest point seems to be Pike Point.

Husker, Three mile reef is on the southeast part of the lake north of Isle.

I would say it is a little to the east and in the middle of the lake. If you have a map, find big point (Big point is on the east side about half ways up). After you locate big point, put your finger on it and slowly go west out into lake. If I remember right, you might have to go up just slightly. It is not all the way to the center of the lake, about half way to the center.

minnesotatuff,

Thanks!

I never have fished in winter! My winter fishing is in the area of Doe island reef down to Isle bay and over to cove bay!

Do not rule out drifting! Keep rod tips up (so you do not get snagged in rocks) and use 2-4’ snell with red or yellow hook. I would use .5 to 1.0 once weight. Leech or crawler works best. What ever way wind is blowing (if there is wind) and set up and position your self so you will glance off to one side or another of 3 mile reef markers. This has been lucky for me also.

      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.
