I'll be fishing the September 8th one. It's my first time fishing Long lake so I am going blind. Is there a lot of vegitation on that lake? Reeds, coon tail, milfoil? We are driving a ways to come and fish it so it would be nice to know what to expect. confused.gif Thanks

How did it go out on Fish Hook today? Any update as to numbers (fisherman/fish caught/etc)? Will be up for a few days next week and appreciate the information. Thanks.

Thanks for asking about the tourney. We had 28 boats entered. The winning team, repeat champ from last year, had 33.46 lbs. The fish weren't as cooperative this year. There were 23 walleyes caught, 61 Northerns, and 87 Bass. The largest walleye was 7.40 lbs, while the largest northern was 11.06 lbs, and the biggest bass was 4.25 lbs. It was a great day on the water.

      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.

      I scored an ice armor extreme black and orange jacket for $140, lots of new jigs with free shirts and hats as incentives. Crowds were insane, easily the largest I have seen in many years of attendance. Had a great time though. Ice is inevitable, but my patience is not my strongest virtue
