West Leaf Lake

5 posts in this topic

I will be heading to West Leaf Lake in a few days and was wondering if anything was biting on West or any of the surrounding lakes?

was on rush this weekend for a sportsmans challenge. Lots of bass and northerns. Caught the biggest bass of the day, a healthy 19 incher in 5 FOW on a spinnerbait. Lots of decent bass, biggest northern went 27 or 28 inches, all fish on spinners or pulling cranks up to 15 FOW. piles of crappies were caught on the south end of the lake, straight out from the launch at oak point in front of the reeds. good luck.

ps, east leaf i believe is something only a top water can get through, from what i have been told

      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.
