Bass: Twin/Sylvia, Cedar, Clearwater, Buffalo?, Pulaski has numbers, size ??, smaller lakes you just need to find out.

Walleye: I've had luck on Pulaski, Buffalo, Clearwater. Cedar has them, you just need to find em. Twin/Sylvia has then, they are just deep and hard to find. Check out the lakes the DNR has stocked and give them a try.

Panfish: You just have to find lakes that hold nice ones. All lakes have them but finding the bigger ones is the key.

Clearwater is good for anything, Just make sure you have a good lake map, Lots of shallow spots out there. Good walleye lakes around Annandale would be. Cedar, Slyvia, Pleasant, French, and Granite. You will find Bass on them to. Slyvia if you can find the crappies you will get some nice ones. I got alot of 10"-11" crappies earlier this year on Pleasant(Well the Kids did- I was the Official taker offer and bait my hook guy.)

I'm going out to Cedar this afternoon and evening to try for walleyes I'll let you know how I did.

Lindy rigging, with a 4' snell and Fatheads. Found the fish in 22-27 FOW. I did catch a few decent sunnies. If I knew I was going to catch as many as I did, i would have kept them. Good Luck, let me know how you did, I won't have a chance to get out there this weekend, because I have to work. But I will be out there Tuesday Night.

Side Note: I would check H&H for fatheads. See if they have some bigger ones, Little Jims had crappie minnow size fatheads.

My inlaws have a place on Cedar. Far south end of lake, round house, last place in channel. I fish the lake often and am intreged by the structure and not so much by the recreational pressure. I've had a few real good days for Bass and Pike (not size wise but numbers) Never had alot of success fishing Eyes. When I'm out there I'm in a 14ft blue Alumacraft with a quick 8 horse. grin.gif I'd be up for any help that can be offered on this lake. I'm a married highschool Bio teacher with three young kids (5,3,2) and time out fishing is like gold... Send an e-mail with any helpful suggestions and I can give back info on my successful experiances and spots. smirk.gif

Central public high school. Norwood Young America. I teach Biology to sophamores and Human Anatomy & Physiolgy to Juniors and Seniors.

League Championship is this Sat am. It will be a draw out of a hat and is between Waconia, Waverly, Ann, and Howard. Those were the top four lakes on average from our entire list of 14 lakes. I personally won on Waconia with three bass weighing in at 11 lbs 14 oz. So I'm partial to Wac. Fingers crossed. smirk.gif

What the? Bass-n-spear? I don't think there was anything wrong with my last post at all. I talked about how Einstein and Newton, (both great Minds) were not good spellers and how some people think differently, and how spelling was a poor way to judge intellegence. ANYWAY, Like I said before... Robo, back to Cedar, I fish it often and would like to become more efficient. For the most part I target Bass then Walleyes. I have had success when targeting pike but the size was lacking. Shoot me an e-mail if you think you could help. I'll respond with some of my spots where I've had success if you'd like. I've never been edited before in over 450 posts and I'm quite sure there was no profanity or advertisments..... ? confused.gif

      We've done well in late June.   May need to move offshore more.  Cranks or spinners till you find fish then slow down if needed.   I use the public access.  Not usually too busy mid summer.

    • Walleye #1
        With the big winds this week we were not able to venture out as far, so not a whole lot to report from the Main Lake.  When it isn’t blowing too hard, the main lake rock reefs were kicking out nice Leech Lake walleyes in 14-18 feet of water.  Pulling lindy rigs with crawlers or leeches as well as slow death at .5-.8 mph was the best.  Speed is the key when dialing in these fish.  Our Leech Lake fishing guides found a nice mix of eaters and bigger fish.   Still many of the same places as last week were producing in North Bar, Fletchers, Ivans, Submarine, etc, but don’t forget to look for secondary reefs and humps that are nearby or if the fish are not on the edges of those reefs look to the mud basins where the bug hatches are taking place and drive until you graph fish.   On the west end of the lake in Walker Bay and Agency Bays, shoreline breaks that had wind blowing in were the best.  14-20ft of water is where we keyed in on.  Pulling lindy rigs with chubs, leeches, or crawlers all worked to put a nice mix of walleyes and even some nice pike in the boat.  Other areas to key in on would be under water points and bars that run out into the bays and have deep water right next to them the bigger fish like to suspend and then come in and feed during these times.  
    • Walleye #1
      Always worth it to go fishing.  That time of year your best bet from what your schedule sounds like would be to put crank baits on and trolling the edges and tops of the reefs or do some slip bobber fishing down on that end of the lake.  Huddles Reef, Variety, Olsons, etc. would all be places to start, but the crankbait bite can be good.

      Big Hatches usually get the slow bite over in a hurry! Hopefully this will only last a few more days! Boated 22 walleyes today but only managed to keep 7 small eaters in 6 hours of fishing. Cliff

      They used to have a nice gun range but some stupid locals shot their garage and blamed the range!
    • gunner55
      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share 
    • Wheres_Walter
      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks
