Putting on the feedbag!

5 posts in this topic

Fish are really starting to put on their feedbags as the fishery heads into arguably the best "BIG FISH" period of the year. Don't be afraid to fish larger baits this time of year as bigger fish will be looking to put some weight on for the upcoming winter. FYI you don't have to head to the east end for big walleyeys! Shhh! Greatest time of year right here boys! One stop had some beautiful rainbows on hand yesterday! I traded several in for several slot fish yesterday. I swear some of those Rainbows had fear in there eyes as they were lowered to the marble eyed lurkers. Send your kids off to school and load up the boat this is big fish time! Good Fishing!

Thats Awesome!

I bet he was fired up! I've been on the water the past several days, and need to get a few things shored up here around the house. I guided over the weekend, and can't wait to get out again asap! Yep that is truly a great area. Don't think for a second that I haven't been pinpointing a few locations for the permanent come this winter either! Congrats Buddy! That is a fish to be proud of, and you know how tough a true 10lb fish can be to come by. How many inches?

      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.
