Muskies???

Couple buddies and I have a trip planned for the weekend at the Red Door. I was wondering if anyone's had any action on the north end or are we going to have look elsewhere? We were up before in mid-August right after the big tourney and managed only one fish(48.5) out of 5 boats thanks to a wonderful cold front and dropping water temps. Hoping for a more productive trip so any information at all would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

The North End has been a bit slow lately from what I've been hearing, although Garrison and the Myr Mar areas have been producing some really nice fish, including a 55.Weeds and rocks have been key for my boat.Big rubber and big blades, and yes, the fish are still eating after dark.Good luck and be safe.

Fished Malmo area and 3 mile reef, and only seen a few fish. Fished last night till midnight, and this morning in the rain before the storm hit hoping for action and only a couple follows and a few fish porposing. Kinda strange to see. The cold front may have had a bit to do with the slow bite being it was almost 70 yesterday and when I left the lake at 11am today it was still only 45! Chilly morning.

      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
