Lake Help...

3 posts in this topic

Alright I need some help making a decision - I have been fishing the SW metro area for about 4 years and have quite a few "spots" - BUT I need to decide on a good lake to take my old man he's coming up from Las Vegas the end of this week and hasen't been fishing for a while so I want to give him a good trip! We are looking to get some bass and pike... any suggestion would be great!!!

Crystal in Burnsville has a lot of pike (mostly small), and some nice bass in all the usual places. Marion has some big bass and nice pike, probably lower numbers than Crystal, but generally larger. Prior lake has an abundance of bass, fewer pike on the main lake, but plenty to find in the weedy bays (look on the NW side of UPPER Prior (the southern body).

All in all, I'd suggest Prior. It's a big lake with lots of variety...you can find shallow, deep, clear, weedy, sandy, rocky...good access on the NW corner of the lake with ample parking--particlarly for a weekday outing or early weekend morning.

I hope you guys have a great time!

Jay

I would suggest Whaletail, sw metro, especially if you are looking for more of a secluded lake, few people, few houses, very peacefull. You can email me for more info if you are going to head that way.

      Sounds pretty slow, I was up and out of Zipple Bay on Monday and Tuesday in about 26 ft. of water and did OK. Good mix of nice sauger and walleye. I think they closed the road to trucks and just letting atvs out now. Good luck on the river.

      We got ours from springsteel, they had some at the bait store in warroad. Couldn't find ciscos, warroad had smelt though.

      Arrived at Morris pt. Fri. afternoon fished a spot I did well on earlier in the year in 18 ft. Ended up catching 10 walleye of which 8 were under 12 inches. The 2 keepers were 16 inches each. That was between 4 pm and 7 pm Used the snowmobile there was enough slush to keep the slides cool. Sat. morning went deeper because of a report I heard. Caught 1 small walleye moved several times between 29 ft and 20 ft. At 1 pm went back to my spot in 18 ft banged 3 more walleyes 2 15 inchers and a 12 incher. then nothing .Off the lake by 2pm had work to do. Wished I would of started there but that's fishing.Talked to 3 guy's in the cleaning house that road there wheelers to Bridges they had there limits plus 3 huge perch and a few tullies. On a side note coming home today saw numerous boats both coming and going. Time to jump on board and hit the river..
