I think the duck opener should be good. there are quite a few ducks around. My younger brothers went out for the youth hunt and saw alot of ducks but they only shot holes in the sky!

I think the shallow bite for walleyes will be taking off on area lakes if it hasn't already. Start casting shorelines with raps or a jig and twister and you should find some eyes. Those spots on the des moines river that are accessible should be good too like 123fish stated.

If you are going to hunt the area I think you are there were by far the most ducks and quite a few honkers at that location compared to any place else in that general vicinity other than possibly the big area a few miles north of there that I didn't look at last Saturday.

Thanks for the info. I got a phone call today and a report of the usual spot full of mallards and woodies. I cant wait for saturday morning to get here. I'll be getting the boat out tomorrow night and convert it back into duck mode. I don't bother hunting those other more northerly spots until a few weeks into the season when the crowd tends to thin out a little.

      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.
