......hard work for a good bite....

6 posts in this topic

....seems the fish are biting....finding where can be the hard part. Jigs tipped with minnow working well for perch....chunks of crawlers on a plain hook settled to the bottom or dangled under a slip bobber also doing the trick.

...I do believe the size quality of the perch getting much better on the river....our best luck came in about 8 fow on sand beds with weeds near by....but one needs to move about, find some active fish, wait for the lull and move on....

I worked the river for a couple hours on yesterday morning. I was casting cranks to shorelines looking for some giant 'eyes but only came up with a handful of small walleyes. However, I did manage to get into some fiesty smallies. Then the rain really set in and I opted for my warm dry house!

How are things looking up by the Red Wing dam? I was thinking about giving it a try Friday. I tried this spot a few weeks ago and only managed a few fish. Seemed like it was quite "time" yet. What do guys think?

I was in to see Dean and pick up a new rod last night. We chatted walleyes for awhile and you are right. A few are being caught but its not quite "time" yet.

      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.
