weather pays my bills and is a hobby. Accuweather as with almost all long range forecasts base their forecasts off a model called the GFS. It's funded by our taxes. It has serious faults, especially in the long range, but this time it does see what met's see outside of the modles. I doubt it will be as cold as you have posted, but highs in the low 30's and low's in the lower teens would not be uncommon. IF any snow does fall and stick-- knock a few degress off those temps. Nov does look to be a cold month, agst the normals.

Sheesh! I'm as excited for ice fishing as the next guy, but I sure could enjoy some more of this nice fall weather we have been having the past week! Man, we have had so many cloudy days and rain since September 1st that I thought we would never see the sun! Seems like fall just got here! My boat still has a full tank of gas and I still have minnows on hand that are just begging to be dangled in front of a Walleye's nose next week!

      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.
