I have not been out in the st. cloud area for awhile. Just wondering if there are any recomondations for a morning or day time walleye bite. Any recomondations would be appreciated.

The chain has been kicking out fish during the day. Some very nice ones as well.

I'd give the river a try, this time of year has always been the best for me out there. Find the holes between the Rice bridge and the old Pirate's Cove.

Definately give the chain a shot!

Thanks guys, both options sound pretty. I would assume that during the day live bait is probably the way to go?

St. Cloud Walleye: Where is the Old Pirates Cove? Never heard of that one before? Years ago I used to go to SCSU and used to fish the river a lot but I have since moved to the cities and don't get up there much anymore. I am seriously thinking of going back in a few weeks though.

The Pirates cove used to be a few miles north of Sartell on the east side of the river.

It's just south of Gordens bridge. I belive it's going to be a housing development now.... My normal spots on the river were difficult to fish a week a go that current is nasty. Haven't been able to make it out latley gearing up for rifle season and trying to seal the deal with bow yet. I have to wait another 2 weeks to hit the river again. Good luck grin.gif

      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
