Yeah, It isn't looking pretty. It started coming down pretty hard here at about 8:00. On the radio they said accumulations could be up to 10-14 inches. Bad timing I guess, but when do we ever get a perfect winter. Hopefully it will stay cold for a while after the snow.

On the flip side, I'm happy for the early snow fall to create a nice base. Need some insulation so my septic doesn't freeze up again. It's not all bad!

Well I think ideally they would have a base of hard pack and 8-10 fresh on top of that. However, with our winters the last few seasons...this is gotta be ideal! smile.gif

Anyone know how much ice was on NLL 371 bay before the snow hit?

      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.
