NE metro lakes......where a guy can catch fish?!?

4 posts in this topic

I usually come down there and fish White Bear or Bald eagle once a year with very hit and miss luck......95% miss. What other lakes can you get some good action and a regular basis for the most part?

Depends on what your after. If your looking for pike under tip ups then big marine would be a good spot, some nice bluegills in there too. Chisago/S. Lindstrom is good for crappies, and can also get good pike action.

Green lake in Chisago for the full meal deal. Lots of pannies, bass, pike, walleyes and pretty easy to find the fish. Drill a hole if you don't get bit within 2 minutes move. The community spots are all decent but there is fish away from the crowds as well.

gervais as soon as you can get out. you should be able to look at the lake map and figure it out. otherwise pay attention to where other guys are fishing. you would be surprised how good it can be there early in the year.

      I catch saugers in rivers or in lakes with large river tributaries - they seem to be more of a river fish. Given there aren't big feeder rivers into V, i'm not surprised by lack of saugers. I've never caught one in V, nor have i heard of anyone.

      From the MN DNR-   The walleye is native to most of Minnesota, flourishing in large, shallow, windswept lakes with gravel shoals, such as Mille Lacs, Leech, Winnibigoshish, Upper and Lower Red Lake, Lake of the Woods and Lake Vermilion. It is also native to many smaller lakes and steams in all of Minnesota's major drainages. Because of its popularity as a game and food fish, the walleye was introduced to many other lakes, where it has become established. The walleye now occupies about 1,700 lakes totaling 2 million acres and 100 warm-water streams totaling 3,000 miles.

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff
