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.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
