What kind of fish does that lake produce? I heard it was decent for northerns, but are there any pannies or walleyes worth going after?

I fished the lake a few times this summer and I mostly caught sunnies and bass. The sunnies are mostly smaller but I have gotten some real nice ones out of there. The bass is what I mainly go there for. I have also been wondering how the ice is because I am hoping on heading out there soon.

Not much of a walleye lake. Decent panfish with lots of sorting. On tip ups you'll catch a mixed bag of bass and pike with both running pretty decent. When I first fished this lake I'd take my kids there and we set up on the the break fishing panfish with tip ups up shallow. Lots of action!

Still a good action lake.

I checked Beaver today, about 3 inches of clear ice and 3-4 inches of bad ice(slush frozen). There was somebody with a 4 wheeler out there. Crazy if you ask me.

There is slush on almost all of the lakes in various spots. You just cant get away from that when the snow to ice ratio is what it is. might be froze up this weekend though. The temps sure dropped last night.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.
