Long Lake has Walleyes. The New Brighton Sportsmans CLub regualary stocks Long Lake every few years. Watch the ice th9ugh. Long Lake is notorius for haing bad ice due to the springs that are in it. During the summer months and into fall they bring Eyes in off the fishing pier on the South side of the Lake near the boat landing.

You might also try Centerville Lake at Centerville. Take 35 W north to the highway 49 exit. Take 49 north to highway 242 and take a right. follow 242 over the freeway (35W0 and enter Centerville Lake from the Anoka County Park that is there.

Another spot you might try is the Coon Rapids Dam. Use your long rod and fish right below the dam. Cast a jig and minnow or jig and plastic. It is a great Walleye, Smallmouth spot this time of year.

I know the DNR stocks Long Lake with walleye fry every year, but the guys I know that work there have no record of any other stocking going on. If someone is, they need a permit to do it.

Seeing the size of Centerville lake, is that Anoka Park access a place where you can drag a shak out from? If not is there some nice drag out spots on Peltier? Thanks

You won't be able to take the 242 route - 242/14/Main Street (it goes by many names) is under construction - so you will have to access these lakes from the east.

Access Peltier from Mill Road. You can access Centerville from the park - but it is a long haul to where most people fish.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW

      I am planning on kayaking and fishing the Cannon River this season--between Cannon Falls and Hwy 61. I just want to know if the current is generally swift or lazy, i.e., can I paddle BACK to my entrance spot or do you  need to drift downstream and do the two vehicle thing. I understand it may depend on how low or high the river is at any given time, but in general, when things are 'normal', can you paddle back with little difficulty?

      I'll keep it short and simple. The causes of boom and bust on Mille Lacs.    1. Improperly managed slot limits. Too many large fish are allowed in the lake.  2. Netting during spawn. Poor spawning success.    The recent years of high catch rates rates indicate a good 2013 year class but most importantly it is a red flashing light for anyone paying attention. High catch rates are a result of good population AND low or decreasing forage. I put AND in caps because fish won't bite like they have  when they're not hungry.    Cut down that year class class before it's too late. I give it 2 more summers before another crash is inevitable.    Round and round we go, where it stops, nobody knows.

      After using most of the brands you've mentioned, I absolutely love Lunkerhunt frogs...real lifelike, and don't seem to fill up with water as much as the others. They also hold up really well--caught some pike and bowfin without them getting destroyed. I have been using the "Croaker" color exclusively, but definitely picking up some other patterns. They also make a popper frog which is great if you want to make a little more noise.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.
