There are lots of spots out there you just have to go looking. Ive seen a few walleyes on the camera out in front of the pavilion but they are not biting. Time to go find some structure. Good luck.

O6ut in front of the pavillion on Little D is mostly a panfish bite, and early ice walleye bite. Mostly community fishing as that small of an area can not support good fishing for the over 70 houses that are out there. Walleye fishing on Big Detroit can be good, but it is a classic dawn/dusk bite but the fish can be large. Find some textbook walleye structure and you should get into some fish.

very few walleyes and the crappies are small, but you can catch a few crappies in that 11 inch range. Good luck.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
