i have fished this lake twice so far, the first time we went out i avoided the big group off to the right cause i hate fishing in crowds, usaully the fish are very weary and there is no privacy, so we went out into the middle of the lake, i found a hump out there we fished in about 12 feet off the s.e. side of the hump and caught between 45 and 50 bluegills between three guys, started out slow, very timid fish then we down sized to tiny marmoska jigs and a few spikes and we caught them left and right, water was clear enough to sight fish them, fun!!! about 15-20 of them would have kept but we realesed them all. but i went out the next day hoping to bring home a few fish and went out the same time on the same exact spot and caught 4 tiny fish, they just up and packed their bags. o well hope this is helpful.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.

      I scored an ice armor extreme black and orange jacket for $140, lots of new jigs with free shirts and hats as incentives. Crowds were insane, easily the largest I have seen in many years of attendance. Had a great time though. Ice is inevitable, but my patience is not my strongest virtue
