Lotus Lake in Chanhassen???

6 posts in this topic

Anyone been out on Lotus? I was out last night for a few hours, and only caught a few small crappie. I was able to drive out to carver beach from the landing though so that was kinda nice(16" of good ice)... Has anyone had much walleye action? Good Fishing

A few small crappies is all I ever seem to catch on Lotus, bites have been few and far between. I usually set up on the community spot next to Carver Beach.

There are pike but i think abundance is fairly low, i have heard of some real nice northerns (>10)coming out of the lake. This is what the dnr have to say about the northerns "Northern pike abundance is below that observed in 1999, but most of the fish were 30 inches or greater in length and weighed over six pounds."

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?

      Wow that ice went fast fished below the dam in Cold spring today. 3 feisty pike that was fun. Where the landing is there was about 20 feet of ice at the access. i was hoping to get the boat out but not yet. If anyone see's the ice go out by the landing let me know. Would like to get out however by Friday have heard any where from 1 inch to 20 so we will see.

        Do those 6" filet knifes work pretty good for pan fish?
