Was on round on monday night and fished in a portable approx 20ft from the open water and caught our limit. On Tuesday we caught 5 but I lost at least 6 myself.

Was out on Okabena and had some perch action today. Vex was picking up a lot of fish but the bite was pretty lite. Then went to Indian Lake towards sunset and got skunked. Lake is extremely shallow but very clear water. Went out in the middle of the lake towards the open water but couldnt find anything over 4-5' deep.

Pretty amazing that Round can still be producing. That's pretty much been going on since first ice.

I do, but had to stay close for the girls. they had school today, us bankers had the day off and was my only chance to get out and fish since the sarah gettogether. As soon as I left, a buddy called and told me I was in the wrong place. Ahhh such is life. I would love to head south, but unfortunately I am still in the same situation with my father in'law. He is too tough to quit yet. Amazing

As soon as I can, you are first on my list to call.

I see bluegills on my wall right now!!!

he must be one tough dude. You really aren't missing too much right now. If things follow the usual trends things should be picking up in a couple of weeks. I may have to do a little exploring this weekend but im not satisfied following the crowd even though we were all alone both days last weekend.

well if things work out or the end comes, I will give you a call this weekend. St James is a fun lake, never caught anything with much size there, or Mt. Lake, let me know if you are going to get in either of those tourney's

I'll definitely let you know. It's not too likely that ill be in attendance at either one but I haven't totally ruled it out as of yet. They have been getting some pretty nice perch down there and I know the walleyes have been biting in one of my favorite sight fishing late afternoon jigging spots.

      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.
