Fished it a couple times earlier this year, didn't catch much. I have spent most of my time this winter out on Bald Oagle.

Phalen Lake is one of the closest lake to where I live and I fish it agressively during both hard and soft water seasons. For anybody interested in fishing Phalen Lake - I will tell you that it's not easy in my opinion. I have fished this lake for approximately 8 years or more. I have basically drilled numerous holes throughout the entire lake and dropped my underwater camera down into the lake in order to see what the lake looks like at the bottom and it varies from plain, muddy bottoms to gravels, rocks, and boulders to all vegetation and so forth - kind of like most lakes, but I can tell you all for sure - there's nothing in 60 - 90 feet area of the lake because it's so dark the underwater camera even with it's lights on can not fully display what is laying out there in the horizon. Anyways...if you want Walleyes and Perches - I would recommend fishing in 20 to 30 feet of water approximately 50 yards out from the beach shore by the southern part of the lake otherwise staying mobile is the key. I have never caught more then one crappie during the winter season on Phalen - maybe it's my bad luck, but I have caught some decent walleyes (Keepers) and numerous perches 5-8 inches.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
