You can't go wrong with George, Duck, Sunfish or Horseshoe. Quantity may outweigh quality but if you put in your time, you'll be surprised what's in the bucket by day's end.

I'd really like to try Horseshoe and Sunfish again this weekend, Otter do you have any ideas where I could put my little brother on some fish (size doesn't matter to him, he just wants to catch fish on his birthday).

Sunfish- Look around the deep hole on the south end. All the 6-8 inch crappies you can catch. Still havent found the big ones yet. But still looking.......

Sunfish Lake is located North of Waterville on the East side of Hwy.13. As far as places to warm-up, you've got options of either driving to Waterville, Le Center or Montgomery, all of which would be ~10 - 15 miles away.

Not sure about the underwater camera...

I was hoping to take my 5 year old out this weekend. I'd like to stay close to Mankato so George Lake looked good. Any thoughts on depth for sunnies or crappies? Thanks.

I would go to duck sdmaclean. I fished George 2 weeks ago for panfish and I caught about 30 sunnies. Not 1 was a keeper and they were very skinny fish.

How thick is the ice and where can I get a map of the lake.

George has some nice fish in it. I'd look in 2 places, shallow in cover or out over the basin but I suspect those fish would be traveling high in the water column and maybe even right under the ice.

Thanks for the advice. My plans changed and I think I will be going to Duck. I'll let you know how it goes.

Thanks for the advice Otter. The fishing wasn't the best, but the two younger ones still had a blast. Just goes to prove that you don't always have to catch a ton of fish to have a great time!

      Thanks for the feedback friends, looks like about a $3,500 surgery and yes, the professionals say what you have all said that a second ACL injury happens often in the other hind leg as a result of over compensating....

      Here is the prize list for this years contest. Lots of food and drinks available at the contest also. Booya will again be sold on the ice provided by the Little Canada Fire Department.   My apologies, I cannot figure out why this will not present the correct way.   Fishing Prizes 2017.pdfFishing Prizes 2017.pdfFishing Prizes 2017.pdf

      The warm weather has opened up some cracks and you can watch the road operators earn their money.  New roads were popping up quickly and bridges were set and the day went off without a hitch.  Thanks for good quick work so we could all fish today. BTW....fishing is staying pretty solid.....Here is today's report

      Chuck was a real, authentic, honest to goodness good guy.  He loved being on the radio and you could tell.  Radio lost a friend.  RIP Chuck
