Longville area action?

9 posts in this topic

Going to head out this weekend with at least one brother in law. Normally we hit ML as it is central to where people live but the reports from there are so slow that we are looking else where.

Has there been any action on Little Boy or Woman for walleyes or perch? Maybe Wabado for crappies? We are not picky. My brother in law claims his wife caught him fishing in the toilet bowl so it is time to get out on the ice!

If the shacks are still on wabedo,thats were I would go.If not familiar with the area,do a drive by some of the lakes.Sometimes you can catch the same amount in the toilet.

As I started this topic I thought I should report back although it might not be best forum location.

We ended up stopping at Bay Lake instead of heading the rest of the way to Longville area. Fishing was very slow during the day with a couple of bass, tiny northerns and one perch. Mid afternoon we picked up one crappie in deep water so we all moved out there and watched our bobbers do nothing for a couple of hours. We spent a lot of time discussing a move to a different lake but could not come up with an option that motivated us. Moved back in shallower about 4pm, picked up a couple more northerns and 1 more bass. Then at about 5:30 the crappies suddenly appeared and action was very fast for about an hour and then done. We ended up with 20 crappies for three guys with good to very good sizes and only one too small. All in all alot better day than fishing in the toilet bowl!

      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.
