I know a couple guys that went up this last weekend and said the fishing was tough. Caught some nice perch on Leech but that was about it. Smaller lakes were slow, very slow.

We were up in the Outing area last weekend and hit up Eagle lake, caught hundreds of sunfish but only were able to keep 30 for 4 guys, lots of sorting. Picked up a couple little snakes on a tip up with shiner. As far as ice goes there was a solid 2+ft on the lake and i guess they've been driving all over up there for quite some time. The lake are fairly rough due to the early slush freezing and the tracks made through them but overall i'd say the lakes are better then i ever thought they would be this year.

      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.
