I fished west newton(Half Moon landing) last Tue. thousands of 2 to 4 inch bluegills out of 50 fish caught 2 were brushing 8 inch and maybe 5 in the seven inch range I fished both landing and could not find any "keepers", but the camera showed clouds of the little guys. Fished airport lake last Wed. and came home with 3 crappies and 7 bluegills also watched a northern on my camera and talked to a person that had a 8lb fish on the ice, a tip-up might be worth a try. Have have heard good things about Trempealeau and Dresbeck dams(sauger and eyes) but the current situation there keeps me from confirming. Moving alot seemed to help if you like setting up try changing jigs when it slows down. Fish in both places fish would turn away from a whole waxie but the same fish would eat a half waxie on the same jig.

Hope this helps and have a good trip,

Buck

      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.
