eyes, i went out ftiday by the high lines. Fished crappies from 9:00 am till 1:00 pm. Finally, they put on the feed-bag. Caught and released about 30 fish. Most were small, however, 6 were in the 12" range. Will be out there early tomorrow and give it another try. Good luck

Was out on Friday all day. Caught 5 eyes in the morning, all shorts. Fished with some of the guys on here during the day and watched them pull in some nice crappies. Stayed out till dark and caught one 19 inch eye and a mud puppy.

Auggie, was wondering how you did Friday night. Me and J. got skunked just up river from you. We had one nice strike, other than that didn't mark much.

I fished the same break yesterday morning, got one dink walleye. Fished for crappie from 8am-3pm, wasn't marking much anywhere. Went through a tank of gas trying to find fish. Got two 16" sauger, a really nice Mooneye, a little smallie and a few perch throughout the day (rule seemed to be one fish for every dozen holes.) Wound up near where we fished Friday, just out a little deeper. Finally got into some crappie around 1:30, pulled out 5 that were nice and a few dinks before I had to get home.

They were biting really light, would barely even move the tip of a noodle rod...

Will be going out this weekend...this question has probably been asked a million times already, but, is the ice safe enough to drive from the MN side to WI or vice versa in the bayport area?

I'll be out tomorrow morning at 6 a.m. most likely in the same area as usual. Stop by and say hello.

      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.
