3/1 Report

Or lack there of I should say. Drove across to the WI side...should've known it was going to be a bad day when after I get to the other side, I get stuck in a snow drift. So if the guys in a tan truck with plow are FM'ers, thank you for pulling me out and even plowing a better path for me to make it back to the main road.

As for the fishing...NOTHING! Fished 9 to 36 ft deep. Had 1 bite, in 19 ft. Felt pretty good sized but I lost it halfway up. I'm thinking either mudpuppy or walleye. Other than that, no nibbles...didn't even mark any fish.

sorry about the bad luck. Sounds like you might have had a walleye for a smallie by the depth that you were fishing.

Went out this morning by the open water. Only 8 inches of ice. The bites were really light Lots of fish jumping in the open water. Some crazy snomobilers decided to fly over the open water. What a sight!

      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.
