Went out to a north metro lake tonight and was pleasently suprised. Got some nice largemouth bass early in the day i think 5 between 14 and 17 inches here is a picture of 1 of them.

A little later on i had a walleye move in got that one on a jiggin rap made 15"s too bad season was closed.

Caught some nice sunfish all day long kept one that made 8 inches. Later on the crappies moved in i was set up in 11 FOW right at the weedline and i started to see marks 1-5 feet under the ice so i brought my jigging rap up and nailed 3 crappies right in a row 2 9.5"s and 1 10.5"s. Nice night to be on the ice and it sure was fun watching all the fish come in and hit on the aqua vu,

Seems to me bass action picks up now the later it gets into spring.

Those fish up high are usually aggressive and fun. Tough to pick up on electronics. The first fish I got sunday eve. was a 9.5" crappie I spotted following my lure dropping down at about 5'. Caught a few more in the 4'-8' range over 17' FOW.Fish below 12' didn't want to bite

Yea those largemouth are fun. Looks like a great outing. I was out this afternoon on going after crappies and hooked into a 22 inch largemouth! This is definately the biggest bass I've ever caught, as I've caught several 20 inchers, a few 21's but never a 22. My guess was 6.5-7 lbs. She was a tank. It took me 7 minutes to land with 3 lb test and an ultralight. Didn't help getting caught around the vex cord. Caught her in 18 feet of water right off a weed flat on fish lake.

bassphis2005...he's sneaky (fishlakeman) but let's just do some deducing, as Holmes said ''eliminate all the impossible, and whatever remains, however improbable must be true.'' so here goes.6-7 lbs.probly not north of brainerd. or west of kandiohi.nothing east so must be more southwest or northwest or north/northeast of st.paul. in metro forum so not past maple plain, forest lake with none due west. so southwest, northwest or north/northeast. 18 feet of water, ''right off weed flat''. 18 feet deep and we must deduce that it is about 15 feet at least ''on'' the weedflat. so based on water clarity in remaining lakes and what depth weeds can grow in it must be in \:\/ ''Maple Grove''. grin.gif WHEW, that fishy detective stuff is draining. sleep.gif

Or you could do it the easy way like I did... Metro Area forum, look at his "Location" lists Maple Grove so fish lake in Maple Grove. ;\)

Im not 100% sure dont think there are any walleyes in Fish lake in Maple Grove. I used to fish it quite a bit before I got into muskie fishing. Then again I dont walleye fish either.
