Harriet or Nokomis

If this rain ever stops I am going fishing tomorrow night. Which lake would you guys fish. I will be in a boat targeting eyes and bottle bass. I haven't ever fished either one and am leaning toward Harriet.

I would choose Harriet - mainly because I haven't fished Nokomis but with that said, I've fished Harriet off and on over the last 3 years and have always had pretty decent success. Mostly on the small side if you fish from shore but still some pretty consistant action.

Early season is usually a little on the slow side, but if you get some action the quality of fish will be well worth the wait. In mid summer I would catch a lot of 8-12 inch bass but in the spring hardly anything but a couple bass - but those few bass were 4+ lbs a piece.

Good luck - I'd give ya some spots, but I can't give out all the secrets wink.gif

Either could be good but I would lean toward Harriet.. The bullheads should be coming to life at Nokomis and that can get annoying. The walleyes should be in the shallows at Nokomis in the evening hours.. 7-12 feet is the norm.

Harriet the walleyes will be where they always are .. right on the outside of the weeds. Be prepared for lots of smaller eyes.. when you hit larger fish.. stay on them. If you cant get out of the smaller eyes you can try dropping off the 2nd break in 25-30 feet of water(sometimes). A better alternative is to use larger baits in the shallows to keep the cigars off... This time of year the area between the pavilion and the beach can be very good.. also the south end of the lake(far less pressure).

My fishing buddy wanted to go to Nokomis, so off we went. Got into the cigars right away, had some fun, and went looking for the bigger fish. We didn't catch anything worth mentioning though. Great night on the lake. My first time on a city lake and won't be my last.
