Recommendations on New Walleye Lakes in Metro

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello all,

I live about an hour south of the twin cities and most of the lakes don't contain too many walleyes. Needless to say haven't caught any and I would prefer better odds of fishing an established lake in the middle-southern parts of the metro.

So if any of you wouldn't mind suggesting some lakes to try I would appreciate it.

I apologize, I live in New Prague which is basically directly south of the metro. The driving distance is not a problem however so if their are really good lakes in the middle of the metro then that would be awesome.

I seen a Vexilar rep at fleet farm. He pointed out lotus lake to me. Very high stocking numbers for walleye. But yet Marion has high stocking numbers for walleye and I’ve never seen one outta there.

      Nice gill Rick

      HunterFisher Don't rule out trying that lake again. If theres a lot of wood in the water those schools could, be pinned down on other trees than you were fishing. Trust me I have a lake near Glenwood i fish that has a bunch of tress scattered throughout the lake. It took me numerous times fishing it to figure out patterns on that lake. But once i found them well worth it!  I have found lakes with a lot of submerged trees or wood usally hold some real good panfish, . They have plenty of places to hide from predators and anglers through out the seasons.

      See you tomorrow Jeff we'll dial them in

      Keep checking in here for any updates.  There's a very good chance that the location may change a bit as there have not been a lot of catfish at the methhole area.  Prefishing in the next day or so will help us pin down a location.  I will post any changes here.
    • Borch
      A lake like that with no real hole or structure lends itself to roaming fish.  If there is a defined weededge that will be your structure.  Electronics are not going to show you much until the fish is on your bait.  Drill a lot of holes and move around until you catch fish.

      Hay thanks for your input.... Just got home and got skunked!!!!! But that is ok at least now I know to take it off my list of lakes to fish in the winter, but will be back on it come spring and early summer...

      Caught 17 walleyes on Friday, but all were dinks except for two 15".  Caught 6 more Saturday, all small again except for one 16".  Also caught a 12 inch perch, 3 eelpout, and 2 tulibee. Considering the snowstorm prediction for Sunday, I pulled my house off the lake and parked it back in the garage for the season.  LOW next week, then onto lakers the following weekend.
    • JerkinLips
      I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday. I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday.
