Ok i am not new to the area or anything i just havent got around to finding many lakes that are around the rochester area. I do fish Lake Zumbro. I know lake Byllsby(spelling) that is near Cannon Falls. But are there any lakes that are around the rochester area(within up to say 70miles)? Any help would be great. And also preferably lakes with boat ramp access. Thanks

Lake Pepin. 35 miles east of Rochester on Hwy 63. Some of the best walleye and bass fishing anywhere. Great launches at Roschen park and Hok-Si-La in Lake City.

There's other good areas to fish near Rochester... but none BETTER than Pepin.

Best of luck.

Chester Woods (7 miles from Roch)has a boat launch. All the lakes around Fairbault are great and have launches.

Gamehaven (Boy Scout Lake) and Willow Creek Resevoirs (within 3 miles of Roch)do not have boat access but both hold nice large mouth, crappies, catfish and sunnies.

I fish all three of these after work a lot but on weekends i like to head to the Lake Peppin in Lake City.

Hope this helps.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.
