My vote goes to Calhoun and Harriet. Both of these lakes see little pressure and have excellent populations of fish. If you can figure out how to launch and park you will have the lake pretty much to yourself.

#2-Harriet(same as Calhoun).
#3-Owasso
#4-Phalen(as much as I don't like fishing this lake,it has nice bass).

I'm glad to see that my favs are not listed, and I won't list them. The bass lakes I fish are very small and they are crowded enough so I'll keep them to myself.

Have a good one!

So many good ones, the best luck I had was on

1) North and South center

2) Green -6# out of there

3) Weaver - 2 to 4#r's all day long

4) Minnetonka(in the early spring or late fall-when the traffic is down)

5)Big Marine(love that clear water fishing)

I will be glad to give bass lakes away. For a big sleeper bass lake waconia is my choice. I have had bass ruin my muskie bucktails on this lake. Last time I was there in sept I cought a 23 incher on a blue n silver bucktail. It had the whole thing inhaled and bent it! The monster was released.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
