Parley Lake east of Waconia

Anyone been out to Parley? That's usually a pretty good bet for early season Crappies.

Went out there tonight, dead sea. Tons of people out there. This lake is usually an early season must for crappie, apparently they aren't biting anywhere. No one caught any, although one guy saw them come in on Vexilar but just passed through with nothing more than scaring the minnow.

I was also on Parley last night. Yes, DEAD SEA. My buddy did catch a 16" Walleye.

And for the guy who flipped me the bird as I was riding my ATV past the vicinity of his house, RELAX. You are sure to die from hypertension if you don't become a nicer, more relaxed person...

I can also attest to the dead sea comments on Sunday. I spent half of the day Sunday digging out my ice fishing stuff and gtting the kids ready to go to the lake only to find out nothing's biting. Oh well, now everthing is ready to go and it was a beautiful day/evening on the lake. We didn't see anything on the vex's until just before dark. Then we saw several fish but could only get one 5 inch perch to bite.

We did find a solid 12 inches of clear ice all the way across the lake.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.

      Crawlers work great for a mixed bag of fish.  Fresh cut bait like suckers or shad work great for channel cats.  I've never fished North Lake in Red Wing. Have fun!

      Have you or anyone tried North Lake in Red Wing by Treasure Island?? Just curious if anything have been biting there?
