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.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.
