I live near there also. I have fished there twice this year and caught one crappie. There is a feeder stream running into the lake at the north end, you can get there by foot or jon boat. try that right now and let me know.

i don't get around so good anymore- is there a nice path i could use to get there. maybe i could call my grandson and he would take my boat out there, but he never returns my calls. if you ever fish at tanners let me know and i will make my way to the boat launch and meet you.

I sure hope your grandson comes to his senses and gets back to you old star. I absolutely loved fishing with my grandfather, and in fact credit most of what I learned to him (as well as my grandmother). Kids just get wrapped up in being "kids" I guess. Good luck fishing!!

Old Star, you could try fishing right from the access. There is some gravel there, where the gravel meets the mud is good same goes for the beach-- sand meets the mud. try plastic jigs or flu flus. I havent bought bait yet this year. White jigs on sunny days and pink or yellow on cloudy. I have not tried these spots as of late, its just some friendly advice. You can tie the jig a couple feet below a bobber and retrieve slowly. good luck

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!
