I've been reading these forums for a long time, but finally decided to start using them...

I'm taking the boat out Saturday morning and would like to try a new lake. I live in the south metro and I'm willing to drive a bit to get at some decent fishing. I normally fish on Crystal, Marian, Keller, Orchard, etc, but have put much more time in up on Cass. I'm still learning how to fish these metro lakes.

I'd like to target walleye, so any suggestions for a decent lake and what they might be hitting would be much appreciated! Also, with the recent warm weather, does anyone have any idea what depth they're hiding out at? If the walleye bite is dead right now, I wouldn't mind chasing some northerns around either.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
