Thanks

Haven't been out there yet with the canoe this year but there are some fish in there. Bass on teh weed edges and the occasional Muskie or pike. If you after the panfish you will have no problem catching them. If it is size your after, don't go there...

This lake sucks because the lake's property owners hate fishermen. They'll jet ski and water ski within casting distance of your boat..... no joke! I've never heard of too many nice fish being caught here either. The access is kind of lame too.

What about Fish then? Or is there another smaller lake close by?

if you're intent on staying in maple grove, you could try eagle. it gets a ton of pressure, but you can usually find a spot to fish on it. it's not too big either. bigger than weaver, but that's not saying much as weaver is just a mere puddle. depends on where you live though, and what you're after.

Doesn't have to be Maple Grove but I would like to stay off of large lakes such as WBL and would like to be around the Champlin, Plymouth, surrounding area. I was thinking about Linwood but that's a bit further than I really wanted to drive.

You dont have to worry about homeowners causing problems for you on Weaver(or any lake for that matter) if you get out early enough in the morning.

Weaver can be a pretty darn good bass lake if you ask me.

I have had some nice success there, but all of it has been in the morning on weekdays before the locals stir up the lake. I had a buddy who fishing there last year get basicly ran off the lake by the locals, they were running their boat around him and would not leave until he finally just gave up.

Thanks for all the input guys. We decided to try Bald Eagle instead. Its got a ton of structure and many humps. We're not getting out until around 8am so hopefully we'll get a couple of hours in before any rec boaters get to it and it looks like there are some bays as well.

I'll post back and let you know how we did.

      A buddy and I fished fri. 4-14 had some ice issues once it hit shore and the wave action it was gone pretty quick. We fished about 5.5 hrs  5-fish 39-36-34- and 2 mid 20s. I went back mon. and tues. slow at first between 1-5 7 fish but the biggest was 32in the people out were getting fish also, tues got one right away 36 then it got dead the other people out did not catch any thing either may be the weather, it was pretty brutal and didn't stay to long. Proably wont get to Lowts for awhile now and always enjoy going their. Stay Safe Good Luck Bear55

      I'm pretty sure the old owner Jack still owns the property and leases to the landing. I live close and with an inclusive business plan I think it would do fantastic. When jack ran it the place was packed. The owner of wolf bay lodge told me his business tripled since the landing changed hands. There is plenty of demand for a fun place to go that treats everyone the same whether they are rich or not, local or tourist. I've owned a few businesses in this area and there aren't enough extra customers that you can afford to get rid of anyone. Why anyone would want to is beyond me.
