nice size sunfish in 15 fow about 9 feet down with small jig and a piece of leech. Slibobbers work good try the edge of any weedline you mark consistent suspended fish then anchor you will catch plenty of pannies and im sure a few bass in the process. Walleye fishing is tough unless you get out after dark, even then spotty to say the least

Out on Minnewaska today and ouch...any hints or help on the fall minnewaska bite would be well appreciated! Lots of bass, along with a couple crappies and big sunnies. Do walleyes exist in this lake?

I was out on Sunday fishing for smallies. I was in 2.5 to 3 feet on the edge of the weed rock transition and caught 3 walleyes on a rattle trap. This was in the middle of the day. Also caught a ton of bass and a 6 and 7 pound pike. I wasn't fishing for walleyes but I would say that in the evening if you go really shallow and cast some shallow running cranks ripping them through the isolated weed clumps you should find some walleyes.

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
