First off, welcome to Fishing Minnesota. You have come upon a great resource. Enjoy your time spent on this forum as well as the many others that are offered on this website. Now, on to the meat of your question...

From now until ice-up, the N and W ends of the lake typically produce the most fish, regardless of the species. I would specifically target wind-blown points and sandy shorelines. The area E of the Boy Scout Camp, 3rd Point, Squirrel's Nest Point, N of the Narrows, the NW corner of Baker's Bay and the inside turn of 2nd Point are all good places to start. grin.gif

Thanks for the response! I only know where Squirrel's Nest Point is...where is the Boy Scout region, or what you call 2nd and 3rd point?? What about the SW bay? Is that any good? I am a white spinner bait or Texas rig worm guy...and I love to use sucker minnows!! Thanks a ton!!!

If you use the landing at Westwood which is on the north west side of the lake and go straight south you will run into the bay.Going from the landing to the east you will go through the narrows and keep going until you see a point on your left and that is second point.When you get to the second point turn to the left or north and the next point on your left will be third point.There is a deep hole approx 40 yards to the east of the point that will drop to 40 feet.From that hole if you go straight north towards shore you will see some weeds standing in the water in approx 4 fow.This area is called Grassy Island which also can hold many different species.Going to the east south east along the other shoreline you will come by the boy scout camp.I have had pretty good luck in the late summer and early fall around grassy island in the early mornings for eyes and panfish.I have not been there in the last few weeks and it is probably fairly shallow.

Another area that can also be very productive is to go around squirrels nest point and to the left and you will find Bakers bay which holds a 30foot hole.This hole can also be good for eyes,crappies and sunnies.

Usually during the summer months the crappies are roamers on this lake but with a little searching you can find some of the nicer crappies for this areas lakes on Washington.Some days the eyes can be pretty good but this year the eyes have been somewhat hard to come by.Sunfish are very plentiful and the lake holds some real beauties.

If you will be needing bait on the way to the lake Reel Fishing and Tackle in Madison Lake and Hermies in St peter will have all your bait needs and they are sponsors on Fishing Mn.These people are some of the sponsors that help make be possible for members to visit for free so if at all possible when driving by them stop in and get your bait and say hi.They can also give you some of the areas hot lakes and bait needed.

If you would like a little company one morning just send me a e-mail and we can see if we can catch a few.My falls are very busy with hunting and fishing but I do get to Washington a fair amount of times.

Good luck fishing.
