Did you have any luck? I'm thinking about going out Wednesday night for walleye. I'll probably go with minnows and slip bobbers since I'll have a couple of kids along.

Thanks!

Mike

35w to 96 west to 61 north, past white bear, left at 91(??)

go south down the frontage road and the lake will be on the west side of 61 and its frontage road.

THis will avoid all the construction on 35e, and 694, and 61 around maplewood mall area...

i love the lake, and its already crowded in the winter, so i'm not telling no secrets people don't already know.

I don't expect secrets, the only secrets I need are the quickest routes to get there. My enjoyment comes from exploring new lakes

Hey Joey,

My Dad's coming to town today before heading down to Mayo. I want to take him out to hit some fish. Can you give me an idea where you were on the lake? I don't expect a honey hole, just maybe an area? You could email me at s_e_hendricks@comcast.net.

I really cant give any locations, but if you check out a map, you'll see there are many good spots ranging from weed beds, to rock beds, and around the island, and points and reed islands.. and bays, jeeze, i guess there are just a ton of good spots to hit up....

It was a while ago, but we were nailing smaller bass like crazy fishing the docks on the south and west side, and got some muskies on a shallow weed flat out in the middle of the lake. Got some walleyes earlier in the year on a sharp drop/point out in the 12 foot range. I bet they have all moved some, but not a bad place to start. Good luck!

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
