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!

      Wow was it a foggy son of a gun yesterday. In a week or so the hard pack is melted down and there is a lot of slush out there. The roads turned into shallow rivers but there is still a solid block of ice in between the layers of water!  Lots of folks out there yesterday, it was hard to tell until the fog lifted. We fished in 15' of water next to a little bowl of 32' of water and it started out pretty slow. We had three 8 year old girls and they ended up making snowmen for the first hour lol.    About 4 o'clock we caught our first perch, it was a flurry after that until dark. Quite a bit of sorting to do but we kept a dozen and a half in the 9 to 10" range. We caught a few in the 11" range too.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.
