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!

      The Department of Natural Resources designated the state’s third groundwater management area this week. The Straight River Groundwater Management Area in northwestern Minnesota includes parts of southern Clearwater, northeast Becker, southwest Hubbard and northwest Wadena counties. Cities within the boundary include Park Rapids, Osage and Ponsford.  In addition to the designation, the DNR approved a management plan for it. The plan lays out five objectives with specific actions the DNR will take to ensure that use of groundwater remains sustainable within the area. The plan was developed over several years with the help of an internal DNR project team, an advisory team of external stakeholders, and additional public review and discussion. “With more than 10,000 lakes, thousands of miles of rivers and streams, and many thousands of acres of wetlands, it might be natural to think that our water is essentially unlimited,” said DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr. “But in some parts of the state, the unseen, underground aquifers that make up our groundwater resources are under pressure to meet growing needs for domestic water supplies, irrigation, industrial and other uses. These groundwater resources also are interconnected with lakes, streams and wetlands that we value for commerce, recreation, and water supplies. Those surface waters also provide the habitat needed by many animals and plants. If we are not careful in how we use water, both economic development and ecosystems could be put at risk.” The plan provides a framework within which the DNR will work with major water users, including municipalities and agricultural irrigators, to use groundwater sustainably. This cooperative effort will promote conservation, protect surface waters and water quality, improve the groundwater appropriations permitting process, and help resolve any conflicts that might arise among users. This is one of three groundwater management areas being established around Minnesota. The other two are in the north and east metropolitan area and in the Bonanza Valley near Paynesville in west-central Minnesota. More information, including plans and maps for the Straight River Groundwater Management Area, can be found at on the management area webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I've never herd of any tullibee being caught from open water. Doesn't mean it's not possible but I'm not going to say you can go out and slay em. Hopefully others chime in and answer you question with certainty.

      I would say it's fine. M-MH are very good for many things just need to be careful when throwing things heavy if it's close to the max lure weight. That's when bad things happen. Didn't really answer your question but hope that helps.
