My best advice for Trout Lake would be to pick an area and look for inside hook type structure. I personally like the area in the bay by the old Ryeberg Barn on the southeast side. I don't get up there nearly as often as I wish I could but always seem to find fish in that area. It's almost impossible to fish the lake without good electronics. I have seen times where a change in 2 feet of depth has resulted in the difference of a limit of eaters versus nothing. The fish in that lake really relate to structure. I like yourself would love to hear more of what the local experienced anglers do to catch walleyes out there. We have caught many big fish...but sometimes struggle to find numerous eaters. I don't get to fish during the prime times as farm work comes first.

Anybody else have any helpful hints????

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.

      I scored an ice armor extreme black and orange jacket for $140, lots of new jigs with free shirts and hats as incentives. Crowds were insane, easily the largest I have seen in many years of attendance. Had a great time though. Ice is inevitable, but my patience is not my strongest virtue
