Someone mentioned a giant log blocking the Lilydale Ramp.

You may want to have a backup plan or trade cell numbers if someone jumps on.

How was the bite today TBOMN? I look forward to hitting the mighty Miss on Sunday afternoon?

The hot bite is getting so close I can almost feel the heat!

Things were slow. We hit the wingdams hard, nothing. Worked the rip-rap hard, took several white bass, some large sheepies, one sauger on the deep end, and one nice eye. All in all it was a great day, no wind, warm.....what else other than a beautiful day on the river. Ringworms and hair worked about the same.Good luck tomorrow, let us know how you do.

Do you tip the hair jig with anything? Minnow or curly grub?

Joe, I think I saw you down there on saturday fishing the end of a wingdam. I was in a grey lund with Monica and my yellow lab. Guessing thats were you caught the sauger... the area has been loaded with them. Next time I will stop by and say HI! Plastics have been the ticket for me the last week or so.

      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
