Bside luck 2/10-2/11?

3 posts in this topic

Hi guys!

Finally got logged in! I've been reading your threads since early Jan. Thanks for sharing so much. My first Bside laker outing was opener, caught 3 in two days. It was enough to make me happy. Was back there last weekend for 3 days and my buddy caught 1. I Lost 3 though. Poor me!

It seemed like a tough bite to me. I was wondering how the Vets did. I heard reports the lake was on fire recently, like several 11 pounders, limits for groups, and even a 20 off Snowbank. I travel for challenges and know I have found one at Bside.

I recently acquired a lot west of town by the Kiwishiwi and plan to be a once a monther at least. I'm already looking forward to experiencing next year's bash and hopefully meeting you guys!

Thanks for everything! Apologies to Quickstrike for dropping in on his other name.

Glad you got some fish. It's alright, actually kind of fitting that your first posts are about Burntside and that Ely is where I actually aquired my nickname. grin.gif

Hey Wanderer: Welcome to FM. Great to see you here! grin.gif

I haven't hit Bside since the Bash weekend on Jan. 27, so I'm no fountain of current info.

I will be introducing a walleye buddy of mine to laker fishing tomorrow on Bside, and may be fishing Sunday as well, and will report how it goes.

      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.
