Not a bad day

7 posts in this topic

Myself and a friend hit a local lake this morning for a few pannies. The crappies and sunnies did co-operate and we caught a nice bunch of fish for a meal. All fish were caught in approx 24fow and most were suspended about 6-8ft off the bottom.

Again today, the go to jig was JB Lures, JU-JU's tipped with a euro-larve. This jig has been very good to me the last few times out.

Size 8 & 10, green in color. The fish would run right up to the jig and hit it. Pretty aggressive. smile.gif

Sounds like a good day of fishing. Keep up the good work. I'm hoping for the same luck this weekend. You got to love fishing in this nice weather. How is the lake holding up?

It was a little sloppy on top but not too bad. The landing was the worst with approx 6-8 inches of water and slush.

Thanks for the tip on the Ju Ju's Tom. Just picked some up at AgriFleet here in Gaylord. Will give them a try at the clean-up. wink.gif

      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.
