What to do? Where to go?

7 posts in this topic

I have spent opening weekend on Lake Vermillion the last 15 years. Prior to that it was Mille Lacs for 10 years. Now that we have the "shack" in Emily it is time for another change in lakes. Something closer to Emily? And also maybe a smaller lake as the liitle woman is coming this year. I await any and all ideas-no secret spots-just some good starting spots. Anybody? smile.gifsmile.gif

Two words for you. "Gull Lake"! If it is anything like it was last year it will be nothing short of phenomenal. Another good choice is Pelican. You already know how great Mille Lacs can be, though sometimes a little busy. There are lots of great lakes up in the Emily area that do not get the publicity. Just stay mobile and hop around a little. Sooner or later you will connect. Good luck.

I know some people have done well on the channel from emily to mary lake. this was some years ago but may be worth a shot. I"ll be at millacs myself, and couldn't imagine going anywhere else!

      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.
