My uncle and about 7 or 8 other people all caught there limits on saturday. Sunday 3 of us went down there and caught are limit. Out of the other 6 I think they caught 24. All of the fish were caught in less then 5' of water. jig and minnows caught the most for everybody else.

Between the three of us though it was about 50/50 on jig minnows and shad raps casting the raps towards shore. Fish were about 15" to 22". We caught them allday long.

      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.
