I will be staying at Rugged River resort the week of 6/2-6/9. Wondering if anyone can give me any info that might help on fishing this stretch of the river. I fish the St.Croix and Miss. south of Clearwater a lot. Just wondering about any areas to watch out for, upriver/downriver. Not looking for your honey holes, just something to get started. Thank you in advance.

I was out there on last thursday and we did great on gills and crappies. You will be staying right next to one of the best points on the river for all types of fish. Go out the little canal there and first point on the right. Usually always a boat there catching something. I've caught smallies walleyes pike and suckers and just about everything else that swims in a river on that point. As far as how far to go up when heading upriver there are huge wires over the river and just past those there is an oxbow called little rabbit lake also very good. a few miles past that you better start watchin the locator. Have'nt been up that far this year and i can't exactly tell you how far up you can go.

      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.
