As I sit here at work at my desk surfing the fishing web sites all I want to do is for it to be friday! I know it is 80 and sunny today and it will be 55 and cloudy all weekend but I just CAN'T WAIT! I WANNA GO FISHING! I WANNA GO FISHING! (The voice in my head is yelling) Breaking out in a cold sweat now. Getting the shakes, I need it bad. The guys in the shop just laugh at me cause they know I don't care about anything but fishing right now. I have to till the garden tonight. till...tiller...backtrolling...AAAAHHHHH! Can't think. Need to consentrate...concentrate on FISHING!!!!!!!

Well overdalimit, you should be having a sleepless night counting walleye trying to get to sleep with the excitement of the opener just hours away. I envy you, as I have to keep this fever in check for another 4 wks, you can only clean the boat, check the supply list and test the motor so many times. I will be heading to Lake erie this weekend to hold me over, but its just not the same as the scenery and relaxation the Kab/Nam bring to the table. Good luck this weekend and be safe.

I know the feeling. Can't fish this weekend, I am on call. Going to VNP on the 22nd. It can't get here fast enough. MAYBE next weekend I can get out on the St Louis and hook a few to calm my excitement.

You aint a kiddin' couldn't sleep last night! I was awake until at least 1:30 (went to bed at 10:00). I will be thinking of you guys and I appreciate the sentiments. Got to load the truck and wait for my fishing partners.

I just got home. Had a great time! Lots of fish were caught and the majority were between 19 and 26 inches! We personaly took 1 keeper 16 1/2 inch walleye and 2 more that had to go back cause they were too big, but we stopped fishing at around 7:00 pm. Our friends came in at around 9:00 pm with 13 keeper fish! Go shallow with a jig and a minnow.

      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.
