SO anyone got some info on how the fishing was there sat. I saw about five or six boats fishing by the bridge there, a spot i have been eyeing up for a while now, i guess i wasnt the only one. just wondering how people did, any info would be great.

That bridge spot can be good.

I stopped for a peek a few years ago and saw 7 Walleyes landed in the 15 minutes I was watching.

I've heard of people catching walleyes, but have never seen it myself. I have seen northerns caught right off the pier by the boat launch.

If you go there, get out early. Any nice day there seems to be a few ski boats there, plus limited parking.

A buddy told me someone was netting fish on the lake the other day, so keep the TIP number handy!

The bridge area does hold some fish but nothing like it was a few years ago. I think that the amount of pressure that little area got for a while has kinda screwed it up. There are some better spots on the lake to catch fish.

Concreteman - pop me an e-mail, I fish the lake quite often. eric@siteplacement.net

Tuesday night after the wind calmed it was a nice night. I tried the outlet (long lake road bridge) and managed one small walleye. Later I went up the inlet (hiking bridge) with no luck aside from catching a couple neighbor boys smoking cigarettes.

Managed a couple crappies in one of the bays towards the end of the night.

Anybody have consistant luck on this lake with a couple tactics? I've caught the occasional eyeball in the weeds throwing shad raps, and a handful of them in moving water with floating raps and swim/jerk baits. Does lindy rigging pay off in the spring? I marked some fish close to the bottom in the south end of the lake in about 20 fow but I'm not sure what they were.

Late last summer I was marking fish on the south end in 20 fow as well. It was getting dark and the bites started coming - bullheads!

They do catch eyes off the fishing dock, so they must be down there as well.

      My garage roof is leaking from last few weeks and i am very much tensed about it because i have tried many things to block the leaks but nothing can prevent it.So i must call Roof Repair expert for this or is there any way to prevent those leaks.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
