went out last night after work 230 am till bout 630am. Nothing but sunfish couldnt keep them off leeches. Switched to fat heads never got another bite.thinkin the thirty degree temp difference in two days might have shut the walleyes down a little.

I was out on Clear today, 12-5 pm. Caught a few crappies, lots of sunfish. Crappies were in around 6' of water mixed in with the sunfish. Caught everything on wax worms.

We did get out. Didn't get to use your pointers though. We were going after the pannies first. Bites constantly but had a hard time getting them to hook. Came home with a few. Good time on that little lake. Used to more action though.

just wanted to let everyone that uses the lake that might not know. The bass are all catch and release. I'm not pointing any fingers, so if your looking to criticize me save your breath.

It used to be plainly posted at each landing. It has been this way for at least 10 years. I'd call tip if I saw anyone keeping them out there. Ignorance is no defense, but this may be a good reminder for everyone to make sure of special lake regulations when planning an outing.

Just wondering if there is any new info out there about clear Lake in Waseca? Hav been out there twice now in the last week and have gotten completely skunked. I will admit I am not the worlds best fisherman but I mean really. I have always had good luck out there in the winter and fair luck in the summer until this year. I know that there is eyes out there as my buddie and I always get a few during hard ice, but whats the best way to get them going in the summer /fall? Any help would be great, my 5 1/2 year old has really gotten into fishing theis year and I would love to get a few bigger ones for him. Thanks for any replies!!

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Then Crooked lake pier fits the bill they like corn or worms   or what city are you looking around?

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)

      Well if you are looking in the Minneapolis lake nokomis has a fishing pier   North metro Crooked lake in Andover has a pier. There is a nice park as well and all the sunfish you want to catch no big ones though.
