welcome to FishingMinnesota TS... great to have you on the site!

Take 35 North and exit on HWY 8.. take that to Olinda Trail(should be a DQ on the right hand side) take a right, go down a little over a mile I think to 295th St. Take a left.. boat landing is about 2 blocks down on your left...

as for where the walleye are? I would drift lindy rigs with a leech around in 10-30 feet of water...I havn't been out there yet, but the landing was pretty vacant on sunday so I assume the bite was not all that good saturday... few were back.

I was there on the opener and got one walleye about 8 inches long. I saw one other boat catch 2 bluegills, other than that no one was catching fish that I saw. I'm sure with more stable weather the fishing will improve.

BTW Man the curly-leaf pondweed was BAD!!! I haven't been on the lake early in the year for quite a while and boy it has changed. No wonder last summer it was pea green with no vegetation.

I was with a group of 3 boats and we boated 2 walleyes, one was 14 the other just a hair over 16, my son tried to horse one in before getting the net and it got off a couple inches above the water. I tried to tell him to wait a second, but, you know us, instant gratification. shocked.gif

I want opinions. On opener, we had been catching sunnies. most were dinks, but, we started catching larger ones... average fish would have been just smaller than 8 inches, we kept 75 sunnies in this size range. I try to do the best I can at selective harvest, now before anyone jumps down my throat, there was 6 guys and we all wanted a meal, sunnies just ended up being on the menu. We were nowhere near our limit. There were none going over 9 inches and there may have been two in the mix at 9. Are these the better sizes to keep? Or what would be a better option?

It was typical metro area lake pannies.. it takes 3 to make one.

Hey Trout, just pick me up, I will lead you in the right direction. I am just accross the street in Blaine. I fish the area often enough, could maybe even put you on fish.

There are going to be a lot of opinions on that one... I personally think you were fine keeping what you did as long as none of them went to waste. You didn't keep any monsters, and the lake has a pretty healthy population of gills. I thnk your fine.

I will not waste a fish intentionally (I have had a freezer crap out on me once unfortunately fish was not the only thing lost). the other guys feel the same way.

Great day of fishing for the pannies. I think it is fine to keep that amount when you are not by yourself like you sated and you are going to be eating them. I bet they were tasty. good eatin!
