It's hit and miss... Lots of "Out of No where" Shallow sand bars and dead heads... So don't go just blasting through until you kind of get the lay of the land etc..

And beware the landing has a wash out drop off... When the Concrete Runner end, it drops down like 5 feet... I got my axle and tire of my trailer hung up on it last year, and had to take one nasty cold dip... Pinned myself between the dock and the trailer lifing up while my buddy gaffed it!

So when you're backing it up, stop the instant the boat floats, and don't risk it any deeper.

It's best calling feature is the hearty year class of Mid 20's pike... If you're a master at Y-boning there's a meal to be caught in there.

      I took my kids for a monticello outing yesterday, but my boy spiked a fever on the way so I had to abort mission.  Tried a little shorefishing at home this afternoon in Brooklyn Park. I tried spoons, jerkbaits and ringworms. No action.

      Heading to Grand rapids on Wed. Any chance a guy can drive back in the woods with a car??

      Palmer lake is good for sunfish (and it's kind of a pond), but it's been getting hammered this winter. I'm worried about the pressure it's been getting. I wouldn't mention it here, but word is clearly out already. There are a lot of great options to try around Eagan. That's where I do most of my pond fishing.  I live in Brooklyn Park now and have had a tough time finding good fishing in ponds/little lakes up this way. Might have to give the clay hole a try
