Lake Phalen, south east shore. Because that side has the most vegitation, and that side is mostly fenced off. I took a canoe out on that lake looking for large mouths and noticed that the south east shore where it's mostly fenced off has tons of sunnies and a lot of them are pretty big. But you just gotta respect the fence.

I would have to say Josephine in Roseville. The microscopic size of the sunnies in that lake never ceases to amaze me. A close runner up would have to be Snail lake a few miles away. I ice fished there a few times last winter...I would mark a 10 foot high band of red on the Vex and catch 50 cent piece size sunnies one after another. Whats up with these NE metro lakes?

I iced fished the little pond rightside of of East highway 36, close to Fleet Farm, across the highway from Silver lake I think, this winter and man that little pond was deep with little sunnies, perches, and crappies. My Marcum was lit up bottom to almost the top. At first I used bigger jigs and got bites like crazy, but never could get them. Then I tried micro jigs and I caught little ones all day long. I even found a little hole in that pond that went to 18 ft.

I took my kids fishing at Loch Ness park in Blaine a few weeks ago. I was impressed by how small the sunfish were. It was hard to find hooks small enough to catch them, but we did and the kids were happy.

Also lots of small sunfish in Sucker Creek by 96 and Rice St.

Lake Phalen, yeah, you can get a boat in there, but you can only use an electric motor. No gas motors allowed. I talked to a park ranger and he said the fence is there to protect the wild plant that was planted there a few years ago. A decade ago, the fence was not there. I would recommend a canoe for this lake. There's a boat launch on north-west end of the lake. The boat rental is on the west side of the lake.

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Great video, thanks for sharing, Mitch😉

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs
    • Rick
      Nice outing and very nice pics.

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      Thanks for checking.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't follow things closely, so I just found out about this last night. The Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade is hosting a pig roast fundraiser on Saturday from 4-7pm to support its operations. There are live and silent auctions along with stuff for the kids. Check it out:   http://www.lakevermilionfirebrigade.com/a-squealin-good-time-for-all-ages/ We are going to go.
