I have to get out and check out the upper Cannon River. The lakes along the river shoud have a good bite going if it's up a foot or two.

You must be reading my mind or vice-versa. I'll never forget that advice you gave me about a year ago.

Glad you got some rain. Most lakes were needing it bad. I would guess that you will get some more.

I've been hitting the inflows and haven't had any luck yet only carp as far as I've seen but I bet the fish will start hitting anytime now

The area lakes could have used the low water for another year or to so the lakes could rejuvinate themselves. I understand peoples complaints with access not being high enough, but the lakes have not even come close to any low water cycle "bottom" yet. With the water clarity issues around Mankato the lakes need signifacant drawdowns to settle mud and regrow weeds that are important to the lakes. If the lakes could go down another 1-3 feet for a year or two it wood knock down the curly leaf pond weed that has a strangle hold on our area lakes. With the pond weed down the other weeds would have a chance to take hold again. For my 2 cents worth. The Lake Washington association is destroying the lake with there every year spraying of the lake. No weeds and the lake is the muddiest I have ever seen it in my life. No weeds to break up the wave action and boat wake action.

You make some excellent points. I like the way you think.

I just hope that the tetonka lake association looks what happened to washington before they keep spray here. I was on washington last week, we had a hard time finding a weed bed of any kind. Someone is not telling all they know about the week killer they are using. mad.gif

I agree ken, since they started spraying on Washington its hard to find weeds like there use to be.

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore
