COON LAKE ONLY ABOUT 20 MINUTES AWAY . NOT SURE HOW OLD YOUR KIDS ARE BUT TIP UP FISHING IS VERY PRODUCTIVE AND SHOULD KEEP THEM BUSY. OR CROOKED LAKE ONLY ABOUT 5-10 MIN AWAY FROM ANOKA. OR IF YOUR KIDS ARE REALLY YOUNG ROUND LAKE IN COON RAPIDS/ANDOVER HAS TONS OF SUNFISH IN IT JUST GO OUT TO MIDDLE YOU WILL FIND THEM. GOOD LUCK AND WELCOME TO THE AREA.

You could try peltier or centerville. I fish peltier a lot and there are tons of crappies in there some of decent size and some nice sunfish also.

Hope this helps

I'm also new to Andover and got out for the first time last weekend. Crooked lake is 5 mins. away and is easy to get on and small enough to fish the entire lake. It produced consistent small gils (fun for kids) and 1 nice largemouth. I also fished Coon 10 mins. away, which is a MUCH larger lake and produced, once again, small gils and an 18 inch snake. Ice is wierd with a good 7" and slush/snow on top. Coon seems to be a little more crowded, but was worth the drive.

I used the public boat launch off of Bunker Lake Blvd. on the North end and walked directly South; no problems. There is also a park on the East side off of Crooked Lake Blvd. where you can park and drag onto the South end of the lake. I walked, no atv.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
