I am planning on coming up to the St. Cloud area maybe this weekend or the next to take my brother-in-law out fishing. I am looking for some advice on some lakes to look at to catch some eyes. He doesn't get out on the ice that much, unless he comes home for weekend which isn't that much either! I know of Koronis, Rice, and of course the little jount up to the Pond. I've been up to the pond a couple of times this year with little success. I am looking for a lake a little closer than that. Any info would be great! Thanks to all that reply!

I have consistently got a few eyes every time out on Little Rock in the afternoon into the early evening. Have also caught a lot of them on Koronis, just none of them have been over 13".

This weekend is looking to be cold and windy for a heads up.

Little Rock, Koronis, and Rice are the lakes nearest to St. Cloud I would recommend trying. If you don't mind driving a little further but want a better shot at getting fish I would try Gull Lake near Brainerd. They have been going pretty good out there.

Thanks for the replies guys!! Now the other thing I am wondering is lake travel? Can I drive on these lakes and if so is pretty easy to get around in a truck due to snow?

You should be fine on pretty much any lake you go. I have hit a number of lakes within the last couple weeks and have been perfectly fine without 4 wheel drive. The roads are pretty well established to most spots on the area lakes. If you wanted to go off and try something remote you might need a 4x4 otherwise I don't think anything more is needed.

Crappies are running small on the rock, but the walleyes have all been nice and all I've caught are still swimming. Haven't made it over to the east side yet, staying closer to the west access. Not a single perch out there this year and last year I would get 20-30 5-8" everytime out there.

Rice is having success off the public access (Southwest) straight out about 200 yards in about 18 feet.

      Have not been here in sometime. Thought this would be a good opportunity to get back on here. Got out for the C season, arriving just before sunrise  and the birds were already on the ground. Started with an aggressive calling sequence "Purr into a loud Yelp" there were birds North and West of my location responding. This guy decided to take a look about 30 minutes later. He got within 5 feet of my blind full strut. Something I have never heard before he started to hiss at the decoy.  Not a great shot at that range but sealed the deal.

      Very nice! I was kicking myself real hard this weekend for forgetting my fish finder at home. I did manage to bring this smallie in, but they were tough to pattern for me and this was the only noteworthy fish of the weekend. Hope the water temps come up and I can get back next weekend!

      Nice boat Raven! I think I saw you out buzzing around in Wakemup this weekend!

      I got out on the Cass Lake chain this weekend with a group of 10.  We found walleyes still hanging out shallow and scattered.   Jigging with shiners or gulp in 4-10 fow got several walleyes in the livewell.  With the heavy wind we also had a good daytime crank bite.  In the evening trolling cranks was productive as well.  Saturday morning I stuck a 43" musky trolling for eyes. Not a great photo but I was fishing by myself and wanted to get it released quickly. Panfish were hard to pin down with them bouncing shallow and then disappearing with each weather change.  With wind gusting to 25+ miles per hour finesse presentations were difficult. Water temps ranged from 53-60 degrees.

      Spent a couple hours on German. Slow fishing, just a couple small sunnies, the boy and I where happy to be out though.  Water temperature ranged from mid 60s to mid 70s. No fresh vegetation and dirty water. Must still be running a bit behind despite the warm weather.

      Got to get the first fish guts on it yesterday!

      Interesting. So the sows are still in shallow? We fished 10-24' the past 3 days and have done well with a lot of 14-18" eyes using Lindy rigs and rainbows.
