matix10,

A buddy used to live on that lake, I used to fish it quite often. I would doubt there are in there right now, but I don't think there's a public access except by water. Under normat water levels the lake is a shallow bay at best so right now I'm shock it's not just muck.

But if you tell us how you do

There is a shore fishing area in a park but I couldn't tell you how to get there. I tried it once for crappies last year with no luck. Haven't tried yet this year. I have caught tons of small sunnies and small bass by the dam. There are always people fishing there. Again I couldn't tell you how to get there. I just know by sight.

I used to fish from shore at this lake with my father as a youth. There used to be a dock or you could fish the little bay or the stream area that goes into Tonka. The last time I was there would be about 10 years ago and I had great success on the beach shore by the little fence that goes out into the lake. Got some slab 12" crappies, some 3lb bass, walleyem, and a dogfish....My Dad usually goes there once or twice a year in the spring as the crappies do migrate to libbs for a few weeks. I would be interested to hear reports.

I grew up in the area and fished libbs quite often a few years back. You can get there from lakeshore blvd, off Minnetoka blvd, a few miles west of the I494/Mtka Blvd. intersection. Follow lakeshore as it winds around a bit and look for a right turn down to the park/beach. The beach is a great place for bass, in season. I did well with a texas rig, dark plastic worm. SOmetimes the area has a lot of anglers, so I would thro my bike in the truck and if it got crowded I would bike back out and around to the other side of the 'channel' by the beach.

At the dam, as a kid, I would take some fruit - oranges worked the best - and lay it out on the grass while I got started. Within a few minutes, the bees found the fruit...I would pinch them from the back and put them on the hook and whammo, crappie, crappie, crappie...have no idea if this still works...good luck!

      Toddrun, You are correct. It seems as if it’s still larvea down there in big bay. Have seen very few , if any mayflies in the air.

      Nice fish Reid, We saw lots of clouds coming out of the mud also, but didn't know what was hatching.  Did see lots of dragonfly's, but not much for fishflies or mayflies in the air.  We didn't have any big fish luck for found keeper fish in the first rock edges around the mud. A guy in our resort claimed he caught a 32" Walleye, but we didn't see any pic's, so not verified, although had several witnesses that confirmed it.  Would have been nice to see it though.

      Bass is my favorite fish to eat.    I always keep them.   If anyone told me not to I would tell them to go to [email protected]#$.    I always eat everything I catch. Catch and release is a choice not a law.   As long as people eat what they catch I have no problem with what ever they catch.   Those who waste fish I have a problem with or those who catch and release too much and end up killing fish I even have a bigger problem with.   Don

      The OP specifically requested advice on how to best address what he personally considers an issue; respectfully. And yes, I do agree, and therefore respect his request enough to answer it; respectfully. I’ve personally dealt with the same conflict of interest in the past and feel that I understand the emotions on both sides enough to offer qualified advice that is more practical and useful than just saying mind your own darn business.

      Hit BSL on Friday to tryand find those slabs again... They were right in the same area as the last time I was out, but could not get one to bite to save my life... They were taunting me jumping all around me... I got some walleyes, nothing over 14" though... The bugs were horrible on the north side, so bad they drove me to the south side haha.

      If someone is legal keeping 15"+ bass, it's none of your business whether they keep 15"+ fish or not. Just walk away and leave it alone.  If you want to change the regulations, try doing it in the proper manner instead of a confrontation at the boat ramp.  I don't know how others would react, but if you approached me, it certainly wouldn't be positive experience.

      so what do have against harpooners?????  the Indians did it before us????????????   
    • Reid Saarela
      28.5, but the fattest walleye we’ve seen. My dad and I both agreed it was a bigger fish than my 30 last summer. Wish we would have weighed it but I would rather have the fish swim off healthy!

      I don't confront people on the water about what they do.  Expressing an opinion in general is fine.  Getting up in people's face is different, as I hope you agree.

      That's awesome Don. Very creative and looks like fun.
