There are no docks in at all at the lake accesses. The fishing seemed pretty good out there yesterday. I was the MC at the crappie event yesterday and I can tell you that is the most bags of nice fish that we have ever had during this event. Thanks to you guys for joining us yesterday!!!!

My daughters (4 and 5) were out with me during the tournament. They had a good time even in the rain. We caught a lot of fish, but we were focusing mostly on the sunnies. I tried fishing a little, but I mainly had to focus on the kids. We caught over 100 sunnies and 6 crappies (3 of which were tiny). Kids sure had a ball catching the sunnies though.

The grab bags for the kids had some great stuff in them. Someone put in a lot of time and effort putting that thing together.

Very well run and fun for all.

Thanks.

Thanks for the praises Wastewater! We do put a lot of effort into this get together and every year it gets bigger and better..it is just fun to see all the kids. We had over 100 kids this year....I had put together 100 grab bags and they were all handed out, I had to give the last few to sign up hats instead. We will be back again next year!!!

Went out to Prior yesterday for some shore fishing for the first time this year. But started out fishing on the dock off of Eagle Creek Dr. Using a green curltail under a float about 3.5'. From the center of the dock we would just cat straight out as far as possible and slowly reel back. Out of the four of us we probably caught about 40 crappies, most were small but we did end up keeping about 15 between 9.5"-11". Still it was a good day to be out and the fishing was good. There is a good amount of people down there shore fishing, but they mainly stick to the channel mouth.

Good luck

WWG, email me I'll give you a buzz if I'm around your area.

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..

      Good fishing in the Blue Earth river too. Also, a short drive to Rapidan can be productive.

      Welcome to the site @eg_gophers2124 I have never even seen the lake but these screen shots might help. Navionics Judging by the Lake Finder report, it’s a super clear lake; 17-20 foot clarity but with plenty of weeds. A couple shots of the weed report. Starting from scratch, I would head to the southwest area.  The southern basin has better looking structure too. You might do well simply working edges of the emergent weeds with spinnerbaits in low light and weedless frogs or spoons up in the weeds when it gets to be mid day.  Crawler under a slip bobber on the weed edges could do well also. It’s purely guessing on my part.  Hopefully someone with experience on the lake will chime in. Good luck!

      walked that creek to the river many years!!!  again home area!!!!

      Bring your spinning rod and fish for walleyes or white bass at the confluence. Wherever the river is pounding the shoreline fish the current breaks for big flatties. Heavy fiberglass rod with a sturdy baitcaster and 50 lb power pro line will be effective. Fish the head of snags for channels. Setup just like a Lindy rig for them with 1 oz to 5 oz no roll sinker and a big live bait like a 7" bullhead or even larger sucker for flatties. Use cut strips of bait off a large sucker or something similar for channels. Frogs can be good too. Have fun.

      Thank you Vermilliongold. This took care of the problem. 
    • eg_gophers2124
      Yes it is open. It is $7.00 this year. It is a nice access and I use it every time instead of one of the public accesses. It is on Hwy 24 & county rd 39. It is a little old lady that owns it and collects the money. There is a bucket and notepad to write your plate number on if she isn't home.

      We have rented a cabin on Sylvan Lake between Pillager and Brainerd for the family this weekend. My 13 year old really would like to find some bass and pike. I have never fished the lake and don't fish for bass or pike often, does anyone have a fishing report and tips of what depth/lures to use? We do have a boat to get around the lake.  TIA
