Ok i am making my first walleye trip may 24 a monday so i dont have to deal with weekend traffic. i am new to the area but am ready to fish. I would like to take my boat to a nice lake where i can jig for some eyes and maybe pull some cranks on leadcore. I was wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction of a lake to fish. An hour drive is fine by me. these are the counties that i have maps of the lakes for, carver, hennepin, dakota, scott, mcleod, wright. any advice would be greatly appreciated. I was thinking of maybe trying spring lake in scott county. any word on the eyes there. thanks everyone and goodluck during the opener.

Sounds like P2, P3, or P4 of the Mighty Mississippi is the place you need to go............

If you want walleyes that are both quality and quantity, that is the place to go..............................................................................................................................................................................

Let 'em go so they can grow!!!

Is it not safe to eat anyfish from the miss? Why do they not post some sort of toxic fish sign or something? Why does the dnr allow fishing on the Miss? Why am I not glowing in the dark from eating fish from the Miss yet? Maybe they are okay to eat.......

the people that think you can't or shouldn't eat fish from the mississippi should get the fish consumption booklet from the dnr and read it. they would be supprised to find that some of the lakes they fish are listed as one meal a month where as the mississippi down by redwing is listed as one meal a week.i've had a lot of people tell me they wouldn't eat a fish from the mississippi and when i ask them what lake they fish and look it up they are supprised when the lake they fish is worse then the mississippi.

Matix 10.. if your looking for an opener spot without the crowds .. the inner minneapolis lakes all can offer some decent fishing but are restricted to trolling motors(electric).

There are so many good walleye lakes within an hour of the cities .. I wouldnt know where to start. A wiser thing to do might be to check with various area bait shops after the opener and find out where people have been getting good results(current reports)...

You can take fish out of most any water safely. The things to pay attention to are that woman of child bearing years should not to fish too often and make sure you cut out the belly lining tissues. That tissue is what holds a lot of the pcb's and such. If you clean them well you should have no problems.

Yep those fish are very very bad for you! Stay away from the rivers, who knows what you can get from just touching the water BEWARE! Be afraid, BE VERY AFRAID! But if you see me down there don't worry, I will just be down there monitering things like Big G said!

Big-g and Rainman, What time are you guys serving the shore lunch on the river. I know we can't eat the fish from the river but i guess someone has become the taste testers.
lol

remember to plug your nose.

      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! 
    • delcecchi
      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.
