How many lakes?

Recommended Posts

united jigsticker

It's relatively fresh in the fishing season yet.

I want to get an idea of how many different lakes we have all hit already this season, and perhaps even what your specie of target and success might have been.

So far I have hit 6 lakes this year, all for Crappies. I have gotten Crappies on 4 out of 6 and am pretty happy about that.

Chisago-Crappies & bluegills
Deer Lake WI-Bass
Bone lake WI-bass
Wood lake WI-bass

So I am at 6 as well.. I am only counting open water... I hit quite a few more since the new year on ice...once bass season starts my numbers will grow by quite a bit.

Only two for me. A highly succsessful crappie outing and a pretty good walleye outing. Although two is a very small number for me at this point in the year I plan to rectify that when my son's get out of school for the summer.

Red and Minnewaska was fantastic for crappies! Reno was doing ok last weekend for "Eyes". Pretty slow as of now for the rest of the lakes I've tried so far this year.

Only three bodies of water for me so far. That's gonna grow next week if the weather holds out.

Long Lake for Northerns (walleye's are getting caught there as well).

Crooked Lake for panfish too early in the year. Haven't hit it since opener.

Mississippi River @ Coon Rapids Dam for Carp.

My next target is Ham Lake for panfish and northerns.

      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
