There are plenty..what part of the metro are you the most interested in? White Bear has a good population of both Skies and Pike of decent size...some really big skies. Obvioulsy Minnetonka..but there are some worthy smaller bodies of water if you do some research...check a good water rec map, provided by the DNR...its a really good source to find some nice sleeper lakes. good Luck.

The list is endless. I am partial to the West Metro becuase that is where I live - lakes like Harriett, Calhoun,Cedar, Hyland, Bush, Riley, Lake Ann (Chanhassen), Steiger........

Heres a few if any are near you...

Independence (Pike + Skies - BIG) west of cities

Minnetonka of course

Rebecca(Pure Strain Muskies only + 48" minimum - No gas motors - Protected Lake - Be carefull with the skies here they are precious to the DNR) near rockford

Long Lake in Orono/Long Lake (has big Northerns)

Lake Sarah + Lake Whaletail + Lake Waverly = decent Northern

Again let us know where you live and we can name closer lakes to your home.

Muskieboy, Highland used to have 15-20 lb muskies in that tiny aerated lake!! I'm not sure if there were many but I personally have caught two out of that "pond". I'd like to go back someday....
P.S. I did it on one of their canoe rentals!! NO BS!!

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      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.
