Recent Southwest Metro Reports Here---Bryant Lk---ect.

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any recent reports to add for the southwest metro lakes? I wish that there was a forum created for specific locations around the TC.

I was on Bryant last night and pulled a hand full of 7 to 8 inch crappies and smaller sunnies and perch. Nothing incredible. I was in about 20 FOW and the crappies where suspending at 7.5 feet and again at 10 to 12 feet, with sunfish on the bottom. Nothing could be found in shallower water. The bite was slow and most fish seemed lethargic. However, there was a small cluster of guys out in the middle of the lake. They must have been in 30 or 40 FOW! Anyone know or have any idea what they were doing there?? I'm not one to go mooch in on top of a guys set up.

Crappies would be my guess. Maybe they found the mother lode suspended over the deep hole! Either that or the bottle bass & they figured their baits were safe out there. smile

I live close by Bryant and have seen the group out in the middle, but have yet to venture out that way. I assume you access the lake through the park/boat ramp, are there park hours? Are you required to pay the park daily fee?

Hey Trapper,

I haven't fished the lake before, I might want to go out there tonight and fish a little bit. Thanks for the info and I may try to find that sunken island and set up there for a bit. If you want to join me, I'll be the guy with the Black Tundra and the FT Guide.

When I lived in Bloomington I would fish Byrant lake, most crappies run 7-8 in. and not any bigger. You may get 1 or 2 larger but you can get a bunch.

Best Regards,

Well,

I got out about 2:45 and setup the house and got the holes punched. I decided to try out by the sunken island in about 20 FOW. I actually brought out my RC plane to have a little fun before settling in to fish, but I ended up bending the nose ski and popping a hole in the fuse, so i started fishing early. I started about 3:30 and tried a red wiggler on a Ratso and a crappie minnow on another jig, both kind of pinkish. Nothing. I saw some activity at 18FOW and moved the jigs up but no bites. I tried switching colors and going to both CM's and nothing. Skunked.

Anyone have any other ideas for Bryant? Maybe stay in the northern bay? Anyone that was out there tonight have any luck?

Curtis (aka squirts) Lemme know next time you head out to bryant and we'll meet up. You should fix your plane so I can check that out. I'm a pilot so I think that stuff's pretty cool. Fishing and flying; can't beat it. If your out I drive a white s-10 PU and fish a blue fishtrap Yukon. I might be there with a buddy on Wed.

I thought it was not actually an island but just a huge sunken rock. Try a bit deeper 25-30 FOW, was getting crappie off the bottom. It is true though, not many are to big. Did any of you know they stocked that lake with walleye in 2006 and apparently last year. I wonder where they would be. Any thoughts?

There are some real big pike and ski's in that lake, that's where those fingerling's probably ended up

Really, the muskies and pike ate all my walleyes B.S. has got to stop. I thought we all new better than that already. I guess not. To answer your question I saw a guy catch quite a few 'eyes off the neck down area on the south end of the lake during the open water season.

      We fished Thursday - Saturday. Couldn’t get any marks to bite on the west end so started east. Caught lots of 9-15” eyes on the mud side of the transition. Mostly crawlers for us on Thurs-Fri but bite changed to minnows on Saturday. Our rainbows ran small but had a few big chubs mixed in. Big chubs we’re best. No eyes on small suckers.  A jig and sucker or crawler on 9-14’ rocks got smallies going in several places. Rocky points coming off islands also produced smallies with tubes, deep jerkbaits and ned rigs on east end. Also landed a 45” ski on a crawler harness.

      Hello. Another important factor to consider when looking for an writing service is the amount of work they can do. A company like https://payforwriting.com/pay-for-papers/  offers a wide variety of topics and has over sixteen writers who are experts in the subject matter. The service also offers proofreading and editing services. Prices start at , but they can get expensive quickly if deadlines are tight.

      Hello. The first step is to read reviews written by customers. This way, you can determine if a service delivers on time and does not charge hidden fees. The paperwriter reviews should also state whether or not the company guarantees original work. Some of the most reliable review platforms include Trustpilot and SiteJabber. Moreover, many  writing services publish their customer reviews on their websites, some even in video format.

      Hello. Remember, cheap writing services will not pass a plagiarism scan and lack quality.  When looking for an college papers writers , you can look for online reviews that compare several companies. Those reviews should include both positive and negative feedback from customers. The service you choose should also provide timely delivery and no hidden fees. Additionally, it should guarantee that every paper is original. This way, you can be sure that you are getting a high-quality written by a competent writer.

      Sounds like a fun day Moose. The weather was just about perfect for the days event.

      I also don’t really believe that you can earn online casinos. There you can play, put bets, win and more often lose money. In the casino for Norway, the same rules apply as for the rest of the casino. If you are lucky, you will win. But to earn money, it is unlikely.

      Went duck hunting at my dads house I missed the only duck in range. The we went grouse hunting and we put 6 miles walking in and flushed two grouse and a woodcock.
