Got to go play on the lake this morning(Chisago Lakes area). Seemed like plenty of people had the same idea. Sun was bright, little wind, and about 11 degrees...

Many of the local spots were pretty busy, I went semi near an area I usually know holds fish and then pulled back off that area to a 10' deep weed flat about 200 yards away from the city. To my delight, the pressure over the main area seemed to have moved the fish into the shelter of the weed flat. I was able to sight fish them in 10' of water and kept pretty busy.

This report is more to let you know. If you see a big area of houses, pull back, find some weeds, and more than likely, fish as well.

Ya getting out of the crowd seems to be the ticket here lately. I can honostly say I havent even had a house within a 100 yards of me this year. The fishing has been pretty good. I guess it pays to find your own spot.

I can't stand fishing in a crowd. And, it really does pay to keep off the beaten path. And, if you look closely, there is words of wisdom in brother Dittrich's post. Find a secondary piece of structure, a good alternative, a second home, etc. in close proximity to the original home. Just getting out of the crowd isn't always the magic cure. You need to find a reason for the fish to relocate.

Right on,did the same thing on Rush yesterday and along with patience,skill and a little bit of luck me and my buddy iced some nice panfish.Believe me that the pressured spots did hold some fish[i tried the 'community' holes first]But after looking at a lake map,finding decent structure 100-200 yards away from the 'group' we put ourselves on a decent bite,and the fish acted much more willing to bite.Now we have a spot for the next trip [GPS locked in] that should produce.

A few of my friends and I fished Green last Saturday a few hundred yards from one of the cities out there and hammered the fish. Even managed a few 10+ crappie smile All but 4 fish were C&R. My friends needed a form on payment for their sitter grin

Funny thing is, we set up around 1 pm and had no one around us. By 4 you could have called my area the suburb of the city. I was amazed at the number of houses that popped up around us!
