Is anyone catching anything on Lake Benton? If so, what general area?

Also, is anyone catching perch, sunnies or crappies on any area lakes during the afternoon?

I went out this last tuesday---Caught two eyes about 6 inches right away then one eye little over twenty inches.. But if you go out be prepared its a pain getting on and off the lake. I got stuck three times. twice on the lake and then again trying to get off at norwegian creek landing. There is a big ice Heav at the entrance of the boat landing... Any way caught the eyes on a fly jig with a dark plastic tail, tipped with a wax worm.

Just a quick tip on where to go---- If you do manage to get on to the lake at norwegian go straight across the lake to the other side. There is a nine foot hole its not very big but if you find that I've seen a lot of perch and eyes down there using my Vexilar and Aqua View.

Good Luck----- another thing wax worms and small dark lures seem to work the best

      Definately made by JB lures but I have not seen them in a long time.  Check on their website and if they have a contact link send them a picture and see if they can help you out.

      I’m surprised no one has said Lake Minnetonka yet. Ron Schara’s annual crappie contest always yields some enormous crappies in early May. Last year the winner was a 16.5 incher.

      Anyone else tired of the cold yet because I sure am!!!  Friday night got down to the cabin l went out and got holes drilled and heater running. Fished an hour between 9 and 10 we landed 3 or 4 crappies, they were either 8 inches or 13 inches. Fished Saturday morning didn't catch a thing. Moved house and started fishing for evening bite and landed about a dozen crappies and we found them either small or huge no middle ground. Sunday morning no fish. Sunday evening landed 8 and they were 10 inches or over 13 again. During then later hours ended up a 21 inch eye on a rattle reel.    Crappies wanted glow jigs in 4 mm or 3 mm tipped with soft plastics with wax worms. Few did end up taking large crappie minnows. Had mixed bag of minnows and shiners, rainbows and fat heads never got bit. Weird.      Hearing good reports of panfish being very active especially if you stay mobile. Guys fishing shallow are finding fish in the weeds.  Also hearing the elusive winter bass are starting to put the feed bags on. They are cruising the edges of weeds. Haven't heard any reports of walleye even with the full moon we just had.      Attached are two different fish from the weekend put back into the lakes.
