Ice Fishing in the Twin Cities Metro area

Recommended Posts

Grygla

I'm pretty new to ice fishing in the southern Twins Cities Metro area. And I'm wondering if anyone out there can give me some advice on what lakes to try for some Crappies or Walleyes.

Welcome to FM. Check out the Metro Forum. Around Eagan there's always Crystal Lake in Burnsville- tons of 5-7" crappies. People talk about Fish Lake in Eagan but I'd stay away from there. I drove by it last week and it appeared to have an open spot where the fishing pier usually is.

Prior is always a good bet for crappies and the occasional 'eye.

Hit me up on email and maybe I'll take you to a few places that will remain unnamed on the internet. [email protected]

Got to keep my small local pits off the internet.

Eagan manages aerators in many of its small lakes, was the open water marked with posts?

I've noticed this city does a fantastic job with its parks, especially water quality management!

you can walk around the open water on fish lake. just park in the lot, walk the path, and walk on shore around it. The thirty foot hole is there. Decent crappies too got one 11"

Jordyn- I know most of the lakes in the Burnsville/Eagan area because I've lived in this area all my life. I've fished out of Bayport a few times but not near still water.
