I know of shacks in 12 to 24 fow on Lower Prior that are producing meals of sunfish, but you need to pick through them. Nothing worthy of mention on the crappies. They are mixed in but are in the 8" range. Bugs on black/silver seem to be best. Early morning til 9ish has a slight advantage over afternoon on my outings.

Shako,

I was on Spring last weekend for a couple hours. Picked up a few crappies and a couple gills in 20 FOW. No size though - just the usual 7" Spring Lake crappies.....

Any eyes being produced? I heard there was on rock. I guess he could be wrong though.

      Weekly Metro Area, MN fishing report and tips for June 16. Happy Father's Day to all of the Dad's out there! A fun week, but as always, we had to deal with some aspects of weather! Hopefully everyone caught a few fish and it's nice to stumble across some fun patterns...   Metro Area MN Fishing Reports for June 16 - VIDEO - CLICK HERE   Enjoy!

      Growing up in South Dakota I learned to enjoy the fishing I got to do in the Watertown area with great grandpa and the Missouri River and Black Hills fishing with Grandpa. It's a little different than what I see here in Minnesota but the basics are the same. Seems to be more emphasis on fish size than fishery quality or maybe I was just raised different.  Either way it was always about the beauty of nature and learning a valuable skill from 2 knowledgeable individuals. Now I just try to pass those skills on to the next generation and hope they learn how to protect our resources as well as I was taught.

      same here!!! doesn't hurt to have lived close to the horseshoe chain and having a cabin in Itasca county!!!!!!   nuttin better then a meal of fish straight from the lake to the fish cleaning shack to the plate either!!!!!!

      Similar to eyeguy, I fished when I was young with my parents. At some points it was about trying to catch big fish for me, now days it's for relaxing and teaching kids to fish.

      Nice fish Bill!  I'm going to start following you around 😀

      Just curious if your from Canada or the US? When you say 2 man limits of 17 inch fish every day, just wondering which limit, Canadian or US visiting Canada limit. Thanks for the report!

      Parents fished and I started very early in life. I fish because it's fun.

      caught 2-man limits of 17" walleyes every day.  biggest eyes were 26".  trolled cranks and worked jig/lindy rig w/ leeches in 8-12'.  friend's first trip to Rainy and he CPR'd a 40" pike!  he's hooked now!

      Hard to find a lake up the trail not chock-full of invasive smallmouth. Slip bobbers and leeches, and cast towards shoreline rock piles.

      Why do you fish? We all have different goals when we go fishing. Some of us want a meal of fish to eat. Some of us just want to relax. Most of all, we want that "TROPHY" catch. We want something to brag to our friends about, the "Master Angler".
