I realized after I posted that you were overdoing it to the point of sarcasm. But then it was out there. Oh well, someday I won't be a complete n00b. laugh

Anyone that has any honey hole won't share them on a public forum because it will be elbows to arseholes the next day... LOL!

But... Check out the hidden falls area in St. Paul. There are some back water (old marinas) that can be productive for crappies and eyes if you catch it at the right times of the year.

El Dorado state park with the lake that crosses under 35 with all those trees and stumps pokeing up out of the water. if that dont say backwaters i dont know what does. Yea theres Walleys in the Mississipi lets go catch some then report back to me where u caught yours and ill do the same. winkgrin

Metroslayer - If anyone says anything on this forum that could be inferred as breaking a law, someone at some point will site the law. It's not a personal attack.

I have heard of people doing well on pannies in the backwaters. I seem to remember a post about it last year. It can be hit or miss, but if you hit them, it's pretty good.

      If you live on the lake from what I have seen and heard they put the boasts ok n when nobody is at the ramp checking. So much for the great inspection, no decontamination after leaving the lake, that's a major issue I see. So far I have not seen any of the inspection crew at other lakes. Nobody on Constance, Buffalo or South ramp of Maple lake.

      Has been pretty slow lately. One night you do decent then the next nothing. Very hit or miss.

      Aren't there some great spots along the Mississippi south of the TC? I'm not familiar with that part of the state but it seems I've heard things.

      Is the night bite going?

      I would surmise the slop bays across from the resort would be good for largies.  Crappies, next bay down from resort to the right of the point with the giant mansion on it.     Smallies, any rocky shoreline or rock pile, for example  Windsock Island and vicinity. Pike, various weedy areas mostly although I have never had much luck deep in the slop.      Maybe some of the folks who go the LOR will chime in.   At least you didn't ask where to catch walleye on the west end. 😊

      Went out Walleye fishing Saturday night and I caught this beauty. Measured 45 1/4" and estimated weight of close to 30#'s. Fought it for over 40 minutes. Caught on 6 pound line with a #4 hook. What an epic battle.

      Going for some largemouth on pike lake near duluth tomorrow if I could get some advice that would be nice. Never fished it before 
    • Fishguy20
      So island was kind of a bust when I went a few weekends ago. It could be the fishermen or could be just bad fishing

      I know all those areas well.  I'm a Parsippany~ish kid myself.  Traffic did suck when the commute was 40 one way- now just 5.5, all backroads. @Wanderer Hey for boat rentals a license isn't needed?  I have my NJ boat lisc, but doubt they'd honor it.... To ALL!  Thanks for all the replies and help here... sooo looking forward to the trip. I will  indeed look closer as the time draws nearer, and omg, I would love to be a boat buddy (we say boat b!tch), and consider this my "ask".. Thanks again fellas! Tight lines!   Mr Mayor
