Recommendations on New Walleye Lakes in Metro

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello all,

I live about an hour south of the twin cities and most of the lakes don't contain too many walleyes. Needless to say haven't caught any and I would prefer better odds of fishing an established lake in the middle-southern parts of the metro.

So if any of you wouldn't mind suggesting some lakes to try I would appreciate it.

I apologize, I live in New Prague which is basically directly south of the metro. The driving distance is not a problem however so if their are really good lakes in the middle of the metro then that would be awesome.

and don't forget the Minn. River too!!!!

 

you have many options south of there is all I'm saying.....  and good luck fishing!!!!

I seen a Vexilar rep at fleet farm. He pointed out lotus lake to me. Very high stocking numbers for walleye. But yet Marion has high stocking numbers for walleye and I’ve never seen one outta there.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, this may be my last weekend on the ice South of Hwy 210 . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
