Recommendations on New Walleye Lakes in Metro

Recommended Posts

Sev
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.

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.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.
    • gimruis
      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..
