Wow!

(what is the camera you are using?  That is amazing clarity!  (Is it still that clear in deeper water/thicker ice?))

The water clarity is one of the challenges of getting those eyes to bite, especially in the somewhat shallow water.

Keep at em Bryan, nice video.

@DonkeyHodey Aqua Vu Revolution 5.0 Pro.  The camera does have great clarity but its more the lake then the camera that makes it clear. Mille lacs is a great lake for camera, very clear. And yes deeper you go usually grainier it will get but this lake I can see 20-30 ft just fine.

@Sculpin Thanks! Yes, water is so clear which is great for camera but makes tough bite. Crazy every time I drop the camera down its just zebra mussels. Always like what the heck do they feed on,  looks like barren waste land.  Sad.

The clear water is a result of improved septic systems around the lake and obviously the explosion of zebra mussels that have filtered the water.  Not good for walleye population, but obviously better for using an underwater camera.  The increased water clarity has played a big role as to why the smallmouth bass and pike populations have increased too.

      Yah, sometimes it’s hard to get info about city fishing when most of us try to get AWAY from the city! 😄   I read your post a few days ago and only thought of the river, Minnehaha Creek (both already mentioned) or the City Chain of Lakes. I used to trailer my bass boat to Calhoun or Bde Maka Ska and trolling motor the whole lake and sometimes into Lake of the Isles.  We always picked up nice bass on the weed lines and an occasional muskie.  My best bass was a 6-4 but we always caught at least one 5 lbs along with multiple 3’s and 4’s.  I never spent enough time on Harriet to figure it out.   The River can be fished in sections.  Just pick one.  Some of the harbor and island areas were always good for white bass and smallies.  Look for rip rap.  My favorite bait was a small bomber model A with clear sides and chrome middle to emulate the shad.  Occasionally I’d tie into some channel cats or even a stout flathead.

      Although I appreciate the replies and any effort because I know it's good faith, they're not of much use. As originally posted, this is really looking to withIN Minneapolis / St Paul.
