My inlaws have a cabin on Burrows and we come up twice each summer. Usually catch 5-10 walleyes each stay. Have had best luck pulling spinners with leeches. I fish Lake Minnetonka (west of the Cities) at least twice a week but love fishing Burrows. Anyone fished there lately? Any other comments or insights would be appreciated. Thanks!!!

Dave, I fished Burrows a few times last year. I had my best luck in the north shallow bay. The walleye were on the smaller side and scattered about. I believe I was using a leech on a plain hook. The two humps have never really done much for me. Although I always give it a shot. I haven't marked much there. I always seem to hook a good sized pike when I go there. It has always been a nice quiet lake when I have fished it.

Dave~ I also have a cabin on Burrows and was up over Memorial Weekend. The fishing hasnt been very good at all. Two very small walleyes were caught and thats it. The last few years the fishing has really went downhill.

Thanks Guys!
I've fished everywhere on that Lake with varying success. Last summer we caught a few nicer walleyes trolling the long stretch that connects the 2 bays. I believe it was in the 15 foot deep range. Any other small lakes with a public access that you would recommend for walleye and/or Northern?

Hi Dave,

I've done okay on the eyes there, catching them up to 27" but that was the exception. Also did pretty good on the crappies, all seasons. Nice lake.

Dave, You are just a hop and a skip away from Spider Lake and just a skip away from Ruby Lake. Spider has a great access and Ruby can be a little difficult at times. I have not fished Ruby yet this year so I don't know the condition of the access. Ruby is a very clear lake and is best fished in low light conditions. Best after sundown. hope for some wind or the mosquitos will kill you. Both Spider and Ruby have some great Smallmouth fishing (let em go).
There are a ton of fun small little lakes right in your area. It is a blast to hit a couple of new ones each weekend. With a smaller boat most of them are easily accessible.
If you ever have a lazy summer afternoon when the fish bite is slow go to Trout Lake (just north of Wabana) From Burrows Take the first right after you hit the paved road on 49. There is a public access right in front of the resort. There is no parking but the resort owner is nice and will let you park for a couple 2 or 3 bucks. Trout is a amazingly clear lake. With great sandy beaches. A great place to take the family. It is also the place where to Joyce estate is located. I have never caught much fish there in the summer. But it is a great place to visit.
Good luck and enjoy that great area you are in!!

Thanks Red Bricks. I'll give one or two of these lakes a try and let you know how I do.
