Has anybody been out to Byllesby lately? If so did you have any luck. I was out there on saturday and caught two little eyes and i was just wondering if everybody was having the same luck to.

What/where is Byllesby? I think I've heard of it, but I'm not sure where.

It's just north of Cannon Falls. There's a big brown sign on 52 that lets you know where to turn. It would be a left turn if you're coming from the south.

Fish On!

Anyone know of any good lake depth maps of Byllesby?

Thanks

Byllesby is a resevoir, the northern most part is max depth about 12ft, the southern in front of the dam about 45 I think. There is a channel in the middle as well. The lakemaster maps have a good map of the thing. My sister lives on the lake and there are often trucks and fisherman out there, especially near the access where they poured rock along the shore and in the water. Fished it opener last spring, only caught a small catfish.

That reservoir holds just about every fresh water specie available in Minnesota.

The old river channel winds around a bit, but the spots "I have heard or on the stepp shorelines at NE corner of the "lake" before it narrows towards the dam.

Get a map and key in on these sharp drops!

I was over there about 25 years ago. There used to be a Boy Scout camp on the lake, I beleave it was up on a hill. Any ways, at that time there were a lot of Pike and Walleyes being cought.

      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)

      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?

      Haven’t fished the river for weeks and came home to high, muddy water so I doubt I will for another week.  I’d focus on shorelines and whatever backwater I could find at this time if I did go.

      It was slow for me Tuesday afternoon and Thursday in Frazer / Smarts Bay. Wednesday was very good in 20-25 feet leeches / crawlers on a Lindy or a jig. Absolutely beautiful weather!

      My wife and I had a good morning on Friday with bottom bouncers, spinners and crawlers in 20-24 ft.  Caught 9, threw back 3 18-19 in, 2 13-14 in.

      I would head over the hill into the back country and fish the streams and lakes. You will have much better success catching fish. Bring bug spray

      Lori has some nice gills and some okay crappies normally. Green has nicer sized crappies and gills. Ann lake has been kicking out some great fish. Check out fishing club.

      Streams won’t have much of anything to offer this time of year. Maybe a couple tiny smolt rainbows. There are all kinds of shorefishing spots in the area though. Stream mouths are always the obvious spots to try. Spoons and spinners.

      How was the trip? I was on the lake Tuesday and the weather was as good as it gets!
