My vote goes to Calhoun and Harriet. Both of these lakes see little pressure and have excellent populations of fish. If you can figure out how to launch and park you will have the lake pretty much to yourself.

I'm glad to see that my favs are not listed, and I won't list them. The bass lakes I fish are very small and they are crowded enough so I'll keep them to myself.

Have a good one!

basser, when do you consider "early spring" on Lake Minnetonka? Just wondering.

So many good ones, the best luck I had was on

1) North and South center

2) Green -6# out of there

3) Weaver - 2 to 4#r's all day long

4) Minnetonka(in the early spring or late fall-when the traffic is down)

5)Big Marine(love that clear water fishing)

I will be glad to give bass lakes away. For a big sleeper bass lake waconia is my choice. I have had bass ruin my muskie bucktails on this lake. Last time I was there in sept I cought a 23 incher on a blue n silver bucktail. It had the whole thing inhaled and bent it! The monster was released.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"
