Haven't been out there yet with the canoe this year but there are some fish in there. Bass on teh weed edges and the occasional Muskie or pike. If you after the panfish you will have no problem catching them. If it is size your after, don't go there...

This lake sucks because the lake's property owners hate fishermen. They'll jet ski and water ski within casting distance of your boat..... no joke! I've never heard of too many nice fish being caught here either. The access is kind of lame too.

What about Fish then? Or is there another smaller lake close by?

if you're intent on staying in maple grove, you could try eagle. it gets a ton of pressure, but you can usually find a spot to fish on it. it's not too big either. bigger than weaver, but that's not saying much as weaver is just a mere puddle. depends on where you live though, and what you're after.

Doesn't have to be Maple Grove but I would like to stay off of large lakes such as WBL and would like to be around the Champlin, Plymouth, surrounding area. I was thinking about Linwood but that's a bit further than I really wanted to drive.

You dont have to worry about homeowners causing problems for you on Weaver(or any lake for that matter) if you get out early enough in the morning.

Weaver can be a pretty darn good bass lake if you ask me.

I have had some nice success there, but all of it has been in the morning on weekdays before the locals stir up the lake. I had a buddy who fishing there last year get basicly ran off the lake by the locals, they were running their boat around him and would not leave until he finally just gave up.

Thanks for all the input guys. We decided to try Bald Eagle instead. Its got a ton of structure and many humps. We're not getting out until around 8am so hopefully we'll get a couple of hours in before any rec boaters get to it and it looks like there are some bays as well.

I'll post back and let you know how we did.

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.
