Go to Fish Lake in Maple Grove and park at the public access. Walk straight out until you find 25'. Drill a hole and the Vex will be lit up like a Christmas Tree. The crappie action will be nonstop. The max size will be about 5".

5"? Thats it? That's tiny. But should provide plenty of fun for the kids including the big kids too if your just looking for a good time.

Look for humps/points/underwater islands that drop in to the main basin of the bay/lake and you'll find crappies. I fished one such place on Minnetonka last night. Hump topped off at 9ft and dropped down to 25ft fairly quick. I drilled some holes starting at 15ft down to 25ft. Marked fish and set up in 20ft and jigged the fish in. Don't assume you need to drop to the bottom. I started jigging about 10ft down and the crappies came cruising in. Seldom went below 15ft and even caught a couple at 5ft. Glow jigs help in the initial attracting. If you don't get any action in 10 minutes or so move to a different hole. Study your lake map and don't be afraid to try spots away from the crowd. I could see over a dozen shacks/portables about a 75 yards away but no one was around me. I had great action and when I quit at 9pm the fish were still biting. I wateched everyone in the community spot leave way before then so I bet I had the better night.

      Lake Osakis is a good lake with a few good resorts.. that can a an option for you...  it has the small mouth bass and sunnies you want...  but it's not way up north as you might want..

      In Aitkin now; getting a slow start this morning.  No problem there, it’s a day bite for the most part.   Yesterday I checked one of those two hit list lakes.  Evening into the dark.  I only picked up 2 perch, 1 gill and had one 30 inch pike to the hole 4 times before it came off when I got more aggressive to turn his head into the hole.  I started in 24 feet and worked up to 15 before connecting with anything.   What a fight though. Using a 28 inch pannie rod, 2 lb test on a 13 Descent, fishing size 16 jig and plastic.  After hooking into it and the first head shakes were done it just sat there.  I couldn’t move it for a while but could feel it finning around.  I thought, what the heck!  Did I just hook a beaver?!

      Beautiful morning on the harbor.  6 inches of ice where I'm at.

      60 years ago at the age of 10, I used to read the fishing ads in Field & Stream about fishing in Minnesota.   I always said I would go one day, but as you know life and things get in the way.   Well, I'm 90% retired now and ready to make the long trip from way down south to go fishing in Minnesota, my lifelong dream.   I always wanted to go to the BWCA, but I'm simply not able now due to health problems. I can't do hiking, portaging, etc anymore.   Here's the deal....  I would love to find a small remote cabin (in Minnesota) on a small lake to stay for a week or more, next spring or summer.    I don't need anything fancy... rustic is the best for me.   I want to fish for smallmouth bass and big bluegills and I will bring my boat along too.   If any of you could recommend a small lake, with a small cabin and good fishing to rent for a week or so, I promise I will repay you somehow.   A guide would be nice for a day, or I'd gladly give one of you a nice tip and take you along in my boat fishing, as many days as you want.   Would you please help make my 60-year dream come true?  PM me if you wish.   Thanks in advance.    PS:  If the fishing is better in a spot that doesn't have cabins, I can find a place to stay elsewhere.  Good fishing is more important that a place to sleep anyway.
