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.

      When we go to Quetico, barbless or mashed down barbs is mandatory.   To tell the truth I haven't noticed that we lose more fish with barbless than barbed.   Not catching muskies though.  Pike, walleye, bass, lake trout.

      Vermilion might be down a little, but not much.  Your lakes might be different.

      Is that a gulp worm?  I am not on Osakis but cant fish with live bait without the bass, sunnies, and perch hammering it instantly.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?
