In the summer, there is a distict weedline that runs around the lake, I'd say 20-30 feet from the shoreline. If you are looking for panfish, I would target where those edges would be in the summer. The edges are in 7-10ft of water.

The word is there are decent crappies, sunfish, walleyes and pike there if you know where to look. The weedline is a great palce to start.

One of my favorite spots is the East side sandbar. Good area to search for walleyes also check out the inside corner of the bar on the NE side. Crappies check out the deeper hole on the EAst side.

I love fishing this lake but you'll have to sort a little to get a stringer-full.

i was one that helped put on the sctc fishing contest. Lots of great prizes and there were lots of northerns, bass and sunnies and perch caught and registered. I also was fishing and i pulled in a 2 pound northern which brought me to 15th place and i won a strikemaster polar vision. i believe a 4 lb bass won the contest dont quote me cuz it could have been a northern also but there were some pretty big bass caught. too bad i couldn't of caught that 6.5 lb bass i released 2 weeks prior!

There are some HUGE bass in that lake. I usually don't target them, but I end up catching them in the spring while fishing crappies. They are one heck of a good time to catch on light tackle.

There are some quality crappies and gills in there. The problem is finding them. One of my many favorite for crappies, and eyes about this time of year. One hint, there weren't any house in the spot the last time I was there and there rarely are any houses there.

I think I know the area your talking about. I was fishing close to it a few weeks ago. Except it was a huge group near by there. It got pretty pathetic alot of people setting up tip ups and not watching them. Setting up houses on top of some the perm. houses out there. We may of had a large group and had a little fun on 4 wheelers but the rest of stuff I saw going on from people outside of our group there I thought was poor sportsmanship. The one guy actually left his tip ups set up and left his house.

      I have a couple Garmins and I like them a lot, especially the new touchscreen.

      So any idea how far along the lakes are to opening up. Headed that way first weekend of May.

      Volk, a community prevention specialist for the state Department of Human Services and also a member of the Lincoln city council, asked to put to rest a rumor that he snagged the fish. He hooked the fish in the mouth, he said, and it wrapped itself in line as it fought. The mouth hook was certified by Game and Fish, Volk said. A snagged fish would not count as a record.
    • eyeguy 54
      where are these videos? Game and fish said not snagged. hmmmm.

      Cube the breast meat, and marinate it in buttermilk overnight, then dredge it in whatever you use to fry fish, and pan fry it until golden brown.  I like to use peanut oil, because you can get it really hot. You only need a half inch or so of oil in the pan, they fry up quickly. Very good, and I have tried it many ways. You could trim out the dark meat, and do it the same way.
    • huntnfish
      Definitely a huge fish. I don’t know if it was snagged or not but there are a couple videos that look like a hook being removed from the back of the fish. Kind of tough to tell for sure from the videos though. If you go to the ND game and fish Facebook page you can find them.

      Warm temperatures and dry conditions mean increased wildfire risk, so the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will restrict open burning in the following counties effective immediately: Anoka, Benton, Chisago, Douglas, Grant, Hennepin, Isanti, Kanabec, Mille Lacs, Morrison, Pine, Pope, Ramsey, Sherburne, Stearns, Stevens, Todd, Traverse, Washington, and Wright.  The state will not issue burning permits for brush or yard waste in these counties until restrictions are lifted. “Escaped debris burns are the number one cause of wildfires, so that’s why we issue these restrictions,” said Casey McCoy, DNR fire prevention supervisor. “They really work—we’ve reduced wildfires by nearly a third since we started spring burning restrictions in 2001.” McCoy encourages residents to use alternatives to burning, such as composting, chipping, or taking brush to a collection site. For information on how to compost yard debris, visit the DNR’s guide to composting yard debris. People who burn debris will be held financially responsible if their fire escapes and burns other property. Burning restrictions will be adjusted, including extension of restrictions to additional counties, as conditions change. For information and daily updates on current fire risk and open burning restrictions, visit the Minnesota DNR website. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Flying a drone can be a lot of fun—but it can be downright dangerous during a wildfire, according to the Department of Natural Resources.  “Most people wouldn’t dream of driving their car in front of a fire engine that’s responding to a fire,” said Casey McCoy, the DNR’s fire prevention supervisor. “Flying your drone during a wildfire is just as reckless: we have to ground our planes until the drone gets out of the way, and that slows down our ability to fight the fire.” This happened last year during a wildfire in Little Falls: DNR pilots had to land firefighting helicopters because a drone was buzzing overhead. According to McCoy, “interfering with fire operations in this way is dangerous for our aircraft, firefighters on the ground, and the general public.” The reason drones pose such a problem is because they fly at roughly the same altitude as wildfire suppression aircraft. Even a small drone can cause a fire-fighting helicopter to crash if the drone makes contact with the aircraft. Flying a drone over a wildfire isn’t just dangerous, it’s illegal: Federal law prohibits interfering with firefighting operations, and that includes flying a drone over a wildfire. To protect firefighting aircraft, temporary flight restrictions may extend over a 5-mile radius of a wildfire. Even if temporary flight restrictions are not in place, people will be penalized if their drone is caught near a wildfire. Be fire wise and fire safe. No photo or video is worth the risk. Drop the drone near all wildfires. For more information about drones and wildfires, log onto the National Interagency Fire Center. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
