welcome to FishingMinnesota TS... great to have you on the site!

Take 35 North and exit on HWY 8.. take that to Olinda Trail(should be a DQ on the right hand side) take a right, go down a little over a mile I think to 295th St. Take a left.. boat landing is about 2 blocks down on your left...

as for where the walleye are? I would drift lindy rigs with a leech around in 10-30 feet of water...I havn't been out there yet, but the landing was pretty vacant on sunday so I assume the bite was not all that good saturday... few were back.

I was there on the opener and got one walleye about 8 inches long. I saw one other boat catch 2 bluegills, other than that no one was catching fish that I saw. I'm sure with more stable weather the fishing will improve.

BTW Man the curly-leaf pondweed was BAD!!! I haven't been on the lake early in the year for quite a while and boy it has changed. No wonder last summer it was pea green with no vegetation.

I was with a group of 3 boats and we boated 2 walleyes, one was 14 the other just a hair over 16, my son tried to horse one in before getting the net and it got off a couple inches above the water. I tried to tell him to wait a second, but, you know us, instant gratification. shocked.gif

I want opinions. On opener, we had been catching sunnies. most were dinks, but, we started catching larger ones... average fish would have been just smaller than 8 inches, we kept 75 sunnies in this size range. I try to do the best I can at selective harvest, now before anyone jumps down my throat, there was 6 guys and we all wanted a meal, sunnies just ended up being on the menu. We were nowhere near our limit. There were none going over 9 inches and there may have been two in the mix at 9. Are these the better sizes to keep? Or what would be a better option?

It was typical metro area lake pannies.. it takes 3 to make one.

There are going to be a lot of opinions on that one... I personally think you were fine keeping what you did as long as none of them went to waste. You didn't keep any monsters, and the lake has a pretty healthy population of gills. I thnk your fine.

I will not waste a fish intentionally (I have had a freezer crap out on me once unfortunately fish was not the only thing lost). the other guys feel the same way.

Great day of fishing for the pannies. I think it is fine to keep that amount when you are not by yourself like you sated and you are going to be eating them. I bet they were tasty. good eatin!

      Went up this morning. Taking the boat out in the morning on the 22 access I wont get out to far but it can be great for cats where the ice is.  lots of dead matter etc. we will see.

      Snow is definitely going down things are looking up! B season should be really good saw 3 strutter Toms this afternoon comeing home from fishing. 
    • IceHawk
      My opinion no. Nest maybe but time will tell.

      Don I'm surprised as how much the river sections are opening up. Checked from the 71 bridge towards Cold Spring and there's actually a bunch of open sections. Noticed the honey hole area, in the rivers mouth entering cedar island is really going quick also. Definitely looking better for a possible ice out on the lakes on the chain. Time will tell

      went out tonight and found between 24 to 28 inches of ice away from the current areas.    The river is now poking into shoe about 100 yards.   Don

      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner
