When I go walleye fishing in the area, I usually go to Waconia. It is about 30 - 40 miles west of the city. Just get on 394 west and keep going. I have had some luck out there. Not sure about anything in the Forest Lake area. I know Bi Marine has had pretty good luck on bass. Minnetonka too.
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
