Hey there fishing friends! I just moved to Edina from Alaska. I have a permanent ice house that I would like to put out for the winter. I am not sure of a good lake in the TC area. Do any of you have any good ideas where I can catch the best fish?
This is a great website and I look forward to using it!

ice_princess,
Welcome to the site, we hope you stick around a while. To answer you question, I haven't fished through the ice on too many Twin City lakes, but from my experience on Lake Minnetonka, is it can be really hit and miss. But I have to say way more miss than hit. If I had a good place I would let you know, but I don't. I'm sure someone here should be able to help you out.

Hey ice_princess,

Welcome to My Fishing Pals. Glad to have you aboard!

Here ya go... and I hope it helps!

BALD EAGLE LAKE
A scoop of fatheads, a jigging spoon or Jigging Rapala is really all you need to fish on Bald Eagle Lake in Ramsey County.

LAKE OWASSO
Some massive walleyes from Lake Owasso in Ramsey County with some regularity -- take along a camera for those monster walleyes and release them.

ST. CROIX RIVER
Any species is possible, including catfish, muskies, smallmouths -- and every kind of rough fish imaginable.

LAKE PHALEN
Clear and deep, the lake is jammed with walleyes. Phalen is just as much a sleeper in the wintertime as it is in the summer.

SPRING LAKE
Walleyes are stocked by the DNR every other year, and a very strong 1999 year-class is now reaching respectable sizes.

PRIOR LAKE
Good for walleyes and "excellent" for crappies.

LAKE HARRIET
Lake Harriet is one of those inner-city metro lakes that see very little pressure in the summer and winter, even though it has been a well-known quality fishery for several decades. However, more and more portable fish houses seem to be set up on the western shoreline each winter.

LAKE MINNETONKA
The recreational nature of Lake Minnetonka tends to last well into the winter, but anglers in the know don't let that faze them.

LAKE WACONIA
This is one of those lakes mentioned by everybody who fishes the west-metro area.
