I've been learning to fish for a long time (does it ever end?). But now I'm on to a new phase -- I finally have my own boat. smile smiley No more depending on dad to decide when to go, where to go, etc. Heck, I still need to learn how to launch, land and operate it...lol. I'm here in Hopkins and will take any advice I can get. We've been hitting Fish Lake and Spring Lake down in Prior Lake. I'll be starting there but will take any suggestions for other metro area lakes to try. Thanks for your time. Patti

Welcome aboard Crickett,
Have you tried Bryant or Bush Lakes? not that their the best fisheries around, but the do have Pan fish, Largemouths, Northerns & Tiger Musky, but no Walleye. The reason for the suggestion is that they are close to you and dont have alot of activity at the boat launch & might be a decent place to pratice launching & landing. be sure to check motor size regulations, Bush is 6 hp max. larger may be attached but not used. but Bryant is larger motors but has a speed limit durring certain times of the day. Bryant is also busier & has a fee, not sure if Bush has a fee. check the Three Rivers Park District website for details, things change. Don't forget to wet a line, there are some big fish, but few. Hope that helps. I don't know how big your boat is. this is a link to the DNR for Local Lake regulations http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/rlp/regulations/boatwater/local_regs.pdf good Luck to ya smile smiley

Hey Crickett,

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

And yes... we can stand another one smile smiley

I like fishing Bald Eagle and Big Marine. Both are pretty good for crappies and you might even get into some walleye too.

Thanks guys...had a day off today..hit fish lake..got skunked..showed up at dad's at 9a but he took so long to get rolling we didn't get on the lake until 1p.
I'm going to look into Bryant Lake. I have a '60 crestliner,'63 johnson 18hp. Still in pretty good shape.
Dad and I mostly fish for crappie - try for walleye but he knows as little as I do about that. He started fishing late in life with no one to teach him. Try to learn wherever I can - drag him to the Northwest SportsShow every year. But no substitute for experience.
Thanks again, Patti

If your looking for a walleye lake that is close to Bryant you might consider Lake Riley in the Chanhassen\Eden Prairie area. (I heard about it from the nice ppl here smile smiley ) some nice crappies in there too I hear. I have not fished this one much myself, just from shore, so maybe someone else here can help more w/ that. good luck

Welcome to the site. As far as I'm concerened the most interesting thing about fishing is learning how to catch fish. Not the actual catching. Find some active fish and then try a bunch of things to see what works and what doesn't. If fish aren't biting well I stick to the basics and fish harder (not change baits). One of the best learning tools, in my opinion, is a good quality high resolution locator. Sure cameras and mapping GPSs are fun and at times required but give me a good locator and I'm happy. Sounds like your fishing some new lakes so what I do in that situation is break the lake into little chunks. Check out an area with the locator and fish the ones that look like they hold fish. Most important have fun while your fishing.
