i know most of u will be going fishing this saturday for walleyes but i will be fishing for northerns because in 2 weeks i will be fishing for waleye in canada so i thought i should fish for some pike, and maybe catch a couple of bass with that. i usually dont fish for northerns so i was wondering if you guys knew any lakes aorund the south metro that have alot of northerns in there and wont be packed. good luck at the opener everyone!
T-Bone, Pelican Lake south of Monticello is famous for Pike, big ones too. And there are no eye's in it either. It's a shallow weedy duck lake that happens to be a pike factory. In the fall you can catch 10lb'ers like cord wood. It's a blast, I haven't been on the lake in years, but I can't imagine that things have changed much.
Have you tried pepin for northern, some huge ones in there. Also good walleye action and some bass on the right plastics. Otherwise i got some great bass lakes in the south metro if your interested in those.
If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
