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.
