Got out here on the lake Saturday. The boat dock is not out yet, so we just launched our little boat off the shore. Lots of wind coming from the south made the water choppy. We fished the south end of the lake in very shallow water, maybe 4 feet. Managed to catch some nice Crappies in the 12 inch range and a few blue gills in the 8-9 inch range. Also caught a few small dink bass.

It's been a while since I've been able to post any fishing. The past few weeks of hot and humid weather has been tough on fishing. This belated post was from last weekend. The heat and humidity has cleared and led way to great fishing!
The algae bloom has passed on Hydes lake and the water is looking a lot more clear. Northern pike are extremely active! We managed to catch a few nice hammer handles on everything from buck tail jigs to cranking Raps.
In the mix were also 12"+ crappies, slab gills, snack sized perch, dinky bass, and chubby bull heads. This is hands down my favorite small lake in the west metro. I will be out on the waters again this weekend....look for my plastic boat!

Trying out a new lake with the wife on Saturday evening. This honey hole is a hidden gem! We managed to pull in many 12" crappies and 9" gills! A few dink bass and pike were present also. We were jigging Northland whistler jigs with Powerbait minnows.
