It's been years since I have fished at Lake Smetana in Eden Prairie MN! I walked out on the dock with some pan fish lures with the hopes of catching the nice size gills I ever so remember in the past. Unfortunately, the gills and pumpkin seed I caught were very small.
The weeds were very pronounce in the water and the scum that floated on top was easy to navigate my jigs through. The scum actually provided somewhat of a shadow or weed line and that was where the little pan fish darted out from.
I walked further down towards the water fall area of the lake. While pitching a drop shot rig with 2 inch Power Bait minnows, I caught a very small pumpkin seed. There were more fish in the water fall area, but I decided to pack it up. Very interesting urban lake to fish!
