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!

Haven't been here for a while! The weeds have falling back and the green slime has come in. Nonetheless, the Pike are still aggressive in this pond. I got cut off 3 times until I landed this 32 inch. He almost inhaled my white curly tail grub. No chunky bluegills today, but I am sure they are around.

I used to work next to Smetana and fished it during my lunch breaks. I only caught blue gills and pike. The pike I caught were fairly small from 12 to 18 inches. The gills were decent 9 inch average. Always a good fight from those guys. Happy fishing

Question to those of you active on this lake. I work near this lake now and saw a few ice fisherman over the winter. Does the lake mostly consist of largemouth, gils, and small pike, or are there some better sized pike available as well?

Still no Gills, but I found a largemouth using a Berkley Power bait 2" minnow with lead jig head. I was fishing straight off the dock.

Had time during lunch so I stopped out to check the pond. The dock is now out on lake Smetana! I was drop shotting a 2" tube looking for bluegills when this little pike nailed it. Big Smile

Smetana should be opening up soon. This little honey hole holds up nice slab size gills that are tall and thick in the back 9"+! Big Smile

The weeds are coming very bad on the dock. Nice warm day, but strong wind gusts from the from the south, 17mph, made it impossible. No luck for me today, but my buddy yesterday says he is still catching tiny pike.
