Hello All,

I am new to the area and wondering what the best lakes are to ice fish in the Maple Grove area. I understand that many people don't want to give up their honey holes, but any advice on some decent panfishing lakes that I can take my boy out to and catch a few crappies. Thanks!

Eagle lake is a good one or medicine lake just south of maple grove in plymouth is also a good lake to fish.

The crappies in lakes around Maple Grove are severely overharvested and it if you can find a fish 10 inches + it is a trophy.

Eagle is full of 4-6 inch crappies.

Medicine is full of 6-8 inch crappies

Weaver has a decent number of 8-9 inch crappies

I agree. As far as panfishing goes on Eagle, you'll find bigger fish in the fish tanks at your local Petco than you will in that lake. Tip-ups for Pike can be fun out there though if you're into that. On the other hand it's great for little kids. I myself would rather drive an extra 20 minutes to better waters.

It's too bad Eagle is that way. When I was in High School, we used to be able to go catch 9 and 10" fish regularly there. Now everyone and their brother goes there and it is frustrating to see the carting off buckets of 6" crappies.

Anyone ever try Rice Lake north of Maple Grove right on 94? I see to always see the same portable out there every time I drive by and nobody else. I would assume there isn't much in there, but not sure if anyone has ever tried it?
