KR-7 Question???

3 posts in this topic

What kinds of fish are in this body of water?? I took my son out there last night and he caught a TON of small fish, anything with size in here? Is there a better place to fish than the shoreline right when you come over the hill? Thanks!!

Probably won't find much for size in this specific pond. And for spots to fish, you also found pretty much the only spot to fish, the vast majority of this piece of water is like 4 feet or less except close to the dike where you were fishing. There are some decent perch, but they are getting fewer and farther between than they have in past times. I think that too many people kept too many for it to maintain itself, hopefully those who fish this body of water will try to remember that those nice bigger fish are also the future for the kids!

Like crazyice said, the water next to the dike is probably your best bet for fish since that is the deeper portion of the lake.

There are perch, bluegills, green sunfish, and black crappies (some white crappies too I think) in there. The fish tend to run small since there are no predatory fish present (at least that I know of).

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
