im just getting my kid into fishing im trying to find a little lake that holds WHATEVER kind of fish in large amounts i really dont care what type of fish as long as we can get him to catch his first fish. if you know whats working let me know. i dont have a boat so somewhere with either a dock or alot of shore access would be great.

There is a pier on Lake Riley in Eden Prairie that has some deep water off of it. I haven't fished it but I watched a couple guys catch sunfish, crappies and two small walleyes the Tuesday after opener. The pier is north of the public access.

I fished in Lake Ann in Chanhassen yesterday and the panfish were all over the place in the shallows. Another place to try is Round Lake by the High School. There are tons of small sunfish in that lake.

I would also recommend Round Lake for taking a kid. There's a pier and a dock that are both fishable. They are located on the east end of the lake by the beach. You will catch some sunnies smile.gif Have fun!

If you posted a month ago, I would recommend Lake Mitchelle. Only thing you might not like is that there's a 10 horse power limit on that lake. Lots of sunnies - good sizes too. Large mouths are plenty - 3, 4, & 5 pounders had been caught and released. Crappies - when the sun is setting, throw out a jig and they'll come after it. Northerns - haven't seen one. Walleyes - didn't know that this lake had them until I hooked a 20" this year while fishing for crappies. Since this lake has a horse power limit on it, it's pretty quiet. Go on a week day and the whole lake is pretty much yours.

      Most likely our last trip up this year unless we go up for crappies but i'm running out of weekends. We had another great trip this weekend the fish are so fat this year more than I remember in the past.  Got my old man out for a good walleye bite he had a blast and caught a ton of fish. One day they just attached the bait as it was coming down they would come up and smash. Next day you put in the bottom and not even see the lure on the vex bring up a tad and they would smack it. Fun and a lot of snow hitting yesterday when we left.

      Agreed!!

      Switch to regular Budweiser and they seem to just jump out of the hole. No, seriously the way I improved my landing success through the ice was to go to small treble hooks. One small one on a 6' leader, a weight and Colorado blade above the leader seems to work for me. If you are on the flag right away, you don't risk gut-hooking them. I also recycle my Power Pro musky line and put it on tip ups. Also, I should add that I always  have a jaw-spreader and 8" forceps for quick and easy hook removal.

      Funny...seems like when the Emerald run slowed down up there 4-5 years ago, the fishing followed suit!
    • anyfishwilldo
      they only ran for a couple days.  They have them on the canadian side but its illegal to transport live bait across the border

      Cliff - much more than the 4-6" they were predicting.  It was a tired drive back to Blaine late Saturday night, but would have been a much tougher drive back Sunday.

      Tough to follow Ricks Gilly Gilly, but might as well get it out of the way.... My best one today, was a grind until prime time, then the bite was lights out until 6pm. I couldn't pull myself away from my hole....

      Green was ok for me I used all kinds of baits. Nothing would bite before it got dark. I caught some on plastics, waxies, and minnows were hot. I was in 27-28 feet. It was nice to sit in the house as I normally do not fish in it.

      Nice fish Paul, persistence usually pays off..... What worked to put those good ones on the ice? Any tips on structure, depth, time of day? And of coarse coordinates,
