good size shore fishing needed

2 posts in this topic

I have some nephews and nieces visting that want to go fishing i have a boat but would rather shore fish there is 7 kids counting mine and it would be easier from shore. My parents would be going so it needs to not be a long walk also few weeds and shade. I know now days its hard to find lakes for shore fishing that are not choked with weeds they would be fine with panfish. I live in plymouth and go to minnetonka alot but usually out of the boat. Any lake within 20 miles or so would be fine thanks for any replies in advance.

There is a good amount of shoreline on the NNW shore of Buffalo, not too far west of you, I am not sure how weedy it is this year, or how much shade you could find, but there should be SOME shade. There is a road along that part of the lake with a rocky shorline drop to the lake from the road, nice area to fish at times, plenty of room.

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
