Shorefishing

6 posts in this topic

Thinking about going out tomorrow shorefishing (no money for a boat), wonder if anyones got tips. Panfishing would be fun, not much luck this season. Any tips greatly appreciated.

Welcome to Fishing Minnesota GoodDoctor! Try off the grade on Lake Okabena in Worthington for crappies, alot of small ones but you may catch a couple keepers. There are several public docks and piers to fish off of on Lake Okabena. Lake Shetek, the Currie Dam, and Lake Sarah, and Bloody Lake are also good bets for crappies or perch.

We tried the currie dam with little luck. Small crappies and channel cats. Shetek was a skunk. Haven't tried Sarah or Bloody.

Just not a good time of the year to be shore fishing. Things will get a lot better come late September into November.

GoodDoctor, welcome to FM!!!

Times are tough right now for crappies in SW MN. The bridge between Bloody and Shetek is a good spot. The dykes on Shetek are nice. I've also caught nice crappies on Bloody right off the dock at the boat landing.

Good luck to ya.

      I'm hoping the snow they are forecasting shows up. Because then it's on for sure.    Put new glass on the light weight .223 so I don't have to carry the heavy target weight gun around. Just not practical where I hunt to have a 300yard gun. A 150yard gun will do just fine.    When you cary a shotgun and a rifle on almost every stand a few extra pounds can add up in a hurry.    Good luck tonight moose

      Twin is pretty deep. One of the last to freeze over in most years.    I wasnt home yesterday evening to see if any more kids went through the ice.    I will did the spud out and see how thick  it is by shore tomorrow.

      We wait until the snowmobile club stakes the trail before going through the narrows.
