Steiger

Hi Folks- I have a co-worker who works w/ juveniles who is looking for a decent shore spot for 4-6 young kids to shore fish. Wondering if Steiger-Parley-Wasserman have a public fishing pier or a decent spot from shore to fish? They will be going out tomorrow early (7/25)- so asap response would be much appreciated.. Thanks! 8-Ball.

Not asking for honey holes or GPS waypoints here, just if there are shore fishing spots. Anybody...

I believe panfish are possible off the dock at Steiger. Also consider two piers on Lake Minnewashta in Chanhassen.

One pier is in the park. Panfish/bass/pike would be possible. The second pier is in the southwest corner of the main bay; a small park area. Same species would be possible there. Both areas have some space near the piers for wading, too.

DB- Is the dock at Steiger a public pier or just a public access dock for launching?

Unless things have changed there is no dock for launching. The pier is designed for fishing and is a little bit away from the launch area.

Bobber/suckerminnow will give you a shot at pike and bass and they can get pretty big in this lake although all gamefish are still catch n release.

There is a fishing pier and a dock for launching at Steiger. My main concern at Steiger would be that the pier is often crowded so if you come at the wrong time you will have no place to fish.

Thanks for the info guys-going to steer my buddy and his clients out there hopefully tomorrow. Would it be crowded out there by, say, 9 a.m.?

It shoudn't be, the only thing is one family can almost take over the pier.

BB and Doon- Thanks for the info-bud went out to Steiger w/ his clients and they had a ball. Some pannies, couple nice bass and some slimers mixed in for fun. He said the looks on the kids faces and how excited they were was priceless. They plan to go again soon! P.S. All fish released, of course..

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man met me on the lake today and I showed him I am a skilled angler! lol we had a great fish fry! My old man only added one crappie and 5 gills to the bunch

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
