Harddrives Pond

11 posts in this topic

Had a great day canoing from St. Cloud to Clearwater yesterday. Caught many smallies along with a few cats and walleyes. Never got feet wet the entire trip. Was suprised with the number of people on the river. Here's the question. Who has info about the Harddives pond just after the golf course. I heard it was closed off from the Miss. many years ago and had an old timer telling me about the fish that used to be in there. We just walked up the bank to it and saw smallies and sunfish swimming. The water was nice and clear but didn't go in cause I'm guessing you're not supposed to. Anyone ever fished it, you can e-mail me below if you'd rather not post.

35 feet for center of the road, or water accessable make its legal to fish, other then that. ASking people who live on the pond its by far the best thing to do.

As I recall there is a chain-link fence around the property you are talking about. I also believe there are No-Tresspassing signs. And I know for a fact, not even long time employees with Hardrives, even think about fishing there. Another forbidden fruit.

I think what you might want to think about is, this is a piece of property that is OWNED by Harddrives, and that they are trying to run a business there. I hope that we could just respect the company for providing us with good roads to drive on and not expect them to have to worry about who is driving in and out of their property.

Jeez I didn't realize Harddrives was a non profit org... apperently they just provide us with these roads to drive on? What do the thousands I pay in propert taxes go to then?

I don't think anybody is asking to drive on the property. The guy was wondering if anybody knew anything about fishing it. No tresspass signs kinda answers that question.

      I am planning on kayaking and fishing the Cannon River this season--between Cannon Falls and Hwy 61. I just want to know if the current is generally swift or lazy, i.e., can I paddle BACK to my entrance spot or do you  need to drift downstream and do the two vehicle thing. I understand it may depend on how low or high the river is at any given time, but in general, when things are 'normal', can you paddle back with little difficulty?

      I'll keep it short and simple. The causes of boom and bust on Mille Lacs.    1. Improperly managed slot limits. Too many large fish are allowed in the lake.  2. Netting during spawn. Poor spawning success.    The recent years of high catch rates rates indicate a good 2013 year class but most importantly it is a red flashing light for anyone paying attention. High catch rates are a result of good population AND low or decreasing forage. I put AND in caps because fish won't bite like they have  when they're not hungry.    Cut down that year class class before it's too late. I give it 2 more summers before another crash is inevitable.    Round and round we go, where it stops, nobody knows.

      After using most of the brands you've mentioned, I absolutely love Lunkerhunt frogs...real lifelike, and don't seem to fill up with water as much as the others. They also hold up really well--caught some pike and bowfin without them getting destroyed. I have been using the "Croaker" color exclusively, but definitely picking up some other patterns. They also make a popper frog which is great if you want to make a little more noise.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.

      Very high expectations. Especially that splake...36 inches would be 2.5 inches longer than what the state record is.
