Frustrated

6 posts in this topic

I guess you could say im not a pro fisher but I try. Ive tried fishing hidden falls and caught some small cats and sheepies. Tried a few lakes in the metro but struck out maybe due to the weed growth but fishing from shore can be tough. The most action ive seen this year was at the cr dam and that was carp. I want to try Minnetonka but dont know where to shore fish that area and looking for advise on where to cast off. Anybody know how to get to king point or something like that in tonka where theres a dock to fish? Any help would be appreciated and if you dont want to say public a pm would be cool. Not looking for pity (lol) just lookn. pike would be nice even small ones

Earlier this summer the crappies were great off the docks at the launch in spring park bay on tonka. haven't been out there for a month or so, but its only a longer cast to get to the 10 foot range and a bit beyond. Also, there is a few hundred yards of shoreline worth trying, however, there may be a bit of weed growth to ruin alot of metro shorefishing this time of year.

Kings point is private - well from shore it is. There's a lil park back there with a fishing pier, but its in a bay next to kings pt - shallow and muddy bay. Good in spring though.

From shore I second the Narrows - but it's a busy channel with boats going by, however early AM it'll be all yours especially once the weather turns a lil cooler.

Actually any channel in Tonka can produce its just finding parking that can be difficult. Try Black lake (on tonka)

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
