How Do You Fish A Quarry???

5 posts in this topic

I was planning on taking my two boys fishing in quarry park south of Menards in St. Cloud but have never fished in a quarry and quite frankly don't know how to. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. As far as I can tell there isn't much structure and it's just a bunch of deep holes and I'm not sure what to use or how to fish it.

not sure if the trout are biting or not (usually best in early summer) but we always use corn or angleworms suspended on a plain hook below a slip bobber...only need to fish it about 5-10 feet down or so as they are usually suspended or feeding near the surface.

Good luck, and send 'em back if you can (or just take a few for a meal) so others can enjoy it as well.

Thanks for the advice and don't worry I always practice catch and release and I'm trying to teach that habit to my kids also.

Welcome to FM Snapper!

Hopefully you and the kids can get a few to bite. I haven't fished the quarries but know some guys catch some nice trout there at times.

Good Luck!

I agree with Sartell Angler. I have also used the Power Eggs with success. I haven't been out there in a couple years, but I'm sure they are still biting!

Good Luck

      Seen some fox tracks where I was looking for birds yesterday so I might have to head out there after dark.

      Went out yesterday after the wake and visitation with Finn. He flushed two hens and I saw him chasing a rooster but I am not fast enough to keep up. It flushed about a hundred yards out from me. We seen one grouse but it flushed 60 yards in front of Finn and he was only 10 yards infront of me. Then Finn started going crazy so he headed into the cat tails and wow 50 or so mallards flew at me and then 7 big swans. Finn did not look happy that I just watched them. It was a fun little trip.    Anyone else Lise out there chasing birds yet?

      Quick question, we have never come up in the winter, but it's my understanding the ice is usually questionable around Oak Narrows and Timbuktu. Does anyone know what the ice is usually like in Birch Narrows (West Hinsdale) and Smarts Bay (SW area Hinsdale) around the Retreat Lodge Area which is where our island property is.   Thanks for any insight

      As of yesterday most lakes are froze over please watch for areas that geese and swans have kept open. I checked a lake and found about an inch yesterday and I am sure it made some more last night.

      U-Haul in Hermatown will fill a tank and you pay for what they put in.
