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

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
