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

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!

      Was at Carnilian a few days ago....looked like the front end of a truck went through just in front of the access.
