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

      My buddy has the 5 w/GPS. When you combine it with a lakemap chip it's a really sweet set-up for ice fishing as you can pinpoint spots on lakes and mark your location for the next time you're out.  I don't know anything about the sonar vs. flasher issue or if there is a slight delay. All I know is I want one.   Also, there are down imaging and side imaging versions available, and ones with and without GPS. Be sure you take that into consideration when you're shopping. I've gotten excited about some pretty good deals I've seen on the Helix 5, only to realize it doesn't have GPS. If you're going to use your for ice fishing I think you would want the GPS version.

      Whenever I want to take a kid out fishing and keep them entertained, then I always go to Kelly Dudley.  In the summer, it is impossible not to catch a steady stream of sunfish.  I have never tried it in the winter, but suspect it would be a good place to keep an eight year old busy.   If you go out, make absolutely sure to bring ice cleats.   There is an indoor fish camp going on in Faribault this weekend.  http://www.maxsolutionsonline.com/cityoffaribault/Customer/ActivityDetail.aspx

      Are you looking for this summer?   Are you looking for cabin type resorts, camping, tent/RV?   Here is a place to start:   http://business.parkrapids.com/list/category/resort-cabin-327   I live in the area so haven't spent to much time at different resorts but I've always liked R&D Resort on Straight Lake in Osage, MN which is only 8 miles from Park Rapids. Isle O' Dreams is another very cool place to stay.

      Lots of water on the ice now where people have their houses. Took my house off yesterday and the plowed roads were pretty slushy already.
