We used to do OK fishing from shore out at Airport lake, as well as around Prairie Island too. Plenty of places to fish. This time of year is tough, but there are fish to be had. Help?

A friend of mine was down there a week or two ago and they were able to catch a handful of keeper crappies on the river. There weren't big schools of them, so you had to keep moving around, but you were able to find them. They have pretty picky standards, so they were all good size. With all the rain, I'd be careful if you are going out on the river. I know he is holding off a while until the river level goes down some.

Don't know of any specific shorefishing spots, its been a long time since I was down there.

Be safe.

      Thank you for the zip code, for the last 3 years I lose the tailgator reception at night around 8 I never know what zip code to try I sure hope it works.  All day everything is fine, evening comes I lose signal.

      I used the thumbnail method with all but the heavier split rigs.  If you're doing a bunch it gets sore.  I then use a small eye glass screw driver.  Once I get it started to remove the old one I slip the new one in behind it.  One falls off and the other on.   Careful, those small trebles are hard to hang onto and sticky sharp.

      really neat to see the lake from the aerial view!  Cool to see all the roads and the paths out there.  Kinda fun to look at the road systems and name what resort they are from...

      Was just out on ice and a big difference from yesterday.  Most water has found a hole or two or ten to drain back down.  Minimal water on the lake once get away from the accesses at least on the north end of the lake.  Houses should be fine unless in a low spot with no holes anywhere near.

      Did not like how they ended the reg and OT, they got a shot to go in Reg but in neither situation did it look like we had a plan other than "somebody make a play"... But overall I really like this group.
