Spear Fishing

9 posts in this topic

Could anyone possibly help me out on what lake in the Willmar area is good for spear fishing? Has anyone heard of people spearing on Solomon or Diamond? I currently have my house on Diamond for angling, but want to spear this weekend. Any ides or tips on where to go would be helpful! Thanks a ton! grin.gif

I think the nothern population on Diamond is really down! The DNR says its down and between the neighbor and I who fish 4-5 days out of a week all summer and fall we only got 3 notherns and were fall fish.I'd go elsewhere. cool.gif

What About Green? I would think that the water should be crystal clear. Not sure if anyone has given it a try yet????

I would go to lake florida sloughs I have a buddy who angled out there this year a few times and he said he would catch 50 to 100 northerns every time out with a good number of 4 and 5 pounders.

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
