Metro Area Fishing

9 posts in this topic

I'm currently working in the Cities and am looking for good spots to fish after working hours. I'm out near the 55/494 junction. I'd like to try around the area before branching out. If anyone could point me in some good directions I'd appreciate it.

Calhoun, Harriet, and Nokomis are all pretty good, relatively speaking, and not too far from you.

Good luck!

Medicine lake is less than a mile from there, read posts on this lake and you should find all the info that you will need.

What kind of fish do you want to catch? I live near you and could point you in some good directions for specific species.

Medicine would be an excellent choice. Nice panfish and pike population. Also a shot at the occassional walleye due to recent stocking.

I read the former postings and drove by there tonight. I think I'm good to go give it a try. Thanks everyone.

A good sleeper lake that it by Calhoun and Harriet is Ceder. I would give a try if your looking to catch some bigger fish.

Hey Cahuna,

      So a few questions about Winni as I have never been there before. Do you find that the fishing tapers off as winter progresses, for example if heading up there for Perch and Walleye would you chose January, February or March, or doesn't it seem to matter much?  Also what is the night vs daytime bite like? Trying to plan a few days up there with the wife and trying to decide when to go and if a sleeper is worthwhile or just do a daytime shack.   Any thoughts are appreciated.     Thank you

      The Helix 5 gives you the option to view different screens. The view button option shows separate flasher screen, sonar , gps , others. Screen views will run side by side in different combinations, but flasher screen only works by itself. Great little unit. I use mine for gps . Ram mount on handlebar
