Grindstone Lake

4 posts in this topic

Anybody been on Grindstone? Ice depth? I'm assuming you don't need a trout stamp as long as you don't keep any? Thanks.

Don't know anything about Grindstone except I would like to try it sometime. Including if its a Designated Trout lake.

I do know you must have a trout stamp to fish trout on any DESIGNATED trout lake, regardless of your C&R intentions.

Good luck!

Acording to the DNR website Grindstone is NOT!! a designated trout lake. There are both Lakers and Rainbows in there, but the people I talk to say the ice can be VERY iffy. So be carefull.

Even in the best of years the ice is iffy out there. Treat the lake as if it is first ice all of the time.

      I took my kids for a monticello outing yesterday, but my boy spiked a fever on the way so I had to abort mission.  Tried a little shorefishing at home this afternoon in Brooklyn Park. I tried spoons, jerkbaits and ringworms. No action.

      Heading to Grand rapids on Wed. Any chance a guy can drive back in the woods with a car??

      Palmer lake is good for sunfish (and it's kind of a pond), but it's been getting hammered this winter. I'm worried about the pressure it's been getting. I wouldn't mention it here, but word is clearly out already. There are a lot of great options to try around Eagan. That's where I do most of my pond fishing.  I live in Brooklyn Park now and have had a tough time finding good fishing in ponds/little lakes up this way. Might have to give the clay hole a try
