Go to Fremont in Zimmerman and go to the north end. Go about 40-50yds off shore and start fishing.

Your not asking for much are you?

All the lakes in the Chisago lakes area have decent populations of fish, and some size to them as well... Big Marine lake probably has the best for numbers, but not size...

as for location.. your on your own... I would search out green weeds with deep water near by.

If you are thinking about going to Lake Fremont, check out this story from the Elk River Star News:

Lake Fremont allows open fishing

Tuesday, 22 January 2008

Open fishing is being allowed on Lake Fremont from Jan. 15 through Feb. 15 because low oxygen level is endangering fish life.

“We had very low oxygen readings yesterday and today,” reported Eric Altena, assistant area fisheries manager for the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, on Jan. 15. He said the lake’s aeration system will likely allow some fish to survive but noted “there are fish dying on the north end ... due to low oxygen.”

Signs have been posted at the public access and at the north end.

Open fishing means unlimited catches by licensed resident anglers in any manner except for the use of seines, hoop nets, fyke nets, or explosives.

Go there Biff and drive the north road and check out the little back bay that the culvert runs into and you will see all the devastation that is left on top of the ice......big carp and lots of little bullheads!!! I have only seen 2 people fishing the actual lake part in the last 2 weeks.....

Wow....That lake used to be really good for Pike, straight out and a little to the right from where the culvert ran in there. To bad for Fremont.

Fremont Lake....well, you can stick a fork in it, because it is done.I spent part of the afternoon out there today,and the fish are gone.I fished 4 different sections of the lake with nothing to show for it.There is at least 30 inches of ice on the lake right now.I did drive the north road when I left, and saw the channel that was chiseled in the ice by the culvert.Dead and frozen fish, carp I am assuming, were on the ice by the chisled out area.A local guy who was driving by, told me as I was unloading the atv, that he had seen carp and bullheads floating in the open area north of road a couple of days ago.Not good. Oh,well.At least it might mean bigger fish in a couple of years.

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
