4-H fishing day

2 posts in this topic

My brother-in-law asked me to post this. He has 4 kids in 4-H (Weeping Willows 4-H Club) and they want to do a fishing day for the younger kids. It is taking place on Super Bowl Sunday in the afternoon. They were looking for a place to fish sunfish and I don't think size matters much. Just something to keep the kids interested. They did mention Waconia, but I have never been there and I know my brother-in-law hasn't either. Anybody willing to help us out? You can e-mail me at if you don't want to share any info. on line. Thanks

Hi Schwanny. Those were the days. I was a big 4Her, helped steer me into a career and several hobbies. If I remember correctly, Weeping Willows are a Sibley County club. And if that matches your location (New Auburn), then I'm on the right track.

Anyways, I could steer you north to a few lakes, but I think you'd do better heading south to Washington Lake in LeSueur county, just east of St. Peter. It's a two basin lake with a couple public accesses. Try going off the north access out onto a big flat area of sand straight off the access. There are usually a few bluegills roaming around along with some crappies. You can actually get decent size as well. I don't mind telling you this because it is a community spot and there will be lots of people out there I would guess.

Be sure to bring a road map because to get to the public access you have to follow some winding county roads. Remember, it is the access on the northeast side. Don't drive past it, it's separate from the frontage road.

Good luck.

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.

      Plus+1 the lake landings are going to take a huge hit this week.

      Blocks. Make sure it's on blocks. In case it's unclear, use blocks.  I'm more concerned about the accesses than my house. Areas with a slope and melting snow run off are going to be a mess. Add rain to the mix and it's worse. I'll be checking on my house daily and be prepared to make the move off the lake if needed.

      Does the wording even change in the report or just the date?
