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 Schwanny@hutchtel.net 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.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
