Fishing the SE metro

4 posts in this topic

Tomorrow, I am meeting up with a friend who recently moved to the SE metro and we're are going to try out a new lake. We are specifically looking at the Egan/Rosemount area. We are both originally from the NE metro and have not really fished down there. I couldnt really find much info on the DNR website about the area lakes.

Could anyone provide some info on some solid fishing lakes?

It looks like there are some decent sized lakes in the Lebanon Hills park, are those good fishing lakes?

Appreciate any help!

All the lakes in the area kinda suck. Depends on what you're looking for i guess. You can target almost any for northern, dont guarentee any results. You could try marion in lakeville, or maybe a burnsville lake. Just scout around a little bit. but i wouldnt recommend any of the lebanon hill park lakes.

Ya, about the only decent waters in the SE metro are the mississippi river and some of the sloughs and lakes that come off of it. Not much down there worthwhile besides that.

HookemHard, try fishing a little further south.

There isn't much in the Eagan, AppleValley, Burnsville areas. Mostly Childrens fishing ponds & lakes. But if you venture south towards Rice County and past you'll find some good lakes that may bring on some fish action.

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff

      How do you fish for the cats on open water?

      Interesting point, BT.  I think our houses caught one perch this year, and I can't say that I knowingly marked one small one (except for when I was down in the bays on the south side).  I have no doubt that they are still in the lake, but I just ain't seeing any.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.
