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.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!
