      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Question about Hutch area

Recommended Posts

UMDSportsman

I'm not from the Hutch area, and i have a couple questions for you guys. I am a student and considering a summer internship opportunity with a company in Hutch. Does anybody know what there is for apartments in the area. I did a little searching on the internet, but didn't find many places, and most of them wanted a 6 or 12 month lease. I would only be there from the middle of may till the middle or end of august. If anybody has any suggestions or places to look that would be great. The one problem is the company needs to know by monday if i will take the position or not. Any help would be great. Thanks guys.

There is a community college (Ridgewater) that is pretty good about finding their students housing. I would contact them...you should be able to find a sublet or something, or at least get a list of contacts.

I was also curious if there are any outdoor archery ranges, or places i could go to shoot my bow. I will need to start shooting agin come spring/summer. I like to shoot outdoors and like to be able to shoot at any distance i want, not just sit at the line and shoot 20 yards all day long.

Thanks for the help. You guys are great. I will have to take everything into consideration when making my decision.

Gopher Campground is just north of Hutch if you are a member, I dont know what it costs but I dont think it's all that much.

I'm not sure what Gopher has for an archery range if any at all, but there are others in the area as well. Gopher membership is $20/yr if I recall.

Hutchinson/Little Crow Archery club along the Crow river is free I believe. It's right behind the SuperAmerica on Highway 7. Haven't used it yet, so maybe someone can confirm that.

UMD, call the college, and ask them for the Housing List, they have them there where you can go through the list to find what will fit your needs

I guess I'm not sure either. I know they shoot a lot of rifles out there, I deer hunt accross the lake from there and it never fails to have someone start shooting right at prime time every year on deer hunting weekend.

I talked a lady last night from the company that made me the offer and she made it sound like they have the housing figured out, like there is a person that is working there now that will be moving out around the time i would be moving in and that it would be arranged for me. Thanks for all the info guys. I guess i was kind of expecting to have to find my own housing.

I know folks in the Little Crow Archery club...they don't mind folks shooting down by SA. I've done it many times. The range goes upto 50 yards. There is also an indoor range if you become a member. As I've been told by the co-ops reporting to me that apartments are easy to come by. The best is to get a local paper.

Update- I accepted the offer and will be living in Hutch this summer. It sounds like they might have the housing thing worked out for me. It will take a little while to get everything sorted out and i know exactly what is happening. Thanks for everything.

check out the dam in the town of hutch. There is alot of fish that are caught there every year. Might want to check Stahls as well. Great panfish lake.

They just re-worked the dam. I doubt there will be much for good fishing there this summer. But stahls has some nice shore fishing, and also check between preston and lake allie SW of hutch for some crappie bite

I believe Hook Lake has a culvert a person can stand by and cast for fish too. On Marion, you could try that area along Hwy. 15. My buddy caught a 24" walleye one time doing that. Belle Lake and Marion have fishing piers. Speaking of Belle, there is a culvert on the northwest side of the lake that might be worth trying at night for walleyes when the season opens. Also, there's a large culvert under the road that connects Stella and Washington. Not sure how accessible it is and if you can park nearby, but that might be worth considering.

That's about as much as I'm aware of.

Minnie Belle also has a pier. I'm pretty sure if you put up a post or two that you would help pay for some gas or something you could find someone to go with. There are decent lakes north of town for about every species in the book.

      I will be going out for the night bite on green this week. I need to find some more fish as the wife wants a fresh fish dinner.

      We found our better pike in 20 fow this weekend.  Same weekend last year they were in 7.  That might be the reason you haven’t been seeing much while spearing? Thicker ice and more snow.  And they’ve been grabbing small minnows after staring at em for a long time.  They marked a heavy line on the sonar for up to half hour before slurping in the crappie minnow. Small shiners have been getting small pike.  Large shiners haven’t been getting hit at all.

      I've been out there a few times. Where are the deadheads?

      Fished shields lake yesterday from 900 am to 6. 12 fow caught 25 real nice gills 10 perch ,all dinks. And 2 crappie about 9 inches. Pretty steady fishing all day. We were about 50 yds from all the sleepers. Lots of traffic. At least 2 ft of ice. Used a little ant , orange and bright green with some white dressing tied to it. Got em from Nagel's. He said they were good, and he was right. Tipped with wax worm. Crappie came in at 530 caught the biggest on a glow blue angel eye with a minnow head. Snowing really hard so we packed up. Tent is froze. But we're going back out here in a bit. Gonna try roberds lake. I'll post later on that. Good luck all!

      You two are sure putting the smack down on some super sized Pike! Those walleye text you just sent were nice too. Your killing me man; I'm off todo more snowblowing. Though to take it when the wife's schoolin' ya', been there lots of times with Patty. Join my club, LOL!

      Slobslayer99 , Echo can be a fun lake to fish for Walleye and Crappie. As for being there on the opener , like most lakes , it's all going to come down to when the ice goes out , and the type of springtime weather that prevails up there this year as to how the opener bite might be . The lake is shallow and has quite stained water . Early ice out , and a warmer spring can have the lake good to go on the opener for you  for both species. As for where to fish , that also depends on the spring also , as the water starts to warm there , very shallow muck with deadheads around the lake , or the shallow rock pile with reeds on the far eastern  end are usually safe bets for Crappie . As for the walleye , they can be caught on the rocky shorelines throughout the lake . Early fishing there is best with minnows...  ahhh the opener , you gotta love it .
    • Slobslayer99
      Going up the echo for the first time this opener any tips or info would be appreciated
    • JBMasterAngler
      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.
