im from the north metro and i am planning on camping in r.j. dorer state forest for a couple days next week. I want to do some fishing but i don't really know where to start. since panfish and trout are the only thing in season that is probably what i will be targeting. what are some places i could try and how should i go about fishing? any help would be greatly appreciated.
thanks

Hey fisher13 nice to hear from you, Do you know where you will be camping at? Dorer is a pretty big area with many places to camp, if we know exactly where you'll be staying, I'm sure that somebody can put you on some fishing real close to where you will be.

Yes the c&r trout season is going on now, but only on cerain streams, but come April 1st all streams will be open to c&r for trout in SEMN.

Fisher13,
If you can be a little more specific on where you'll be staying & how far you wish to travel from your "base" . I may be able to help you with some nice fishing spots.You don't need you to be exact, but more specific info certainly would help reduce the amount I would have to type. wink.gif
I'll check back here & see if I can help.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.
