3 posts in this topic

Friends of The Mississippi River, Great River Greening and Macalester College are having a Wetland Planting event MAY 3rd - 9am to Noon - at the Pine Bend Bluffs on the Mississippi - Katharine Ordway Natural History Study Area, Inver Grove Heights.
99 more volunteers are needed (I'm one). To get more information and/or volunteer contact Katie at 651-222-2193. Please mention that you are not a registered volunteer, so that you can give her your mailing address to get info.

Funding for this planting of native vegetation for wetland restoration is being provided by Minnesota Environment & Natural Resources Trust Fund.

I was turned on to the FMR by the Volunteer office at the DNR.

Well, we had fun, got muddy, worked hard and met some very nice people from Friends of The Mississippi River and McCalluster College and enjoyed some beautiful scenery. We helped reclaim a piece of high-bluff wetlands back from invasive non-indigenous plant species - making for a healthier cycle of life and when the Big Wheel turns - better fishing.

Take a little bit - give a little back.

Nice job!!!
I am glad to hear it went well! I was doing some work with the forest service this weekend in the B-Dub. We got quite a bit of trails cleared and even put in a couple of latrines at the accesses so people wont just go on the ground.

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)

      Well if you are looking in the Minneapolis lake nokomis has a fishing pier   North metro Crooked lake in Andover has a pier. There is a nice park as well and all the sunfish you want to catch no big ones though.
