where to fish?

4 posts in this topic

I just moved to Waseca last winter and am looking for some good places to shore fish with the family. I've had good luck with sunnies on Clear Lake but would like to find some northerns or evan an occasional walleye. Can anybody help me?

I would go to the fish hatchery up on Lake Tetonka. There is a fishing pier there as well good northern spot with a an occasional crappie or walleye.

As 99ranger said the hatchery is a very good place for pike and the occasional eye. Another good area to fish is Loon Lake in Waseca for pike although most of them are small, Rays Lake near Elysian can also be good for pike from shore.

Lake Sakahta in Waterville has some good spots on shore for walleyes and the occasional pike such as the Narrows or the bridge off of Highway 13. There are other spots if you are willing to go exploring, but I dare not say them on the internet shocked.gif!!!!!!!

Hope this helps and GOOD FISHIN!!!!!!!!!

Eagle Lake has a real nice area to fish from shore. Notherns tend to like suckers or creekchubs on a plain hook with a modest weight about 4 feet from the hook so the bait can still swim. A lot of the big pike and walleye that was taken out of the lake last fall was put back in this spring.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
