Tailgating

4 posts in this topic

I'm going to the vikings game this weekend and I haven't been to a game in probably about 6-7 years. I want to get down there around 9-10 and grill some food and have a beverage or two before the game and I was wondering about where I should park. I thought I heard something about not being able to tailgate around the dome or only in certain lots or something. Can anyone help me out? I'll be coming into downtown from 394.

Man, when it is free, I can really load up on food&drinks.

You bringin' any tupperware?

Should be a pretty good game for you Buzz. I don't think Carolina is gonna rollover 2 weeks in a row, so the Vikes better bring their A-game. I got NO at GB but I ain't watchin it (mainly 'cause they'll have daBears on in Chgo.

The only place you are suppose to tailgate now is at Rapid Park behind the target center. The wife and I went there last year and had a great time. Directions from 394 are to take the 6th street exit turn left at 2nd ave. at the 6th st. light. Go one block and turn left on 5th st. go one block to the stoplight at 3rd ave. north and turn left. Rapid Park is on the right.

      Don't go giving too much notice there Royce!    Been kinda wondering if a yakking GTG would pop up some day.  Would be a great time to share a paddle and see how others rig their gear for fishing, or whatever.  And maybe do some demo paddling in other kinds of yaks than what we're paddling now.   Now, who might be able to put something like that together??

      Gills should be on or real close to beds. Crappies are on beds on some lakes, done spawning on others. Btw, welcome to Fishing Minnesota!

      Frazer Bay is as far as I venture West but that bay can be very good at times. I prefer Lindy Rigs with a 5' leader,#2 or a #4 hook, red or green bead by the hook, and a 3/4 oz. sinker. That time of the summer minnows and leeches work best but do not be afraid to try 1/2 crawler on this rig! Like PSU said, look with your electronics for the fish, then fish for them! 12" to 32" depths. Cliff

      Fished the big lake this morning ,,, Weather didnt start out nice but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, Got my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, There is a lot of mud covering this side of the lake but finding clear to tea colored water paid off ,,,Natural colored sticks took a majority of hit today and the cohos have grown 5 inches in the last month ,,, I had one 23 inches today

      Welcome to our Forum Muzzy!  You may want to consider hiring a guide for a day or even 1/2 day to start your trip.  They can give you a lot of good information that will help you put fish in the boat for the rest of your trip.

      Hello Muzzy,   Lots of good spots close to Oak Narrows. I will let the experts pipe in, but I've been doing well in 20-30 feet of water in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. I would trust your sonar and find spots off reefs and follow down to 20-30 feet. Either jig or Lindy has been working for me with a Rainbow minnow
