Unusual Week-Need some help

9 posts in this topic

I actually have this week off of work; I thought I would run out this morning and check Sherburne National Forest. Wow, what a waste of time. The Fed's have closed Long Pool to any and all boat traffic - there is NO water except for a stream.

I then checked out some local pot holes without any luck. Seems this years drought has been worse then what I thought.

So, does anyone have any other ideas of where to go this week? I live in Saint Paul but will drive up to an hour+. Any help will be great. I prefer to walk-in but have a canoe, boat, 100 decoys and five spinner style decoys.

Most people here wont' really help out over the web board. But I will. There are some good WMAs around jorden, there is another out near buffalo, in french lake township. jorden you will need the canoe, frech lake you can walk in. in a gazetteir from a sporting goods shop. the wma's show up. i cant give ypu directions, it been 3 to 4 yrs since ive been to anyone of the areas. i remember french lake was across from a buffalo farm down a dirt road. hope this helps.

the river bottoms from shakopee through jordan have tons backwaters. J've never hunted any but have seen alot of ducks and geese back there during the winter snowmobiling. alot of them you will need a boat but a few you could walk in.

I went just north of Jordon south of shokopee and it was tough walking. The river was about 4-5 feet high so just a little too deep for me walking. But there was birds.

I've been thinking about scouting the Jordan river bottom area for places to duck hunt, if anybody has interest in doing the same or getting together to hunt that area let me know. I usually go to Little Falls or Hastings and was looking for something closer to home.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      Thanks, shes a tough lake to keep stocked I think with the pressure it gets all summer.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
