Finding spots to fish??

Recommended Posts

FishingPops

Hi everyone,

I have a 7 and 9 year old (and another on the way) that I am trying to take fishing. I myself have limited knowledge about fishing. Anyway, where can you find spots to fish from shore? The kids get a little antsy in a boat and don't usually want to go out with me. We have tried a couple west metro piers and they enjoy running around when they aren't fishing. Any ideas to try this time of year?

Thanks!!!

I haven't fished this time of year from shore, but to get the wife and a couple of friends kids hooked I tooke them to Keller (south side) and Island lake. Used to hammer em so fast I couldn't fish because I was too busy baiten the wifes hook. Try it out, might be good. Just tiny sunnies, but fun for kids and getting someone into fishing.

Thanks for the info! That is the kind of things my kids would like. Just some action, it doesn't really matter what kind of fish.

We live in Carver County so we would be looking for something closer. I was looking at the DNR website and found a list of fishing spots in Carver County. We will try to give one of those spots a try.

That's how I found those spots. Just look at the "fishing in the neighborhood" on the dnr website.

Don't be afraid to call the people listed on that site too. I emailed them and they called me back within 15 minutes. He was extremely helpful and they will have current info that isn't on the site like where the fish have been biting. I found out where stocking of channels in these kids ponds has been very successful. I also found out the better bass lakes in the metro.
