Tomorrow I am taking my 7 year old nephew out for his first time on the ice. Where can I catch fish? ANYTHING!!

I want him to have a fun day, and at least see his bobber go under. Any lake between Stillwater and Wyoming. Thanks!!!!

Green lake will do you proud. Go to the access on the east side and follow the road out to your left. You will see a bunch of shacks in the area about 1/2-3/4th mile from the landing. It is easy fishing in 6-8' of water. Tear drop and waxies will get you bit all day long with bluegills, crappies and an occassional bass or pike that cruises through with even the possibility of a walleye. Really easy fishing due to the water depth. Hope this helps.

Perfect!Thanks! I'll let you know how it goes. We are also going out on Forest(first)to have lunch in a buddys perm shack. Should be a great day!

I would suggest the exact same. I go out with my 5, 3 and 2 year old and it is hard to keep up with them using one pole each. I don't even try to fish, just re-bait and remove fish from their lines. Mostly small panfish, but the kids love it.

You guys were dead on. By the time I got a second hole drilled, he had caught 2 fish. I gave up and baited and unhooked fish. What fun! Took him over to Forest after, just so he could see what it's like to not catch fish also........

Glad to hear to hear you had a good time. Nothing like the little ones when they are fire up and catching fish! May have hooked another one into fishing. Nice job getting him out to fish!

Glad to hear it worked out. With the kids I take quantity over quaility any day. There is the chance of getting some nice fish out there too. We were out and my brother caught four bass (2lbs - 3lbs) and a northern. I have never seen that many bass caught at once in the winter??? Great to hear that the next generations are out there on the ice doing us proud!

      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.
