MN river around Bloomington

Recommended Posts

Ok I know this may be a little early but I have basicly just moved to the area late last summer and I was wondering do many people fish the MN river? What type of fish? I have a small boat. How is the walleye fishing? Any others to target? Thanks for the help. Dave

I have wondered if there were any largemouth or smallmouth bass in the Minnesota river. I can't wait to see who replies to this one. smile.gif

Cats, Carp, Sheephead, And Walleye at certain points of the year. Good area to just throw a crawler on a hook and see what bites.

So how far up or down river do I have to get to find "good" fishing? or isn't there any in the Minnesota?

I just wonder where one can fish from shore along there...There doesnt seem to be any public shore places.

Sup. there is an exit off of 35W at the river. There is an outlet that goes into a small lake "Black Dog". I have seen many people fishing from there. On the other side (North) of the river is the public landing. It is at the end of Lyndale ave. I just drove down there today.

Too many years ago I used to fish from shore the spot you're talking about. You never knew what was going to be at the other end of the bite. Cats, sheepshead, carp, pout, dog fish, sauger, walleyes and pike were all in my bag. Never kept anything for the plate though crazy.gif

I tried by black dog once and snagged twice very bad tryign to keep the lure on the bottom. I need to try a different spot or something as there are some serious rocks or cement that were dumped in there. I think a boat would help a lot but you just need to try it out and see where you can catch fish.

I think that river changes a lot every year right?

Also always be extremely cautious as we have lost a few sportsman in accidents on the river especially on that stretch by where the barges sit.

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.

      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.

      I broke a bunch also at first  my bear paws just squeeze a little to hard! You definitely need to be carefull when putting them on to much pressure and another one bites the dust. Great bobber and concept can be used for a slip or fixed bobber just a little fragile.

      Some good sticks there!

      Looks good Royce hopefully you can put it to good use soon. The ice is sure getting thick if it keeps up I will be ordering a extension for my K drill soon or bring out the  StrikeMaster and extension.
