MN river around Bloomington

11 posts in this topic

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.

      This ice season  has been in the books on the st croix for about a week now. I ended my year out there with a 50" sturgeon.

        What is working for 2 fishing buckets, ion auger & Vexlar for walking out on early/late ice?   Appreciate to hear what works for walking out for a hole hopping Crappie freak

      I have been busy with Work ... went down to check it out North access this morning.  Definitely good enough to walk out.  a tall guy walked a big sled right out.  was also a clam 2 seater pull over out on the ice.  The wind however is blowing very cold!  I do not have a sled for walking out ... so hoping for ATV ice soon!  I went searching at Princeton Wallmart if they had any leftover sleds, no go.  Will have to pick one up this week.   Bob
