Native Prairie Grass and Plants?

7 posts in this topic

Last Spring or I think it was last spring there was a post that turned into a conversation about Native Prairie Grass and Plants. I did a search and I know there was someone that post here that has his yard in St. Cloud planted with some native plants or grass. I am intrested in planting some native plants and grass in my yard. So please help me with finding the post or if you are the one with the plants in your yard please respond.

You should be able to get some help from the local DNR office or the NRCS or farm service office. They have been very helpful to me. Also might want to check with the local Pheasants Forever chapter if you have one.

Just rememeber when you plant your native prairie grasses, they'll look like heck the first couple of years, give them time! Its also worth the extra $ to include some of the flowers, at the right time of year they're great!

      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.
