Shorefishing NE Metro

3 posts in this topic

I was thinking about doing some shorefishing this weekend...maybe start out at peltier/centerville, and hit forest, bald eagle, white bear, and bone lakes throughout the day. Any other nearby spots worth a look for crappies?

Dinnerbell up in Lindstrom and North Center might give you a good shot. Also on the way up that way shorefishing on Little comfort can be good early. If you want to head up towards North Branch the Kost dam area can hold some nice fish both above and below the dam as well as the bay just before the dam. Hope this helps.

The kost pond...wow, I haven't been there since I was a kid! I used to catch some giant bullheads below the dam. I don't think I'll go up as far as the chisago chain. I'm gonna save those lakes for my boat when the weather gets a little warmer.

      A good ice fishing suit ( ice armor, striker gear etc) or waders just put layers underneth. That's what I would do.

      I hear ya on the ice safety.  I am trying to plan appropriately for possibly fishing in 3-6" of standing water.   Thanks guys!

      Hey guys!  Just started the a topic discussion for the Rainy River Conditions.  I did check the river today and there is some open water east of Birchdale Landing and posted some pictures of that Landing and Franz Jevne.  Thanks!

         I went and checked the river just before 9:00 am this morning.  The river is open just east of Birchdale with only a narrow spot open.  East of Franz Jevne (about 2 miles east of Birchdale) the River is almost completely open with some shore ice.  The temperature was 19 degrees and it looks like we are suppose to stay below freezing until Sunday with a high of 32 degrees and then it will get cold again.  It is hard to say how the river will open this year with cold weather coming again but here is what it looked like this morning.  Depending on the weather we may not go and check the river again until Monday sometime.   Where you can see pavement is the Birchdale Landing and the other access is at Franz Jevne:
