Shore Fishing in Red Wing

6 posts in this topic

I am new to the area and I do not have my boat out of storage yet and was wondering if there are locations in the red wing area that I could have success fishing for walleyes from shore. Not asking for anybodies honey holes, just some guidance - thanks in advance

The levy wall and under the high bridge would be your best bet for nice walleye and sauger.

Thanks Ike, I will stop in when I am down your way. What are your hours, also I tried calling the bait shop this morning and got a recording that said your number was no longer in the 651 area code. Hope to see you soon!

I usually drive down for a few mornings of fishing on the shore in Red Wing. Honestly I don't catch as many walleye as I do striped bass along the shore. Though I can usually manage to catch at least a couple walleye.

If you are adventerous enough, just worth your way south along the train tracks and fish the rocks where all the guys in boats come right up to shore. wink.gif

      I took the boat out for a test run last weekend to a quiet little lake. Water temp was 54. This weather isn't going to help with the water temps.

      Is the Vermilion egg capture complete?

      I hope to be out early next week.  Weather and river level depending.  Will post a report if I make it out.  Boat all ready to go.

      I camp on an island so I don't have to worry about the landings and crowds. Do most of our fishing at night so I never worry about other anglers. If I needed to go to a public landing for opener I would never go.

      Here's the State's definition of a public water. Please note the highlighted text.  The Sucker is a Designated Trout Stream. (remember the blasting and improvements made back in the 70's? Those were public dollars that paid for it. )  That said, this isn't license for people to slob up private property, only to gain access to the stream. It might mean walking the shoreline from bluebird landing, or down from the freeway, but the water is open, and fishable,  to the high water mark. Subd. 15.Public waters. (a) "Public waters" means: (1) water basins assigned a shoreland management classification by the commissioner under sections 103F.201 to 103F.221; (2) waters of the state that have been finally determined to be public waters or navigable waters by a court of competent jurisdiction; (3) meandered lakes, excluding lakes that have been legally drained; (4) water basins previously designated by the commissioner for management for a specific purpose such as trout lakes and game lakes pursuant to applicable laws; (5) water basins designated as scientific and natural areas under section 84.033; (6) water basins located within and totally surrounded by publicly owned lands; (7) water basins where the state of Minnesota or the federal government holds title to any of the beds or shores, unless the owner declares that the water is not necessary for the purposes of the public ownership; (8) water basins where there is a publicly owned and controlled access that is intended to provide for public access to the water basin; (9) natural and altered watercourses with a total drainage area greater than two square miles; (10) natural and altered watercourses designated by the commissioner as trout streams; and (11) public waters wetlands, unless the statute expressly states otherwise.
