shore fishing

5 posts in this topic

Ive lived in the area now for going on 4 years and since i have lived here i have gone fishing ZERO times. Growing up I had a pole in my hand every weekend. I have a 3 year old step son who I would like to introduce fishing to. I dont own a boat and was wondering if anyone would give me some areas where I could take him for some panfish from shore. Actually any place that has some decent fishing from shore, does not need to be panfish I guess. If anyone can help me out, id appreciate it, thanks.

Try the bridges by Fish and Island Lakes ,,rock bass and pan fish frequent the areas there along with an ocasional bigger fish ,,just keep your lines clear of the channel when boats want to go thru ,,,Good Luck

All I can say is trial and error... Just experiment and test out different locations until you find one that works for you.

For sunnies you can't beat Chub lake in Carlton. They don't get big but you can catch(or at least a while back you could) a ton of the little buggers.

if you are just looking to catch fish to keep kids entertained, then go to the rice lake (Contact Us Please) and catch all the rockbass you want.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
