Advice for Lake/Fishing Guide in Minneapolis area

6 posts in this topic

Hello. I am from Cincinnati and will be coming to the Minneapolis area for a job training from June 18-28 and will have 1 day off and would like to do a guided fishing trip. I'd like to catch possibly some Smallmouth, Largemouth, Walleye, Pike, Muskie, and/or Crappie. What is biting well right now in Central Minnesota? Any advice for a lake and/or guide service would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot!

You might consider fishing the St Croix river. Check out the guides listed on the site. I can highly recommend Turk at Croixsippi Guide Service. Good trip for smallies nad walleyes.

Griz is great and can easily be reached at Blue Ribbon Bait in Oakdale, Minnesota. Great guy recently inducted into the Minnesota fishing hall of fame. My son and I went out with him and just his stories made the trip. Plus we killed the Walleyes.

      Was on Skogman last night. Could not get anything of size to bite. 3 " sunnies and 6" crappies this time. The vex was lit up most of the time with lookers.  Last year did Ok with bigger crappies and sunnies. Middle of the week - not to much activity - nice weather- was hoping for better results. Oh well - that's fishing. Good Luck

      You're running up against a political position here, not a logical one. I'm struggling to remember if it was Pawlenty or Ventura but one of them started to swing things heavily towards "fees" because they could argue that they weren't new taxes. I think that mentality has permeated through many layers of government by now, so I'm not surprised to hear someone from the DNR state that fishing license fees aren't taxes.   It doesn't really matter, we are paying to use something that requires money to stock and manage. Whatever it's called, it will never be free unless fishing pressure drastically decreases.

      Spent a few hours on Skogman yesterday. (3:00 to 6:30)  Most of the time the vexlar was so lit up that you couldn't see the lure. Bad news is that they were very small sunnies and crappies. Fished in the area of the cluster of ice houses in  24  ft water. No fish kept this time out. Good ice but getting a little sloppy.

      Another Spring-like day on Thursday. I got skunked but my buddy landed a couple of nice ones. C & R.

      Very true! Cenaiko Lake had at least 100 houses on it at 7 in the morning on Saturday and it is only a 28 acres. It is absolutely packed with fish though.
