  1. So after returning to Minnesota after living pretty much everywhere else, I have finally returned to fishing. Didn't realize how much I missed it until I started again. I'm tired of fishing the river under the bridge like a troll so I'm looking for some good spots to shore fish around Ottertail. My regular spot is too warm now and the fish have moved on. I'm one of the odd balls who's not into muskies or walleyes. Really prefer bluegill and bass. I'm a bobber, nightcrawler and beer kinda girl. Any advice on where to go? How are the lakes in Maplewood State Park.
  2. Looking to bring my fly fishing into the metro. Anyone willing to share where they've gone, if at all?

    Where what when

    Headed to Brainerd Area July 9-11 coming from Colorado to visit friends. Well actually my girlfriend is I am tagging along to hopefully catch some fish with my flyrod And or jigs. Seeking advice on which lakes and tactics and anything else helpful to help maximize fishing time in your state. I will have access to a canoe on Hubert Lake. Any and all advice would be much appreciated if anyone is into flyfishing Stillwater and would like to go or show me some pointers on your home waters That would be awesome thanks looking forward to any responses.
  6. Good morning! Heading up to Vermilion for the weekend and usually chase Walleye, but my son wants to get some fishing action. We usually chase panfish together for the excitement and numbers (always fun to watch the bobber go down )- Is there anywhere that a guy can look to find sunnies on Vermilion?? I've never heard of it so I'm worried that may not be an option.. We are on the south side of Big Bay near Pike Bay / Everett Bay road, but can boat to where we would need to! Thanks!! -Cobber
  7. Need to get out for a while. Any fishing being done on Cedar Lake in New Prague.
  8. Decided to go check out one of my shore spots for early spring pan fish. Man was it good timing. Fish were stack in the shallows. Quick limit of crappies and home for dinner. Now on to Bass opener Saturday. Good luck everyone!

    Open water panfish

    I've never chased panfish during the open water season. I caught my first bluegill this winter, and have developed quite the crush on them. What's your go to rod, length and action? Plastics or bait? Line type and lb? Do you use a bobber? Should I use same jigs as winter or plain hook?
  10. What baits and lures should I use for crappie in lake Minnetonka
  11. Anybody ever fish this lake? I know it's a bass lake. Back in my high school days a neighbor and classmates mom had a place on there. Used to catch all kinds of sunfish and crappies, albiet small. We fished over by what I believe used to be called peanut hill. Thinking about some day trying it again.
  12. Hi everyone! Just joined this forum, hoping someone here can lend a hand. My wife and I live about a half an hour south of the cities and are looking to get a couple hours up north to a rather secluded public area where we can sit around outdoors and I really want to catch some panfish from shore. Most docks are at public accesses and my wife prefers somewhere less occupied and grassy. I just want to toss a bobber out and hopefully reel something in. I’d rent a boat but apparently that’s not an option during this whole Coronavirus thing we got going on. If you have any ideas for me let me know

    Mille Lacs

    With the crazy restrictions on Mille Lacs and the uncertain opener are any of you still planning to fish Mille Lacs? Will you hit other lakes or just going to stay home this summer and hope things get back to normal? The very dedicated Walleye guys are really going to need to adjust or hit other lakes. Businesses are going to get clobbered. Sad situation. Hopefully there is something left in 2021.
  14. On a whim I was shore fishing in the parkway, just a smallish hook and red wigglers from the garden.The little nibblers started hitting hard after 3pm. They're hungry! I saw larger ones but they were too clever for my hook. This was a nice day to get back into the groove- get a feel for my gear and practice casting. Hopefully the big biters will come out to play soon. Happy Spring!
  15. Here’s the end of my fall open-water fish. (I can't wait 'til I can start casting again; Perhaps that's blasphemy to say during the heart of hard water season...) These were mostly perch with one or two sunnies. I adjusted my usual recipe: Made a pulverized dry batter of 1 part peanuts, 2 parts goldfish crackers, 1 part whole wheat crackers, 2 parts flour. Dusted the fillets well and pan-fried in corn oil. Seasoned with a sprinkle of Cavenders. (First time I’ve tried peanuts in a fry-batter and The “critics” (wife and 2 kids) gave it definite two thumbs up!
  16. Ice Conditions are very exceptional still as there is not much snow left atop, or at all on most lakes. Ice thickness has remained consistent for the most part from 26” to 36” of ice. Continue to use caution however, especially on the inlets, outlets, where springs may be present and of course along the shallows and shorelines as light precipitation, sun, and warm weather can begin to erode ice extremely fast. We are on some of the best fishing we have had yet this season as far as panfish are concerned. For the most part the bluegills are on the drop offs of weed points and inside corner

    Mille Lacs

    Has anyone found some perch or burbot around Garrison on Mille Lacs? I might be out there this weekend and I was wondering if mudflats would be good for perch?
  20. Had a fantastic fun filled final ice fishing weekend with grandkids, son daughter-in-law on Coon lake across the street from home. SnoDog run, bit of wind, camera site fishing (and learning), new flasher and family along with a small mishap on my part made this a memorable outing for years to come.

    Heck of a weekend!!!

    Well we wrapped up a few days up north. Tried a lake I’ve been to a few times in past but seem to always struggle at getting anything going. It took a lot of miles on the sled and be willing to go out in subzero temps and strong winds but I was able to contact a massive amount of gills. Ended up catching around 300 I figure. Biggest was about 9”- 9 1/2”. A lot of dandies over all. Kept a few meals to hold me over for a while. Next day went back and threw out a tipup with suckers I had left over from a few weeks ago. I literally could not keep the flag down! ( haha what a funny sentence!!) it w
  22. Fished hard for 3 days on Big Stone Lake and the bite was very, very tough. The nice Marked a lot of fish and just couldn't get them to bite. Did manage some dandy perch and trophy gills,(released) but not a lot of numbers. Saturday late afternoon we stuck 3 gills over 10". My nephew had one that was at least 10 1/2" but released it before I could measure or get a pic. Sunday we had 2 more at or just under 10". Had to downsize to get bit. Did catch a couple on set lines with fatheads. Spoons didn't get bit often. Tungsten jigs or flies tipped with plastics or eurolarvae got most of th

    Taking kids ice fishing

    Looking for a decent lake in central mn that will be active enough to keep my 6 and 4 yo interested. I am going out Saturday to try and find something, but figured maybe someone on here has a tip I wouldnt have thought of.
  24. Found this and would like to see your opinions.... The DNR is in the process of finalizing plans for the Quality Bluegill Initiative, revealed last summer in the hope of going public early this spring. Implementation would happen in 2021. The goal was to greatly increase the number of lakes in the state with reduced limits for bluegills in hopes of growing bigger sunfish. Big sunfish, as anybody who's dunked a worm knows, is among the rarest of fish in Minnesota. A true trophy, 10 inches or longer, might be tougher to catch than an eight-pound walleye. Decad
