Need some advice

Recommended Posts

12lb8oz

I have a 3 year old daughter who has been saying she wants to go fishing lately. I would like to take her out this weekend and catch some sunnies or crappies or anything really. I don't have a boat so where would be a good place to rent a fishing boat and try and catch some sunnies or something. I live in DL but I'm fine with driving a ways. Thanks for any advice.

One option would be Lost Valley Resort of Trowbrige and Leek Lake. They have boats that you can rent -- or at least they used to. Nice people.

I would give them a call.

Just a thought......Maplewood State Park (near Pelican Rapids) has a few smaller lakes that would be perfect...they rent small row-boats and canoes. There is a large dock/pier on Beers Lake that I often see parents with small children fishing off of. Just small sunnies near the dock but a lot of fun for kids to catch. The park is beautiful this time of year. Might be worth checking out.

Good luck

Another good option would be the Dunton Locks are of Lake Sallie. There is a good fishing peir there and decent shore fishing by the river inlet. I would also second Cliffys suggestion of Maplewood State Park. The main lake has a huge pan fish population right off of the fishing pier. Some monster muskies in there also so you may get surprised.

A good source of information can be found on the Fargo Forum's website. Go to the outdoors section and click on the resort finder. It will tell you which resorts have boat rentals.

You can rent a boat from J&K Marine right on Little Detroit. You should be able to catch fish on little d without a problem. It will mostly be sunneis but you may catch anything.

Take a trip up to Naytahwaush, and rent a boat from Pinehurst resort. Go to North Twin, it's pretty cheap and there is a great Sunfish, Bass, and northern pike population. That's where I bring the kids when I want to go. It's fun watching them reel in the northerns, they are everywhere out on that lake, well anywhere you can find cabbage in about 8 fow or less. The average size is ok too, 2-4 lbs. Nice sunnies too.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!

      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!

      I LOVE SMALLIES !  LOL  I am blessed to live close to so much fun.

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁
