Metro Area Fishing

I'm currently working in the Cities and am looking for good spots to fish after working hours. I'm out near the 55/494 junction. I'd like to try around the area before branching out. If anyone could point me in some good directions I'd appreciate it.

Calhoun, Harriet, and Nokomis are all pretty good, relatively speaking, and not too far from you.

Good luck!

Medicine lake is less than a mile from there, read posts on this lake and you should find all the info that you will need.

What kind of fish do you want to catch? I live near you and could point you in some good directions for specific species.

Medicine would be an excellent choice. Nice panfish and pike population. Also a shot at the occassional walleye due to recent stocking.

I read the former postings and drove by there tonight. I think I'm good to go give it a try. Thanks everyone.

A good sleeper lake that it by Calhoun and Harriet is Ceder. I would give a try if your looking to catch some bigger fish.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.

      Looking at the beach cam there is a lot of ice on shore. Don't know how far that goes into the water though.  Last week in April- first week in May is when I come down to seine.

      Well you learn something new every day! I always thought it was mad made. Makes sense now why it formed now.

      Drove through last week and noticed the ditches didn't have much water compared to other years. Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock.

      I hung it up last Saturday. Could have gone on Sunday but choose to spend time with my Grandson instead. Need to meet up with the guys over in central Mn. one of these days.

      I don't know if Lucas has a marine gear oil.   AMSOIL Synthetic Marine Gear Lube is what I pick. I like Mobil 1in my cars and trucks but again I think your going to want to go with an oil formulated for marine use.   The NMMA FC-W rating.   Four Stroke Cycle Water Cooled.

      Just for fiun I went to wunderground.com and looked at the weekly averages for 2014, 2016, and 2018 starting the beginning of march.  2014--May 13 ice out 5  25 20 14 29 38 29 39 39 44 44 56 2016-April 25 17 38 34 30 34 25 43 47 41 52 46 49 60 2018-??? 21 24 24 26 17 26 33.... Looks like we are behind 2014 with respect to getting average temp above 32 if that is significant, although the weeks don't line up exactly and we are way behind 2016 .

      I am so glad I got to fish with Icehawk and bass thumb. It was great times and I look forward to fishing with you all soon. Fishing with Eyeguy always keeps you on your toes and it’s always fun. Rick G I learned a lot by watching you work your magic on the gills. See you all soon. Thank you everyone for letting me hangout andfish with you all.

      Just talked to my neighbor up at the lake and he said one of SunkedAgain's neighbors in Black Bay couldn't get to his place going across the Partridge River-he said he almost broke thru the ice!!  I'm down a ways toward Wakemup from the narrow part going into the bay, but we had over 30" last wknd.  Looking good for some open water to fish down my way by the opener!

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.
