Break in on Mitchell in EP

Recommended Posts

cmalis27

So I thought it would be fun to take my wife out for some ice fishing on new years eve. We got out to Mitchell Lake in Eden Prairie around 1pm and fished until dark only to find someone had broken into our van while we were out there and taken her purse. By 2:30 the had started making charges at gas stations in Richfield and Mpls., so they must have broken in during the middle of the day, with a fair amount of people around.

Just curious if anyone might have seen anything or anyone suspicious out there? I guess it's a hard lesson to make sure all valuables are out of sight no matter where you are. It just makes me sick that there are low lifes out there that do this kind of crap.

cmalis27,

Too bad DitchPickle didn't catch him doing it. It would have been worth getting you ride broken into to have him catch the perp. YOu guys could have sunk him in the bottom of the lake and used him for stucture.

Sorry to hear that. I was out on Mitchell between 2:30PM-5PM New Years Eve. There were a lot of people out fishing. I have been fishing Mitchell on a consistent basis the last three weeks. I have noticed there tends to be a lot of suspicious traffic driving in and around the park.

Have you guys been catching fish? Mitchell winter killed last March. PM please if you'd like. I won't fish it, but know someone at the DNR who would like to know if people are catching fish and what kind. Thanks.

This sucks your van was broken into while you were fishing. I hope you called the cops to report it.

Some cities like that you don't report crime as it makes them look safer.

I went out there once and we did really well. Caught some nice crappies and some really really nice sunfish. You just have to work a little bit to get on the fish. They have been getting a few northerns out there also.

Oh yeah, I had the cops out there.

I've been out there twice this year and had mixed results. Some crappies, sunnies, and a small pike.

I have been out on Mitchell a half dozen times over the last three weeks. I have tied into some nice sunnies and crappies. Recently I seen some nice northern's caught on tip up's (3 over 30+ inches) the last two times I have been out. Most of the fish are being caught in 6-8ft of water.

If you can find them the fishing can be pretty good, but it is definately not what it has been in past years

      Went to Franconia on Saturday. Wind was cold and miserable! With it howling straight downstream, my options were pretty limited, so we mostly trolled up and down the main channel. Caught 1 pike, 2 smallies, and 1 white bass.

      Things seem to be moving right along.  Yesterday on a small Cass county lake we found sunfish and crappies in 6ft+/- ft of water with some crappies already on beds.

      Looks like it was a successful outing ST. My boat probably  hates me as I haven't had it out for a swim yet. MAYBE, if I'm lucky I will be able to get out over Memorial weekend. Thanks for the report.

      Most of the streams are small. Where I focus is the small streams in the back country for brook trout. Casting is hard on these streams. Some of the bigger rivers can be good. Remember the crazy rules on these streams. 
    • monstermoose78
      Wow Eyeguy you can catch them and panfish. Keep it up and let’s hear about some details.
    • monstermoose78
      The walleye bite is heating up around the area. Bass are on the beds and panfish are keeping most anglers busy. Remember the new pike regs are in place now. Good luck and let’s hear some reports and see some more photos!! Thank you to all that check my reports. I am off to get some fishing in. 
    • monstermoose78
      Hello everyone,  please check out the fishing report clubs. I believe the first few members can get in free. I hope you are all doing well fishing and hunting. I look forward to reading your reports.  If you any questions just ask. thank you, monstermoose

      Thanks for the reports guys.

      The last few days have been pretty hot on areas of the river for a lot of nice bass between 16-18 inches, topping out at 19 inches for my largest. Many were fish located on spawning beds, some hitting aggressively and immediately, and some not interested in even acknowledging the bait. I started out with a 4 inch wacky worm on a VMC wacky weedless jighead, but found that I was getting larger, more aggressive fish by switching to a 5 inch wacky. I would Imagine that the spawn will be all but over within a few days.
