I live just a couple of blocks from Penn Lake. Its at 86th and Penn. There is a jetty that I fish off of occasionally while walking the dog or just getting out for a bit. I've never caught anything there yet. I've only seen people shore fish the lake and haven't seen anyone out there in a canoe or boat. I don't know if motors are allowed. There is a boat ramp. I don't have a map of the lake and haven't seen any fish stocking/netting data. I believe I tryed to find it on the DNR lakefinder one time awhile ago and couldn't get a hit. I've talked with the neighbors when I see them out working in their lawns and one guy said people get fish out of there. Mainly panfish and an occasional northern. I know there are plenty of carp in there. I don't think the lake is very deep, the City of Bloomington runs an aerator there during the winter. I've never seen anyone out there ice fishing either.

Deepest area might hit 7 feet (in front of the aerator) Majority of lake is less than 4 foot.

AJ,

Yeah, I think there might be a few tigers left in the little lake that is Penn. Might have to hit it with king tut super frogs before dark some evening to verify. Musky Reon is back in action.

      Anyone have any luck around stuntz bay seven sisters area lately?

      I heard the guides are on to the walleye bite on the west end, finally the fish have returned and it appears there's a few good year classes.

      @Tom Sawyer Its not supposed to be that way.  Is it??  It stinks when everything else gets in the way of spending some time on the water. 😒

      I couldn't agree more Jarrid,  modifying the possession/ catch limits would probably help preserve and enhance the fishery. Several years ago when I was still living in the St. Cloud area, there was a lake outside of Albany that a  couple of year classes of Croppies came into their own. After  the increased pressure of both one hard and the following open water season  that lake saw, it was like  the Dead Sea after that.  Personally, if I find an active school, I won't keep my limit, just enough for a meal with the family.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....

      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.   
    • osok
      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)
