Metro area lakes and playgrounds/parks

Recommended Posts

Lost

Hey guys, I'm looking for suggestions on any metro area lakes that have a fishing pier and a playground or open field (for kite flying) in the same general area as the fishing pier. All suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

If you would rather e-mail me, send to [email protected]

Try Clifton E French Park on the north side of Medicine Lake.They seem to have everything.You can access it from Rockford Rd.It's between Hwy.169 and Hwy 494,in Plymouth.

Good Luck and Good Fishin'!

Lake Gervais in Maplewood! Excellent lakes for a day out.. 4 lakes connected total.. I boat and bring the kids there often... since if the kids get tired of fishing.. we just boat to the park on the SW side of the biggest lake (Gervais) and play in the playground.. and there is a great fishing pier there too where I can cast...

Perfect! ... nice beach and plenty of room for kites.. just wish the fishing was better.. not so great from my experience.. plenty of sunnies and an occasional bass. I still have not learned the lakes yet... (see my other post!)- maybe it's not so bad.

Only trouble.. the ramp only has 7 spaces.. fills up so fast. But you can park on the main road south a ways.. just a long walk. Tough walk for my 2 and 4 y/o.

Thanks guys, there is no boat yet. That will hopefully change in the next couple of weeks. If I don't end up going in for jury duty I'll have the money to buy a used one. Otherwise I'm stuck without one.

I think that Maplewood location sounds like a great location.

Do you have to pay to get into the Medicine Lake location? Trying to keep cost down to just food and gas.

Yeah.. the maplewood park and fishing pier are just off Hwy 36 and 35E.. just a block off 36. So really easy to get to by land boat. The pier is never crowded either and is a good long one.

      Toddrun, You are correct. It seems as if it’s still larvea down there in big bay. Have seen very few , if any mayflies in the air.

      Nice fish Reid, We saw lots of clouds coming out of the mud also, but didn't know what was hatching.  Did see lots of dragonfly's, but not much for fishflies or mayflies in the air.  We didn't have any big fish luck for found keeper fish in the first rock edges around the mud. A guy in our resort claimed he caught a 32" Walleye, but we didn't see any pic's, so not verified, although had several witnesses that confirmed it.  Would have been nice to see it though.

      Bass is my favorite fish to eat.    I always keep them.   If anyone told me not to I would tell them to go to [email protected]#$.    I always eat everything I catch. Catch and release is a choice not a law.   As long as people eat what they catch I have no problem with what ever they catch.   Those who waste fish I have a problem with or those who catch and release too much and end up killing fish I even have a bigger problem with.   Don

      The OP specifically requested advice on how to best address what he personally considers an issue; respectfully. And yes, I do agree, and therefore respect his request enough to answer it; respectfully. I’ve personally dealt with the same conflict of interest in the past and feel that I understand the emotions on both sides enough to offer qualified advice that is more practical and useful than just saying mind your own darn business.

      Hit BSL on Friday to tryand find those slabs again... They were right in the same area as the last time I was out, but could not get one to bite to save my life... They were taunting me jumping all around me... I got some walleyes, nothing over 14" though... The bugs were horrible on the north side, so bad they drove me to the south side haha.

      If someone is legal keeping 15"+ bass, it's none of your business whether they keep 15"+ fish or not. Just walk away and leave it alone.  If you want to change the regulations, try doing it in the proper manner instead of a confrontation at the boat ramp.  I don't know how others would react, but if you approached me, it certainly wouldn't be positive experience.

      so what do have against harpooners?????  the Indians did it before us????????????   
    • Reid Saarela
      28.5, but the fattest walleye we’ve seen. My dad and I both agreed it was a bigger fish than my 30 last summer. Wish we would have weighed it but I would rather have the fish swim off healthy!

      I don't confront people on the water about what they do.  Expressing an opinion in general is fine.  Getting up in people's face is different, as I hope you agree.

      That's awesome Don. Very creative and looks like fun.
