Any info for the MNPLS city lakes? Been meaning to head to them lately. Are we permitted to drive on them??? I know gas motors are prohibited in the summer.

You can't drive on Calhoun or Harriet. I'm thinking of heading out on Calhoun again soon. Got a bunch of perch last time, but not the tiny bait stealers, around 8". I'm hoping for Walleye this time.

Caught a 16" walleye out on harriet on the east side. Parked over by humboldt and 47th I think? Walked straight out and was in about 25 feet of water. Hit it right after sun down. Other than that though it was reeeeeeeeeeeeeeal slow.

All of the Minneapolis lakes are off limits to any type of vehicle or gas motor. The only thing allowed are gas augers.

Well thats a releif at least! Ok with not driving. It holds the fishing pressure down and wont spook the fish as much maybe. I'll have to give it a go! 8" perch are nice!

I wonder if you could use an electric four weel drive vehicle like one of the large kid ones, I wonder if it would be strong enough to haul a small fish house and a little gear, their wasn't alot of snow when I was out their yesterday. grin

i think it goes for all motorized vehicles, not sure though. A lot of those lakes have parking areas all over rather than just at the launch, which would cut down the walking time.

Was on on Calhoun last night. Lots of 8-9 in perch, no eyes. Water is really clear, could see the bottom at 19 fow. Saw a nice muskie swim through.

Was on the NW part of the lake twice last week: Caught a bunch of perch and 1 small walleye right at dark. Missed a really nice fish too.

what you getting the perch on? I fished Calhoun last year and only got the cigar sized perch, 5-6" tops. Excited to go exploring around the lake now that my vexilar is working

Fished Harriet afternoon/last night on the east side and got into some crappies in 9 to 15 feet of water. The flasher was marking fish nearly all night, although getting them to take the bait was tricky at times.

Any suggestions for a good starting spot on Calhoun? I haven't fished it. Usually just go to Harriet since it's only a couple blocks away.

Was on Nokomis last night. Lots of small crappies with a few 9" mixed in in 15 fow. One 16" eye as well. The water clarity is still a bit green but not to bad.

Tons of structure on Calhoun - out from the boat ramp is good, also near the channel to Lake of the Isles, although pretty much anywhere with structure and weeds is a good bet

We caught the perch on anything from small teardrops to med sized jigging sppons all tipped with a minnow in 20-24 FOW. We were targeting walleyes, but when the perch come thru they bite. Also helped to glow your jigs closer to dusk. Don't get too excited about the perch though, they were only 6-7 inchers and all went back. It's nice to have the action; just hoping to get some bigger fish.

Big Hit,

I am also a couple blocks away from Harriet (west side), and for the same reason I fish Harriet more than Calhoun. I forced my self to fish Calhoun last week and Cedar twice this week. I fished the west side of Calhoun off of the steep break and drilled near twenty holes to closely follow the drop and weedline. This area I would like to experiment more and at varying times of day......

If you want to double team a few spots on Harriet or Calhoun let me know. I have an older but serviceable 8"jiffy, so I make lots of holes and hole hop with the Marcum. I should have my buddy's old portable sometime soon, but mostly go very light. I mostly target gills and crappies for C&R (on the city lakes)

if anyone else is game, drop me a line. I have lived within spitting distance of the Harriet and Calhoun for over 20yrs, and only began to fish them during hard water last year........ (I fish them very frequently during open water though)

That sounds good. I'm using the same approach, older auger and drill lots of holes. I've been fishing out of my ground blind, but it would get pretty tight with two people. I don't mind braving the elements either.

I'm out of town today but will get in touch and look forward to it.

Anybody out on Calhoun today? Seemed quiet, there were 2 blue portables on the west side, a blue portable by the channel to Isles, and as I was leaving some guys in blaze orange by the boat landing.

I've fished Calhoun a few times and have had the best luck on the West side off the breaks. Best times seem to be before and after dusk... nothing of size though. Mostly little eye's. try experimenting w different jig and bait combos- maybe that would entice bigger fish

I was out on Calhoun this afternoon/evening. Got into a bunch of Perch again, and even kept 6 at the 9" mark. Missed a nice strike right after sunset. Lots of people out by the boat landing.

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?

      Don't forget about IP Lures just west of town about 2 miles on the south side of Co. 82.    I was out on Osakis last week for a couple hours. Picked up two walleyes, one about 13" and the other a fat 14-1/2". Also a couple northerns and a handful of perch.

      Of course, you shouldn’t even ask about this, because this is the responsibility of the executor of the order, that is, the employee who will create such an application. I think it will be stated in the contract of employment if there is one and then you don't have to ask for anything.

      Shallow. Got skunked tonight. Just got chased off by the weather. Last evening was the only time the last 4 times out I caught fish. Last even was light drizzle and calm water. Water warmed up about 3-1/2 degrees since the first time out.

      It is very important not only to identify mushrooms by their appearance but also to understand whether it is useful or not, because now there are many poisonous mushrooms, and it is extremely important that no mistakes were made in the selection of such mushrooms. That's why I here https://www.mushrooms.online/mushroom-poisoning/ read a lot of interesting information about poisonous mushrooms and was able to understand more about it. I hope that I was able to help you and was really helpful to learn.

      Nice article

      e-commerce applications always do wonders for any business so your idea is very good, someone here in this forum should be able to recommend you some good company that can help you develop the application, remember to ask them to review the application before launching it to the market, so that it does not come out with errors, if it has errors you will lose many users, good luck with your business!
    • FrankOcean
      With all that amount of guests you have, you need to create the application, yes or yes, it will facilitate communication between you and your clients, making it possible for you to answer each query, doubt and order that they ask of you, in addition to being able to charge them for your service with total comfort, try try to contact a company that is dedicated to developing this type of applications, although I cannot know exactly how much the creation cost will be, so try to have enough capital to spend
