Shakopee/Chaska/Jordan Islands

Recommended Posts

TR0PHYPHISHIN

I live in Shakopee and I was wondering if there are any islands on the Minnesota that are in the Shakopee/Jordan area. If so, where are they located?

I have a 16ft smokercraft with a 25hp. Is it safe to drive that with the water levels right now?

The river is very low right now, and many obstacles are just under the surface of the water. Even the die hard fishermen that know the river, will bounce off stuff quite a bit when it is this low. Safe? not for your boat, lower unit, or prop. Safe for you, unless you fall out of the boat after hitting something, it should be safe for you. As for the islands, there isnt much islands upstream of the Bloomington ferry bridge. Unless you consider a sand bar or rock bar in the middle of the river because it is so low, an island.

I assume this is what you was talking about, but maybe wrong. I think you could get your smokercraft up to the sand bar island thing that's out of the water in Carver. You'd have to go upstream at trolling speed probably, and you might end up having to push some, if you hang it up on the sand bar just underwater upstream from the ramp, but you'd probably eventually make it.

      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.

      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)

      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?

      Haven’t fished the river for weeks and came home to high, muddy water so I doubt I will for another week.  I’d focus on shorelines and whatever backwater I could find at this time if I did go.

      It was slow for me Tuesday afternoon and Thursday in Frazer / Smarts Bay. Wednesday was very good in 20-25 feet leeches / crawlers on a Lindy or a jig. Absolutely beautiful weather!

      My wife and I had a good morning on Friday with bottom bouncers, spinners and crawlers in 20-24 ft.  Caught 9, threw back 3 18-19 in, 2 13-14 in.

      I would head over the hill into the back country and fish the streams and lakes. You will have much better success catching fish. Bring bug spray

      Lori has some nice gills and some okay crappies normally. Green has nicer sized crappies and gills. Ann lake has been kicking out some great fish. Check out fishing club.

      Streams won’t have much of anything to offer this time of year. Maybe a couple tiny smolt rainbows. There are all kinds of shorefishing spots in the area though. Stream mouths are always the obvious spots to try. Spoons and spinners.
