FishTrap and Sham Fishing

Recommended Posts

Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

The crappies have moved back out of most shallows. Will need to search for them

I think there were more boats in the shallows today on Fish Trap than there were crappies!  :lol:

 

It was a really nice day out today and we brought home a nice dinner's worth of fish.  Fat, happy, and sun burned on the couch now.

 

Surface water temps were from 58 - 64 when I was paying attention to it.

Anyone know how thick the ice is on sham? Headed up to the in-laws cabin for new year's for the 1st time this year. Haven't been up there since August. Thanks!

The only report I can give is that there was 9" in the east bay south of the access.

good luck.

Anything new that way?  I was kicking around the idea of fishing Fish Trap this weekend but went elsewhere in the area.  Been finding 14-15 inches regularly.

      Mike89 is spot on. Explore that river. Walleyes and cats can be had.

      Shore fishing can be limited. Personally I would go to the fish hatchery on Lake Tetonka. There is a spot there that produces pretty well at times.

      Good Morning everyone, The family and myself will be in Mankato July 27-29 for the MSF baseball tournament(U11).  It appears we may have down time Sat. Was wondering if  anyone could point me in the right direction to a shorefishing area I could take the family?   First time to Mankato, so no real idea where to look. Thank you.

      I hadn't hit the river in >1 month, but last night went Fishing below the SCSU dam in St. Cloud last evening and the river conditions are really quite good for July.  Water height is at a good level and the past week of dryness has improved water clarity. (...that may change today with possible rain all day in forecast) Probably the hottest bite I've ever had in the river--Pretty much everything was biting on nightcrawlers!  (there were 10 different species pulled out in <2 hours!)  Fun Evening!

      I assume you mean the 110 size one.  I have all three, the 90, 110, and 130 in different colors.  I have never had great luck using them however.  They are a well made lure and they have good plopping action, I just can't get very many bites on them.
