Anyone got any place that they would like to share with me to catch walleyes from shore. That is good anytime of the season.
Preferably public land. I've got bad hips and cant be lifting my canoe any longer, so Im stuck to fishing on the shore. If you have
any ideas of places let me know. Id be grateful for the advice.
Minnesota or North Dakota advise welcome.
Oh, Ill be fishing at night mostly. Ill be using live bait, Chubs and leeches.

We know everyone is waiting for River updates....We haven’t made the 120 miles round trip to International Falls to check yet. Grants Dad does drive that way once a week and when we know more we will let you know. We are hoping to have a report in a few weeks as there is quite a bit of ice on the river still.

As of Wednesday there was no improvement on the river opening up. The temperatures have not been that warm with very little melting happening. Also the we have had some pretty cold nights in the single digits and low teens. This coming week looks like we should have warmer weather so hopefully it will get things moving.
In preparation for mt first trip to the Boundary Waters, I decided we might need a good, lightweight fish cradle to land the giant pike we're so sure to catch there. I shopped around and decided I could make one as good or better than what was available. After buying the materials needed, I ended up with enough to make more of them than my group needed. I'd like to trade for hook remover, jaw spreader, lure packs, or most anything useful to some rookie pike fishermen. I'll consider just about anything.
I discovered just recently that the May Township Board in Washington County MN is holding a public hearing on whether or not to block access to a public body of water from a public right a way. Stillwater is the county seat of Washington County. Specifically they want to stop you, hunters or fisherman from using Carnelian Creek to access Turtle Lake. This was brought to the attention of the May Township Board by the Carnelian-Marine St Croix Watershed District. When I talked with Jim Shaver, Administrator of the Watershed district, he said that the property owners that surround this creek and lake contacted him about hunting activity and potential trespassing on private property. The owners are also concerned about their animals that they have and dog trials that they hold on the property.
Jim Shaver also told me that the Watershed District is concerned that if someone got hurt using that waterway, that the Watershed District would be liable because the Watershed District improved the creek so that the water would drain from Big Marine Lake through this creek, eventually ending up at the St. Croix River. I do not believe that the Watershed District has any liability.
Jim Shaver said they then went to the Township Board with their concerns and the town board drafted an ordinance blocking access from a public right a way to a public water way.
I spoke with Bill Voedisch who is the May Township Chairman and he told me basically the same thing plus that the Watershed District is concerned about damage to a structure that is in the creek.
The public water is Carnelian Creek that flows out of Big Marine Lake into Turtle Lake. The location would be in May Township of Washington County. This is on 155th Street North just east of Manning Ave North. Manning Ave North runs north of Hwy 36. 155th Street is approximate 5 1/2 miles north of Hwy 36.
So, May Township is having a public hearing on March 1st at 7 PM at town hall, 13939 Norell Avenue North, Stillwater MN. If you can make the meeting and make your thoughts known that would be great. I can not be there as I will be out of town but the Township Supervisor told me that I could submit a letter expressing my concerns and it will be include. So if you can be there come, if you can't, you can submit a letter by email. Below is the contact info for the Chairman and the other two Supervisors.
May Township Board Chairman, Bill Voedisch-Chair, 651-433-5976, [email protected]
John Pazlar-Supervisor, 651-433-5013, [email protected]
John Adams-Supervisor, 651-430-8134, [email protected]
Here is the contact info for the Administrator of the Carnelian-Marine-St. Croix Watershed District and website.

Thanks for your help.
When January 27 9 am
where Blue lake
crappies are the target but I can point to other kinds of fish.
please bring treats and this for people of all ages.
Does anyone know if there are any fish in the East Branch of Raven Stream? It's in the town of St Benedict, just north of New Prague? I'm thinking of buying a bit of land that happens to have this stream running through it, but I would only want it if there fish in the stream. I'm not too proud, it doesn't need trout in it, panfish and bullheads would suit me just fine. :)
Anybody familiar with this stretch of water?
Thanks in advance for any replies!
Good afternoon guys,
I live in Burnsville and I was wondering if anyone has had much luck on Crystal Lake for bass and Pike? I've fished it a few times and only caught 2 bass in a total of 8 hours.
Not looking for any specific locations, but any tips would be much appreciated!!!
Live bait? Plastics? Troll cranks for pike?
thanks guys, have a great day.
Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off and a little bridge that goes over the inlet.
Its off of east river road at the end of 79th. I believe its called riverview heights park.
My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them.
It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish.
if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now?
I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

By monstermoose78 · PostedI heard some divers are showing up so I will go try for those
By Wanderer · PostedKeep looking and sooner or later even a blind squirrel finds a nut.
By Wanderer · PostedVery, very few ducks in Ely today. 4 grouse seen with only 1 coming back to camp. I literally saw more fish today than birds. And I skipped the fishing gear this time! 😒
By monstermoose78 · PostedFinn and I hiked the river in Sherburne and only saw 5 swans. 1000 cranes and not one duck or goose. Saw some guys looking in the grass and they said they dropped a woodduck and Finn found it for them. Boy Finn was mad when I gave them the duck.
By JBMasterAngler · PostedFished Black Brook Flowage (Apple River) today. This is my kinda lake! Very few houses, small little boat launch. Only caught 2 little pike. Missed a small Muskie, and seen a mid 30’s hovering under the boat. Was tough dealing with the wind, but I like this place. Fishing below the dam with waders is a possibility also.
By LakeofthewoodsMN · PostedOn the south end... A really good week of fall walleye fishing. Big numbers of fish being caught. It should only improve as water temps get cooler. This fall has been unseasonably warm. Big numbers of walleyes and saugers are set up along the south shore and anglers are catching a lot of fish. Most anglers are anchored up and jigging with a fathead or emerald shiner. Live shiners are available and effective. There are still a lot of walleyes being caught on spinners with minnows surprisingly. Trolling crankbaits has also been catching a lot of fish. The best reports are coming from 18-28 feet of water across the south shore in areas such as Pine Island, Morris Point, Zippel Bay, Graceton Beach, Long Point and Rocky Point. Various schools within these depths. In addition to walleyes and saugers, pike, jumbo perch, sturgeon and even a few crappies are in the mix for walleye anglers. On the Rainy River... Emerald shiners continue to run in the Rainy River and more and more walleyes are entering the river each week. Fishing has picked up but most believe when water temps reach the 40's, it will get even better. Currently, temps are in the low 50's. Jigging with a frozen or live shiner, is the go to method. Emerald shiners are tough to beat this time of year. Some reports of big fish being caught, but not in big numbers... yet. Sturgeon activity continues good. A gob of crawlers and/or frozen shiners on a sturgeon rig (18 inch leader made of 60lb test, circle hook and a 2-3 ounce no roll sinker) is the ticket. The catch and release season continues through April 23, 2022. Up at the NW Angle... Fall fishing up at the Angle continues to be excellent. Most anglers are using a jig and minnow or jig and plastic. Some strong reports with warmer than normal water of spinners with a minnow or plastic being the hot bait. Gold, pink and/or glow colored jigs and spinners are doing well. Reminder, no live, frozen or dead bait being able to be transported over the border from the U.S. into Canada, consequently anglers boating into Ontario waters reporting various plastics on their jigs and spinners working great. Various areas of structure such as points, reefs and sandy areas in neck down areas continue to hold good fish. 12 - 26 feet is the range depending upon the spot. Big crappies are in their fall spots and being caught on jigs and minnows in 25-30' around various structure. Muskie anglers report good fishing overall. Trollers reporting mixed results. One day is great, the other not so much. Covering water trolling is a strong fall muskie technique and should get better as water cools. Travel to and from the Angle via vehicle through the 40 miles of Canada is open. Boating into Canadian waters is now open. Charter boat transport and float planes are still available through the LOW Passenger Service and Lake Country Air.
