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.

9/24/18 Hunted a shallow, public lake on opening day with my Dad and two friends. Hunted the same lake on Sunday with my Dad and my son Parker, on his first duck hunt at age 6. Saturday the four of us hunted from two boats. Beautiful morning. Unfortunately, most of the hunters within earshot of us started shooting well before shooting time--some fourteen minutes early. Shame on those people. We passed up on teal, shovelers, and wood ducks in the decoys before shooting time, as the law and ethics demand. We saw a lot of ducks, were buzzed and burned by many, and managed to harvest three wood ducks, two ringnecks, a shoveler, and a greenwing teal. Sunday three generations of Smutkas had teal buzzing through the decoys all morning. Lots of excitement for 6 year old Parker. We harvested four bluewings and two greenwings. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.
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.
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!
Im going to cenaiko lake tomorrow morning. Ive been there once before but got there mid day so didn't have the following issue.
Is there a way to get there before 6am when the coon rapids dam park opens?
im guessing before the park opens there is a gate at the enterance?
I want to get there around 430-5 so I don't miss the prime fishing time, being it opens at 6 that's a good amount of prime time wasted.
So my question, has anyone gone there (or the coon rapids dam park itself) before it opens at 6?
if so, how do u get in? I don't want to have to walk from the side streets all the way to the lake.
or is there a place to park closer to the lake outside the park area?
EDIT: It is okay to fish the lake before the park opens, there is a sign at the lake saying fishing is 1 hour before sunup until 11pm.
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.
I am looking for a kayak anchor for my 10 foot sit on top kayak. I chose the Scotty arm anchor mechanism that I'll mount on the back. While researching it seemed simpler than an anchor trolley. Im wondering what size/shape anchor will nail you to the floor? This is mostly for lakes. When I river fish in normally just drift. The internet has people talking about ocean tides and rivers and massive lakes. So, I'll ask you all. What works for you best on MN water? Do you have the chain too with a release mechanism? Obviously, less weight the better since it will off center. Thanks.

Well you have a few questions... lets get started😁 Rods... like bass or walleye or anything else that swims, you may or may not be able to do it all with one pole, more than one. I use a couple different types, depending on what's working.
I like a long one for fishing floats, to make those long casts. For this I chose a 7 1/2 ft, moderate action, light power.
For throwing those 1/32 -1/16oz jigs without a float I use a 6 1/2 ft ultra light, fast action... much like a light walleye rod.
A little later in the summer and into fall, vertical jigging 4-5 mm tungsten jigs comes to life. I use a shorter rod, sometimes even an ice rod for this approach.
Your line selection should match your jig size and rod type. Most of the time I will spool up with 4lb Trilene xl, If I'm fishing water with a lot of pike, I will bump up to 6, but generally go as light as you can get by with, just like ice fishing.
I find myself using plastics about 90% of the time now days. Some of favorites are Impulse 1in minnows and minnow fry, Gulp whiptails, and lil hustler 1inch tubes. Most of the time Im pairing these plastics with a 1/60 or 1/32 lead head jig. I like a little slower fall rate when fishing early panfish... later in the season, when the fish move deeper, switching to a little heavier weight jigs will do a better job.
I've never chased panfish during the open water season. I caught my first bluegill this winter, and have developed quite the crush on them. What's your go to rod, length and action? Plastics or bait? Line type and lb? Do you use a bobber? Should I use same jigs as winter or plain hook?
