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.

On the last day to target predator species during this Ice Fishing season I went out on Lake Vermilion. I setup for the morning on a break where I usually catch Walleye's with a few Yellow Perch mixed in but on this outing I caught mainly Jumbo Perch! Plus one bonus fish that took me over 4 minutes to get up the hole...
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]

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!
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.

By Wanderer · PostedHeat can cause some issues. Like an old PTO on a lawn tractor that won’t engage after it’s been running, then shut off, then turned on again. Having to wait 2-3 hours to get it to engage again tells you it’s time at least adjust it but plan on a replacement soon.
By Tom7227 · PostedI can't figure out how enough heat would form to cause a problem. What part could be getting hot? That sort of makes sense but then it will start and quit again quite quickly. I don't know what engine it has and that's a problem with it. Finding the parts is troublesome even with Jack's Small Engine.
By delcecchi · PostedThe not restarting for hours.... Could it possibly be an ignition thing where as it gets hot it stops providing spark and has to cool all the way down to start again? That's the only thing besides flooding I can think of. Typically, isn't the spark on small engines produced by magnets on the flywheel going by a coil? So when it quits and won't restart, is it getting spark? And is the plug wet when it quits? Has it got the Honda motor or something else?
By Tom7227 · PostedFull throttle before I even start to spray. When trying to restart it pulls easy and I keep the wand open to assure it doesn't get backed up. I agree it has to be a fuel issue. But the tank to engine line is a straight shot except for the fuel shut off valve. When I was replacing the carb the fuel would run out of the fuel line quite a bit until I remembered to shut off the fuel line. The gas has been brand new non-oxy every time I have tried it.
By Wanderer · PostedWhen you try to restart it does it pull easy or hard? When mine has water pressure built up, it pulls hard to start. I trigger the wand to release the pressure so it starts easier. Maybe the hours for yours is due to pressure that needs to bleed off? Hard to tell not being there. I can kill mine at low throttle just by spraying. Are you running yours at a high throttle position? Again, hard to tell without hearing the RPMs of the engine. Otherwise for fuel, it could be a blockage or venting issue anywhere in the system. If there wasn’t a change in performance with the change of carburetor, the carburetor is probably not the issue. If it sat with old gas for a while something could be varnished up and the engine starves for gas until it quits. Taking hours to get enough fuel flowing again to run seems odd if you actually get to run it hard enough to spray for even a few minutes. Hearing the way it behaves would help a lot for me. I’ve had pressure washers that you’re not supposed to let idle for extended time without spraying and others like my current one that bypass just fine while it’s running. I’m just wondering if your killing it on high pressure AND low idle. Mine will die every time that way.
