Open water shorefishing

Recommended Posts

Lunker

I love icefishing, but am getting sick of staring down a hole. Is there anywhere along the river in the cities where it is open due to dams, drainage etc. where one could shorefish? And if so, what would be the best way to go about doing so?

Down by the NSP plant in Newport. I haven't been there for a while, but the water is open at the drainage from the plant. They used to allow fishing down there. That would be on the St. Croix River. You might want to check the (St. Croix River)Forum.

fubar... don't you mean upstream from Bayport? Newport is on the Mississippi. The Alan King coal plant is on the St Croix -pretty good multi-cultural - - - I mean multi-species fishing there. Just don't walk away from your gear!

The coon rapids dam is a really good bet for right now. go to the east side and you will have better luck. walleyes, crappies, northerns, catfish, carp plus many others!
good luck! ><>

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.
