I've fished out there numerous times during school. Sagatagan will produce good crappie and pike numbers->tip-ups won't stay down some days. Stumpf lake to the west is also a very good pike lake, I had my best luck on the dorm (east) side. I've never fished Gemini (I think that one is the campus sewage lake). Either Sag or Stumpf should produce action, and in the very least it's usually pretty peaceful out there. Good Luck!

All the lakes around campus are pretty good. Gemini is a small sewage basin that is always very productive for blue gills, craps, and a few perch. Eat at your own risk however. The little lake righ across the road from Gemini is ok as well with gills and a little better for craps. Sag is a fun lake with lots of pike and a few craps. Gills in this lake run pretty small but if you sort you can find a meal. Lots of bass as well. Remember, no motors on any of these lakes, including augers. I hear they are cracking down on this because of frequent violations. Good luck!

Anyone fish Achman Lake, which is in that area? I want to take the kids fishing for some Northerns. My son got a new tip up for X mas and he's itching to catch something on it.

I fish this lake from time to time and it can be real good for slimers and bass. The slimers run small but you can catch many if you hit it right. There are also craps and gills in there but I still have not figured them out in the Winter. Its a VERY clear lake (one of the cleanest in MN from what I hear) which makes sight fishing a blast, the kids will love it! If you are looking for some fast action for the kids, I would take them over to Gemini. The gills bite all day long and there is decent size to them. It is a waste water storage area however, so eat at your own risk! Good luck!

Thanks jlm,

If the northerns on Achman aren't cooperative we might have to go to Gemini and try for some Gills. The kids don't care much about the size, they just want action and I plan on throwing em all back anyway.

      I got a good idea........maybe have a couple more beers and not worry so much about your neighbors. In fact invite them over for a dinner and a beer and discuss your issues...that's how my neighborhood settles issues.  Man to man...works out pretty good....

      Send him some literature on CWD. Like FishingCT mentioned, disease spreads at common gathering points where deer may rub noses. CWD, for example, spreads through a prion or protein that can spread this way.  This spread of disease is an example of why disease in raised herds is such a big deal.

      Feeding deer, especially in the winter, is a really good way to spread disease. Maybe you won't have to worry about them as much next winter after all

      Because I'm sure he was serious about Molotov cocktails.  Is there an eyeroll button?

      I agree with your neighbor , it isn't a big deal , your grass will grow back , and my guess is with the spring rains , all poop pellets will disintegrate and be totally gone soon , if they are not already gone ..  my question is what the heck are you planning to do with Molotov cocktails ?  If I saw you toss one at the deer , I would be calling that CO , and he WOULD have something to write YOU a ticket for . .  And if you flung one onto my property , well let's just say you would have a big issue to deal with yourself ,, that would be me !!! My suggestion is to just relax ..

      Fence and pressure from the neighborhood is your best best until there is a law against it. Good luck.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.
