Normandale


Recommended Posts

Fellow Fisherman, has any fished Normandale Lake in Bloomington. I talked to a guy who claims he's caught small tigers out there in the summer. And I heard there are nice bass in there. It looks like a muck hole right now, but I'm sure tigers could get through via the creek. Either that or he's b.s'ing me.

used to get a ton of pike out of there by the falls in the spring. no with everyone keeping everything there and that area being so over fished there is not much in the spot worth fishin for. i guess there could be tigers in there as well as pure strains being hooked via 9-mile to tonka. kinda a bit of a long shot if you ask me. all we got were pike and bass - sometime a nice big snapping turtle

There is a 1992 dnr report that shows zip, but i think it's aerated now and is possible. If any, I doubt there would be a fishable population of muskies since they aren't stocked. Bass and panfish are more likely. Hyland over in that area is stocked with tigers, you might give that a try.

Yeah, Hyland is a good one. I heard those tigers love bass worms texas rigged.

Muskies are not getting in Hyland from 9 mile. My office looks down on nine mile about a block from Hyland and I can tell you nothing gets through there. There is a (Contact US Regarding This Word) and the creek was diverted underneath 494 during the construction. There are still big carp that live in there. I have thought about bringing the bow to work some day and taking a few out.

What's the fishing like in Hyland anyway. It's looks like a duck slough

so there is no water going in there anymore??? you think that would change the water level a bit.

There maybe some confusion . . . .Normandale is the "lake" on Normandale and 494 with walking trails around it. Nine mile flows in and out of the lake which was man made. Hyland is at the south end of Hyland park, not far from Bush Lake. Both lakes are OK for fishing sunfish and a few bass.

There is water that flows in but there is cement dawm that allows very little water to flow through as well as a large pipe that restricts flow

      Has anyone here had any luck on Rice Lake yet this year? All that rain a couple of weeks ago made the water level go way up and fishing opener for us was a complete bust ( although apparently someone on the lake caught a 31" walleye according to a DNR officer).   I'll be up there for at least part of the long weekend this weekend. Looking forward to some fishing. I'm contemplating targeting the bay that Morning Star Resort is on for some walleye. I don't claim to be an expert in fishing or fish behavior but it's early season so shallower seems to be better than deeper dropoffs like we would normally target during the summer. Forecasts I've seen suggest targeting bays too. Anyone have thoughts on that?   Good luck to anyone out there this weekend! Hopefully the fishing is back to normal after the weird start to the season.

      Heading up to crane Lake area. How are conditions and any tips / pointers?

      Yes indeed. We actually bought it together. We wedged the pontoon boat into that lift last fall and hoisted it out of the water. Unfortunately the water came up so much this spring, the pontoon couldn't float with the rising levels. There wasn't much that we could do opening weekend except wait for the water to drop and then assess the damage. It's mainly a garbage hauler so no big loss for a $500 boat/motor.

      I forgot to post this but I got a jake during season B north of Princeton on some private land.  I had been hunting this flock of birds for 3 seasons now.  I hear and/or see them every day, but simply could not get a legal bearded turkey to come within range.  Finally, a hen came walking out with a jake and I dusted the jake on the 4th day of my hunt.  There's plenty of birds there, including several mature toms, so I intend to keep hunting there in the future as long as I can obtain permission.  The weather was downright terrible.  I had one nice morning of sunshine and then it was windy, rainy, and raw for days.  Saturday morning even produced a heavy summer-type down pour.  I was so thankful to be hunting in a blind.  I also saw a fair amount of other wildlife in four days, including deer, pheasants, a pair of raccoons, and a coyote.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.
