Any suggestions for places to fish near Edina, SW Suburbs?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone suggest some good places around the Edina/SW area to fish? I live in Rochester but grew up in Edina but never really got into fishing until I moved. I have tried Fort Snelling Park on 494, but dont know any other places to try. Thanks

class of 97 myself - ha i have herd of addition. not seen it myself yet..... the bass pond is great! so small you would never guess there is anything in there. the story goes on of the homeowers on it is a major rep for rapala and has the lake stocked with bass. anyway i dont think there is anyway to get to it without tresspassing nor do i think anyone would be happy if i gave you directions on here. but if you want to leave your email i will be happy to let you in on it.

After thinking about it, I believe I know what you are refering to. Does this pond connect to the 9mile creek? If so my buddy's parents live right back there and I have actually fished that before then. I'm trying to recall the names of any seniors that I knew when I was a soph. but cant.

I've lived in south minneaplis and then edina pretty much all my life, there is a lot of fishing close by. The Minnesota(i like the black dog area) and Mississippi(pool 2) River's are both within a short drive. The MPLS chain of lakes(calhoun, harriet, cedar, isles,nokomis, hiawatha, the minnehaha creek) isn't too far either. A short drive to eden praire will put you in around a lot of good smaller lakes(riley,staring,mitchell,round,etc etc, looking at a map and then checking the dnr site is a good way to check out these type of lakes). And then Bloomington's got a few(bush,normandale,hyland). There are also some smaller lakes/kids ponds like cornelia and taft if you've tykes to take along. There is a lot of fishing to be had in the area.

      I am looking to start a line this year since I travel 50 miles o e way for work. Looking for any advice and tips. I have some state land I would like to set on. Mostly mink and rats I believe are my targets. Thanks in advance

      Good pics have been hard to come by.  But...   Yes, these are water pics mainly but we’ve hunted fields too. The field hunting has been tough for us with the size of crew we have and the age mix.  Good times; good people.   Besides, a guy that likes divers needs a little water tossed in.  I saw my bucket list can but wouldn’t water swat him to claim him.  Didn’t get a chance at him on the wing.

      Nice! Thx for sharing.  I have so many weird stories like that and it's nice to hear another strange one!  Great story and memory.

      Tough conditions this morning. Got tired of picking up decoys that were tipped over.  Post some of your waterfowl hunting pics Leech.

      Just so we're clear. You left this kind of harvest to drive around in 70 degree weather for 4 hours a day, why again? 😕  
    • leech~~
      Oh then your right, the DNR wouldn't be able to tell what it is until at least June!  😏  😆

      Snow?!  Hadn’t heard.  I’m still in Nodak and it’s been sunny and 69-70 degrees for highs!  Big wind yesterday but not so much today.  Birds are around but you have to look for em.  Been driving about 4 hours a day scouting.

      Holy snow!! It was coming down this morning around 8 am. Had geese flying but could not see them. Got buzzed by many flocks looking the wrong way as I could not look into the wind and snow. Had plenty close enough but never fired a shot. Off to the rifle range tomorrow with the old man.

      Well was able to get out in the kayak this afternoon as the wind went down was out for about 15 min and around 4pm while making my usual trolling pass on the green weed lines. I hooked up with a 36” 8.5lb northern! On a #6 Fire tiger flicker shad again using my baitcast rig with 30 braid. I paddled to the beech as I had no net or anyway to land it from the yak. As I was coming in my rod slipped out of my rod holder. I said ohh $&@! And figured well that’s a rough day. But for some crazy reason my rod and reel combo floated!! No sure how but it stayed right on the surface. I had no extra floatation on it either. All I can say is I think I had some special people watching over me today😉Retrieved the rod and locked it in the holder and made it to the beech and fought it the rest of the way in. By far the biggest fish from the kayak for me and one heck of a story. Well I think that was a great way to end the season.
