I know this is late notice but I am going to hot Bald Eagle about 7 tomorrow morning and fish until the lake gets nuts with other boats, the bite dies, about 4:00 or I get bored, mainly fishing for Ba

I haven't had much luck posting on here but I'll give it another shot.  If any late season musky guys ever have room on their boat for one more, please send me a pm.  I'm fairly new to musky fishing b

If I can make it out anytime soon I will let you know I haven't had time to fish this year like in the past

I think this is a good idea. I have thursday and friday off. I usually fish tonka, chisago lakes area, or mile lacs but would be open to recommendations. walleye, bass, northern, crappie-in that order. I would rather catch one walleye over 24" than a limit of keepers. My boat or yours. This week I am taking the lady to the pond but next week or the rest of the summer/fall with a week notice I would be game. I love to troll crank after dark in the fall. I often have an open seat. email at [email protected]

Im glad someone made this a sticky. I get off Fridays at noon or i get it off. Your boat or mine (14 ft w/ 55# minnkota). I like to fish for bass but its always fun to catch a northern or a muskie. I have a very flexible schedule at work. So if its a hot muggy day out and i know there will be a storm later that night . . . You bet ill drop what im doing and go fishing!!!

Anybody got two open seats? One for me, one for my little almost-16 yr old buddy that's still learning the fishing thing? Okay, he and I are still learning.

North metro preferred... Medicine Lake possible?

Hunting for walleye, bass, pike, crappies.

Looking for this Saturday afternoon... 2-ish???

It's not the metro area, but I will be on West Battle Lake Sunday evening by myself if someone would like to come along for some Walleye action.

I'll by going to tonka this thursday for muskies. My usual partners are all busy, so if anyone wants to tag along, just let me know. i'm planning on being out pretty much all day, and it could be a tough outing as i haven't fished skies yet this year. but if you really want to go let me know, i'll check this wed night at about 6pm, so leave a number. otherwise, good luck

If anyone would be willing to take me with I would love to get out on tonka some evening since I don't have a boat. I could probably make it to the lake around 6 any night of the week. I like to chase muskie's and walleyes. I would like to compare spots I know to spots that others know. I will even bring the beer laugh.gif

Greetings. Sorry I missed that post, Daze Off, I would have taken you up on that offer in a NY minute. I recently just discovered these boards, fabulous resource, can't believe I hadn't found this before. I live in Andover, been here since 1999, grew up in Spring Lake Park, know Anoka Co. fishing holes pretty well. I had a boat & had to sell it due to a divorce, saving up for a new one, hopefully later this year. In the interim, if anyone in the NW Anoka Co. area wants some company or is willing to take someone on, I'd be only happy to oblige, and will happily contribute to bait, gas, etc.

I've discovered some nice places to fish being boatless, had a lot of fun & done pretty well on Lake Cenaiko (that trout stamp paid for itself on opening day) & the River, and I've even caught a couple of nice bronzebacks off that pier at the Rum River North county park in St. Francis. Being boatless finally got me to learn fly fishing, and I've had more fun in two weekends at Whitewater State Park than all my years backtrolling flatfish for ol' glasseye. But getting out on the open water - I'd never turn it down, and of course I have a lot of time on my hands now for fishing wink.gif

Please PM me or email for contact info. Thanks again to whoever came up with the idea for this thread - only in Minnesota!! smile.gif

I go out most weekdays usually from 2-9pm or so. Many NE metro lakes. If you have no boat.. give me a jingle.. we'll work out a time and place. (I basically target only bass.. but am willing to learn other species- or lakes I haven't tried - from you)

I don't have a boat. But I'd enjoy getting out this weekend on Sat or Sun AM from a boat. I've no qualms about getting out early. Metro area anywhere is ok by me. No picky about species.

I'm "allowed" to go fishing Friday nights around 5:30 and Sundays (usually go out around 6 or 7 am). I just bought a 17' boat. I'm pretty new to boating, had a little trouble the first time out with trailering, just have to get used to it. Anyway, I usually have extra seats. I love to fish for anything, but am new to fishing from a boat. Anyone wanting to go out and learn together or show me some tricks are welcome. I live in St. Paul, so like to try lakes within a decent distance from the house. You can email me at [email protected] .

      I don't think anyone will even mess with you no matter how early you head down there. Right now its like a ghost town in the morning. In the summer I have been down there before sunrise to shoot photography and no one has ever said boo to me. I do believe its 6:00 AM on the street and in the parking lots.

      well gentlemen, i got my fires under control and moved, but i woke up this morning feeling pretty tough.🤒🥴 i waited till this afternoon to decide but unfortunately i need to bow out tomorrow. 😪 with the current status of things 😷😷 i do NOT want to risk giving this to anyone else. i'm certain its just a head cold but not taking chances...... i feel pretty rough.   sorry guys i was really, really looking forward to fishing with you guys, and didnt want to wait any longer letting you guys know..........good luck, have fun. i'm sure there will be other opportunities before ice goes away!!!!!!🤧
    • smurfy
      yea maybe!!!!!!!🤣🤭

      Maybe it’s her that can’t be trusted, eh? 🤣

      I fully agree that lakes go through cycles but that negates nothing I said.  MNs best walleye fisheries are that way because they have a slot.  Rainy, Winnie, Leach, Mille Lacs, and Red were destroyed and the slots brought them back.  Lake of the woods a slot was put in before it got depleted and that fishery is awesome so easy to catch a limit there and a great mix of small fish and jumbos...just a matter of time for other lakes.  Can you be more specific what lakes you are referring to that have just large fish and no slot?  If it is not one of the well known lakes be careful if you name it here its fished out in 3 years if it does not have a slot guaranteed.
    • leech~~
      Fun looked like you guys a blast!  👍
    • whateverisbiting
      I don't think it will impact anything... but I also agree it is dumb.  It's not logical that I can buy it on line sight unseen but need to be present at a store. 
    • Mike89
      they are a team!!!     
    • walleye101
      Minnesota's best walleye fisheries are anything but stable populations. These populations are constantly cycling with new robust year classes recruiting to the fishery every few years. Harvest of excess spawning stock actually stimulates frequent strong recruitment. The closest thing we have to stable walleye populations are lakes dominated by old fish with low to moderate recruitment replacing natural mortality from the aging population. 
    • smurfy
      In other words, she don't trust you in any store alone???🤔😅🤭
