Reshanaur Lake

Recommended Posts

windycity

Can anyone confirm that Reshanaur Lake in Lino Lakes has a fishable population of Northerns and/or panfish. The latest DNR survey is from 1992, so I'm looking for more recent confirmation.

Thanks in advance

I have wondered that about all of those shallow lakes in that chain, not quite sure if Reshanaur is directly part of it but it has similar characteristics, shallow flat basins. I would think they hold up alright in the winter considering there is flow through the whole chain. I know that last 5 or so years has been fairly forgiving on shallower water which is a good amount of time for multiple species to plump up if the water is good. It would be worth a shot in my book. May take a few times with all of that water to check out up there.

Hey Windy,

I have a brother that lives on the lake. Once in a while people get northerns and occasionally a good sized one. Worth a shot if you're into exploring as much as fishing--otherwise there are better options.

Give it a try; you might be surprised!

Thanks for the info..... the plan is to set some tip-ups this winter. Send me an e-mail at [email protected] and I'll reply after I've had a chance to fish it.

There is a park access on the west side of the lake. I talked to the DNR guy for the area a few years back about the fishing and he didn't have much to say about it or the chain. He said there are a few northerns taken every year but other than that he didn't know much. I have never seen anybody actually fishing the lake. I know people fish the channel under the bridge going to the golf course, but I think it is a lot of carp. I live close to the lake and have always thought about bringing the house out there and trying it, but I can always think of a better, proven place to go.

      Now is the time to talk with kids about the dangers of ice. Ice thickness varies greatly on lakes, ponds and rivers throughout the state. Some water bodies have none, while others have several inches, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.  “Ice, especially early ice with snow cover, is extremely deceptive because you can’t see dangerous cracks or the thickness of the ice under the snow,” said DNR Conservation Officer Adam Block. “Parents need to teach their kids that ice is never 100 percent safe. If your child is near the ice, you should be near your child.” With many children out of school for holiday breaks, they may look toward newly forming ice for entertainment. “In addition to checking conditions locally and being prepared with an ice safety kit, anyone recreating on ice should be wearing a life jacket or float coat,” said Lisa Dugan, DNR recreation safety outreach coordinator. “A life jacket is the one piece of equipment that increases your odds of not drowning from cold water shock, hypothermia or exhaustion should you fall through the ice.” Ice safety guidelines
      No ice can ever be considered “safe ice,” but following these guidelines can help minimize the risk: Always wear a life jacket on the ice (except when in a vehicle). Children should never be unsupervised around ice. Caution children to stay off ponds, streams, and other bodies of water. A thin coating of ice on a pond or lake does not mean it is safe. Check ice thickness at regular intervals – conditions can change quickly. Before heading out, inquire about conditions and known hazards with local experts. Avoid channels and rivers. The minimum ice thickness guidelines for new, clear ice are: 4 inches for ice fishing or other activities on foot. 5-7 inches for a snowmobile or all-terrain vehicle. 8-12 inches for a car or small pickup. 12-15 inches for a medium truck. Double these minimums for white or ice covered with heavy snow. For more information, visit mndnr.gov/icesafety and mndnr.gov/boatingsafety. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Prods, Thanks for becoming a recent member of this site.  I never give out that information online.  There are too many people who strictly fish a lake because someone said something on a facebook/online post and everyone hits the lake and destroys the lake.  I was fishing north of DL though on a very large lake that is relatively shallow.  Its a fun lake because not many people fish it but it has multiple public accesses on the lake.  Fishing has been relatively good on the lake and a buddy has been out there filming a few youtube videos also from there.  I plan on going out again on Friday earlier to see if they bite during the mid day.   I'll give you this information though its on a mid lake point fishing out from the weed line.  Its a muddy/silty bottom and the fish cruise the bottom and I'm assuming feeding on blood worms and that is why the soft plastic worked so well.  According to Navionic's there is a "hole" of 13-14 feet that isn't that big where our houses were set up.

      Didn't venture out myself, but saw 3-4 people ice fishing on Alimagnet Lake that borders Burnsville and Apple Valley on Sunday.  I thought they were nuts, but nobody was swimming.

      Will have another ice report on Linwood Wed. afternoon. walking out with my chisel to really check it out.
    • BobT
      Colleague tells me there's about 3" or so of ice. Check it regularly to be sure.
