Hunting Areas around the metro.

Recommended Posts

shooter26

Looking for some ideas from you guys of where to do some weekend morning hunting, pass or out of a boat. Looking at a 60 mile radius around the North Metro.

I’m not looking for anyone’s secret spot, just a place to get out a few more times during the season with my brother in law.

Please reply to this post or email me @ [email protected]

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Jay

Well shooter26 it looks like no one has given you a hint so here it is and this aint no secret but later in the year this lake is ok to hunt not too many people out it is called Pelican Lake just south of Monticello, it is an excellant waterfowl habitat lake the DNR has an access on the northwest end most of it is probably froze by now, early in the year I wouldnt even bother, many years ago when I was new to the area I went scouting to see where people go hunting, I usually scout on opening weekend because there is allways too many hunters out but that way I can see where people hunt, anyway when I went there on that opener I counted about 70 rigs around the main landing but later in the year especially after deer opener you might be the only one to four parties out there, good luck.

Shooter,

no one really likes to answer these, but I will. Diamond lake in Dayton is a OK spot. You will need a boat, can be very busy sometimes. There some good spots down by lakeville and jorden. WMA's down there, you find them on the DNR web site under rec. compass. Also, car load avery is ok but busy. There is a wma out in french lake township. It's near buffalo. I used to hunt it, no one is ever there. pretty good spot. also can find it on the dnr's web site. there are also a few lakes in north anoka and some by wiconia that are pretty good also. finally, crooked (creek, road river ?) wma just outside of st. franis is good, but can be very busy. good luck

      How was the trip? I was on the lake Tuesday and the weather was as good as it gets!

      For those looking for some decent perch they seem to be hanging in the reeds chasing crawfish and minnows.   Some real dandies in there if you're in the right patch of reeds.  Not many out on the flats yet.

      Been a tough bite the last couple days for me. Catching a few here and there but no consistency. Caught fish on crawlers leechesand jigging raps but for the amount of fish I’m graphing not near enough catching All my bigger fish have came on the jigging raps. How is everyone else doing?

      Tried my luck on Lory lake for some pan fish. trying to catch a meal. didn’t find any sunfish over 7” and a few 9” crappies. Not what I was expecting hoping for a little better. Might have to try a littler bigger lake for some better results.

      Mmmmmmm~~~~ here's one for ya! For years we have been trying to get our fave Mayfly Rafts & Spikes into a booth at The State Fair. Rafts = ~~~  Honey Waffle coated with Dark Chocolate Glaze n Peanut Butter then sprinkled with Frozen Real Maple Syrup dipped Mayflys.  To die for. Spikes  =  ~~~ Deep Fried Triple Thick Cut of F&D Smoked Bacon dipped into Smoked flavored Pancake Batter an dipped in Maple Syrup then rolled in pile of frozen Hickory smoked MayFlys. Both Killer Pak~ons seved on a stick or in a Deep Fried Walleye Belly Fillet. Power good experience that takes you places you never been before'!! : )   Keep on rocken!   T

      I bet one of those little cans of cat food would work too.

      @cherokee muskie-mike is spot on the dog food... When I use to camp at hoodoo point campgrounds I tend to use nightcrawlers if I have any to spare (in a minnow trap). Caught too many rusties while fishing.
