Recommended Posts

... two years ago i read in the outdoors news that loring pond was abundant with crappies... some even over 1 lb.

i fished it last summer... sunfish were everywhere... i've never seen that many sunfish in my life.

It's pretty shallow & may get occassionally fish kills. The stories you hear of are of old & exagerated. Best time to fish it is in the Spring when the water levels are up and the Crappies are more aggressive. Sizes will vary as their stock locally by the DNR. They are spotty and there aren't alot of them so please C&R. Loring has mostly small sunnies. Summer & fall are bad due to low water levels unless we get large amount of rain. It practically managed as a children's fishing pond. I would not ice fish it but that's just me. It is just way too small of a pond.

I have heard the same rumors. I would not eat anything out of there but I think it would be funny to see a portable set up in the middle. Would make a great picture. Let me know if you are going to go. I'd like to see that.

yeah, i thought the same thing... hell, i might do it... my fiance's little sister kind of likes fishing, and i know we could catch a ton of sunnies.

i wonder if the ice is safe in winter though?!? don't they have weird oxygen systems hooked up in summer?

Somehow I find it funny grin.gif that you guys actually want to attempt this. Even though loring supposely has a dept of 16ft max, you may want a water depth map of the pond just in case cause you may find yourself trying to drill an ice hole on 2 ft of water depth in a bunch of different spots. The pond is alot shallower & smaller in the winter than in the spring. Take a good look at the size of Loring pond and it's enough to discourage most anglers. Good luck if ya'll try it! grin.gif

P.S. Report back to us sailor shall you locate any of them green submarines!

I can assure you there isn't walleye in the pond. If there was it was probably a few stock locally by someone. I have fished Loring since I was a small kid in the 80's.

Goldfish, bullhead, sunfish & crappie are the only fish I have caught out of Loring over the years. The pond's fish population is probably 90% sunfish. Last time I fished it that was just last spring w/my little neice. There is an annual take your kid fishing program held by the DNR yearly on Loring since the pond is managed as a children's fishing pond.

      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Scaled n skin on after gut n de-head. Wash n batter n sizzle. Fork at Dorsel n whole fillet falls onto plate or butter bun or hounds mouth. : ). Mmmmm sooo good.      I dream melt ice at Nine inches per week starting today -  Pike bay be open day before opener clear out to Marauderville. Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles. Maybe weekend after opener?  All good but just miss our lil chunk of paradise x million. An lake friends n nuts.  Think warm thinks!  Thanks for letting me post some n butt in on threads a bit. Still two feet of snow here n same ice an nothing to do outside easy.  Peace...     T

      Wakemup, I also like them scaled and the skin crispy but hate all of those scales every where so I fillet them with no skin. Cliff I have not heard any news about the City Auto Glass. Pike Bay will be open to fishing. Ice being off of it will be close! Cliff

      Two additional open-house meetings are scheduled in the Twin Cities metro area to help people understand and ask questions about Minnesota’s draft statewide deer management plan. “We heard from some who wanted open-house meetings closer to home in the metro area, so we added two to the other ones in the lineup,” said Leslie McInenly, acting wildlife populations and programs manager with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. Here is the schedule for the metro area meetings: St. Paul, Monday, April 23, DNR Headquarters, 500 Lafayette Road. Richfield, Monday, April 30, Wood Lake Nature Center, 6710 Lake Shore Drive. These meetings are in addition to 35 others in which Wildlife staff will provide handouts explaining the deer plan and process, and will talk with attendees individually and in small groups. The DNR is taking online public comments on the new plan now through Wednesday, May 9, at mndnr.gov/deerplan. There will be paper copies of the questionnaire available at the open houses for those who are not able to complete it online. All meetings are scheduled from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and people can arrive anytime during the two-hour time frame. There will be no formal presentation at the meetings. Minnesota’s new deer plan sets a new statewide harvest target, increases citizen participation in deer management, and outlines ways to keep the population and habitat healthy. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Has anyone heard what they'll do about the City Auto Glass walleye tourney if the ice isn't off by May 19? Even if the ice is off....will they close Pike Bay?
