MN river around Bloomington

Recommended Posts

Ok I know this may be a little early but I have basicly just moved to the area late last summer and I was wondering do many people fish the MN river? What type of fish? I have a small boat. How is the walleye fishing? Any others to target? Thanks for the help. Dave

I have wondered if there were any largemouth or smallmouth bass in the Minnesota river. I can't wait to see who replies to this one. smile.gif

Cats, Carp, Sheephead, And Walleye at certain points of the year. Good area to just throw a crawler on a hook and see what bites.

So how far up or down river do I have to get to find "good" fishing? or isn't there any in the Minnesota?

I just wonder where one can fish from shore along there...There doesnt seem to be any public shore places.

Sup. there is an exit off of 35W at the river. There is an outlet that goes into a small lake "Black Dog". I have seen many people fishing from there. On the other side (North) of the river is the public landing. It is at the end of Lyndale ave. I just drove down there today.

Too many years ago I used to fish from shore the spot you're talking about. You never knew what was going to be at the other end of the bite. Cats, sheepshead, carp, pout, dog fish, sauger, walleyes and pike were all in my bag. Never kept anything for the plate though crazy.gif

I tried by black dog once and snagged twice very bad tryign to keep the lure on the bottom. I need to try a different spot or something as there are some serious rocks or cement that were dumped in there. I think a boat would help a lot but you just need to try it out and see where you can catch fish.

I think that river changes a lot every year right?

Also always be extremely cautious as we have lost a few sportsman in accidents on the river especially on that stretch by where the barges sit.

      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner

      Never heard of that in all my years! They look delicious! I take my dad to Rainy Lake ever June for his birthday and do a nice shore lunch. Walleye wings will be on the menu this year! Thanks for the thread!

      What do y’all think a week from now? Will Duluth be fishable from the boat. A lot of ice around right now. Might have to wait yet rather stay around Duluth than drive another half hour to two harbors.

      Will Green be ice free for Govenors opener?
    • Bigfatbert
      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
