Pond North of Foster

Recommended Posts

Anyone ever fish the gravel pit pond just north of foster. I think it's still private unless there is a new owner that would let a guy in there.

This topic came up at the last uplr event. Yes it is still private, and it doesn't sound like they are letting anyone in. I could be wrong, but that is what I heard.

last i heard it was pretty stitched up due to liability reasons like if someone drowned back there. I don't know that was just the word on the street. i don't think anyones chances are good of fishing that hole. let us know how it goes if anyone get were to someday have the opportunity to get out there though. ike

i have been very lucky to have been invited out to fish this pond three times this winter, and have gotten to know some of the people that manage the area, because of liability reasons it is very much private, and from what ive heard from these guys is that the ice can be very inconcistant due to springs and the fact that there still taking gravel

When I lived in Rochester when I was younger I used to live close to there. Every once in a while, while fishing the Zumbro behind it I would sneak in there and fish. I remember catching pearch and some monster slabs when I fished it. There was also a pile of largemouths, one night just before a storm I bet I caught about 30 of them up to 3lbs and because back then all I knew how to use was a spinning rod with light line I broke off a couple I know where much bigger. The biggest I ever weighed out of there was 5lbs exactly. Its been quite a few years since then, I know better than to sneak into ponds now. But I have to admit it was worth it. I would love to take a canoe back there if I could ever get permission to fish.

The last time I was there it was so grown over that I couldn't hardly get to the water and cast. I do remember that I couldn't wade around the lake because there were some serious drop offs often within inches of the bank.

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.
