Good bites from shore in the north metro?

Recommended Posts

I don't have the boat out of storage yet, but my buddy is antsy to try out the new rod I got him.

Are there any good bites from shore or from the DNR piers and what to use?

Thanks,

Mojo

Head over to the Chisago area for some good panfish & crappie action.

North Center has a fishing pier at the access, I've always done well with crappies there. Now that they reconstructed the channel between north and south center lakes I think there's alot more shoreline open to fishing as well.

was screwing around from shore with one of the micro raps, 1.5" long, the other night. unfortunately, i was using my son's small panfish pole. whatever i hooked, hit pretty hard and then started swimming out to deep water. couldnt turn its head no matter how much pressure i put on it. finally, in desperation i thumbed the spool and leaned back with about 10 yards left on the reel. the lure popped out and that was that. figure it was a lethargic marchetty that never knew he was hooked. figure a pike would have made a faster run. of course i could have snagged a carp or something, but i like to think there was something else on the end of the line. it makes the story alot better. cool.gif

Slipperybob, what do you catch below the dam on peltier? I fished there once on Dec. 25 with a bobber, in open water, trying to get a big pike we saw swimming. Never got him smile.gif What else is in there? I assume whatever is there spends most time in George Watch?...

Thanks,

Lot's of bullheads, but...there's

sunnies, largemouth bass, crappies, and definitely a lot of pikes, and loot of carps.

Oh yeah, and sometimes good size perches 11" but mostly runts 4-8"

I haven't gone there this year yet.

      Pepin is natural feature of Mississippi, not man made.   Seems the Chippawa dumps a lot of sand in that causes the mississippi to back up, forming lake pepin.  But the ice going out on pepin is probably due to runoff starting and raising the river level and flow as much as anything.    If I were to compare stuff I would look at average temp for Virginia in march and april of those late ice years compared to this year.  Throw in May for good measure.

      I can not remember the starting dates on those years but Brent would know! Cliff

      Like they say down in Loosiana, you pinch tail and suck the head.   And when they eat them, looks like they dump a bucket full on some newspaper on a picnic table and have at them.    But they still hadn't made it all the way west as of last summer, and I figure getting stopped with a cooler full of rusties heading home from the east wouldn't look good on my permanent record.... One of these years though.   I hear they are west of oak narrows now.

      Yes, had it on wife's iphone when that was the only smartphone in the family.   I think I would have to have one of the huge phablets to be able to see anything but I am old and don't see that well anymore, when it comes to fine detail.   But good you mentioned it since I had forgotten about it.

      some of the lake access areas might be interesting to navigate thru ad DNR is prepping the public landings

      That is a hearty fish.  I guess that is the benefit of the late winter
    • Big Red Lodge
      Good to know.  Thanks for the update
    • Big Red Lodge
      I have not heard of any either, but the weather is looking good.  I'm optimist for opener

      Thanks for your updates Cliff . Out of curiosity , if this date holds true of Monday April 30th for the start of this years event , would you happen to know how this date sits with past late ice out years , for instance 1996 , 2013 ?

      Thanks Cliff for the update, and thanks Brett for the info too!
