so I live in plymouth and there are a few good size ponds around my house, with some nice looking lily pads and what looks to be open deeper water in the middle, how does one tell if they have fish in them or not? Is there a size that you should look for? I went to check out the one by my house, walked out on a log and fell in!! pretty funny, good thing no one was around to see...

I lived in Plymouth years ago, off 26th and Dunkirk, many of the ponds had small sunnies and bullheads in them. Fun for kids but the key word is SMALL.

You'd be surprised what are in some of these city ponds. A few years back I had my canoe out on a small pond in Dakota county and this guy pulls off the side of the road and said "you ain't gonna catch anything". Then he just drove off. Little did he know we had caught & released 20 Largemouth in a couple hour period.

Guys go to the DNR site there are many city ponds they stock with adult fish every spring so kids can have a chance to fish.its really for all to fish but mainly kids who dont get much chance to get out to the cabin!

      As crazy as that might sound, May 18th isn’t a bad guess.  We were on the lake yesterday and had somewhere around 30” of solid ice with some snow on top.  This is hard January-type ice.  No honeycombing, no chipping or slush.  In fact, my Dewalt hammer drill couldn’t take it.  It’s dead.   Another foot of snow on the way this week?  That won’t help.

      Try the area where Minnehaha Falls runs into the river up to the ford dam. I've just used jig and fathead. Been several years since I've fished down there, but saw a lot of people shore fishing there. Pretty snaggy down there.

      Never tried it down there, sounds like fun. Let us know how you did.  👍

      Entries sure rolled in when I offered the case of beer.  We could meet at my Stuntz Bay boathouse if that would work.  Close to the landing, could anchor in front of the boathouse, or could park your vehicle at by the boathouse.  Maybe we could require the winner to be present, LOL.

      Thinking about trying pool 2 (from shore) for the first time tomorrow morning, ideally looking for walleye. Anyone know any decent spots or what kind of baits I should use?   Thanks in advance

      I know the owner.  In fact we rode snowmobiles together a couple days after the fire.  He lost most of his belongings.  Sounds like it was electrical.
