twin lakes

10 posts in this topic

Wow did I have a day monday afternoon, I boated 8 the largest 28 inches and 5lbs, fat female. They were hitting rapalas and daredevils as long as it had green in it they wanted it! Talked to one guy at the landing he boated 2 over 30 inches. All were C&R'd.

Twin Lakes in Brooklyn Center/Crystal? Congrats if it was - I thought that's the dead sea. I haven't fished it in years, but I grew up blocks away.

If it was in Crystal/BC, it doesnt suprise me at all. I grew up very close also and have caught some PIKE out of there.

yes, the BC/crystal twin lakes off 100. I live nearby and figured for the holiday may be less boat traffic, which there was. I was throwing around for crappies, no luck then figured well I'll throw a rapala around and see what happens. First cast had to bring in about a 3lb northern. All together I boated 8, one hammer handle I think I caught twice. A fat female was the last one boated. Talked to a guy at the landing who put two 30+ inchers in his boat. I was solo in the boat so I was never able to get any good pics.

Where are you launching? I found the ramp off of France but no parking in the entire neighborhood.

I havent fished Twin in open water for years. But you should still be able to launch on Lower Twin at the intersect of Hwy 81 and Hwy 100. There is a little park there with an actual boat ramp with parking spots. On Upper and Middle Twin there is little to no parking. I might have to meet up with some of you guys for some pike! It would be a fun blast from the past!!

Yes, launch is 81/100 can be a little rough there, huge rut at the end of the landing, and one side of the blacktop just has a two foot drop off the side, I learned both the hard way. mad

Only got out there saturday, only landed one. Maybe some evenign this week make a night of it

    • Keep an eye on those trees. They tend to jump in the way when your not looking.    won't be the same without ya. 
    • Truth be told it was the outstate money that originally built the metro into what it is. Without that funding St Paul would be nothing more than St Peter is today. 
    • Can't argue with the last part
    • I wonder if a person gets an extended warranty if that will help?  I have a 2011 with 5.3 silverado and all is good today so I'm thinking og looking into that.
    • My last kayak adventure was less than stellar wound up in the drink. And it was a cold drink at that. A very memorable paddle up to that point. It was the first time I had ever been on the water with snow on everything. It was awesome.    Alas, my 'yaks are all put up for the season now. Waiting for next years adventures to begin. 
    • I am toying with the idea of doing a little calling this weekend. The moon is nice and dark, so the first and last few minutes  of daylight might make something happen. It all depends on what I stumble into for sign. The majority of the deer hunters have been done for a while, so the free meals are going to be getting harder to come by. 
    • The fans I was talking about are 12 volt and only 1" deep. Putting them under the heater might not do the job because the heat from heater rises. If you have room in the lower cabinet on your heater you could mount one fan inside and blow the heat out the grill on the front of the heater.
    • I thought last night's game was surprisingly entertaining considering how low scoring it was for most of it. Not sure if people outside of MN and TX would agree. Rudolph dropping that ball in the end zone was devastating - IMO it was a bigger play than the final one. As much as I hate to see us continue to lose, I honestly have never seen a team lose so many starters at key positions and still be competitive. Says a lot about our coaching, depth, and players buying in.   Will be interesting to see what we can do with our OL without having a 1st rd pick this off season. As others have said, it wouldn't be a bad strategy to use every draft pick we have on the linemen.      
    • Yes. Unlike you I have a job and a life.   I'll just say that whatever it's about you are right because that's the only thing I could ever say that you would possibly agree with me on. I won't get in the way of your libertarian fantasies.
