Lakes with motor restrictions

12 posts in this topic

Anyone know of a list of lakes that have motor restrictions on them? Anyone know any decent lakes around the metro that are good for kayaks/canoes?

Phelan in St. Paul allows electric motors only, and it fishes rather well. I believe most, if not all of the lakes within the city limits of Minneapolis and St. Paul are electric motor only.

Check out the respective city or county government webpages.

Nokomis, Isles, Calhoun, Harriet and many more on the Minneapolis side of the river.

In fact, all the lakes within the city of Minneapolis are electric-only. And believe it or not, there are some pretty good fish in all those lakes. I got a nice 25" 'eye out of one of them last night.

Also, if you look on the DNR HSOforum, somewhere with the boating regulations, you can find a list (I believe it's by county) of lakes with "surface use restrictions." It'll tell you which lakes have motor or horsepower restrictions, which is pretty handy.

Was that you I saw last night in the kayak? Even if it wasn't, as I was biking around the city lakes I saw someone pull in a really nice fish out in their yak.

Its amazing what you can find when you get off shore and away from the bucket brigades. There are still some good fish left.

I was in my beat-up red Coleman canoe last night. Caught a nice one, too...

I did see a guy in a really sweet yak last night. Rigged up real nice, with one of those kick-drive things... Not bad at all.

All the lakes in the city of Eagan have motor bans. Electric only and some of these small lakes contain huge bass.

    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!
