Try down at Minnehaha Falls, where the creek flows into the Mississippi. But remember to read special regulations. MISSISSIPPI RIvER vALLEY (Ramsey, Washington, Hennepin,

and Dakota Counties) walleye, sauger, smallmouth bass, and

largemouth bass: Catch-and-release with a continuous season in the

following stretches: a) Minnesota River downstream from the Mendota

Bridge; B) Minnehaha Creek downstream from Minnehaha Falls; and

c) Pool 2 of the Mississippi River between the Hastings Dam and the

Ford Dam, including all backwater lakes and connecting waters except

Crosby Lake, Pickerel Lake, Upper Lake, Little Pigs Eye Lake, and

North Star Steel Lake

Another idea is to buy a "Sportsman's Connection" Metro Area Fishing Map Guide Book. It will help you find something close to you. I have had mine for years, its a great tool for getting started. Also use the MN DNR web site for the "Lake Finder" it will tell you whats in the water.

Good Luck, hope this helped.

I'll be moving to St. Louis Park here shortly....I've heard that Bush Lake is a good place to go down in Bloomington. Is that true?

Welcome to FM. Look in the Metro Area forum as PerchJerker said. At the top you will find an "Open Seats" thread. Go in there and see who's offering rides or post and say you would like to go out with someone. There are tones of good people on this site and you will get out on the water with someone.

    • i think you have to put it over the limb and shimmy to the trunk by looping it through itself with  the help of the pole. but your right scoot I am confused too. I normally attch my to the trunk.
    • If the economy heats up, it gets down to a choice between rampant inflation or high interest rates.  The solution for the inflation of the 1970s  was to jack interest rates up into the teens.     What would interest payments be on $20+ trillion at 8 or 10 percent?  Or 12 or 14 percent?          
    • Which will lead to hyperinflation.   What will that look like? Well, we can try to print money like Del suggests but the evidence is that printing more money can actually make more problems.   http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/01/18/hyperinflation-renders-venezuela-nation-broke-millionaires.html    
    • Since Bulleit was mentioned so much, I thought I'd check for it tonight when I went to get my standards.  With all the positive reviews I went to scanning the top shelf right away.  I didn't find it till I got a little lower.  I can say I was a little surprised to see it priced at $24.   What is it that everyone likes about it?  I'm curious now.  I wasn't curious enough to add it to the tab though.   By the way, Johnnie Walker Platinum and Blue Label took top honors in the price category at $99 and $209 per bottle respectively.
    • Debt to GDP at the current levels is not much of a problem if you assume interest rates will remain low and static, but there is no reason to believe they will, considering they are presently considerably lower than average historical levels.   You fail to account for any rise in interest rates in your calculations, and that is the primary reason 100 percent debt to GDP is not prudent financial policy.    
    • T   Me too.  They get the papers all soggy and hard to light. 
    • He is still out there, at the hearing for DeVoss, proving why he needs to retire to his new 600k lake home on Lake Champlain where he can spend his days searching for Champ, the monster said to live in lake Champlain.     http://thehill.com/policy/cybersecurity/314783-assange-lawyer-conditions-not-met-for-assange-manning-extradition-offer   Almost got him!
