Mothers Lake (Taft Lake?) in South Minneapolis

7 posts in this topic

Off Cedar avenue and Hwy 62. Is this lake worthy to try for some decent Carp?

I dont remember seeing any Carp there at Taft. Your probably better off going to nearby Nokomois Lake & Hiawatha.

I live real close to Taft and all I ever caught was crappie-bullheads-and small pike.

I have not fished it for a few years now. Like said above Lkae Nokomis or Hiawatha.

G.C.

Kind of what I figured. I am planing on Nokomis on Saturday morning...

Hoping to hook into some biguns...

If you want carp in that area, across the freeway from Taft is a park that used to be airport property. Spent a lot of time there as a kid and we would pull the carp and bullheads out of there all the time, have not been there in a while, but we always called it "the Swamp", worth a try.

Hope

Lake Nokomis try the far SW side, or SW of the bridge in that corner. I have gotten few way back when from that area and I do see a few people fishing that area.

I have fished Taft. There are carp, but they're small ones. I've caught them up to 2 pounds. Nokomis and Hiawatha are far better.

    • Well, they did throw in the Bridge to Nowhere booby prize, so that should make it all better..
    • I hear you, but all the folks ranting and raving on here would not take to kindly to a bunch of arm chairs telling them how to do their job... that I know.  It is great as a public to be informed, but to think we are more equipped than the experts to handle it, just isn't so.  It is a crappy situation no doubt, but constantly criticizing and/or deciding we are going to do it our own way, isn't going to help it, in my opinion.
    • Thanks for the heads up man I was looking at Garmins but I feel like the only ones I saw with SI were way out of my price range ha
    • I need to make a beer run the fridge is getting low up in here.   #rentfree
    • What does everyone use? decoy string mono braid thanks.
    • LOL!  The truth of the matter is, CWD is widespread across the country and I believe in only one state, somewhere out west, has it caused population level decreases.  The DNR has no choice but to try their darnedest to eliminate it.  If they don't and it becomes widespread, they will be ridiculed to no end.  If they try to fight it, they will still be ridiculed when they fail to eliminate it, but at least they tried.  IMVHO, it is here, just like the invasive species continuing to spread in our lakes.  There is no way to eliminate it.  But as I stated, it won't significantly impact deer numbers in the state.  The disease will kill far fewer deer than the efforts to get rid of it will.  It is mainly the health issues to worry about.  But I've been wrong once or twice before.
    • Was Hillarys plan to help rural America much like Obama's and Rick Nolan's? Wait for an industry to collapse then push for tarriffs a year after the fact and claim victory?
    • Kinda like how Trump is the grand wizard of the klan because he hasn't  denounced every supporter he's had well enough.
    • Regardless of where you put that fan you'll still need another fan of some sort to circulate the air around the house. The heater one only get the air out and off the heat exchange. Put one or two more in the upper corners blowing the air back down. Hugger style ceiling fans if you have room are the best. The blades need at bare minimum 4 inches and most experts say 8 inches of clearance to the ceiling. I'm at about 4 1/2 and it works fine.
