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.
