Good Fishing Pier in the NW Metro

6 posts in this topic

Hey All,

I had to sell my boat last spring, and my son really wants to go fishing. Anyone know of any good lakes in the NW metro or up near Zimmerman, Elk River, Monticello Area for a good shore fishing spot?

Man I have to buy a boat again....ahhhhh

what were you looking at going after? I can give you a couple good spots on the mississippi in monticello for cats and smallies, are you can even get gills if you target them. I don't know if you want your son next to a river (age?) but the water is pretty low and slow this time of year. Theres a fishing pier at west bridge park. and at montissippi park. otherwise if you want to email me I can give you a couple more off the path places, I hate to see a child miss out on the fun of fishing. cyrillic27@hotmail.com Brad

Hey Swill, sorry to hear about the sale of your boat. Check the Open Seats forum in the metro section. I take people out all the time. My email can be found in there as well and there are a lot of others that take people out too. Sorry, not sure on the pears in that section, I know there was a decent one up on Chisago.

thanks for the replies. Never heard of open seat. My son is 6, and I think I am going to try that pier at west bridge park.

Can't wait for ice fishing, that is when I always get out a lot, and it will be easy to take my son.

Your favorite metro lake probably has a pier. Statewide Fishing Piers We're about to experience some of the better shallow water fishing of the year as temperatures drop. Take your son out to a pier and let him try hanging some bait under a bobber while you do some casting...lots of active aggressive fish and we're getting very close to the fall turnover. We've had a few of the right conditions (cool nights and windy days) so it may come quickly.

Good luck

Have you tried the pier, or shore fishing, at Big Lake? Or shore fishing on Lake Mitchell on the north side of Big Lake?

those two spots have a ton of fish to keep young ones interested, and yet there are some nice fish to be caught by "the big kids" as well!

    •   No, but they wouldn't send them all to Belle Plaine where all the bleedies will take care of them, so what are we going to do? Man your pulling everything out of the old Libertarian hang book tonight.

    •   Nice try.   You want me to rip apart your beloved Portugal?  There are hole everywhere.   First thing is first. This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets.

Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,       

    • Come on Del like any good law we have to pass it to find out what is in it.
    • If you guys (Dave et al) are so "end the war on drugs" you ought to be able to say what that means.  How can you advocate something that you can't, or won't, define?

    •   But your OK with paying for people to sit in prison?   The reason you want to keep drugs criminalized is because they are dangerous, is it not?
