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!

    • Talked to one of their guys at the Ice Show last week,  what I believe was their entry level w/ramp (like 6.5' x 12') door was over $13k.   I thought it was quite pricey with really not much for any options.  Quality appeared to be good but way more then I would spend for it.  Their biggest selling point is the light weight and pounds per square inch on the ice.   They do have  channels on the inside to run you wired through if you want to add items.   The inside was extremely bright - almost to bright for my eyes.   I believe they said they are located in Litchfield, MN.
    • I would give your first statement 5 Pinnochios.  The first tax increase on people making less than $200k he signed was only 16 days into his first term.     "1. A 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco: On February 4, 2009, just sixteen days into his Administration, Obama signed into law a 156 percent increase in the federal excise tax on tobacco, a hike of 61 cents per pack. The median income of smokers is just over $36,000 per year."       And then, of course, the big one is Obamacare, which was ruled a tax by the Supreme Court, and affects many taxpayers under $200,000.
    • Trump is way ahead of you there buddy.    
    • The only tax change that occurred was allowing the Bush tax cuts to expire. All tax bills must be introduced in the House of Representatives, so if you are unhappy with the current state of taxes, you should start there.   Also for those wondering, Clinton's tax increases would have added about $140 billion per year in tax revenue.
    • Sooooo....we were at a breaking point before Obama care....anyone actually think their policy under Trumpcare is going to reduce costs with an increase in benefits.....over an extended period of time?
    • The Art of the Deal......
    • So in a nutshell, you wouldn't really recommend buying U.S. Treasury bonds for an investment.
    • I'm not sure on how much foam it took.  It has over 2" on the bottom.  What happens with the cold surface is you have to "flash" the surface with foam then go over it again, it uses more chemical to do the same job.  So the price to do a cold house is more.  The foam comes out hot & creates more heat during the chemical reaction.     The froth paks were more expensive than having it done in my case.
