HI LADYSAM,

I can't answer your questions, but I can tell you where to go for answers. Go down to the Regional Forums and post your question in the Metro Area Lakes and Rivers. They should have alot of good ideas for you there.

I fish in the Southren Area of Minnesota. Mostly in the Waterville area thats about 45 minutes south of Minnapolis.

Its nice to see other Lady Anglers post on here. They are few and far between so please come back and let us know how your fishing is doing or if you have other questions.

The best spot I have ever fished on the Mississippi River is where the Minnehaha creek flows into the river. This is just behind the Ford Dam. You catch all kinds of fish, and you never know what you have until you bring it up. Their are a lot of big fish

LadySam,
If your willing to drive a little, try checking out the spillways across from the lock and dam at Pioneer(across form Alma Dam in Wabasha. Also in Wabasha, there are some real good back water sloughs that are(can be) hot in the spring along with the dike(sp?) road between Wabasha and Nelson, WIS.

If not the Miss, buy some waders and do some stream/river wading for trout and smallmouth down my way SPring Valley. Good luck finding shore spots. I too do not own a boat and have spent many years finding decent shore fishing spots! Keep the rods bendin'!!!

    • WinnerDinner, what do you fish for there In Ireland?  
    • Well there's that! 👍  
    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
    • They only have 2 options in life: 1 - get hunted. 2 - get ran over.
    • Crazy thing just happened to me while fishing off my dock... Was throwing a topwater, not paying attention, and SPLASH, I set the hook and nothing there. As I was reeling in to try that spot again, I heard something in the big pine next to the dock, but didn't think anything of it. Recasted and heard something again, turned my headlight on in time to see an owl heading to and then kinda hovering over my lure...  I thought that was weird... A couple casts later I hooked a small bass.... Then I lift it out of the water and as I'm reaching for it, the crazy owl swoops down and about hit me as it tried to nab my bass!!! Holy $#!+ I said out loud and decided to go up the hill before I got attacked. But not until I got pics and videos of the brave bird.  Last summer I had a very similar up close encounter with a great blue heron and a crappie, right at dusk with a heavy fog coming in... Not sure which one surprised me more!!
