That is a good idea. We probably should have a shore fishing Contest or Contests next year.

What do the rest of you think?

For you shore anglers, you really should take a look at the Shore Anglers Companion as well as the Metro or Brainerd Fishing Guides at:

yup i came up with a good idea lol , The reality is that i think shore fishing really tests your versatility and your experience,which i should add i have none but i am versatile so it would be exciting let me know if any of you think of doing this some time i probably wont catch anything lol but it would be a great experience for a beginner like me to learn from more experienced people tricks and pointers.

Well, well! Finally!

Up until a few weeks ago I have spent many hours on shore! YEs, I have rented boats and hopped on many a friend's, but shore fishing isn't always a snap.
I would be interested in helping out, at least providing some ideas for decent shore fishing spots!

One idea for a shore fishing touranment would be specie specific. Not a whole lot of shore spots, provide a BIG mixed bag of fish.
For example, one day could be for Carp, another for walleye or bass/catfish etc.

My 4 cents!

Good idea!!!!!! Not everyone owns or has access to a boat!!

HEck we could incorprate stream fishing as well! That is essentially "shore fishing".

Then I would have a chance against guys like ScottS and the like!LOL

How about down along the Lake Pepin Rip Rap. There are plenty of good spots and there is great mixture of fish. Plus these are wide spread areas so every one could be togather.

I agree that a shore tournament could be a blast ... weather it was a specific species or multi species event. There are numerous places on the rivers or even metro area lakes that could provide ample productive water, and not to mention plenty of accessable shoreline for numbers of fisherman.

so what do you all think of trying it out set a date and place and have some fun out on the water. like you all said there are many metro lakes with enough space for fisherman to have a little outing once we start something and if we have support we might just make it grow bigger and better with time. Not to mention become more competitive and develop some friendships with fellow fishermen

USPENAMC,
name the date, time and place and we'll get it on the events calendar.

We can gradually grow it. Do it just for fun this year and we can plan a little better for next year and put some money into the pot for it and possibly prizes.

Shore fishing techniques can be learned and improved this way. Also, we'll get to meet a bunch of other fun anglers.

It is a good time for sure.

If it were to be inner metro lake I would give lake Calhoun high regards. Over 90% of the shoreline is ideal *shore fishing* structure and can yeild quality to impressive fish from just about anywhere. There are also a couple public fishing piers that are in good locations. There is ample parking and plently of open areas that could be used as a "base camp".

Fall offers some fine shore fishing opportunities, big walleye feeding big time up shallow at night on many lakes or rivers.

The prize for the contest could be a new reel - to replace one of the many I've fouled up with sand on shore! Hee Hee

Local rivers and some of the metro's big round lakes would be perfect for this! I like all the ideas so far!
I'm mostly intersted in meeting some of the people I've been talking with this year on the forums, should be fun. I believe the more people you fish with, the better fisherman you become.

    • Ill let dealer plug into computer and see what shows up. 
    • Pigger steak on the grill, taters and corn. Yea yea, I get docked etiquette points for no serving dishes.
    • I suppose there is no check engine light code plug in on those like a car? Sometimes you can read and clear a misfire code. Did you try switching plugs out on the trail?
    • Had scratchers down but probably didn't matter much. Wasn't overheating and temp on gauge stayed at 160. Another guy in club thought it might also be bad gas and a misfire settting off check engine. Ill see what they come up with when they plug into computer. As far as electronic reverse lots of problems with it on internet. Fuse wasn't blown and I also bought and changed the 2 relays that people have had problems with and still nothing. I think the Servo motor crapped out as those have had problems to. I just hope it doesn't take to long to fix as spring is around the corner  
    • Wow, sorry to hear all that.I call it the Northshore curse!  Did you have your scratchers down? Or do you think it's just a short somewhere?  😟
    • it takes some practice. I was skeptical at first also but friends did great on them so made the switch and I use them 95% of the time for gills and crappies now.  Still learning
    • Made it up to Silver Bay for a ride on Saturday. Got about 15-20 miles down trail and sled starts to miss and wants to die and check engine light comes on. Shut it off and look things over and everything looks OK and not overheating. Start back up and runs fine for about 10 miles and does same thing. Did this about 4 times till we got to Trestle Inn. Im thinking its bad gas so was going to go put some premium in it to see if that helps. Start machine and put in reverse and back up and hit button to take out of reverse and nothing happens. Reverse fail comes up on gauges not good. Only good thing was stranded in Trestle Inn parking lot instead of woods. Gave guy I was riding with my car keys to come back with my truck and trailer and went and drank beer for a couple hours. Finally get everything back to motel and get organized and come back out to get some stuff out of truck and step on back of trailer and it flips up. Someone must have helped themselves to my tilt trailer pin as it would have never fell out on its own. Had to run to town on Sunday and round up a pin for trailer and dropping off sled at dealer tomorrow. At least its still under warranty.  
    • Thanks Presidents for the day off!  😁   Went back over to the same trails by Orock and hit it pretty hard to burn off some of the carbon I built up pulling the grandkids and sleigh around the other day. The trails were groomed and not bad but the groomer seemed to have put some pretty deep grooves in the trails around the corners. Never really saw that before anywhere? 🤔 There were a few folks out but no where near last weekend. My top end rebuild seems to be breaking in pretty well and the compression has been going up the last few rides so hopefully I'm almost there. 🤗    
    • I picked up some impulse mayfly plastics and mud bug jigs. I have tried plastics in the past with mixed results. I expect good things from the impulse mayflys. It would be nice not to have to mess with live bait.
    • Like Mike said, location is going to be key to giving you recommendations. The types of activities you want to engage in and price you are willing to pay can also be factors as well as how old your camper is in some instances.
