Greetings and welcome to the Fishing in the Neighborhood (FiN) fishing report. We hope this addition to the FiN web page helps you catch more fish. This report will be updated periodically and will highlight fishing at FiN Ponds during the year. We'll offer tips on what's biting, bait, and provide weekly FiN pond stocking information.
It is now officially late season ice-fishing time in the Metro area. Northern pike, walleye and bass are now all closed to fishing, but you can still target sunfish, crappie, perch and channel catfish. Many of the FiN ponds are ideal locations to target these species. Ravine Lake in Cottage Grove Ravine Regional Park has been producing sunfish, with some up to 7.5 inches long. Try fishing 3-5 feet down for the best action. Alimagnet Lake in Burnsville is home to nice sized bluegill as well as some large catfish that can really put up a fight on ice fishing gear.
Good fishing and be safe!
