Carp Fishing Minnesota
Posted 19 July 2011 - 10:47 AM
I have recently moved to Minnesota after a long spring chasing carp in NJ. I will be located in either Chanhassen or Maple Grove- If there is anyone that can point me in the right direction or wants to meet up that fishes for carp in Minnesota please shoot me a mail. I am aware that 70% of the lakes are populated by Carp but am looking for lakes that potentially hold larger specimens 30lb+.

I'm afraid I don't know the location of those two communities. I have never caught specimen in MN but lots of carp. That can be a problem. To many carp for specimen to occur.
That's not my question however. I'm wondering how or if you've gotten a MN fishing license? A pal couldn't go to MN fishing this year because they stopped selling MN fishing licenses on 30, June. They still enforce the requirement to have one but you can't get one????

Do you still fish in Minnesota? Have you fished any of the rivers and if so do you know of any good holding spots, pools / deeper slower water? Will be buying a boat next year so would be good to get a heads up on river locations. Do you know anything about the rod limits? I have heard it's 1 rod- how strict is this rule if clearly fishing for carp (I.e. Not bass or take home fish).
You do have the Mississippi, the Minnesoata and the St. Croix Rivers. All have the "potential" for big fish. Lake Minnetonka is also a good bet. I used to fish there from my mother-in-law's front yard - no thirties but loads of fish in the 15-20 range.

I think you should assume the one-rod rule means one-rod. I would not expect any flexiblity on the law.
Phone- the state government was shut down for a while because of budget problems but it is running now so I assume one can get a license.
