Announcing a new Meetup for TC Fishing Fanatics!What
: Shore Fishing Pond Hopping- EaganWhen
: Sunday, October 10,[masked]:00 PMWhere
: Trapp Farm Park
841 Wilderness Run Road
Eagan, MN 55123
Eagan in the South East Metro contains a lot of somewhat hidden little gems of small lakes and ponds which are stocked by the city and private parties that can contain some really nice Bluegill, Crappies, Bass and Bullheads and are a shorefisher's paradise.
There are roughly 20 small lakes within a two mile expanse that are stocked with fish, and only one has boat acess. This makes a good variety of lakes and options for shorefishers.
I'm going to start the meetup in the afternoon so we have an early enough start to spend an hour or two at a lake and then move onto another. We can stick to lakes I've fished, but if people have other suggestions I am open to it. The start place will be Trapp Farm Pond also known as Schawnz Lake. It is one of the smallest lakes in the area, but it is stocked agressively and I was catching a lot of sunfish and one nice bass for the hour I fished it last weekend on my way home from Farmington.
From there we have several options if Trapp Farm doesn't do that well, moving our way North and back towards 35E and Highway 55: Quigley, Heine Pond (nice crappies and bass through the ice), Fish (Largest variety of fish, including Northern Pike), Lemay (Big bass and sunfish here; though the shore acess is limited if the park is reserved), and North Lake aka Thresher Field Lake just to name a few.
