So my friend just got new microfishing gear, and we were trying to find some places in or around the Twin Cities to try it out. Specifically, are there any lakes that have Orangespotted Sunfish in them nearby? I saw on a range map that they live around the Twin Cities in spots but I haven't found any lakes with them yet in LakeFinder.
Also, are there any other interesting micros in the Twin Cities that are not too difficult to get to? My friend and I have also been looking around for Goldfish, but we haven't been able to catch any yet. Finally, I see darters listed in LakeFinder sometimes, but I haven't seen any in the water- do they hang our near shore? And what kind of habitat do they like (my guess would be rocky?)?
Sorry for having so many questions all at once, we're both pretty new to microfishing. Thanks much in advance!
