As co-CEO and trustee of the Otto Bremer Trust in St. Paul, Minnesota, Daniel Reardon shares in oversight of operations at the organization. When he takes a break from his work at Otto Bremer, Daniel Reardon enjoys fishing.
Because Minnesota is so cold much of the year, ice fishing is very popular. There are a number of lakes in Minnesota that offer ice fishing opportunities for different types of fish.
In St. Paul, residents can fish in Beaver Lake or Thompson Lake, both of which have aeration systems to provide oxygen to fish when the lakes are frozen over. Beaver Lake is the primary choice for catching bluegill, while Thompson Lake has both bluegill and channel catfish.
At Wirth Lake in Minneapolis, people fish for walleye and northern pike, while at Wolfe Lake in St. Louis Park, fishermen go for yellow perch and black crappies. Riverpointe Pond in Watertown offers largemouth bass, channel catfish, and panfish.
