Ft. Snelling is a good place to start and work your way towards the Miss. look for a rock outcrop with an eddy behind just by the confluence. Good prospect for big ones. You could also hit it from hidden falls on the Miss.

Good luck

I would suggest heading out to the Shakopee launch. Up or downstream is good. There are many more turns, snags and inlets to hold fish than the stretch between 35W and the Miss. It's a little shallow right now but easily passable.

If you're looking for flatheads and want to stay out later keep in mind that Fort Snelling park closes at 10pm and they will tow or lock you in. I left at 9:59pm on day and was followed out by the park staff and they locked the gate. Good Luck!

      Jayden,   Hey I grew up in Austin! I know of some great places to camp in Ontario if your interested. You would need to bring your own boat 16' would be fine, but it can be done super cheap! I normally camp with a good group of guys and it costs about $250 a week per person. That includes all gas and food for the trip!

           I work during day and live 2 miles from Blue lake ... i get home and hop on the 4 wheeler and have about 1 hour to fish.   The access on the lake is to darn deteriorated ... will see if things firm up next week, 60 and sunny today is the forecast.  Gonna be a close one even if it cools down next week.   We shall see ... Boy does ice fishing help winter pass fast (if that is possible)
