There is a park called "Peninsula point park" in Anoka, on the west side right where the Rum enters the Miss. I see people there fishing quite a bit. I see them using a bottom rig setup there a lot, but I don't know if they catch anything. There is kind of a hole there after the Rum enters, but I don't know that it's really within casting distance. That area is pretty good on smallies too, so it might be worth a try.

If you get the chance, maybe try the boat on a weekday morning instead of the weekend.

How are the water levels on the rum from the dam down and through the mississippi up and downstream of the mouth? Pretty navigable for a 14 footer? Average depth? Any dangerous rocks? I've just gotten into fishing the upper 'sippi and this looks like an appealing place.

I know this is not saying much, but two weeks ago they were fine if you have a shoft shaft. You could still get up to landing dock at dam.

Catfishing down at dam has been pretty sparce as of late and I am done down their for the year. May hit it agan this fall.

Its gettin' pretty skinny down here above the bridge, jets rule, wish I had one (RP of course). Those that are familer with this spot just might chime in. Them pilings are 2 feet out of the water.

This is from my last trip up there with the Rock Finder, Sunday, might be the last for the year, it was tough getting up there, not recommended, unless your GPS has a lot of marking on it, it's gonna cost ya. blush.gifblush.gif

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.
