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

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      Thanks, shes a tough lake to keep stocked I think with the pressure it gets all summer.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
