pool2 hidden falls

5 posts in this topic

Shorefishing on the Mississippe by hidden falls (st paul side). Plastics having NO results. Crawlers got me a 3lb channel cat, couple of 2lb smallmouth. Tried cut bait right by the shore, hooked a monster walleye rightaway where the river bends-brought it to 5 feet from shore then 10lb line snapped. Current is strong there, and hitting the bottom with crawlers and cut bait is really working.

on FORD PARKWAY(st paul), take the River Road (close to the PETCO)exit and take a left on Mississippi Blvd, follow this down past the ford plant. About half a mile or so, you will see the entrance for HIDDEN FALLS (right before McGoffan I think). Just go straight down and you can park by the boat landing. I normally walk towards the dam and fish the points.

I'm heading down there on friday afternoon. email me if you want

PS: I think it's better to fish with other people in the evenings over there, have seen some strung out creeps around

North Hidden Falls entrance "boat Ramp" is on Magoffin Street. South Hidden Falls entrance is south of Mississippi River Boulevard and Prior Avenue.

Good Luck!

      Went to a small lake up around Mille lacs lake and found 20-28 inches of ice. The access looked like some busted it up, so eyeguy and I walked out. We caught bluegills and crappies on plastics. It was windy and cold but we got a few nice ones.

      Well, got out there this morning. Wind really made things miserable. Ice was about 12 inches. Was still in pretty good shape along the shorelines, although the top few inches were "milky". Ice was really popping and cracking the whole time. Everyone was traveling by foot (which I recommend). Tried for rainbows in the shallows, but couldn't avoid the perch, so I went deep for lakers. Marked one right off the bottom in 115 ft, but other than that, just a couple pods of smelt moved through. Pretty disappointing end to a very forgettable ice season

      Had about two hrs to kill today... so I hit one of our local lakes. Ice conditions were pretty good for walking out. Ice has hardened up a bit, still a bit chunky though. Had right around 13inches where I was. Found fish tucked right up in the bullrushes, 2-5 ft. Was able to sight fish to pick of some better ones.
