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.

There is a turn off of River Road in St. Paul.

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!

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
