Mississippi river crappies near "the Cathedral "

5 posts in this topic

I just heard of a spot on the Mississippi river where the crappies run nice fishing through the ice . the location was stated as near "the Cathedral.". I was informed - If I ask anyone thats familiar with St Cloud, they will know exactly where it is. So, I am asking.

Thanks for the spelling correction.

Not likely I will venture up and out to that spot. I was just surprised when the future son in law said he was out fishing the other day at the river and caught some decent crappies. Decent meant 12 inch fish.

On my way to clearwater now for some morning bite crappies.

have a great day catchin fish.

I lived in st cloud for 35 yrs. and fished this spot many times growing up. Craps are there and of nice size. Problem is it is not a very large area. The culvert is dredged out directly in front of the railings but comes back up quick. You can do good if there isn't too many anglers competing for the hole. Not a good destination to fish for a day, but if you are local and have a hour or two to wet a line this is a good chance for a quick fish or two. Good luck. pretty much downtown st.cloud, can't say I would even bother on a weekend, unless you like bumping elbows with the locals, many better destinations within close proximity to the area.

One more thing, this specific spot is only 30' wide x 15' long. So everyone can bring there freinds and it can be like downtown minneapolis SWEET that's why I go fishing, I strive to turn my weekend into metro feasco, so tell everyone you know and I'll see you out there!!! NOT!!!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
