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.

Of The River

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!!!

      The statistics from my journal for the 2016/2017 spearing season have been compiled. I had 21 sits, on 7 different bodies of water across 3 MN counties (Cook, Washington and Hennepin). Average sit was 4.4 hours. Number of pike seen averaged 1.08 per hour. Along with some old favorites, I added some new spots and 3 new lakes to the repertoire and they ended up being new favorites.    I saw, and passed on many pike over 30 inches. I was fortunate enough to have great views of 4 muskies, and more than a few big bass. Interestingly I only saw one walleye, one bowfin and one carp. Those numbers are down.     Here are a few of my pictures from the past season. Not the best quality, but they are from an old LG slider phone.    A trio for the pan and  the days swim team (Johnson red/white and sunfish; Dennis Bertram shiner). Dave Pawlak spear. Larger pike had been attacked by a bigger fish…she was cut up and scaled ahead of the dorsal fin.      Pike, some panfish and a Kraemer 9 tine spear.      I have a few more pictures of some fish n the hole and will try to add them later when I have time.
