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.

I Think You Mean Cathedral. ???? It's A High School

By The River.

There Is This Storm Sewer System Coming Out It's Got Rails Around It. Can't Miss It. I've Seen People Fishing There Before. Hope This Helps ???? P.S It's On The West Side

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!!!

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.

      I went and looked at a couple smaller 'early ice" lakes in the Cloquet area on sunday afternoon and there is nothing going on, and even tho the temps are gonna get colder, the wind this week will most likely not allow any of them to cap off til at least the weekend. Looking like its gonna be closer to Xmas before I'll be walking out for early ice this year (that's 6" for me LOL)

      I asked my sales guys that question a couple weeks back, when I picked up mine and he told me 4-6 hrs, I'm guessing that can change depending on the temps and stuff

      I am guessing he is using the vexilar edge or whatever the open water graph is called since he said he has fish alarm Personally I never use fish alarm or fish id on electronics   I am no expert either but here are some images that may help you
