Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies
Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.
Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.
The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.
Go to the fields off hwy 10 where diamonds used to be and where the boat launch is in Ramsey. I plant feathers and stuff there sometimes there is a variety of tall grass around there.
the best pre buy program I have found is at golden meadows. if you put money on an account before aug 26 the prices are depending on when you go

Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off and a little bridge that goes over the inlet.
Its off of east river road at the end of 79th. I believe its called riverview heights park.
My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them.
It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish.
if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now?
I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.
I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method.
Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.
Thanks! She is only 40 pounds at 9 months old. Don't think she will get much bigger.
I was hoping to talk with some people at the game farm next month to see if i can get a great price on a pre-buy program.
I have some pheasant feathers and she goes crazy when she see me grab them. I need to find a field that the grass is not chest high to plant them or better yet get some game birds and tie the feet off and plant those.
If you drive by Round Lake and see a red Tundra stop in and say hello. I am there most nights when it gets this hot.
