Best section for multi species

Recommended Posts

What's your take on the best section for Walleye, Cats and Whitebass?

I've fished from Pool 2 up to the Carver Rapids. I know a couple of cat spots that Dennis showed me and some I found, but haven't tied into any eyes and few whites. Just wondering on what sections (not spots) people would suggest.

I honestly don't think a certain section is better than another for multispecies. You can catch em all just about anywhere on any section.

As far as multispecies, here's what I've caught.

Flathead

Channel

Walleye

Sauger

Saugeye

White Bass

Goldeye

Turtle (softshell and snapper)

Gar

Northern

Crappie

White Bass

Largemouth

Carp

Buffalo

Shad

I'm sure I'm missing a couple

Sheepshead?

I would agree that if you have a line in on any stretch of the river, you are in primo multi-species territory.

I have landed 4 or 5 gar over the last couple years..

Got one smallmouth last year between Shakopee and the confluence. And LOTS of shovelnose sturgeon (can't believe DTRO left the shovelnose off his list). I've also caught a couple bullheads and depending on what you consider the river....creek chubs and a brown trout.

Freshwater eel? And a native fish called the Blue Sucker. Its making a comeback in the Minnesota River.

The whole stretch of river could put you on most of these fish but my fav is Shak to Kato.

I would advise that everyone stay off the river from Shakopee to Mankato and fish from Shakopee to the Miss. ;\)

Thanks for the posts! I like the Carver and Chan stretch, but that's all I know. I'd like to try Jordan just coz I haven't. This spring will be big time cattin. Does anyone toss cranks around and get flats? Caught a 29" channel on a DT6 on da Miss Pool 2.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir
    • monstermoose78
      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,
    • Tom Sawyer
      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys
    • Wanderer
      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.
    • Sculpin
      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
    • Jim Almquist
      Tried to buy it last Friday and they were not available. System was down/messed up
    • eyeguy 54
