lookin' fer maps

5 posts in this topic

I've been wearing out my search engines trying to find Mississippi river maps online. I'm thinking along the lines of the types of info in the DNR Lakefinder site, but for the Mighty Miss and Her tributaries in the St. Cloud, Minticello and Elk River Areas. Any ideas? Links? Clues?

Hey RobertC,
I've been beatin' that dead horse too. There isn't that much out there for other info that I can find. Try out this site though. It has the Topo and the Aerial Maps. You can zoom right in on pretty much any object, lake, pond, river, farm, you name it. It also tells you what date the photo was taken. I use it to find new hunting and fishing areas. Its all point and click.

Let me know what you think.

TundraKing-
Welcome and thank you!! The aerial photo maps are great, once I establish a benchmark, like a known dam, intersection or huge man-made structure. In concert with Mapquest, I ought to be able to find my way around on land pretty well. It's really cool, too. I feel like I'm in a Tom Clancy novel, going over satellite intelligence!!

Mapquest also has its own Aerial Photo feature which shows up as a tab once it pulls up the location or address you punched in or searched for.

THE D.N.R. HAS RIVER MAPS OF THE ENTIRE RIVER. ALSO THE LAKE/RIVER MAPS YOU SEE IN STORES HAS EXCELLENT MAPS WHICH PINPOINT HOT SPOTS AS WELL AS DEPTHS

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      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.

      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.

      Nuts, 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. Dick

      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.
