Mississippi Point Park

15 posts in this topic

Aquaman01,
Mississippi point park is right on the southeast side of the 169 bridge in the city of Champlin. Where are you located, it sounds like it might be awasys for you? I just work down the road from there so it a good spot after work. Give it a few weeks and you can catch anything from carp to walleyes and smallmouths there.

Good luck

I work about 10 minutes from there, and live 40 minutes the other way. I think I'll check that out. Thanks.
93rd Ave in Maple Grove has a park with a creek running through it that has produced crappies in the past as they move from lake to lake. Haven't seen anyone out yet, though.

That's Elm creek, it runs out of Rice lake. That can be a very good spot but I believe Rice lake had a bad winter kill two years ago. Three or more years ago it was a great lake for crappies, sunnies, bass and northerns. In the spring and fall there would be people shoulder to shoulder at the lagoon near the aerator. I've tried a couple of times since and nothing but little sunnies. I work just off of 169 and Brooklyn Blvd so it pretty close. If weather permits we should hit the park next week. Bring beer and I'll show you spots.

Good luck

Went down to Mississippi point park yesterday, but didn't fished due to the wind was right in our faces. Did see a blue heron poach a 10" walleye right from the lagoon area. Then we went to the rum river dam, the wind was calmer, the current was strong. caught one sucker and one crayfish. Not great but nice to cast again.

Good luck

HiYa Mr. Special,
Mississippi Point Park? Where's that? I'm always looking for shore spots. I'll be trying Crow...sumthin...Park 4 miles south of Buffalo after the weather nices up again.

Hit a shore spot in Otsego last night - 1 carp. Nice to fish.

Good to hear your the same Man. I was wondering where RobertC went. We usually get off at 4:00 or 5:00. Picking up bait won't be a problem either. Just straight up the road from my work are to bait shops in Osseo. Ones at the Ace Hardware store and the other is at Osseo Express gas station, but he doesn't have his minnow tank yet its fairly new.

Aquaman01,
If you didn't get my email just wanted to say that we were thinking of heading out at 4:00 on thursday. Did you want to meet at the park and if you need directions post back? Like last week if the park doesn't look good we could go to the dam at the Rum or just figure something out.

Got too dark. After feeding a couple of tackle-eating trees I called it a night.

      7/24/17     Got my son and one of my daughters out with Grandpa Smutka on Waconia this afternoon (I have football practice every morning this week). We targeted panfish alongside a weedy reef. Small jig spinners (1/8 ounce VMC Mooneye Jig with a #2jig spinner and a 2" Powerbait Minnow) slow rolled over the weed tops caught tons of crappies and a bonus bass. A 1/16 ounce jig with a 1" Power Grub suspended 4 feet below a slip float caught crappies and sunfish, Caught numbers and some nice ones--beautiful weather and great time for the kids spent with Dad and Grandpa. Good luck, take a kid fishing, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      I know back in the day, late 90's, people camped out along (approaches beside it)the forest road along Birch lake.  The road on the right, right before the dam on hwy 1 south of Ely.   I dont know all the legalities of thr forest there, they may or may not have been legal.

      The local state parks are also an option. Very modest yearly fee there also. Cliff

      Absolutely. I'd never get mad at a guy squirrel hunting while I'm deer hunting. Thats just public land hunting. Now if he shot at squirrels very close to me that's different. Maybe the guys I talked to had a bad experience but it isn't that frequent. That's what I hope anyway.

      Looks like the forest service campgrounds charge a modest fee.  But the are pretty nice.   Fall lake, fenske lake are a couple to consider

      Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      We have had a great week of fishing with a few showers and strong winds.

      Up in Canada, jigging on reefs and underwater humps are producing the best in 22-28 ft. with gold, pink and orange jigs. Pulling spinners is also an option on reefs in 22-24 ft of water.

      In Minnesota, walleyes and perch have been caught pulling spinners in 18-28 ft. West of Four Blocks, East of Crow Duck and East of Garden Islands, with black and gold being the most effective.

      On both sides, muskies have been aggressive when throwing buck tails and top waters on rock reefs.  The algae bloom has slowly begun to pick up, however, fish are still visible.

      We hope to see you soon!
