Cats near Monti

7 posts in this topic

Anyone know of any good areas for a newbie to try and find some cats around the Monticello area?

I believe the Montissippi Park is a good spot. Ask Aquaman01 that's his home stretch.

Aquaman01 give a call on when and where bud.

Do you have a boat, thats good on the Upper Mississippi? Anything 14 foot shallow V hull with a short shaft motor will work great. Jon Boats are even better. If you don't Ellison Park right in Monticello fishing off shore can be good for catfish and bass. And Montisippi Park west on Cty Rd 75 can is good for cats and walleyes right downstream of the fishing pier. If you have a boat I could point you to even more spots.

Before I had a boat I spent many a night at the parks in Monti. I caught alot of nice catfish using dip bait. I do not think you can go wrong in any of those areas.

The shore between the Monticello Bridge and Big Oaks Park on the Sherbourne County side, I believe most of this area is now called Bridgeview. It is all residential now, but if you can get to the water there are several good locations in that stretch which include a decent drop off where we used to catch walleyes and a big shallower "bay" where the catfish would bite.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      So does this mean I should go shopping for a kayak?  But ya I should get one thoughWonder if I can fit one in a mini van.
    • Wanderer
      Yup!  I think that's where we're all heading!  'Cept I'll be in Ely.  Otherwise I'd join ya.   Have a good time, safe trip and catch lots!
