Mississippi Point Park

10 posts in this topic

This morning I went to Peninusula Point Park for the first time. This is a very nice park. Very clean.

It was also my first time fishing on Mississippi. I was only fishing on shore and didn't catch anything. Actually I haven't caught anything yet using artifical bait. What can be the problem? Technique? Location? Lure itself?

Are you talking about the park north of the rivers edge bar?

Sorry, it is called Peninsula Point Park (north of the twin cities by 169)

There is a dam upstream in downtown anoka on the rum that I have fished a couple times and did very well on small mouth bass. Was using small curly tail grubs. I would give that a try.

pt0093 is talking about Peninsula Point Park where the Rum River meets the Mississippi River. I've been meaning to check it out myself but have yet to do so.

At the Anoka Dam, where were you fishing? The upside or the downside of the dam? During the early fall season you can catch some keeper/fillet size smallies on the upside of the dam with a cast and retrieve method. They'll bite just about anything at that time.

I was fishing the downside of the dam. Off of the floating dock they have down there. There is also another fishing platform downstream from there.

I've fished the park 4 times. Twice we got a couple of redhorse, and smallies only hit for us once - late summer on the Rum River side.

I'd give redtail chubs or leeches a try this time of year. May help, good luck! Also if you walk upstream on the Miss towards the 169 bridge, there is a long narrow culvert or buried cable that they surrounded with rock, this acts as a wingdam and breaks the current, they may be holding on the upstream or downstream side of that. It should be just up from where the floating dock/pier is, and may be visible with the current water level. Good Luck

      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!
