Wondering if anyone knows if there is access to Little Comfort? Back in my (pre)teens before the area was built up

I remember floating in inner tubes catching sunnies, From what I can see from hi-way 8, I'd say those days are gone, anyways I wanted to pop some holes and see what it was like, I can always go to the other side, but I remember it as being alot tougher and not as good(i.e fun), anybody got a little more recent memory of the lake(s)

hulkster,

I'm not entirely sure this is legal, but I have observed people parking on a side street just off of Hwy. 8 and walking the ditch to the lake. You would have to cut through the cattails, which is also not the world's greatest idea. If you find a "rat run" in there, you're going to get wet.

I doubt you're going to find any better fish in there than you would find in Big Comfort.

There is no accesse to the lake unless you know someone. As Ray said I have parked on a side street and walk along Hwy 8 to the lake. I have never got a ticket but thats not to say you would not I'm just not sure about that. Any way it is a long walk and tough walk but can be done. I only go for last ice so all I need is a some poles and a bucket to sit on.

      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.
