There are some public areas just north of becker. that is about a 1/2 hour from St. Cloud State. I am not sure what it is called, though. Sherburne wildlife refuge is north of becker/big lake as well, however I am not sure on what permits etc. you need for hunting there. Can anyone help him out?????

I agree that the area around Rice are the best. There is one directly on the Mississippi, I can't remember the name. That looked very promising.

St. Cloud has an open deer season with a permit. Go to city hall and they can inform you a little more.

      Should I look for the cats more in deep holes now or more in shallow by bridges etc. Don't want your spot just general info. I know they can be any where but I'm thinking deep? Also would fat heads be a good choice now.

      Well my ice season ended, it was an extremely short year, with not alot of opportunity to get out. Still caught some good fish and had some good times with friends, enjoy the video!

      I'very never heard of anyone getting into them.  But I do see them cutting the surface early morning or evening.  Might be able to get a few on a fly rod.

      There's a few really good cat spots in that stretch.  It won't be long and it will all be open.
