Snuffys landing, Mississippi out of Becker

3 posts in this topic

Looking for a little help. I am new to the Becker area and my family would love to catch some Walleye from shore. I saw a place called Snuffys Landing on the Mississippi and was wondering has anybody fished from shore there for Walleyes? ( It looks very shallow ). Are the any other places from Monti to St. Cloud ( river or lake )that offers a chance to get some Walleye from shore? What would be the simplest set up to use?

What does everyone think?

'Eyes from shore is tuff....I can think of a few spots, but ya need permission to cross private property.

Below the St Cloud dam may hold a few this time of yr....Good Luck!

BTW, Not likely many would be willing to post their spots on the net....

You'll need to find some deeper water; pockets or channels for luck on eyes. The water right out from Snuffys shoreline is shallow, but there are eyes very close by.

I would recommend putting on a pair of waders. This will get you closer to possible productive areas/spots.

A good old fashion night crawler on a hook and split shot can get the job done. Other methods would be to use a mepps or shallow diving rap. You will/may also catch some smallies.

A word of caution...be sure to watch out for the smallmouth while eye fishing. When caught, the've been known to break a wrist and then proceed to pull a grown man down (pole and all) into the water depths. grin.gif

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
