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

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
