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

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
