Clearwater/Becker area?

5 posts in this topic

Hi does anyone know of a good fishing spot for smallies anywhere from a 1/2 mile up or downstream of the clearwater or becker landing. I'll be in my kayak so I don't want to paddle too far. Also i've never been on the mississippi so is there anything I should watch out for? thanks

Yeah, watch out for the DNR! The bass season doesn't open until 2 weeks after the walleye opener.

Ahhh, I was hoping you'd say that. Well, I hope you do get some good advice, I'm interesting in fishing that area too. I cross the river at that bridge all the time and it looks really promising down there. As low as the water has been though I think I might just throw some sandles on and wade up and down the river. When it's hot and muggy I can do that all day...very productive fishing too.

      I usually go up north, or stop by my Holiday to grab waxies or some small crappie minnows. But where in the metro can a guy get some small/medium suckers or shiners? I am closer to the south metro and work in Woodbury. I don't think Cabelas or Gander carry them anymore.

      I would also suggest small sucker, I also had good luck with just a crappie minnow on the hook. Depends on the lake really.

      White jig heads with a white tube, if that's not working use a buzz bomb with a sucker head or tail on the treble

      Ok, That's a good update.  I didn't realize all the fish died and I'll probably try and change the lake.  Thanks guys!
