smalljaw posted a topic in Crane-Kabetogama-Namakan-Rainy-Rainy River Fishing Reports
Hi all. I am new to the forum, but not to the area. Who are the folks on here that like to target smallies on the Mississippi (and tribs)? The last few years I have really enjoyed fishing smallmouth bass in the St. Cloud, Sauk Rapids, and Sartell stretches of the sippi. Anybody getting out for them yet this fall? How is the action for you? Not looking for your secrets (I have plenty of my own), just wanting folks to chime in that share a passion for fishing this awesome river!
Hey guys, I've peaked in on this forum a few times over the last 10 years but have never followed through with my desire to hit up the St. Croix to target some smallmouth primarily. Well... I'm hoping to make it happen this Saturday and was hoping for some general guidance. I live in Minneapolis and was hoping to fish the areas nearest to me, and based on the map and previous threads I've seen I was leaning towards the area from Prescott heading north to wherever (preferably staying south of the Lake). My questions are the following: Where are the simplest ramps to use within the area described above, and preferably without paying a fee? Is there a stretch of the river that is in general easiest to start from? better overall? Areas to altogether avoid? (I'm comfortable on Pool 2 and rivers in general, though not always the best at finding the fish, but thats just due to a lack of time spent searching usually) Is there anything I should expect this time of year regarding the fishing, traffic, other regulations that are out of the ordinary? I appreciate any help anyone is willing to provide! I hate going in completely blind, so thats why I'm reaching out here.
