Mississippi river crappies near "the Cathedral "

Recommended Posts

crappie todd

I just heard of a spot on the Mississippi river where the crappies run nice fishing through the ice . the location was stated as near "the Cathedral.". I was informed - If I ask anyone thats familiar with St Cloud, they will know exactly where it is. So, I am asking.

I Think You Mean Cathedral. ???? It's A High School

By The River.

There Is This Storm Sewer System Coming Out It's Got Rails Around It. Can't Miss It. I've Seen People Fishing There Before. Hope This Helps ???? P.S It's On The West Side

Of The River

Thanks for the spelling correction.

Not likely I will venture up and out to that spot. I was just surprised when the future son in law said he was out fishing the other day at the river and caught some decent crappies. Decent meant 12 inch fish.

On my way to clearwater now for some morning bite crappies.

have a great day catchin fish.

I lived in st cloud for 35 yrs. and fished this spot many times growing up. Craps are there and of nice size. Problem is it is not a very large area. The culvert is dredged out directly in front of the railings but comes back up quick. You can do good if there isn't too many anglers competing for the hole. Not a good destination to fish for a day, but if you are local and have a hour or two to wet a line this is a good chance for a quick fish or two. Good luck. pretty much downtown st.cloud, can't say I would even bother on a weekend, unless you like bumping elbows with the locals, many better destinations within close proximity to the area.

One more thing, this specific spot is only 30' wide x 15' long. So everyone can bring there freinds and it can be like downtown minneapolis SWEET that's why I go fishing, I strive to turn my weekend into metro feasco, so tell everyone you know and I'll see you out there!!! NOT!!!

      You can fish a little meat out of the ones with really big claws. Tails are easy once you get the hang of it. Meat pops right out then just pull the intestine(?) and you're good to go.  I'd rather people use fish guts as crawfish bait rather than throwing them in the woods for my dog to find

      You can also get the ArcGIS app to access the county files on your mobile or download the .kmz files on the county site to use in Google Earth. Either way very useful.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way

      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
