Mississippi Point Park

Recommended Posts

Mr Special

Aquaman01,
Mississippi point park is right on the southeast side of the 169 bridge in the city of Champlin. Where are you located, it sounds like it might be awasys for you? I just work down the road from there so it a good spot after work. Give it a few weeks and you can catch anything from carp to walleyes and smallmouths there.

Good luck

I work about 10 minutes from there, and live 40 minutes the other way. I think I'll check that out. Thanks.
93rd Ave in Maple Grove has a park with a creek running through it that has produced crappies in the past as they move from lake to lake. Haven't seen anyone out yet, though.

That's Elm creek, it runs out of Rice lake. That can be a very good spot but I believe Rice lake had a bad winter kill two years ago. Three or more years ago it was a great lake for crappies, sunnies, bass and northerns. In the spring and fall there would be people shoulder to shoulder at the lagoon near the aerator. I've tried a couple of times since and nothing but little sunnies. I work just off of 169 and Brooklyn Blvd so it pretty close. If weather permits we should hit the park next week. Bring beer and I'll show you spots.

Good luck

Went down to Mississippi point park yesterday, but didn't fished due to the wind was right in our faces. Did see a blue heron poach a 10" walleye right from the lagoon area. Then we went to the rum river dam, the wind was calmer, the current was strong. caught one sucker and one crayfish. Not great but nice to cast again.

Good luck

HiYa Mr. Special,
Mississippi Point Park? Where's that? I'm always looking for shore spots. I'll be trying Crow...sumthin...Park 4 miles south of Buffalo after the weather nices up again.

Hit a shore spot in Otsego last night - 1 carp. Nice to fish.

Good to hear your the same Man. I was wondering where RobertC went. We usually get off at 4:00 or 5:00. Picking up bait won't be a problem either. Just straight up the road from my work are to bait shops in Osseo. Ones at the Ace Hardware store and the other is at Osseo Express gas station, but he doesn't have his minnow tank yet its fairly new.

Aquaman01,
If you didn't get my email just wanted to say that we were thinking of heading out at 4:00 on thursday. Did you want to meet at the park and if you need directions post back? Like last week if the park doesn't look good we could go to the dam at the Rum or just figure something out.

Got too dark. After feeding a couple of tackle-eating trees I called it a night.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
