Mississippi Point Park

Recommended Posts

pt0093

This morning I went to Peninusula Point Park for the first time. This is a very nice park. Very clean.

It was also my first time fishing on Mississippi. I was only fishing on shore and didn't catch anything. Actually I haven't caught anything yet using artifical bait. What can be the problem? Technique? Location? Lure itself?

Are you talking about the park north of the rivers edge bar?

Sorry, it is called Peninsula Point Park (north of the twin cities by 169)

There is a dam upstream in downtown anoka on the rum that I have fished a couple times and did very well on small mouth bass. Was using small curly tail grubs. I would give that a try.

pt0093 is talking about Peninsula Point Park where the Rum River meets the Mississippi River. I've been meaning to check it out myself but have yet to do so.

At the Anoka Dam, where were you fishing? The upside or the downside of the dam? During the early fall season you can catch some keeper/fillet size smallies on the upside of the dam with a cast and retrieve method. They'll bite just about anything at that time.

I was fishing the downside of the dam. Off of the floating dock they have down there. There is also another fishing platform downstream from there.

I've fished the park 4 times. Twice we got a couple of redhorse, and smallies only hit for us once - late summer on the Rum River side.

What Aquaman01 didn't tell you guys is that the music and fireworks was great though.

I'd give redtail chubs or leeches a try this time of year. May help, good luck! Also if you walk upstream on the Miss towards the 169 bridge, there is a long narrow culvert or buried cable that they surrounded with rock, this acts as a wingdam and breaks the current, they may be holding on the upstream or downstream side of that. It should be just up from where the floating dock/pier is, and may be visible with the current water level. Good Luck

      Fence and pressure from the neighborhood is your best best until there is a law against it. Good luck.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.

      New neighbor decided he likes to feed deer in the winter, and he does so right on our side of his yard.   The food attracts many many deer, and so our yard now has a big mudhole as well as bushels of deer pellets.    (free for the raking).    Nobody on the road is very happy about him feeding the deer since they tramp around the area and stand on the road and so on.    He didn't sound like "oops won't do that anymore" but more like "no big deal, it will wash away and the grass will grow back"    Anybody got any suggestions?   CO says "nothing that he can do", Town board isn't happy either but isn't convinced they can do anything.   I'm thinking that if they pass a rule, then I can take him to small claims court every spring until he stops wrecking our lawn.   Molotov cocktails are a last resort.   I am thinking of a fence that I put up in the fall to funnel the deer away from my yard.   Snowfence is too short but might help discourage them....   I really don't want war with the neighbor but this can't go on.    I'll talk to him again and see what he is thinking....   Maybe a letter from all his neighbors...   I need ideas...

      My buddy and I are hoping to make it in to Little Trout Lake the week after next.   Sitting a canoe has become a little less comfortable over the years, so our idea is to row/pole our way through the channel from Trout Lake in our 16' boat, then row around and drift in Little Trout, while catching some nice walleyes.   Hoping we can get through whatever remains of the beaver dam in the channel without getting in the water.    If anyone has been in to Little Trout lately, does this seem doable?    Poling through the channel always worked years ago when motors were allowed on Little Trout, but of course, things can change in 40+ years.   The only bummer is that I was hoping we could leave the motor on the boat and just not fire it up on Little, but the Ranger Station in Cook told me I must remove it and stash it on the Trout Lake side.  Also, although I spent quite a bit of time on Little Trout in the late 50's through the early 70's, I've only been in there a couple times since.  If anyone has any advice on fishing locations, I would gladly accept them.

      Thanks! I have to admit that the plan starting the day was to pitch for smallmouth but the wind where we wanted to fish pushed us to plan B! Another reason to tell my wife why I need so many rods and reels and tackle boxes!

      Nice fish!

      Not seeing any reports from Mille Lacs so here is my 1st report! Hit the pond Saturday afternoon for a few hours of getting the rust off the boat, equipment and skills. Found the fish in cabbage in 10-12 feet of water. Trolling stick baits 2.0 - 2.3 mph. Only got 4 walleye (24", 25" and two 28") but they were very healthy! Not bad for a few hours of fishing! Good luck out there and make some memories!
