River 'eyes

I live in Maple Grove and was wondering where would be the closest place to go to catch some walleyes to C&R on the mighty Mississippi, and with that the boat access location too... I just have a 14 ft with 15HP.

Any thoughts would be great.

River walleyes are awfull tough out here. I have caught most of mine on jigs with minnows. I don't think one spot is much better than the next, they are kind of scattered throughout the river. You should be able to get your boat in at most accesses from Anoka to St. Cloud. I have had the best luck in the late fall, but haven't tried too much otherwise. There are some decent sized walleyes in there wink.gif

Keep in mind that on the upper miss eye season is closed, if you want to go right no (brrrr.) pool 2 south of the Ford Dam is your best bet!

There was an article in the Strib or the Dispatch a number of years ago about downtown St. Paul being a really great spot for BIG Walleye's, you had to throw them back because of the pollution back then but I recall a study saying they cleaned that part of the river up. 10#'s was supposed to be pretty common.

You have to throw them back by St. Paul because that is pool 2, which is C&R only.

Was down there last fall and the fishing was very good. I posted a picture of a BIG 'eye I caught down there. It's in the walleye forum. You have to work for them but it can really pay off.

      where we all fishing today?   Looking to walkout or use 4 wheeler if landing permits?

      We miss the leadership of Ricky Rubio ... Teague is a very bad defender and does not see the floor.  Rubio had his best shooting percentage season ever and career points scored of his career.  Wish we could re-do that trade.   Don't get me going .... among players that play the most minutes ... we are now the 7th oldest team in NBA???   2 year window to win ... we should have kept our talent and let the cake bake!

      We still have 24" of ice on the bay & we're only 6-8 miles from where they set the nets. Doubt they'll be starting anytime soon over there.

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.
