I am wondering if anyone has seen any carp in the shallows on this Mississippi River pool 11 while they were fishing? Any info would be very helpful, looking to start shooting them so that the gamefish populations can grow. Thanks and good luck to everyone.

Fished Sat and Sun . Nice batch of gills caught on crawlers in 5-6Fow . Fishing rock bars in backwaters . Also caught lots of bass on Storm Shade bodies and buck tail jigs casting to the same rock bars the gills were on . Also caught walleyes and white bass on same spots . Bass were also still hitting cranks and plastics on the wood in cuts.

The river is projected to crest approx. 12 feet above normal in the next couple of days. Landings all under water. From looking at the pool levels up to St. Paul I do not expect the water to be back to "normal" for at least 6 weeks, barring any more major rain. It appears the level will remain high, after the crest, and not fall at all for awhile and then just fall slowly. I look at it as there will be a lot more fish to catch next year. This is the highest, over time, that I have seen the river in fifty years.

my cousin wants to try out of Dubuque (o'learys) and head north to fish whatever we can catch...preferably sm or lm........is this stretch of water worth the effort Wingdam? or should we try north further towards Cassville? I have tried to convince him to try the Stoddard/genoa area, but he doesn't want to travel so far.

What I move away and everyone quits fishing here??? Anything happening out there? What is the water level doing I heard that the ferry is going to start running this weekend for the first time this year, so it must be down below the 13ft. mark. Maybe I will just have to get down there this weekend and give it a try and post how I do Later, Wingdam

Well we have been out the last couple of late afternoons into the night and found when the sun went down the started to bite have been doing realy good on pan fish manly gills and some nice sized ones. We have been doing good useing real small jigs without bodys and tiped with a piece of worm and i mean small piece like the size of a wax worm and i tryed them and do so good. One nightcrawler should get you about 5 fish. It was funny was catching gills in about 2-3 ft of water on these little jigs i use for icefishing and and started to catch walleyes on them and nice eater size we had about 42 gills smallest around 8ins and the biggest was 11 1/2 ins but for the most part they were in the 9 to 10 in range. And we each had a limit of eyes 16 to 21 ins it has been a good couple of nights of fishing. And are suppers have been real good (YUM)
