Bevanoff correction east side of tracks sorry??
Mississippi River Pool 9 - Genoa
Just wondering if there is any ice up in De Soto bay yet and how the heck do you walk to there? I was looking at Google Maps and could not find a service road or anyting. I see trucks down by the docks but I don't see anywhere that doesn't require crossing tracks (which I still think is a no no). Thank you!

Late posting - fished the area last week, on the 3rd. Walleyes and Saugers were decently active. Only fished a pretty small area, plenty of other people out. Kept 3 (included one decent sauger). Lots of shorts. Beautiful early December day. Water temperature around 35 degrees, which kept the air cooler than inland temperature. Boat is put away now.
Any ice reports yet? Anyone on the ice? Green lake or other early areas?
Rotten 65, yes, it was a great couple of days fishing with you guys! Great pictures of the big ones you caught, but you forgot the biggest one that Joey caught! I think that's the biggest sheepshead I've seen, and we have caught some huge ones in the past. It took both of us to lift it up for the picture. Wish the weather would stay with us for a few more weeks. That area is literally full of fish. Thanks for being a good sport and releasing those two big ones you caught. That 29 incher would be on most guys wall!
Probably my last open water trip for the year unless something changes. I've got all my ice fishing gear ready, so if you would like to schedule a trip, give me a shout! And don't forget about my gift certificate special!
Thanks for reading my reports and good fishing!

Awesome 2 Days Fishing with my Son Joey and Guide John Bomkamp.
Great Knowledgeof the River and was able to twach an old dog a few Tricks. Fished in new Areas i never have before and put us on some awesome Dec Fishing. Great conversation felt like I was fishing with an old Friend. Would recomend his services to new and Expert fisherman trying to Learn the Mississippi River. We caught a mixed bag of fish from stripe bass, smallmouth, sturgeon, sheaphead, carp, Walleyes and Saugers.

Fun day today fishing with Mark. A very nice morning with pleasant temps and light wind. Caught a mixed bag today including some nice walleyes in the 18 inch range and a couple of saugers, up to 16 inches. "bonus fish" included two sturgeons, a channel cat, a large rock bass and several sheepshead! Caught them all vertical jigging a hair jig tipped with a minnow. The water temp is still in the 37 degree range. Water level is stable in the 8 foot range at Lansing.
Hope to get in a few more days on the open water, but I know what's around the corner! Thanks for reading my reports and have a good week!

Another great late fall day out on the river yesterday with friends Lenny and Pat. I lucked out and caught this nice, fat 24 incher. (released) We kept 9 walleyes and saugers. Had to work for them, moving around catching a couple on each spot. The water temp was 37 degrees yesterday.
My holiday gift certificate special is on from now until Xmas. Didn't update my website, but it is good for 20% off my regular rates. Good for ice fishing trips also.
Thanks for reading my reports, and have a good week!
