Greetings anglers...I'm in the Dubuque area for the summer and missing my trolling opportunities elsewhere. Would greatly appreciate some advice for shore fishing this season. The river is a beast...I'm just looking for some fun bites ideally some monster walleyes to put in the fryer. Thanks in advance for your time.
Mississippi River - NE Iowa/SW Wisconsin/NW Illinois
If you are In DBQ I would try below the dam on both sides.The fishing barge on the wis. side is usually good for something.I would fish early am or evening.If you go to the barge and want live bait take it with you.In the summer and the river at summer pool you may not get all the walleyes you want but crappie,bluegill,stripers,and the occasional perch are there.Oh and let's not forget the sheepies.
My first piece of advice is that ignore Big Shane. Read a couple other threads and you’ll understand why. That’s just all in good fun.
Seriously though, I’d start with the fishing floats and spillways.
Good luck and keep us posted
