Fishing on Pools 7 and 8 has been tough but fish can still be caught.  There seems to be a good bite happening right on the main channel for a variety of species.  Try focusing on the rock windams and riprap.  Keep moving while hitting the many wingdams available and you'll find fish!

It has been awhile since the Mississippi River has been at a level that allowsfishermen to hit their favorite main channel spots.  With only a trolling motor I putt out to two of my favorite wingdams and they did not disappoint!

I am just too lazy to do what guy in video did,I just launch above the dam and lock through.It's a free service and fairly fast when water is high.There were many times that I never went down,found fish in the marina.

Back in April,2019 I pulled 2 guys out from that landing.Their 4wd obviously didn't engage,so they just sat and spun wheels on the slime/silt.And there were a few that left scars on pavement with skegs.So screw that,I will take a little extra time and stay dry and not ruin anything.

Fishing is getting a lot better,and caught many perch that are still milting.Same goes for the walleye,things are late this year.Just have to search for them and they are willing to cooperate.Had some nice action in the Sumner chute area,same with Hammond.Sure is nice to do a lot of running around and come back with plenty of fuel to spare,those Hondas are the real deal.

As the river drops and the water continues to warm metabolism rates of fish will kick in creating good bites on all species of fish. Throw a jig or use some live bait in low current areas where bait congregates and you’ll find multiple species of fish willing to bite.

Despite the high river levels fishing for walleye can still be successful.  The fish can be found anywhere from 15 fow to as little as 2 fow.  Use plastics and size the jighead so that the bait remains just off bottom, the strike zone, as long as possible.  Water temps are in the low to mid 40's but the walleye are hammering a slow moving presentation.  Good Luck!!!

Gash boy...you know where you got on the boat for the ride out to the float? Well look left and head that way...you really can’t miss it with 67 boats in a 20’ circle. You can get on that wall and catch perch till your fingers fall off.
