Mississippi River
« on: Oct 03, 2005, 03:13 PM »
I am located in Wisconsin and have a Lic. for this state.  I would like to fish the backwaters of the Miss. this winter mostly along the Wisconsin shoreline and was wondering how rules and regs are watched?  Do i follow Wisconsin rules and regs or where do i find the rules and regs for Mississippi River?  Thanks for any info anyone has.

If you're gonna fish the 'sippi, all you need is a licence from either states.  The catch is, if you launch on the Wisconsin side, you have to follow Wisconsin rules and regs on both sides of the river, and vice versa.  Any other questions, make sure to check the regs

Have you read the books that I think lakemaster puts out?  They have one for southern mn, and it has the whole stretch of the sippi from st paul to the iowa border w/ hotspots marked.  Trust me, the spots do produce!

NWI

Check out the Wisconsin Fishing Regulations pages 52-54.  Explains everything.  Try up around Alma/Nelson backwaters.  Usually get some pretty big slabs up there.

Northwoods Ice:

Some good places around Prairie for gills that I can recommend would be Bagley's Bottom south of town near the village of Bagley and Cold Spring north of Lynxville.  I've also been told that Ambose Slough just north of Prairie is a good spot but I've never fished it.

Thanks DOG, I will defiantly try and hit those spots this season.  Only a few more weeks and ice should be here.  Cross your fingers  ;D
