Minnesota native Derek Remitz previews the Mississippi River Rumble with "Fantasy Fishing Insider" Host Greg Huff.
After going deep in the last two tournaments, Bassmaster Elite Series anglers must change gears this week and go shallow to win the June 21-24 tournament on Mississippi River Pools 7, 8 and 9. Anglers will launch from Veterans Freedom Park in La Crosse, Wis.
Shallow backwaters with plentiful wood cover and shallow grass on flats adjacent to current will likely produce the most and biggest largemouth this week, provided they have access to nearby deeper water. Current breaks on main river bluffs, riprap, wing dams, bridge pilings and cuts will likely produce the best smallmouth, as well as a few largemouth. Marinas and docks could also produce some green and brown bass.
