    I live in south STL city, temptingly close to the Mississippi. The nearest place I have found to fish is Cliff Cave park. Is there any other access nearer to me? Thanks.

    Theres alot of guys who wont tell you good spots thats just how it goes...This is one of the best spots in South City from the bank hands down.

    I hope you have some good gear.
    On the corner of Broadway and Davis GO EAST down Davis you will go over 2 sets of train tracks park at the gate on your left .

    Walk past the yell bar/gate about 75yards look to your right Welcome you have arrived at a spot that holds very decent fish from the bank . 4oz sinker will work great.when i go to this spot i use skipjack This is a grainy and be ready to pull 15/40/60 lbs blues out of this location .

    Have fun enjoy and post some pics if you get a few .

    thankx Rob.

    Don't fish Cliff Cave, or don't fish the area by Davis/Broadway?

    Just went to look at the Davis area. Can't see where to park. Did you mean park before you cross the tracks?

    Nope but you can ... But most people park in-front of the gate to the left after you go over the tracks ..

    I have a 4x4 Tahoe and i drive over the tracks ... i would tell anyone els not to but i know the guy who runs the whole show down there and if you get suck on the tracks and have to call a tow truck he will call the police.

    When i take my f150 down there i walk since its only 2wd.

    When you wanna go fishing down there let me know ill come down and show you a few others also.Thats not just a bank spot either theres a hole out there that is 61ft it has a 28ft drop off... so u get the ideal. right not its probably 80ft lol!
