I dont know anything about the st.croix, but I am done fishing millacs for the season as the bit has pretty much totally died off. Besides if you do catch any you wont be able to keep them with the new slot

Question is what do you want to catch?

If it is a bigger walleyes, Muskie’s or Smallmouth hit mille lacs up. The smallie bite I guess has been pretty good on the south end gravel, and Muskie’s have been producing as of late as well. Walleyes might be a little harder to come by but from the sounds of some of the reading on here, you can still catch them.

The croix water levels are down, but don't let that discourage you from going there. Upstream of Stillwater I wouldn't even bother with because the levels of water. But I still here people catching walleyes down there and also Cats and Smallmouth. Oh and if you just want to go catch a bunch of fish that fight.... Sheep head by the numbers are down on the croix lol.

GOOD LUCK!

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
