9 posts in this topic

Looks like were going to get some interesting weather this weekend but that's what rain gear is for. I plan on hitting the river the usual time rain or shine, at least it won't be hot out! Any body else going out in this weekend? Looks as of now I'll be flying solo in the morning! smile.gif

I'm taking a couple of people out of the Bluffs tonight. Will be interested to see how we do. You have any pointers for evening fishing down there. Don't know if I'll be out there on Sunday morning or not.

Walli1,

I wish I was available to beg you for a spot in your boat. I have read your posts with envy, and would like to learn more about the river. I do well out of my boat, but I can always learn grin.gif

I will be out Sunday evening after we get back from the weekend. If you ever see a red and white 17' Starcraft with a 90 merc on back say hi.

Thanks for the reply and pointers Walli. We made it out, but didn't do very well. Was still great being down on the river though.

The sun rise this morning was unreal it made the whole river glow, wow! Fishing this morning was alright had to really work for what I got, fished 9 different places and graphed two others, ended the morning with 4 decent eyes all coming on crawlers in 20 to 35 fow and one heck of a strange way to get a carp. I was lindying along when all of a sudden I felt a weird tug I pulled back and fish on then up came my line and wrapped around that was lead core with a fish on the end I pulled up the line thinking pig walleye but no such luck, here someone snagged a carp and the line must of broke, the carp was around 6 pounds and the shad rap I recovered hooked on the side of the fish was perch pattern. I wonder who lost it and the story that was told about losing a big fish, did the story say it was a carp! wink.gif

Can't believe I let the weather man talk me into not fishing on Sat morning. I bet it was alright out on the Croix for a good while. I sure hope the smart people got the enjoyment out of a good trip. What did you guys catch? Hopefully I missed out on a great bite.

      I want to give an honest review of Steve and north county auto. He saw my post on here of a fisherman in need and offered his service. I looked around and could have taken my hub to get repaired at multiple places closer to me than Crystal, but decided to give another fisherman a try.    This was a perfect experience.  He was willing to meet me outside of normal business hours to accommodate my schedule. The stitch up appears totally solid (double stitched) and Steve even warranteed the repair. The price was more than fair and he's a nice guy to boot.    I'd definitely recommend this place if you're in need of canvas repair. He does a bunch of other things for the open water fisherman as well.    My apologies if this somehow violates any rules on the forum (I never looked) but my experience was a good one and wanted to pass it along.

      We did not go all the way out this weekend so I can't say for sure where 'most' were fishing.  Since you can literally go anywhere, there were no real "concentrations" of houses that I saw.  Everyone was spread out real nice except I did see quite a few houses fishing in closer to Pine, near the snowmobile trail, based on the distance (maybe a mile or mile and a half out?) I would guess they were "shallow" and not out to the basin.  Distance can be tough to judge so this is my approximation.   Some friends road sleds WAY north and were surprised that shortly after they set up a suburban came from the south and fished near them.  Like I was saying people are spread out.   Adrian's road now only goes out 11.5 vs. the 16 miles they were out a week ago.   Good Luck!

      Was on the boat Sunday got a little further past the 49 bridge. Is the 22 landing opening up at all? Anyone know how much ice is even out there? I would think we made a little.
