There is a vey hot crappie bite going on the Croix.Fish can be had in 4 to 14 fow.The usual technics are working well,slip bobber or jig and minnow, plastics also working well.Responding to questions on redtails,I noticed Jimmys in Stillwater had some last weekend.You may want to call ahead though,Im not sure how frequent they get them.Good luck to all this weekend,Im trapped with home improvements mad.gif

Was looking for them last night and no luck. Had fun catching gills, smallies, and rock bass though.

Took a friend of mine from work out this evening.The wind was a little harsh for pitching small crappie jigs but we still managed to tear them up pretty good.Sent him home with a nice batch of crappies and caught plenty more to boot that went back in the water.With the wind cranked up it seems the fish drop down a little deeper than in calm conditions.Ive been sticking with jig and crappie tubes,it takes to long to fool around with live bait the way they are hitting right now.Ill be interested to see if the fish change locations after this cool down thats forcast...Good luck out there....

Good report sir!

I was planning on hitting the river tomorrow evening for a bit, might have to give that a try south of the kinnie...

I kinda get bored with walleyes by this time of year anyway, like to wait till the water cools off some more.

Any areas that they are? I usually fish the bluffs, is that a good area for them?

      I love these fish! The attitude is always fun and they taste great. The strip of y bones can be cut right out with a little effort.    I know where I'll be early in the morning May 13th with topwaters and swimbaits!

      Grubens did permits the 2016 season. Fortune bay stopped writing BWCA permits the end of the 2015 season. Sally retired and that ended the permits at the bay.  Some day we will be able to buy permits on line and print them.

      The video shown in the link posted above shows most of the fish they're handling going back because they're not ready or too green. The video was from 4/14 so I would bet they are done as that was 1 1/2 weeks ago. Cutfoot was done in less than a week. Cliff will be able to tell you for sure when then finished but I'd guess they were done by the end of last week.
