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 belive you need to pick up permit day before you enter when getting a motor day use permit that's how it works on snowbank

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.
