St. Croix White Bass

8 posts in this topic

I am going to be fishing the Croix Tuesday and would like to target some white bass. Does anyone know if they are still active up in Hudson? I remember seeing some posts a couple weeks ago about that and would like to give that a try. Any ideas on how deep they are and what presentations to try?

Look for the gulls and also with your sonar, look for the bait clouds and surface activity. If they are feeding they will be pushing the shad to the surface and will whack most anything. I like #5 shadraps in firetiger or shad patterns, small rattle raps in shad, green/gold/ firetiger aren't bad either or if you want to have some fun try working a popper on the surface.

I've had a lot of sucess with a white feather jig with pink/orange head as well as white/charteous spinners.

How late into the season will the silvers be schooling up? My calender isn't looking too good, but I'd like to hit the croix (beanies landing area) one last time sometime this month, just want to know if the white bass will still be active.

      Made it out last night. Beautiful night. Caught a bunch of Crappies, sunnies, a norsky and a few walleyes. All CR. Amazing how quiet the lake was. I was the only boat out for the most part. First boat in parking lot at 5:30 and no AI inspector this time. Have not seen them for quite awhile now.... Water temp was 78. Panfish were caught on simple Jig/plastic in about 12 feet along shoreline weeds. Walleyes on spinner/crawlers in 17-20 on midlake structure.

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      This rain is keeping the rum muddy.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick
