CHA-CHA-CHA- Changes

This is a short post of speculation.We have had some very nice cold fronts coming through lately.Im thinkin the walleye bite may start to ramp up in the next week here.As you have read some of the posts as of late,Eyes have started to come up into a little skinnier water.Their comfort zone is expanding as the temps drop.The live bait of choice will be minnows once again,but dont count out crawlers either.They will however still relate to the baitfish in the river so it helps to spot these on your electronics in the area you are fishing,that shouldnt be a problem since they are everywhere tongue.gif.Crappie will also be close to the areas they have been in the last three weeks,they may drop a little deeper though and start to do a little more suspending.And last but not least you may be seeing more large craft getting covered in blue plastic grin.gif.Im sure everyone will miss getting swamped by them.

yeah i'm gonna miss those boats tongue.gif i mean how many of us get those bikini wearin' women in our boats suntannin' and lookin' all classy confused.gif think mabe it's all those hooks laying around? i don't know just a theory. best time of the year it seems to me is springtime durring croix opener but this time is the most satisfying. after competing all year with boatzilla's it's nice to be able to stand up and jig or cast and not have to look over your shoulder every 3 seconds looking for the swells. i'm new in here and i see theres plenty of folks here that love the croix as much as i do. did'nt think it was possible. to who ever started this site i'm proud to be a registered user and thank you

I could be biased, but I think my wife looks just as good as those bikini wearing rich girls, and she smells better with those walleye slime covered hands grin.gif

Hoping the Mrs. doesn't know how much time I spend on this site. I just remind her how many of our friends are golfers. She rather be in the boat jigging than putting up with Muffy and Chip in the club house grin.gif

Nothing better than a wife wearing your flannel and cuter than those on the big boats.

      G'day guys, I've started up this post as I will be visiting Minnesota (to be specific the Stuart Lake in the Ottertail Lake area) and I would love to hook into some fish! I'm originally from the Netherlands, have lived in Australia for the last 8 years working as a fishing guide, I have moved to Dallas TX with my wife and now we will be visiting my in-laws in Minnesota. I would love to catch Musky, which I know West Battle Lake holds, and of course Walleye. I have been trying to look for areas that hold smallmouth but was unable to find any. I don't have a boat up there or anything so I know I will be in a massive disadvantage for musky but I will give it a try with waders. I would love to get as many tips as possible! Cheers!

         Personally I do seem to catch quite a few overs, some days it can be a challenge to find keeper fish ( stupid problem to have, huh?). One thing I notice is that all the fish seem to be very thick through out the classes.   While I was tackling some honey-do's I noticed that the breeze was a bit stiff, I'm sure it was a challenge to maintain a line or consistent  speed.   Over all was it a good day for you?

      Nope that's exactly what I wanted to hear thank you probably will go to look at gander in forest lake to see if they have anything good left
    • ZachD
      There are good bass in Crooked too

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.
