9..24 Report...

9 posts in this topic

Well,I hit the Croix again today to continue the punishment from Saturday.I decided to hit the crappie bite again this morning and that at least,is still going strong.Pulled around 40 fish,kept 15 for the fryer.After that I thought Id try my luck at trolling, and after a couple of hours with only one sauger to show for it I started rigging. Rigged redtails for about an hour and missed 1 eye at the boat and pulled a 21.5.Almost forgot what they looked like.....Good luck out there...

Thanks for the report eyes. Might try to hit it tomorrow evening. More than likely go after the ski's some more, maybe see if we can get some eye's to cooperate.

Tough time finding redtails and keeping them alive when I do. Any tips?

Redtails need higher oxygen levels than most minnows. Best if kept in an aerated baitwell. If you have them in a trolling bucket, keep in the water out of the sun as much as possible.

Would you care to share what you are using for crappies?

All ive been using is 16th ounce jig and a crappie tube.A variety of colors have been productive.White and chartruse are tops.With the cold front having move in they may have dropped down closer to bottom,but still should be very aggresive.You cant rule out live bait but when they are pounding the baits like they have been,it just takes to much time to bait up.

If you dont mind me asking which area of the croix was you killin these crops at. I usually catch crappies only by accident, except in the spring I got a killer spot on the Croix for them. Great report.

        Oh, says the guy that just took the plunge! I'm sure it will do your little pan fish ok. Let me know if you need a few Walleye's to try?

      I had a battery op Repala a few years ago and sold it to someone else at our campground. Didn't like the way they just zipped through without following the fillets and lost a lot of meat. Really suk's on a partly frozen fish!   Mine came with a case.
