5 posts in this topic

Anybody use the public launch north of stillwater lately? Is it open? Is it full on a saturday morning? I haven't used it for a couple years so just looking for some info. Thanks!

I drove past there yesterday and noticed that they haven't taken the dock out yet, so it should be good to go. Depending on the size of your boat, it's usually doable to launch even when the dock is removed. I launched last year well into November without the dock.

Cool, thanks. I have a 16.5 ft lunker so it shouldn't be a prob. Hoping to find some crappies this weekend, possibly a walleye or two. I haven't been on the croix since June.

You should be good to go. 2 weeks ago was another story at that laungh in the afternoon.

Good luck and let us know how you did.

I fished today from 7 to 1pm. There were hungry fish in multiple areas, but I only found crappies in one. They were in mid range depths of 12-20 fow. I tried fishing docks, but only found smallmouth bass and sunfish. I kind of wish i would have had some waxies or worms with since they were pretty fun to catch, but tough to hook on minnows. I tried a few walleye spots working a lindy rig and jig n minnow with no luck. It was actually hot out there today even with the wind. There were multiple areas where there are big schools of shad and minnows right now. Now I just need to figure out how to get the walleyes to go. Sounds like someone has them figured out by other reports today.

      There was random ice sheets all over the lake this morning.   Should be ice covered 100% barring it being to windy.   By Friday at the latest.   Could be ice fishing next week in certain areas.   Don

      Was up this past weekend, everything is still open. Should lock up this week though looking at the chilly forecast.

      An older gentleman I know gave me his ice fishing gear last year knowing he wasn't able to use it anymore due to health.  Really tore him up, as I'm sure it would for all of us.  Cleaned up the tipups real nice, and took this photo of one on Leech to send to him knowing they were in good hands and more importantly continue to catch fish!   I'm not in St.Cloud, nor want in for the contest just thought I'd share
