Well,as I type right now Im waiting for this early AM storm to pass by.Looks like a pretty good light show is heading this way.Will be looking for fish in the Bayport area this morning.I dont anticipate the weather to hurt fishing,Its not a cold front.From what I saw yesterday up in the Osceola area,we may see the Croix rise some more in the next week.Im a little suprised it hasnt gone up more already with all the rain we have had lately.Good luck this weekend to all,Ill post my findings today when I return..

Today didnt go to bad,found eyes in 18-20fow early on but could only get them to go on crankbaits.Tried rigging and jigging in the same area with no success.Headed south of the 94 bridge to try my luck down stream but drew a blank.The water down south of the 94 bridge was much clearer than up river.You can see the difference as soon as you hit the Hudson nowake.Surface temps ranged from 62 to 66 today.Silvers as usual are commiting suicide.....Good luck out there.........

I couldn't believe how much the river has risen in the last couple of weeks. Saw plenty of walleys and smallies on the camera in 12 - 15 feet but they where pretty tight lipped! Managed a couple of crappies and a bunch of rock bass before the sun went down. It was almost the perfect evening on the river!!

Made it out from 10-2, couldn't keep the crappie off the minnows. Got a couple small sauger on the deadstick trying something different - tied a clown husky jerk rigged on a 3 way 4 ft off the bottom. Ran into a guy at Boomsite launch that got an 11 lb eye north of Stillwater while checking out the fall colors with his wife. He said he got it on a stick bait as well.

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .
