fishing regulations

This may seem like an ignorant question, but I have never fished the Croix and would like to soon...can one with a MN fishing license fish any part of the st. croix? or do I need a wisc. license to fish the wisc. shore?

Your fine, valid license for either state will do, on either shore, go get them!

You can also fish with 2 lines.

Can you fish with 2 lines even if you are on the Minnesota shoreline?

If you have a Wisconsin Liscense, you cant fish three lines with one hook each...I am not sure if with WI liscense you can fish the MN side with three, or only two...

2 lines in the summer

3 in the winter, in the great state of Packerland.

2007-2008 Wisconsin Regs, Page 6, Angling Methods and Lures;

first one;Illegal...to fish with more than three hooks, baits, or lures

Nothing about lines that I can see.

Page 54: Under Wisconsin-Minnesota Boundary Waters;

You must obey the regulations of the State you are fishing in.

With a Wisconsin License...

This would indicate 3 lines in Swissconsin, 2 lines in Minnesnowta, and where exactly is that dividing line in the River between them???

With a Minnesota License,

Two lines on either side or anywhere between...

I was down by Prescott yesterday from shore and tried to fish with 2 lines, but it was too much work. I missed fish and got my 2 lines tangled with each other, so I just ended up fishing with 1 line. Much easier and ended up catching a couple of eyes on the 1 line in the water. One 15" and one 16". Put them both back, I didn't feel like cleaning fish yesterday, all I wanted was a nice hot shower.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.
    • h8go4s
      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
