Fishing walleyes near Hastings

Recommended Posts

1775tiller

I need a little help started dating a lady near Hastings who likes to fish and would like to take her out fishing this fall but I haven't really fished the area. I usually fish Mille Lacs all the time but would like to try the river if anyone has any ideas it would be helpful.

Well there's the pool 2 wing dams that some do quite well on. The St. Croix river which is a great place to fish especially in the fall. There are some other fall spots on pool 3 that are small and will take some time to find but real good fall fishing cand be had as well.

The Croix is probably the best to start with, she's runninhg a bit too high right now with all the rain we've had, but I suppose in a week or so it will come back down some, making the traditional fall areas easier to fish. Jigs and minnows and plugs with and without lead core.

Hopefully you two date for a while, it takes a little time to figure it out....but you got one that fishes, that never hurts. grin.gif

Right now Prescott seems to be the hotspot and is easily accessible from the Hastings public launch. From the Public launch it's only about 2 miles down the river. The area just below the railrod crossing on the St. Croix is being heavily fished right now. If you go there on the weekend there will be boats stacked up on each other, during the week there is a little less traffic. Jigs and minnows are what many of the people are using. From there you can also access a lot of good fishing on the St. Croix or South of Prescott there are many wing dams that usually produce fish but I have not had good luck there since we got all of this rain. Check out the St. Croix river forum at http://www.fishingminnesota.com/forum/postlist.php?Cat=&Board=UBB31 Good luck.

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.

      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
