Great bite yesterday. Mine were all from shore and the saugers were pretty hefty, but the eyes were small.

Turk: I was out all last week and the water was pretty high. Has it gone down yet? When I was on the river I had a hard time getting the anchors to hold in the fast/high water? Also, I am just starting to fish the Croix after about 30 years. Where can a guy fish from shore? I live in Fridley and I have always driven up to Mille Lacs and thereabout but someone suggested I fish the Croix because it is closer and has lots of fish.

Be that as may be "SHE WHO MUST BE OBEYED" has decreed the boat be put away for the winter and I need a good place I can shore fish! Any ideas would be appreciated. I have been fishing from St. Croix Falls to Hudson. Never have fished South of there from shore? Thanks!

UncleKes, as of yesterday afternoon the water was down a good foot around Stillwater from last weeks high. I would guess that it is down even further today.

I see folks catching fish off shore in downtown Stillwater quite a bit. Also above Stillwater, at the scenic overlook, there is pretty good shore access and the depths seem about right with a nice drop off.

Fished yesterday morning, 8am-1pm and found an incredible bite south of Hudson in 17-21ft. Caught mostly sauger and a few nice sized eyes. Most were caught on a 3 way rig with minnow. Boated a nice 21" sauger on a 3 way with a size 4 shad rap in tow. The white bass were active too, making for a full day of catching. My hands are pretty raw form unhooking all the fish.

Blueroof: Thanks for the info. Much appreciated. After I posted the message, I thought to myself "why not just drive over there and spend a few hours driving around and see where they are fishing from shore, dummy?"

Thanks for the report Blueroof, I was wondering when the bite would take off in that area.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
