cross lake muskies

5 posts in this topic

Has anyone been fishin this lake. I fished it a couple of times this summer and it seemed like a cool lake. I did not catch and skies but caught about a dozen 3Lbs norts. I was just wonderin what the lake was all about or if a guy could catch muskies all over the snake river?

They are there. North point is good and around the fishing pier on the snake river by the boat launch. Also by the boat launch and fishing pier there are some sturgeon to be had.

How big do the sturgeon run. I have caught hundreds of them when I was younger on the MN river but that breed toped out at about 5Lbs or so. I think they were shovel nose but I could be way off. Anyways thanks for the info I will probably give it another whirl next fall or during the week in the summer.

I don't know how big they are in there. I just get the hearsay from my uncles and grandparents that live on Cross. I personally have never caught one. I would assume they are not Croix, 'sippi sized, but I would imagine they arn't tiny either.

Check out the DNR site below, they caught 3 in their survey. But with as long as that lake it, who knows were they are netting from.

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)

      Well if you are looking in the Minneapolis lake nokomis has a fishing pier   North metro Crooked lake in Andover has a pier. There is a nice park as well and all the sunfish you want to catch no big ones though.
