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.

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.

      Plus+1 the lake landings are going to take a huge hit this week.

      Blocks. Make sure it's on blocks. In case it's unclear, use blocks.  I'm more concerned about the accesses than my house. Areas with a slope and melting snow run off are going to be a mess. Add rain to the mix and it's worse. I'll be checking on my house daily and be prepared to make the move off the lake if needed.

      Does the wording even change in the report or just the date?

      Oohhh, I'll tell you what folks, it is just a beautiful day to be in the northland!!!   Heard that one a time or two.   Classic Country Sunday, the opening 15 minutes were the best.
