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.

      Down visiting in southern WI with family and our neighbors just watched someone go through ice and drown on a small lake near Lake Geneva. Everyone please be careful when checking ice!

      Has anybody gotten a look at area lakes? Any of them locked up yet ? A buddy said he seen a couple guys a little ways out on Bakers Bay and a couple guys on Eagle. Seems a little crazy to me. There can't be much more than an inch or two. Maybe a little more on Eagle since its shallower.
