Pretty slow these parts. I've been putting a bit of effort into Anderson's point and out from Bayport park. Not much happening. Lots of fish stacked, not many willing to play. Is this the norm on the river? Hard to find holes without 'fish' at various levels...confused.gif I was out yesterday morning, the ice is coming in real nice. I measured 8" of good ice at the base of the break out from the park, it was only 3" at best last weekend.

Croixeyes, thanks for going out last weekend. Hopefully the x-mas bum rush doesn't treat you too bad and you can get out fishing soon. If I do find fish, I'll try to put a bow on some of them for you!

ICE QUESTION??? In a typical year are you able to drive up around hi-line point?

thanks, LB

Blueroof.....In a typical year were able to drive on the Croix around the 2nd week of Jan.If things keep going the way they have been that could be a good possibility.Driving on the Croix should not be an exploritory operation though.I usually wait for around 18inches before I trust driving although others will go sooner,we didnt get a good consistant ice base this year like in the past so ill use more caution.Good luck on your upcoming fishing adventures and be safe......

So there is some brave souls tackling the Croix. It has been quiet in this thread. Thanks for the ice update. Looks like I might be hitting the croix soon. The search for the elusive Croix slabbers, is a myth, legend, or is it extinct? Only time can tell.grin.gif Good luck yalls and stay safe.

Blueroof,

You asked about going to various holes and having fish at all levels (or something like that), what you are finding often enough are adult shad....mmm good. Just kidding, well about being good eating.

I've snagged them jigging for walleye and viewed them on the camera.

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir

      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack

      Tried to buy it last Friday and they were not available. System was down/messed up
