I did not have good luck by Prescott last weekend nor did any of the people I talked to. I fished Friday evening and most of the day Sunday and caught nothing. I fished mostly along the break that parallels Bay Point Park in 20 to 40' of water. I live in Hastings so this is the most convenient place for me to get on the Croix. I will be trying it again, probably one day this weekend and the other day I plan to drive up to Bayport.

MidCoast or others,

I have not fished the river before but was hoping to this weekend, I have not had luck finding details on depth and structure. Is there some structure that you would suggest or general information reguarding depth and relative postion to the bottom that you are comfortable sharing. I am also interested in Crappies, is the Prescott area good for this?

Have been seeing more and more cars/shacks on the ice in Prescott in the last week around 5:30 PM. Anyone have any recent reports from this area.

I was down there on Wednesday evening and caught nothing. I did have 2 fish on but lost them before I got a look so I don't know what they were. Both were definately on the small side but at least I had a tug on my line. I marked a few other fish and had a few follow my bait up a few feet from the bottom. The other people I talked to said it was really slow. I'm going down there after work to fish for the evening so maybe I will be able to give a real fishing report later.

      Agreed, 25 does seem big for a 12' boat

      Make sure you take a couple minutes and look for the rating plate in that boat, if it exists it should be back on or near the transom somewhere. I'd be very careful about hanging a 25 HP motor on a 12 foot boat, as it may not be rated for 25 HP. Some 12's are different than others, more depth, more beam, etc. so the motor ratings can vary. Proceed with caution.

      25 hp will be plenty for 12 foot boat with any amount of weight added.  I have no pics, sorry.  As stated really easy to do, your buddy should get er done in under three hours.  Don't spend a lot of money on the boat seats, I bought the cheap ones then added a outdoor chair pad for comfort.

      I was out there on opener as well and caught a lot of small fish. Averaged about 30 walleyes a day but nothing bigger than 17". Last weekend the bite was a lot tougher which I would assume was due to the weather.

      Has anyone heard of a giant walleye caught on the Saturday of opener?  Sounds like the boat called the DNR and they rushed right out to take pictures, etc. Not sure if it was close to the record or not, but I heard it was a giant.

        Wow that looks great! What type of wood did you use if you dont mind me asking?

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.
