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.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
