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.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.

      Yep. I'm on Schultz's Bay. Which side are you on?   Had to head in to Alex today around noon so I took a little side trip to Manthey's Bay because that is typically the first area that has walkable ice. Stood at the 145th Ave access. To the right was all open water, straight out was ice for maybe 30 feet and then open water and that extended to the left into Manthey's Bay for a ways. The rest of the Bay looked frozen over from what I could see from there. Nothing anywhere on the lake looks like it would be walkable yet. Lots of ice on the lake and still making more. The winds have been keeping small pockets of water open scattered through out the ice that has formed so the ice thickness is going to be very inconsistent for a while. The winds have started to die down so with calmer winds I would think the lake might lock up in the next day or two. Just so the snow stays away for Saturday.

      Picked up my first custom rod, a TUCR power noodle, the new black Betty free fall and plenty of tungstens!

      This afternoon I checked Norris lake and it is locked up except for a few small holes in the middle.  Twin lakes on the other hand is wide open. Pic is of Twin lake.
