summer time trip

Recommended Posts

picksbigwagon

a few friends and I are looking into doing a summer trip on the upper st. croix. Maybe a two day trip starting above st. croix state park and ending at st. croix state park of close to it. Does anyone here have any suggestions of parts of the st. croix that would be a great 2 day float and fish????

not really interested in down by taylors falls, just a good stretch where we can camp one or two nights and get a lot of multidimensional fishing.

Put in at Riverside, above Danbury. Canoe to the Hwy 70 bridge in Grantsburg.

Awesome stretch of the river.

is that trip to grantsburg a two day trip? looks like it could be a long 2nd day. where would a guy park his car in either town where it wouldn't get messed with (i.e. meth heads cutting off the catalitic converters, gutting your car, blocking it up and stealling wheels, etc.) could a person contact the local police and let them know what was going on and ask them to drive by once in a while?

It is a pretty good distance for 2 days with some time to fish along the way. It's about 40 miles. You could put in at Danbury and shorten it by 5 or 6 miles, but the park at Riverside is probably a safer place to leave a car.

There are nice parks at both ends, but you always take a chance. Don't leave anything you can't live without.

Contact Wild River Outfitters in Grantsburg for better info. You may even want to rent a canoe from them and let them drop you off, leaving you with only one vehicle.

      So have had this small lake on my radar seance last spring, was out there and got some really nice crappies a buddy and his dad got some nice northerns, so like I said small lake max death of 5-6 ft and that is pretty much in one spot but does kind of get close to shore where there is trees in the lake. So my thought is to sit on the edge and fish for crappies and toss out a tip up closer to shore??

      Thinking about bring my wheelhouse up there tomorrow far a day of fishing and spend the night any new reports

      Was on Green Thursday , fished from 3:30 to 8:30. Caught 3 nice crappies and some small perch. Funny thing the crappies were caught between 4 and 5. Not a bite after dark,  they  ( or something) was there but would not bite on anything I put in front of them. Caught the 3 in deep water with a frostee and minnow. Good Luck Moose.  I may try Little Elk this afternoon

      The wing bolt on my auger sheared off yesterday. So I spent some time getting the bolt out. Then I was off looking for the strongest bolts I could find. The auger is good to go again. Seeing I have about 5000 holes drilled with it upgrading the bolts is worth it. There is a lot of ice this year and I am not having any issue powering through it with dcd985 and the clam plate. I am getting some of the ice chips out of the hole before busting through, but I did that with the lazer mag too.  I think I am going to hit green lake after dark for some crappies with my father in law.

      Mielkez, I thought that the area you are now targeting was supposed to get the most snow from the coming storm. Cliff

      That’s exactly what finding right now nothing shallow. 20 seems key.
    • james_walleye
      I'd concentrate on the buffalo/annandale area just northwest of the metro. There's a ton of good lakes. Clearwater, Pulaski, pleasant. The list is long.

      Alright guys. Change of plans. My group is concerned about lake travel. After consulting a snowfall map we've decided to stay south of the line that runs from basically Duluth to Lake Winnie area. Were coming from Wisconsin and don't know anything about MN lakes. Rather not do Mille Lacs. Looking for something a little smaller. Not asking for spots. Is there a lake within and hour or two to the north or east of the cities that fishes strong? Looking for panfish mostly with some walleye mixed in. Thanks.

      Pretty sure you DON'T know where this one is.... I see you creeping around, looking for my spots...lol
