Mostly crappies, but could possibly get about anything. In the last month I have caught crappie, walleye, sauger, perch, northern pike, smallmouth bass, white bass, sturgeon, catfish and slimy muddpuppies.

ive been hitting the croix all season and can almost guarentee that you will catch a crappie, i would tell you a good spot but the old timers that fish up there would not appreciate all the company, i myself am all for everyone catching fish so ill say that its a couple miles north of 94 bridge there will be a few groupings of people and its the second to last grouping furthest north. BY THE WAY MOST CRAPPIES WE KEEP ARE 10" AND ABOVE. some really nice ones, use a plain green or pink hook or a chartruese jig my fav is the genz worm, tipped with a crappie minnow you should have some good luck.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.

      The reason I asked @eyeguy 54 is during the day that ramp parking lot at Cathedral is always full of student parking. Can't understand how they get away with it. During the week prior to Governor's Opener we never had any issues during the weekdays, but now on school days, we just launch at Wilson Park. BTW, did you find any walleye on the down current sides of the sandbars in that stretch?

      We use to go there until a few years ago. Now we are right next store. I couldn't figured out how to get into my old account so I had to make a new one. My old screen name was deershooter.
