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.

        Oh, says the guy that just took the plunge! I'm sure it will do your little pan fish ok. Let me know if you need a few Walleye's to try?

      I had a battery op Repala a few years ago and sold it to someone else at our campground. Didn't like the way they just zipped through without following the fillets and lost a lot of meat. Really suk's on a partly frozen fish!   Mine came with a case.

      decided to take the plunge and bought a Rapala Ion rechargeable. anybody have one and what do you use for a case?
