      Has anyone successfully fished for Burbot/eelpout on the lower St. Croix? Based on the DNR fish survey reports it looks like my best bet would be by the Kinni narrows. The numbers there look good.
       
      My current plan is to try perpendicular to the sand bar on the north end stagnant water where it drops from 5 to 40 ft depth. I'll drill a set of holes starting in the deep and ending just short of the sandbar shallows. Then I'll progressively fish from deeper to shallower water as sunset approaches finishing up in 10-15 ft of water. I've got a couple poles rigged with glow buckshot rattle spoons and I'll buy some fatheads in Prescott to put on the trebles.
       
      If anyone has a better location on the Croix or reasons why this is a fools errand I'm all ears.

      We I just rolled into the Cass Lake area right at prime time.  So I quickly drilled a few holes until I marked a few fish and set up.  Man the wind is howling!   Any rate the bite is slow but steady and I've landed several 12" crappies like this one.

      Then a bit later stuck a thick slab just shy of 15".  Here's a pics of him heading back.
      Caught fish on a gently sloping flat about 24 fow.  Got fish on both minnows and plastics.
      I'm here for a few more days so hopefully will have a few more to add.

      So my family is doing a big reunion for like a week at a resort on Moose lake (the one just NE of Cass). My uncle from Hawaii is coming, and he's a fishing nut, so I was hoping to get him on some LM bass while he's here. Does anyone have some suggestions for where to catch em on Moose or surrounding lakes? 
      I'd like to do some top water frogging over Lilly pads so he can see how fun it is, but I'm sure he'd be happy catching em any way we can. 
      Anything helps. 
      Thanks,

      Fishing in the Bemidji area has taken a bit of a hit, and anglers have to work a little harder for their walleyes than they did a week or two ago. The jig bite is a thing of the past, and people rigging crawlers or leeches on the breaklines are starting to out-produce the guys fishing with jigs in shallow. Bottom bouncers and spinners with a crawler is also working very well on outside weed edges and off the breaks. The crankbait bite remains good over the sand and cabbage, as well as around mid-lake rocks and rubble. Salmo Hornets in 6-11' of water going 2.4 mph has been working well for us.
      Bass are hot right now, with smallmouth on the ledges waiting to ambush their next meal, and largemouth in the deep vegetation soaking in the 77 degree water temps.
      Panfish anglers should all rejoice, as July is the month of the plate-sized bluegill and the mid-summer slab crappie. Look for deep cabbage, and work it over with safety pin spinners or a bobber and wax worm. Mid-lake structure with cabbage is the best this time of year.
      Musky anglers are reporting a hot bite right now, with people seeing or catching fish on most every trip. Many of our walleye clients have lost baits or even fish due to muskies being overly aggressive. I'd venture to guess that now is the time for the musky hunters to smile.
      Plenty of fish to be had before summer is over! Give us a call!

      Who's gonna be up on the lake next week??  Last year we had a small group sharing fishing info over text and it worked pretty well.  Let me know if you're interested and we can get set up.  Fishing should be good!

      I heard that crawlers on rigs with a small spinner or a slow death hook is working real good pulled through the cabbage weeds.  Anybody doing anything out there?

      Just looking for general advice... Taking our grandson on his 1st Rainy Lake boat camping trip, 7/01-7/05. We'll be near Kempton Entrance on the east side. I've been here many times before, but never over the 4th. Plan to target all species, but want 'eyes for supper. Are the walleyes on the reefs yet or still transitioning? Depths? Leeches or minnows? Bass/pike still in shallows? Main goal is to give him some opportunities for some fish. Thanks 'Pout

      Hay Creek in Red Wing is probably your closest option.  Otherwise the Kinni, Rush, etc, just over the boarder in Wi is a good fishery.

      I was kind of restless last night so since it was a bit windy I decided to go for a quick trip to a nearby small lake that I rarely go to. Tried lindy rigging leeches but the sunfish were on the chomp! I eventually went to a shallow weed point and marked a bunch of fish. Started pitching small jigs/plastics and absolutely pounded the crappies. I have never in my life caught so many small ones. Lots of 5-7" with the occasional big one 13-14" mixed in... I did not feel like cleaning fish so tossed all back. Should be a phenomenal crappie lake in a couple years...

      Welcome Rachelkate21 to the forum.  "brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout?" That is a pretty high order around Lakeville or anywhere. You may have to go south of you around Whitewater or up north in the arrowhead area. Best bet is check out the MN DNR site for Trout streams and their locations within the state. Good Luck!

      Wanderer ,I believe Ely seizure was something to do with the BWCA . Lots of articles in newspaper .Some law about no commercial activity ( an active viable fishery) in side of park unless it enhances park like canoe rentals ect.... They were trying to stop Fishery for last number of years. I believe DNR does not want to do away with Frozen Bait Market , they just don't want fish from the Great Lakes or other contaminated areas to bring diesese to inland lakes.  If fish does not have a VHS Certification Number on its package , I would not be using it for bait.  Grocery store stuff totally Illegal ...  I emailed a Bait Company that has VHS Certified Smelt and Alewifes   info@awesomeadventuresfisheries.com     They gave me a list of stores that carry their products ... Save hunting around for Legal Bait   Hope this Helps

      We only fished for 5 hours (only 2 hours were worthwhile 29 ft).

      OK so day before father's day we had terrible weather. 1st spot was in 14 ft of current n we caught 4 eyes. Did c a sturgeon role but waste of time other than that. Next spot 6 eyes still a wasted time cause of the weather but the old man did caught a 20 in so it wasn't all that bad. But once the weather allowed we catch  26 eyes n in 29 ft of water n one was 24 in.

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.
