Bayport Report

The crappie and sauger bite was hot and heavy on 12/26.Numerous happy anglers were seen with half pails of crappies.One was even measured in at 15 1/2 inches.The majority of those were taken in 22 to 26 feet of water around "The rock pile". Saugers were found hanging in 30 to 35 feet of water, mostly to the north of the small city that sets up there daily.One sauger measured in at 19 inches,that was an awesome sight. Morning bite seemed the best,with some saying that they were catching crappies before the sun even came up.

I've fished the St Croix by N Hudson, but am not familiar with the rock pile. Is that in the area close to the Minn side by the power plant? Also where do you get on the ice? Thanks for your help.

You can walk out onto the ice from the park in Bayport.If you're coming from the south,turn right just before the little gas stationas you're coming into Bayport.Follow that straight forward over the railroad tracks to the parking area.It's only about a 200 yard walk out on fairly nice paths.
Hope this helps you on your next trip.

As always, please be careful, ice is never safe and river ice that much more so. Use all due caution.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
