I posted a question last night but when it went back to the forum page,the topic space was blank and it couldn't be opened so I'll try again.On Turk's website he mentioned Pool Three in his report.I have lived in the area all my life and have heard pool three brought up now and again but never asked where it was.Where is it?Just wondering.Thanks.

Sinka,

Pool three runs from the Hastings Dam down south to the Red Wing Dam. The area has vast backwaters and runnig sloughs, along with the Vermillion River it's an awesome fishery. The backwaters have trophy Northerns, and Crappie, and a great population of saugers and walleye. The main channel is open (today) and anglers are boat fishing it. The channel cat fishery is fabulous is not world class. I love channel cats and from what I've seen a 15 pound channel cat could pull around any 25 pound Muskie! Believe it....

Back to the Croix I haven't heard much from the Power plant in terms of Sturgeon or cats? anyone else?

Keep Catchin'
Turk

Turk, Thanks for the info.After all this time now when I hear pool three,I'll know what people are talking about.I haven't heard of any sturgeon or cats caught either.I usually catch three or four channel cats through the ice each year fishing for sauger and walleye but haven't this year yet.They sure do give you a good battle when you tie into one!Thanks again.Good Luck Fishing!

      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...

      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.
