Open for bank fishing?

7 posts in this topic

I see the St.Croix will be closed for boating for the opener. I was wondering if it was closed to fishing from the bank? I don't see why it would be, but I did hear someone say they thought it was closed to all fishing. Any good info would be appreciated.
Good Fishing..

I called the DNR today and got the info I wanted. The Croix will be open to bank fishing, just closed to boats for now. Thats ok with me. I don't have boat :-). Now just have to find a spot with some nice eyes.

ck, It's a blue on blue F150 that I drive. Been fishing the dam at Hudson this last weekend when you can find a spot to fish that is. Seems alot of people are looking for a fishing spot with the boat ban inplace.

Didn't get any eyes, but did catch some nice striped bass, acouple real nice smallies and the buffalo have to be stacked in there real tight. It's was hard to make a couple casts without hitting or snagging into them. Kind of like hooking on to a truck when you hook one in the side or tail. Lost two cleo's and most of my 6#test on sat to them buggers. The big ones you just can't stop them on light tackle. But it was fun. Hope that water goes down soon.
Turk, The river seems to be dropping pretty fast. Looked like it went down about 10" from friday night till sunday night. But then they have more rain in the forcast.
Good fishing

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
