      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

fishing the St Croix

Recommended Posts

Guest

I'm new to Minnesota and I would like to do some fishing here. I live in Minneapolis, so I was thinking about fishing the St. Croix river for Walleye, bass, and panfish. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. I also would like advice on where boat ramps are on the St. Croix.

I recommend giving Turk a call and spending
at least a half day on the water with him so you can learn a few spots etc. He knows the Croix real well!!! Jim W

Hire Turk. He's your only hope.
May the Force be with you!!
Seriously, I've fished with him 3 times and had a blast. Ate some yummy walldads and saugers. The education on the river is worth the price of admission.

sonjamike. Turk seems real busy these days. The fish must be biting. smile.gif I just got started fishing the St Croix myself. Got some good advice from Turk. First you should get yourself a good map of the river. I got a hot spots map for the lower St Croix and there is one avalible for the upper also. They show the boat ramps.I used the one at StCroix regional park south of Afton. It's a nice ramp,but like all the ramps on the Croix very busy on the weekends. I had good luck fishing by the mouth of the Kinni, the channel narrows there and alot of stucture. Whatever your fishing for the StCroix has it.I've caught Walleye, Sauger, Northern, Smallmouth, Crappie and Catfish and of course sheephead and carp. I mainly fish for eyes and sauger with a jig and minnow or leech. Slow drifts over different depths and structure to find them works good for me. There's also a good bite on cranks, trolling or casting and that's something I'm looking to do more of this summer and fall. I'm really looking forward to the fall fishing when the pleasure boats park it for the winter. Give it a try you won't be sorry and keep an eye on this site Turk always comes thru with good reports on the bite, what depth and what their hitting on. Good Luck and
Good Fishing.

      Tried South Lindstrom today. Was able to mark some fish, but they were tight to the bottom, and would not move! Got 1 tiny perch. Was only out for a little bit, then the snow really started coming down. Talked to someone else, and they had the exact same results.

      I have two boss toms at my dads and I think a strutter might be the ticket

      I'm really leaning to buying a mojo scoot and shoot amd trying that this year talk about a adrenaline rush.

      I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,

      Shiners and suckers not needed for us this weekend.  The better pike were sucking down my wife’s crappie minnows on a demon in 20 feet.

      I have 3 avian x hens two feeders and one head up. I gave semi strut Jake as well.  I want to get a full strut

      Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!

      Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X.  Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better

      Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia!  But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once.  You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses!  Have fun, good fishing!
