hey turk

Hey Turk, when does(if ever) the StCroix slow down as far as boat traffic? I'm hoping sometime before freeze up. Got a boat this year and am looking forward to getting to know the river in my back yard a little better. I'm hoping after labor day. What's the norm for fall fishing? Lots of traffic or can I look forward to some peaceful fishing trips comming up? You should know better than just about anyone seeing this has been your back yard for how long?
Good Fishing.

Bodyman! ahh peace and quiet...slowly but surely it slows down, the last half of october feels like your the last man standing at the party but no ones there throwing you out!!! Novemeber is barren but prime for pre ice fishing...

Expect good things in the fall in terms of big walleyes and great numbers. The catch is duck season, roosters, and the mighty white tail, time time time. but it's well worth the trips out. Lower St. croix proven techniques are similar to spring fishing and the places (structure)are very close. ( slightly deeper though hard bottoms 18 to 30 feet points and other prime structural spots.)

Good luck I'm looking forward to Icing with you this season.

Keep catchin'
Turk

Turk, I don't bow hunt anymore. Atleast I haven't for awhile. As for ducks I gave them up years ago. About the time steel shot came around. Small game some with my boy. The older he gets the more we'll do as far as hunting again. I would like to concentrate on fishing this fall as much as I can before freeze up. And yes we'll have to hook up this winter,looking forward to it.
Good 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.
