Hello All
Site looks cool.
Anyone done any fishing down by the st. croix bluffs state park ? Looking for
the eyes. Been good to me before.
How about north of stillwater for the
muskie.
Any info would be great.
Thanks and hope to here back.

I fished there Saturday with Sucka and again on Monday with my brother in law. The walleyes and sauger were hitting in 23 to 28 feet of water on jig and minnow on edges of the bars. If you launch at St Croix bluffs you know where there is such a spot. That's where we caught most of them. The bite was good from 7 to 10 am then slowed and was nonexistent by noon. Don't know about the evening bite, we went home by 2pm both days. I'll be there again tomorrow morning at 6:30 in a blue Sylvan Backtroller; if you see us, swing by and say hi.

All in all labor day was a great weekend. Boated multiple walleye and sauger, a few sheephead, a rock bass, a small mouth bass, a nice sunny, a FAT 12" crappie, and 3 channel cats.

Choper,

There a few muskies to be raised up from the depth north of Stillwater (i.e. north of Osceola). Depending on the water levels, it makes a difference on their whereabouts. I wouldn't necessarily call it a great muskie fishery yet....

Will be fishing it for muskies later this month hopefully. Hope to get you some more detailed information.

Gem Eye guy,

Your account of when the fish bit, was right on for the way this year has shaped up, especially in the last two months! Unless you've got rain, wind, or overcast it's been tough near the noon time hour - Usually though, as most of you know, that's prime time!!! The water has been up three feet from normal all summer long, so that is what I feebily attribute it to...anyway gang, If I may, my advice until the water gets in the low 60's is pick lowlight times or classic walleye chop scenarios for success...
I can't wait for coldwater vertical jigging on the sippi....

Keep cathcin'

Chopper,

Welcome.

If you are willing to travel to St. Croix Falls to fish the St.Croix, I can tell you there is a fairly good population of muskies on that stretch. I've caught a good number of them bass fishing. And, every single one of them (big and small) has come off a tree hanging in the water. So, I imagine traditional musky presentations would be challenging (unless you're good at flipping a Suick). I suppose jig-n-pig or a jig-n-lizard (proceeded by a handwrapped leader) would be a good way to go.

It's worth trying. I've caught and seen quite a few fish.

      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.
    • h8go4s
      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.
