Thanks for reply Gem Eye Guy.
Girl freind and I went out saturday morning. We did not do so well. Just got your reply.
Used crawlers and jighead. Worked the Wis.
side south of landing. Then Minn. side north of the landing. Should have used
minnows I take it. Did catch the sheepshead and cats.
Hope u had better luck.

choper 36,

Try fishing around the Prescott area around the no wake zone. Jigs and minnows have been picking up some decent fish. The mornings from first light until about 9am have been the best. Don't be afraid to wonder into the mississippi downstream of Prescott either. The bite will really heat up into October-November in this area. Right now key on the 18-25' range.

Good luck,
crappie getter.

Fished right out in front of St Croix Bluffs harbor this morning (Sat. Sept 7). The walleye/sauger bite was good from 6:30 to 9:30. All we caught after 9:30 was channel cats.
They were a little shallower today (18 to 20 feet) than they were on Labor Day weekend (23 to 28 feet). I think this was mostly because the water has risen 6 inches since Monday.
Yes jig and minnow was the ticket. A stinger hook's not a bad idea either.

Hey Gem did you get any fat saugers like the one you picked up the weekend before? I have yet to get back down there, but it's on my list of places to go that's certain!

      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.

      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.
