Sturgeon.

3 posts in this topic

Went to MN. side,south of road,to escape the crowd.Didn't catch much or see much on the flasher for that matter.I did catch a sturgeon though.In 26' of water on a gold angel eye w/minnow head.Had a tug-of-war for a solid 15 minutes.Finally got the head up the hole and took the lure out with a pliers and it went back down.I didn't want to pull it up in the shack because I thought it would trash the inside.I was alone.It was big.Never know what you'll get down there.Later.

It was a heck of a fight.That's for sure.I thought the line was going to break when the fish would make a run and pull the line against the bottom of the hole.I did change the line that night at home.It was pretty rough in some spots.Never know what you're going to hook into on the St. Croix River.I just wish I could hook into more walleyes!!!Take it easy.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      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!
