Before the weather gets nice and we all stop using the ice fishing forum until next year I thought I would just say how much fun it's been on here with all you guys this year.It was great to meet and fish with several of you.All serious fisherman.I really like the tips I've picked up on here and out on the ice.The river was much better this season than last season.I gave up on it last year and fished other places but this year it was really fun.It's not over yet! Good Luck Fishing!!!

Hey Guys,
I also have to say that it was great meeting everybody. I'm only disappionted at myself, that I never knew how great the river can be in the winter. As you can see I'm not on the river yet, maybe later this evening. I had to spend this morning plowing. But with the icefishing season coming to an end, that only means that the open water season is just begining. Don't forget Sinker you will always have a spot on my boat this summer, TRZ and Chris your also welcome.

Good luck

Mr. Special, that would be great to fish the river in the boat.Like I said,I've lived in this area all my life and practically lived down at the river as a kid in the summer, but haven't been out on it in a boat very much.I have a small fishing boat that I leave at the camper up north but after talking to you guys I might bring it down and fish in the general area that we ice fish in until the pleasure boats take over.Talk to you later.

Sinker - nothing wrong with a small boat on the St Croix. Stick in the many "no-wake" areas and there are lots of fish to be had - - also north of Stillwater can be lots of fun.

Sturgeon46, sounds good.It's an old 14 foot aluminum that I bought from my wife's grandfather but it's solid.The lake it's on is real small and I have an old 5 hp that does ok but I would like to get a little bigger and newer motor for it.I think I'll bring it down this spring.I know as a kid I caught alot of big walleyes right from shore in the spring on the river.Take it easy.

How did everyone do this weekend. I never made it out Saturday. By the time I got done plowing, blowing and shoveling, it was 5pm and I my back was killing me. Then Sunday came alone and it was just plain cold. Hope everyone else did better than me.

Good luck


Softwater here we come

      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.
