Fished saturday by the 94 bridge and Catfish point. Ended up with four keepers (16-20inch)and one really nice crappie. Of course there were several smaller walleyes mixed in and the usual sheephead. Good luck to all

I was out on sunday for a couple of hours. got 2 nice pike, both 30 inches. seems like the high water is goofing up my pattern that has been working- we got a couple dozen smallies but not one walleye. might be the first time i have not gotten a walleye open water fishing the river. I can't wait till smallies open up- god they are fun to catch. man they tast good too! just kidding

Fished Saturday from the 94 bridge south to Afton state park. Caught at least 3 walleyes at each of our stops. They were in the trees normally on the shoreline on outside points everywhere we fished. Strangely enough, we found the most in the flooded city park just south of Afton boat docks. Used Hot-n-tot, crawdad color, dark jigs, blue over silver rapalas. Inside corners over rocks produced 2-3 lb Smallies using the same crank baits. We think that the 10+ walleyes and few sauger we caught (all released) were having a picnic since they were around the submerged picnic tables and barbecue grills!

Do they have the channel markers in yet around the Stillwater area? Haven't been able to make over there since the opener.

Has anyone been fishing around bayport, afton area. Went out last thursday for a couple hours and did o.k. Caught 15 walleye most small and 1 sheephead. Jig and fathead was working the best. Good Luck

We've been doing ok near the Kinni. Lots of short walleyes - few legals. Lots of big silver bass.

I brought my father down to the Croix both Sunday and Monday and we couldn't seem to keep the fish off the hooks. We even tried mixing up our presentations to try to fool the fish but they seemed bound and determined to join us in the boat. We only caught 8 legal fish (all still swimming) but it's fun just to have something pull on the line. We even had the pleasure of doing battle with a little Musky just south of the Hudson bridge. Darn thing broke me off right next to the boat so if anyone catches a little 'sky with a firetiger huske jerk you'll know who it belonged to. As for presentations we started off trolling cranks with leadcore in 20-27 feet of water just south of the Hudson bridge. After getting beat to death by the pleasure boaters we moved down to the rocks between Hudson and Afton. That was the only place we were able to keep the fish out of the boat. Off to Catfish bar pulling lindy's with fatties, rainbows, and crawlers. Went home when we ran out of bait (Scoop and a half of minners and a dozen crawlers). On Monday we hit the river around 6pm and had equal success between Catfish bar and the Washington county park. I was glad that my father was able to experience what a great fishery the Croix has turned into before heading back to Florida on Tuesday.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
