      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Any St. Croix Guides Out There?

Recommended Posts

Guest

Wondering if there is anyone out there who guides on St. Croix? A friend and I are looking to book a one day trip sometime in the next monthg or so. Neither of us has ever fished the river but have heard from others who have done well. We would be looking for walleye, smallies, maybe pike, possibly even cats. Just wondering the cost and how much time on the water. Any guides out there please contact me. Thanks!

Dude,
Call Turk. 'Nuff said.
Not a bad guy considering he's a Viking fan......

I will throw my name in the hat as well. Note that I only guide north or the Arcola Sandbar. No need for my services south since Turk and Crappie Getter take care of that area.

Heck, I just stay where you can barely get two boats by each other when the water is where it should be. No need to worry. I trust with the four of us, Uncle Dave has good options for whatever he needs.

I've checked rates with a few and am checking with my fishing partner about who to go with. We are looking for a weekday in the next 2-3 weeks. Thanks for all of the tips!

Just wanted to thank you folks for the advise. We booked a trip for early September with Turk and are looking forward to a fruitful trip and a great shorelunch! Hopefully the smallies and wallies are biting. Too many factors to say for sure, but any day on the water is better, well, than most anything!

      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.

      Been very slow around here any luck anyone? don't want the lake but just general feeling around here. Did some pan fishing in 8-10 fow but got very slow.

      Hey Justin, if you see a 2004 burgundy 1500 Silverado with Iowa plates on shields, Yukon tent. That's the girlfriend and I. Stop by for a Busch latte, or a white Russian. I can't wait to get out of Iowa for the weekend. 4 am on the road!!!!!!!! yeah baby!!!!!! Good luck!!

      There was a couple mixed in the bucket. They were big shiners 5 to 6 inch range. The shiners would be down for 6 hours or so each time and we never waited that long for a sucker to be taken. Just our experience. If a guy could have both I say try and see.
    • Wanderer
      Call ahead for shiners.  I’ve heard there aren’t any left in the state.  At Mille Lacs 2 weeks ago I asked for some and the guy looked at me like I was stupid. Of course I blame that on the question... 
    • Jplante
      Fowldreams, did you have shiners? Just curious if preferred them over shiners, or thats just what you had.
    • fowldreams
      suckers, suckers, suckers. This was the only bait that worked for us last weekend and when the fish hit the rattle reels line spooled fast.

      What surprised me about the fishery in SE Florida is that it is mostly live bait (Shiners). There are so many fish in those channels that the Peacock's won't chase a bait for long. I guess they can be caught on the fly but your casts needs to be very accurate and your hookset quick because they spit the flies fast. Our guide said artificials could be done but you're going to spend all day to maybe catch a few fish. Watching the videos of those Amazon Peacock's destroying topwater plugs and jerkbaits looks like a riot!!!
