Shore fishing

8 posts in this topic

Hello people of the St. Croix,
A few friends and I are planning a trip to Stillwater for some shore fishing. Could anyone give suggestions on some good spots. Also any boat rental in the area? Thank you in advance.

Good fishing right off the riverwalk in Stillwater. Also right under the bridge on the WI side. You might want to check out Hudson. There is a long point you can walk to the end of where there is a lot more current and deep water. Never know what you might catch there. Good people watching on a hot day too!!

I think Beanies Resort rents boats too. They are on the MN side just below the 94 bridge. Brothers Bait in Stillwater should be happy to point you towards shore spots and places to rent boats. Nice people both places.

By the way, your MN license is good from shore on either side.

I rented from beanies not long ago it was a bit pricey for the two of us 4 hours of rental time plus bait was $60+. The worst part was the amount of time we spent (wasted) trying to anchor with there crappy anchor.

Not saying beanies is bad. They're nice people that are helpful, but Was just a little frustrated with the expierence.

I rented aboat from Beanies a while back. Hated it. The first boat wouldn't start until about 100 pulls. They upgraded us to the big motor 9.9H and that sucked just as bad. Nice people, horrible motors, just my .02.

Perhaps we will stay away from Beanies. Fished the St. Croix on Sunday, caught NOTHING. tryed under the 94 bridge, on the WI side. Also tryed from some little park in Hudson. Where should we have gone?

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      We will see if Sailorfly is another ask a silly question one hit wonder?

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.
