River Smallies!

3 posts in this topic

Hey,

I am a new member to the site, and love it already. I was curious if anyone on the St. Croix has been catching any good smallies north of the 94 bridge. If so how deep and what type of forage are they eating!!!

thanks for the help--fisher98
ps-how is the water level?

smally fishin up there can be real good.Its been a few weeks since we have tried up there
but earlier in the summer when we were getting rain we did really good.
I usually try to find any area where
water was draining into the river and would throw light jigs with a minnow or a crawler.
Make sure the crawler lays straight off the hook and work them slow.The minnows I would keep right on the bottom and jig a lot faster without picking it up too far.
good luck and post any results

Get away while you still can, this site is addicting! Just kidding, Welcome! I've never fishing the Croix because I'm limited to shore fishing, but I'm looking forward fishing it when I get my boat (fingers crossed). If you are really interested in some great info on 'Croix smallies review some of the old threads from the last couple of years. There is a lot of great info on the Croix and where to look for smallie action. Some of the post highlights cover rocky shoreline, minnows = smallie action, and what sections & structure have been producing.
