Access Points?

3 posts in this topic

I am kind of new to the area and was wondering where some good access point are for ice fishing on the back waters of the st. croix. I will be coming from the metro area so I am wondering about the stillwater area. Any ice updates would be appreciated as well.

If you are new to the area I dont know if you want to explore much around stillwater or north.The ice has a mind of its own up there and you need someone with.I would stay further south on better ice for now.There is around 6 inches in bayport and you will be able to see where to go.There are people who fish up further north but Im not sure where they access.

Philo, welcome to the St. Croix.It's been kind of slow so far this year but it should pick up.It's a neat fishery.Never know what you'll catch.As far as access goes,like JJB said,Bayport is one spot to get on.I get on in North Hudson.The landing is west of the gas station(Marathon?),used to be a Tom Thumb,on highway 35.Head towards the river until you hit Galahad road.Hang a right and it will take you right down there.Either place you get on,you'll see the crowds and get a general idea of where to go.Be careful and Good Luck Fishing!!!

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
