BAYPORT ICE!!

7 posts in this topic

How thick is it, walking or driving. Want to try the river, don't know where to go. Any suggestions would help. And is there a slot for walleye and sauger?

Thanks sledhead

Sledhead, there is good ice.They've been driving on it for a week.Except I wouldn't get too close to the power plant or the south end by the black railroad bridge.Sauger and crappie are doing OK.Walleyes are running small for me at least.Good Luck Fishing!!! Oh yeah,the minimum size for walleye is 15".None for sauger.

Hi sledhead
The most important thing to remember is that it is a River. And there are parts of the St.Croix that NEVER freeze no matter how cold it gets. Best advice I could give you is do not get adventurous and start driving where you see no vehicles. Stay away from the areas sinker told you about they are dangerous areas.

I would be glad to show you the river. I have fished it for many years. I will try to get you my addy without posting it here. Bots pick up addys on forums not a good Idea to post it.

Fishin's the fun part catchin them is a bonus!

Well I tried today, tried real hard. But with no luck. Got three hits and thats it. Although someone asked me for a cig but didn't have any. Oh well such is fishing. Went out from bayport park on MN side. Going to give it a try again. Can't expect to catch'em all on the first trip. See ya'll out on the ice.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
