Good time to get on the water?

4 posts in this topic

Anyone know when the river iced out on St. Croix river from Stillwater to Prescott?

When do people start fishing on the river in this area?

Where is a good spot for launching a boat in early spring?

I know parts of the channel is open but not sure if the boat launch is free of ice. around 94 I know the channel is but around stillwater it is still frozen over.

here is a website from turk that has a map that might help find a boat launch.

Off the top of my head I would say ice will be off in about 3 to 4 weeks, then a handfull of anglers will fish for crapppies and white bass. Launch from Beanies or the Stillwater Boom site launch, City launch in Hudson, WI, or the Bluffs Regional Park in Cottage Grove, or Prescott WI city launch.

Keep catchin'

Thanks for the tips. Hopefully with the warm weather we're getting, it won't be too long.

      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!
