High water

4 posts in this topic

I'm betting that the water will stay fairly high for the opener, which should mean good fishing! Good luck!

Turk, have you had much luck with ringworms on the croix. I tried them last fall catching some sauger and walleyes. The sheepies seem to like them quite a bit too. Any advice for high water walleyes. I can usually find fish in the low water, but I had a tough time last year during the high water in late may/early june. I tried some of the rocky shorelines with little success when the water was up. Do these areas need to have wood or other structure to hold fish? Can't wait to find some of those wonderful croix walleyes in May.

Usually note the word usually - the eyes won't hit plastic once the water warms, at least it's true that plastics are a better cold water bait or produce best in the cold water.

From what your email said it sounds like you are doing the right stuff, just keep at it! A few hours shallow doesn't mean fish, basically I'd say keep the nose to the grindstone, and they'll show up. Also spots do not need wood to hold eyes.

Keep Catchin'

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.
