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'

      Sounds pretty slow, I was up and out of Zipple Bay on Monday and Tuesday in about 26 ft. of water and did OK. Good mix of nice sauger and walleye. I think they closed the road to trucks and just letting atvs out now. Good luck on the river.

      We got ours from springsteel, they had some at the bait store in warroad. Couldn't find ciscos, warroad had smelt though.

      Arrived at Morris pt. Fri. afternoon fished a spot I did well on earlier in the year in 18 ft. Ended up catching 10 walleye of which 8 were under 12 inches. The 2 keepers were 16 inches each. That was between 4 pm and 7 pm Used the snowmobile there was enough slush to keep the slides cool. Sat. morning went deeper because of a report I heard. Caught 1 small walleye moved several times between 29 ft and 20 ft. At 1 pm went back to my spot in 18 ft banged 3 more walleyes 2 15 inchers and a 12 incher. then nothing .Off the lake by 2pm had work to do. Wished I would of started there but that's fishing.Talked to 3 guy's in the cleaning house that road there wheelers to Bridges they had there limits plus 3 huge perch and a few tullies. On a side note coming home today saw numerous boats both coming and going. Time to jump on board and hit the river..
