Big Thanks to Turk, Walli1, Tunrevir, and others

3 posts in this topic

I just want to say a big "Thank You" to Turk, Walli1, Tunrevir, and all the others that share their knowledge on this forum. The information is extremely helpful especially to rookies like myself who are trying to learn how to fish the river. Thank you very much.

I haven't had a lot of success yet, but I'm looking forward to getting out more this Fall.

Good luck! Enjoy!

Yup... I'll throw my thanks out to those guys and others as well... This is just my second year out on the Croix and I have gained a lot by reading these posts and pulling whatever info/tidbits I could find.

Indeed, I certainly am thankful for this forum as well. I check it out every day. I have been fishing the croix for about 6 years-maybe 7. Anyhow, I really enjoy reading on what's working, who's catching what and what presentation is being used. The river is such a beautiful place and I'm beginning to learn what an Outstanding fishery the croix really is. I must confess that I've been cheating a little. I've recognized certain boats and seen how productive they are. I've taken close notes on what lures are being used-what kind of gear (lead core line-length of snell..etc) and employed said tactics to my own routine. It's been helpful but there have been days when not much was biting. Anyhow, thank you gentleman for providing this forum. It's much appreciated by this fisherman and I hope to see you all on the water.

Blessings to you all.

      Thanks for having me Minnesota. I wasn't able to float the Ottertail river but I did fish the lake every morning. Most fish the first 3 days came on top water whopper plopper. The last day, the water temperature heated up to almost 80 so I changed it up a little bit and fished deep water 10-20 feet and caught fish deep. Here's some of the better fish from this week. The fishing up here is great. Can't wait to make it back.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow
