Walli'

I'll be out on the river Satrday but I'm planning on fishing mid afternoon till the P.M.. Gotta prefish a bit and see whats out there for structure before the Riverrat tourney. I'm planning on trolling some cranks and might even twist a few live bait rigs but primarily I'm looking for the active fish on cranks this weekend. If you see a crestliner with tan and brown graphics & 90 yammie, motor up and say hello. I know you"ll be off the river by then but if you are out, stop and say hello.

Yep, coldfront conditions will make it a tough bite. Does this seem to affect the eyes down there like it does in lakes? I have found that in the upper Croix they continue to bite but with a bit less intensity. I'll keep an eye out for you Croixeyes. I am taking my dad out with me to see what we can dredge up out there. I'm sure the sheepshead will be willing to bite they seem to like my presentations grin.gif.

Tunrevir..I havent seen a presentation a sheepshead dosent like.As far as cold fronts on the river,down here is much like up river.Unless its an extreme front the fish do bite,maybe just a little slower.Our problem down here is the amount of forage in the water now,they say match the hatch but I think you have to make it look a little different from everything else....Good luck tomorrow...

I'm all set 3 dozen redtails in the bait well, 8 dozen crawlers in the cooler, coffee pot set for 3:00, alarm set for 3:15, warm gear in boat, reels oiled, new line spooled, new batteries in GPS, full of fuel, can you feel the blood pumping?? Going to hit the river early grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Thanks Croixeyes,

Good luck to you and to Walli. Sounds like he is bringing in the red tailed army tomorrow. Walli, post how you did when you get back. I might have to make a quick bait shop run and shift my gears a bit. I was planning on bringing down a few small suckers and some crawlers just in case the crank bite is off. I thought that I'd try a few different depths, crankin combos and speeds to see if I can turn a fish or two. I might even have to take out the heavy lead and just bang them on the head a bit. Redtails in the metro? Any hints to where a fella might pick one or two up? I'm thinking about putting in at Beanies or up at Bayport. One good thing is that witht the cool weather the "boat" people will not be giving us to many wakes to deal with. grin.gif Good luck to all, I'll be in a tan crestliner with brown and tan graphics and a 90 yahmaha, frs radio tuned to 3 sub channel 7 shooting to get on the water by 3:30 p.m..

      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!

      Hello FM family!!  I HAVE A 2000 18.5' Fisher DXV boat and am having problems of water getting into the boat.  I have filled up the bottom of the boat with water to see if something is cracked on the boat itself and have found nothing.  It seems like the only time water comes in is when I use live well pumps. I have a guy replacing all the hoses that would have water going through them to see if one is cracked.  The water that comes in is enough that I have to run the bilge pump about every half and hour.  If I forget to run bilge then I have so much water I can't get up on plane when I take off.  Once the hoses are replaced and water still gets in, what would be my next step??  Cracked livewells??? I have two of them in this boat.  Any ideas??  Thanks!

      I'm doing a day trip there on Saturday, will post afterwards. I plan to just fish the big basin area humps and points.

      Just looking for general advice... Taking our grandson on his 1st Rainy Lake boat camping trip, 7/01-7/05. We'll be near Kempton Entrance on the east side. I've been here many times before, but never over the 4th. Plan to target all species, but want 'eyes for supper. Are the walleyes on the reefs yet or still transitioning? Depths? Leeches or minnows? Bass/pike still in shallows? Main goal is to give him some opportunities for some fish. Thanks 'Pout

      Hay Creek in Red Wing is probably your closest option.  Otherwise the Kinni, Rush, etc, just over the boarder in Wi is a good fishery.

      I was kind of restless last night so since it was a bit windy I decided to go for a quick trip to a nearby small lake that I rarely go to. Tried lindy rigging leeches but the sunfish were on the chomp! I eventually went to a shallow weed point and marked a bunch of fish. Started pitching small jigs/plastics and absolutely pounded the crappies. I have never in my life caught so many small ones. Lots of 5-7" with the occasional big one 13-14" mixed in... I did not feel like cleaning fish so tossed all back. Should be a phenomenal crappie lake in a couple years...

      Welcome Rachelkate21 to the forum.  "brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout?" That is a pretty high order around Lakeville or anywhere. You may have to go south of you around Whitewater or up north in the arrowhead area. Best bet is check out the MN DNR site for Trout streams and their locations within the state. Good Luck!
