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..

      No internet in the field today. Had a group sky busting keeping birds out of anyone's range. Riverrat and I got buzzed by teal a few time and a pair of woodies scooted through. Should have had a shoveler and some woodies. The bugs were so bad I lost 4 pints of blood. 

      Now to the fun parts Finn was jumping woodcock son the fields on our way out. Finn did good but does not like no action. After leaving the refuge I checked my dads pond. O yeah there was a woodie sitting on the log bang!! No finn needs to do his job.

      Finn did good he got it and brought it back to me!! Way to go Finn. 

    • Lindy came along on our trip to Western MN for duck opener. The guys that came out Thursday to start scouting had a field lined up with alot of geese but they got busted off the roost early in a huge flock and didn't commit. We ended up with only 2 birds today.  She had to stay back in her crate during the hunt but got to play with a wing afterwards.

      what size screen does your new unit have----------------I have a 5 inch helix with side imaging and for me it worthless-------------------the screen is TOO small to see whats going on.  I wouldn't buy any unit that didn't have at least a 7 inch screen.  What unit is your new one??

      I've got a powerdrive also...............my unit would run fine out of water,in water no way.  The prop would barely turn.  I ended up replacing the board the unit and it runs like champ now.  I had it to a dealer and they told me there was nothing wrong with it----------but ,they only bench tested it and did not do a tank test

      Fished Thursday in 30 feet out of the gap and did very well. Couple of slots and a couple of dinks but mostly nice keeper size fish, had to quit early in the day because we had all our fish. Should only get better from here on out I would think.

      Feels like fall this morning!  I was yesterday morning with my son. We did some trolling and it was really good.  I think I might try to get the jigging rods out today and give that a go.  First headed to see the wolves with the kids.
