St.Croix falls by the dam

1 post in this topic

I have been upriver recently and the fishing has been nothing short of fantastic for those burly panfish. Sunnies, crappies, rockbass and smallies....oh my! The shallows over rock and rubble shorelines are producing where the current sweeps in. Also, look to the brush and for those larger slabber crappies look in the 12-16' range. Sunfish, rockies, and smallies are all in the shallower water. Feather jigs in yellow, orange, pink and white all work well. 1/16th-1/8th oz for most situations. Gold is also good on any given day as well. Small black twister tails and chartruesse turned fish as well. Jig and minnow/crawler will take all types of fish right now. The feed bag is on! Good luck and good fishing!

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!

      Looks fun Eyguy. As normal no time to get out but did just finish up cleaning and checking over the yak so maybe thats a sign. Haha.
