A very good morning on the river. Trolling shallow worked great today from just before sun-up til 8:30 or so. The new Minnow Rap's were the hot ticket! Green and Blue seemed to be most effective. The fish are becoming more active every trip out. I managed 15 fish today (They are all still swimming) in a 4 hour trip. Lot's of people catching fish now, which is great to see. Despite, the occasional fish tail, this has been a tough year for most Croix anglers. The fall is shaping up nicely!!

Try the yellow and brown(hot mustard colored) minnow shad. It has produced nicely for me down your way. They seem to run about the same as a no. 7 shad rap. I like the concept and so far the fish have too! Good report!

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.

      It's true, people were driving out on the river yesterday, but the ice is melting quickly and the current has picked up.  The snow cover is gone and there is about 1" to 2'' of standing water.  This extended warm weather has me worried.   Personally, I think vehicle traffic is "Iffy" now.  Be careful.

      The webcam has been running for a few days now. I was watching it on and off all day yesterday and saw a fair number of vehicles going on and off the lake. But I haven't seen anything yet this morning. I was thinking about going out tomorrow, but I'm starting to get a bit nervous. I may call Harty's this afternoon and see what they say.
