4 posts in this topic

I was on the army corps of engineer link that has the water level and water temp (surface) of the croix, it is showing at 48 degrees is that true? If so, this weekend could definitly be GAME ON

that temp is taken at the bridge in Stillwater... temps tend to run a bit higher downstream - at the "lake" section around Hudson. Either way, the temps are dropping fast and the bite should be headed in the right direction!!!

that's what I was thinking, would it be saw to guess that from stillwater to prescott it would be a 8-10 degree difference

we were out today south of the I-94 bridge... the water temp on my sonar readout was just a hair under 50 degrees. We did pretty well (kept a three-person limit of sauger, threw a few small ones back, hooked up a nice sturgeon, a couple of white bass and a handful of sheepheads) simply jigging with fatheads (the shiners just weren't cutting it although the sturgeon was caught on a shiner). If today's results are any indication, the fall bite should be AWESOME once the temps drop another few degrees.

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in
    • LBerquist
      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases
