Boat is comming out of storage

3 posts in this topic

I am taking the boat out of storage this week to fish the lower reaches. Anyone else got the boat ready to go yet? I plan on fishing the Red Wing area in the next few weeks, can't wait to get out. Anyone else getting down that way? I know it isn't the Croix but it is an extension of that and I hope to hit the area a few times brfore the ice goes out on the regular lakes around here.

Got out both yesterday and today!!! Hit Pool 4 at sunrise both days. Caught a few until the sun started shining down then they pretty much turned off... Its kind of funny how everyone is saying the water down there is so clear and that's why the walleyes aren't biting - to me, the water looks like it does normally on the Croix but I guess the Mississippi walleyes aren't used to that.... regardless of the reasons, the bite was very slow mid-day and I think pretty much everyone out had the same experience.

So if you going to head 'south', go early or go late, at least until the flow picks up and the clarity goes down.

Regarless, it was awesome being out on the boat! It's going to be a long wait 'til April 28th!

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
