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!

      The lakes took a beating and I was not out on Sunday to see the damage. Saturday I saw the first 4 to 5 inches turn soft. Be careful and check the ice conditions

      6 inch that is a 4.5 inch

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?
