Ice out on the croix

4 posts in this topic

I was wondering how the ice is doing, between kinni and prescott? Living in Buffalo is a bit of a drive just to look at the river. Looking to go after the whitebass and crappies.

I havent been down that way but I know the Croix is ice free in the Bayport area.The river is up around six feet higher than it was when we had ice,so I would imagine its pretty much wide open,Go get em .

I should be across that way tomorrow; But,only a guess, but I would think it is wide and clear, possible shore ice on MN side in Prescott next to beach if there is anything at all. Water in the Mississippi down this way, as well as the Vermillion, and the Cannon rivers is very high and no visibilty w/ lots of debris. Not sure on any temps as my graph is in Alabama for repair.

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW
