Anyone know if fish are being had around the confluence of the Croix/Sippi area?

Pretty slow Saturday morning. I was out from 6:00 - 11:00 a.m. I only saw one fish caught. It was not in my boat! The reports from guys that I talked to were favorable from last week. I am not sure what was wrong yesterday but it was a slow morning. I think the best is yet to come in the Prescott area.

Water temps around marine this weekend were 55-56 and the water was as low as I have seen it this time of year. On the upside, I caught a bunch of white bass and had a blast on saturday afternoon. Had a good meal of them tonight and can't wait to get back out there again. I heard they are hot and heavy up around Taylors falls as well!

Jloomis, It was good to meet you the other day! Never know when you are going to run into a fellow FM'r so I always ask now. I am hoping to get back out a couple times this week before the opener. Again, thanks for the fishing report and it was nice to meet you!

I was down there on Saturday as well, had a couple of bites along with a couple of snags on jigs (both meat and plastics). I was even skilled enough to catch myself a rock. After a couple of hours of the same old same old we decided to pull some cranks up shallow (< 12 fow) and it took us about 10 minutes to tie into our first one (26") and 10 or 15 minutes later had a bigger one on which threw the hook before getting it into the boat. Guess it didn't want it's picture taken. We had our luck on #5 glass shadraps pulling them along at 1.1 - 1.3 mph. We were hitting an area that had some scattered rock piles which the fish seemed to be relating to. Definitely one of those days that if you keep your mind open and willing to try different techniques good things might happen.

Hey fanatic- What kind of fish did you hook in to? 'Eye, rough fish...

Both of them were eyes. I don't have a positive ID on the type of rock yet so to tell you the truth I don't know for sure if it was in season or not. I believe the rock was done spawning because it was relatively thin so I didn't feel too bad about keeping it. I'll be splitting my time between Prescott and Hudson this coming weekend if my beautiful bride will give me the pass. Say hey if you see a Tracker Tundra down there. I'll probably be able to give you a lot of techniques and locations that didn't put fish in the boat.

I was hoping to maybe get out either Thurs day evening or Friday am this week. I wil know about thursday probably by tomorrow. I guess you wouldn't mind fishing out of the "TINCAN" as I affectionately call it. Been a boat for me to fish from since it was brand spanking new in 76! Doesn't leak and floats the skinny water pretty well too! I'll post when I find out about Thursday night.

Went there on Sat. Shore fishing. One keeper, white bass, the rest are under slot limit(under 15). The bite is on right at dusk. Using rapala and jigs. The bigger the bait the bigger the fish.

      I've been out shore fishing a couple times at Hidden Falls and Minnehaha up to the dam.  Been really slow for me too.  Going out again this morning for the first time in a couple weeks.  Hoping to find a better bite as I've been hearing slightly better reports from boaters in the area.

      Well I ended up picking up the Cabelas zone specialist on sale for $160 plus I had a coupon in the mail for 20 off A $150 purchase
      Picked up a new chair and a power owl call ( Im pretty sure I can call better with no call than that thing) I had a 200 gift card so I walked out of there with 17.00 credit
      Not bad I say I really liked the blind I sat in them all that were set up with my chair and I grabbed a bow from the archery department. I know people will probably disagree but dare I say from what I seen I like it better than the bullpen even.
      It seems to me to be made of a good material too and I can see it lasting awhile as I will take care of it and I am not going to leave it out for days on end. We will see how it is to hunt out of soon.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

      tipupsonly it was very hard to just sit and not fish. Yeah it was very very warm up there. I'll walk out if I have to!!!! It'll be my 3rd weekend up in a row.  Love this time of year.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.
