early season smallie tactics....

4 posts in this topic

Anybody have ideas on how to find the smallies on the Croix (North of Taylors falls)? I know how to find 'em in summer and fall, but what do I need to consider for the early season? When is it legal to fish for 'em on the Croix?

Hey Tunrevir, I suppose you'll be making your presence somewhere, eh?

I have done well in the past fishing slack water just off the current pitching a white jig tipped with a plastic or gulp. Opener for smallies north of TF is May 26. Good luck

I agree. For some reason early season I do really well with the color white. Curley tails, jerk shad...etc. Topwater is good earlier morning too!

I definitely agree with the color white. I'll use 3" white powerbaits and just nail 'em! It doesn't stop at smallies either, I'll get my share of walleyes and northerns too.
