Sunday - 2nd Day Open, 2nd S-L-O-W Day...

5 posts in this topic

Spent 10 hours yesterday and 7 hours today on the Croix. Today was worse then yesterday. At least I saw "ONE" Walleye caught yesterday out of a Ton of boats, luckily I got 2.

Today, I saw "Zero" caught, luckily I caught one 17". That's it. Hmph!

Most all fish marked were in 14-17 feet, nothing shallower, not much deeper.

Could be the "Nice" weather, but who knows for sure.

I'll hit it again in the Monday morning.

I'd say give it a week and things will take off. My guess is there is a bit of post spawn blues going on. I caught a sauger last week that was milting yet while fishing for white bass so we may have the tail end of the pawn going with a bit of a lag before the bite picks up.

How was the crowd today? Did you fish in the spots as yesterday? Not sure if I am glad I stayed home and finished the yard or not. confused.gif

It was a smaller, later arriving crowd. I fished the same places, plus another couple spots. There are probably several factors why it's slow, but they gotta be biting somewhere! smile.gif

I'll hit it again and take off to some other places shortly after if it's slow.

See ya all out on the water...

Tim, sorry I wasn't able to meet up with you guys on Saturday. I did have my phone on the boat but it was in the glove compartment and I didn't notice you had called until I had the boat on the trailer. I spent most of my day below Prescott on the Mississippi withour a whole lot of success. I did manage a nice fat sauger (still swimming) and about a 5 pound sheepshead (also still swimming). Other than smashing my finger in the tiller as I was lowering it the day could not have been better.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
