Legally?

Now you're stuck with the Canadian border waters.

In the fall, there is a short season on the St. Croix from the Taylors Falls Dam to Prescott.

If your talking about shovelnose sturgeon, then I believe the season is continuous, but you can only keep them below the red wing dam.

I am not familiar with the areas. Can you give me directions?

From p16 of the 2007 regs, shovelnose and lake sturgeon have no open season on inland lakes.

I mentioned above open seasons for lake sturgeon.

From p54 of the 2007 regs, there is a continuous open season for shovelnose sturgeon on the Mississippi River only downstream from the Red Wing Dam. The limit is 10 with no minimum size limit.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4

      There was 20 at the site.  I'm not worried about the main sheet of ice, just the access and near shore/shallow areas.   Plenty of ice everywhere else I drilled.

      My kids went out Sat, Sun.  Went from Vermilion to Myrtle lake, said the trails were bumpy, but plenty of snow.  Lake has snow, but pretty slushy.
