Pressure relief in 5 days

3 posts in this topic

The old river has had its share of fishing pressure the last 2 weeks and as of this Saturday there may be a little more room to roam.With the Mn opener kicking off the Croix gets a little rest and that makes it a little nicer for us rats to spread our rods out and relax.The bite has really picked up in the last week and many nice fish have been caught.I would prefer cloudy weekends over sunny,to hold down the big boat traffic but thats just a dream.Im gonna lay off the fishing for one more week to stock pile up on morel mushrooms so those of you who are still fishing the river,leave a couple for me ..........Good Luck Out There.........

I think I might hit the backwaters to avoid the crowds this saturday...there's a 10 pound northern with my name on it swimming around back there somewhere.

On friday afternoon I fished around afton and couldnt believe how dead the river was I could have counted on one hand the boats I saw in several hours.

      Much different lake from a week ago. Snow on shores and ice in reeds. Water temps were down quite a bit. 42 in main lake 45 in shallow bays. Had a few followers on spinner baits but no hits.

      Went fishing for a couple hours yesterday. Water temp was 48-50. It was a nice day to be out on the water. My arms and neck are a lovely shade of red to prove it. Make sure you're smarter than me and toss a tube of sunscreen in the tackle box before you head out.

      Smoked up 4 for a test and really good!  Quite different than the crappies. Nice and oily and the skin peels right off. Scales are pretty big so a bit of a mess but easy peasy.

      I attended an event Saturday out of Everts. Eye bite was really slow for the 20 boats but a few nice fish were caught. Got into a buncha white bass at the end of the day and it was game on.   Brined some overnight and smoked em up to try them. We thru cranks and swim baits all day.
