Versatile options

2 posts in this topic

The river is in the early summer stage right now. The water temperatures are warm and the water levels are low. This is also evident because they are hitting on crankbaits and livebait about half and half, over the last few years, I have grown to believe they want bait much more early in the season than anything else. We caught 18 legals on yesterday (5/19), including some saugers and on was 20 inches, which is a nice fish on the Croix north of Prescott. Including versatile options for presenting the baits, are a wide range of depths are from 8 to 28 feet. Personally I like the shallow stuff best.

Keep Catchin'

Hit the river again this morning and found the eyes to be on the shorter end and light bitters, caught a mix bag of drum and stripers and smallies, did manage to bring home 4 nice ones and a short sauger (floater) all fish came on crawlers 12-20 feet, had alot of short bites but I noticed when I feed them line and waited, usually hooked up. great morning to be on the water! NICE MEETING YOU TOM! cool.gif MY MARKER WAS IN THE RIGHT SPOT, HUH!! wink.gifwink.gif

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
