Shore fishing the St. Croix

5 posts in this topic

I fishi the St. Croix from shore right in Stillwater by the drawbridge. What sort of a setup and where should I fish if I am looking to get into walleyes this time of the year.

Well, if I were you, I'd try slip bobbering just above the bottom with a Red hook & a Leech.

I'm sure you'll get tons of other good ideas from fellow FM'ers too.

Give the slip bobber, Red hook & Leech, cast out in a big matrix, cover a good sized area and let us know how ya do...

Good luck!

You can also try across the river under the draw bridge. With floating jighead and minnow or leech.

I will give it a whirl. I usually pull a lindy rig with a crawler right off of the pavilion, I haven't caught anything but sheepshead and white bass. One sheepshead hit 24". Anyway I will let you know how I do.

Try focusing on the area just upstream from the pavilion where it curves into the river. That's where the Mulberry Point spring outlet was. It used to boil up until the Corps redid the river front. I haven't been there with the boat thermometer to see if it's still cooler temp lately. Anyway it still gets hit hard from boat fisherman.

Also try the Bayport area there is a park with plenty of shoreline access near Anderson Point.

Good Luck,

Ferny

        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.

        Was wondering. Why eyeguy? Never seen or saw you holding an iced Walleye? May be a change is in order. panguy54!    Nice fish!
