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

      Don't beat yourself up over it at all. I moved several times and you still caught more than I did. Looking forward to this weekend's weather, will not even need a shelter to check depths and move around..... Fingers crossed, I haven't found fish all year. Sure am amazed at the wheelhouses though, absolutely mind numbing the #'s...

      Fished Cannon lake this evening. I bounced around from 12-5ft of water and started to mark fish in 8ft so I set up there until dark. I saw a bunch of fish come in for a look but not one nibble. Tried every color and style spoon and jig I had but nothing.

      Best thing you can do if you won't be around is to put the house on fresh ice, don't drill any holes, and put it on blocks.  When people get into trouble is if it gets windy and they have open holes under the house, that rain starts blowing around on top of the ice, and starts swirling down into the holes under the house....that swirling water EATS ice, and can sink a house pretty quick.     As as far as the ice on the lakes, if you have 14-15 inches of good ice like most places around, you'll have no worries if you do what is posted above.
