June 12th report

Hit the water with a friend at about 5:00, fished smallies for a couple hours with moderate success, once the wind died a bit along with the boat traffic, we decided to try for some eye's. About 7:00 we pulled up to the sand break, we managed 6 all saugers with once real nice 21" sauger, the rest between 14" and 17". Leeches and crawlers from 13' to 25' of water slowly dragged down river lindy style. Turned out to be a beautiful evening, another quality night on the Croix!

Stratosman, are you going to be hitting the river this weekend? I'll be out early saturday morning, shooting for being on the water by 3:30 on off by 8. The biggest sauger I ever caught was 23" caught on the miss, the croix on the other hand is 20 1/2, which of course I tossed back, eyes on the other hand, the one in that photo is my second largest caught on the croix and the 5th largest I've ever caught, Catch and release is really important, tomorrows trophies depend on it! Can't wait to get back on the river!! cool.gif

I know I'll be down there this weekend. I Did go back out last Sun. nite but it wasn't my nite. I only got sheephead! My g/f caught a nice crappie and her friend caught a sauger. And speaking of hawg saugs, I caught a 25.5"er last spring down on lake Pepin. It was a few split-shot down the throat away from breaking the state record, which is 6lbs,4oz. or something. But I did the sportman like thing and photoed her, and sent it back in.

Anyways I'll be out Sat. morning, I launch outta st.Croix Bluffs so the earliest I can get out is 6am. Walli, Stratos, where do you guys head out from?

As a non-employed model of walli1's, I'd be happy to say that he launches out of Hubs across the river from Hastings. The folks that run that place are very nice, too! grin.gif

I don't know yet....maybe Sat. real early like yourself. I usually hit weekday evenings mostly though. One of these weekends I will hit it in the early a.m. by golly, then I will try to say hola to ya!

I launch out of Plans in cowtown Hastings in the early hours or the Bluffs for the weekday evenings.

If I don't make it this weekend good luck and I will be checking back for reports. Otherwise Tuesday looks like the next day for me. cool.gif

Nope, can't go out tomorrow. Gotta do a family day because on Sunday, my brother is setting up a guide trip for us on P4. That'll be fun.

I did try a couple of those spots the other evening. Didn't catch any eyes but my son did manage a nice 6-7 pound channel cat on a shad rap by where you caught your piggy.... wink.gif My brother and I only managed some small silver walleyes and a rock bass. Wasn't marking any fish at all.... frown.gif

      Del, I have never bothered to skin or scale them as I do not eat the skin or fins. Cliff

      Hope you at least get some rain up there this spring Kelly.  We were pretty dry until the past two months.

      It says 3 amp fuse in the manual. I'm going to run it to the motor battery. I'll post how it works. Thanks skunked again!

      I'm curious about the walleye wings... do you skin or scale them?   Or is it not a problem?

      My yard!! Lol packing things away today. Getting ready for summer Be a great day to get out though.
    • Cret Jigs
      where we all fishing today?   Looking to walkout or use 4 wheeler if landing permits?

      We miss the leadership of Ricky Rubio ... Teague is a very bad defender and does not see the floor.  Rubio had his best shooting percentage season ever and career points scored of his career.  Wish we could re-do that trade.   Don't get me going .... among players that play the most minutes ... we are now the 7th oldest team in NBA???   2 year window to win ... we should have kept our talent and let the cake bake!

      We still have 24" of ice on the bay & we're only 6-8 miles from where they set the nets. Doubt they'll be starting anytime soon over there.
