Shorefishing the rivers

Recommended Posts

I have been fishing the Mississippi a lot recently, just throwing a worm on and see what bites. Then later in the evening casting rapalas for eyes or smallies with a little bit of success. I was just wondering if there were a lot of the same types of places to fish the St. Croix, since I live in Woodbury and it would be closer for me. Thanks in advance.

I used to go down by Prescott by the beach, they have changed the area since the last time I was there, but I think it is still open to fishing.

Thanks. I think I might just spend a day cruising the shores looking for some spots. I have a friend that fishes the Wisconsin side, but I haven't been able to contact him.

Yup...did that too. up by the old railroad bridge in North

Hudson and also where the Saint Mary's river comes into the St. Croix....good parking at both spots. sometimes fish too.

I went out yesterday to check out spots in Afton state park and it looked like there were a lot of OK spots to fish, but about a 3/4 mile hike just to get to the river from the parking lot. Maybe I'll drive down to Prescott or up to North Hudson and give them a shot. Thanks for the advice.

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
