thistlekicker ------ Big Fish Trap Rapids?

Recommended Posts

thistlekicker,

Last year you were talking about "running" Big Fish Trap Rapids. Was wondering if you did? If so, how did that go? Did you fish that area much? Seems as though it would be great smallie water. What other areas above or below Danbury have you been on? Thanks for any info.

C.P.R.

I didn't do that stretch through Big Fishtrap. We ended up paddling the lower Namekagon from County K down to Riverside on the St Croix. Which is a nice mellow trip except for a couple decent rapids between the confluence of the Namekagon & St Croix. Didn't fish very hard but got a few smallmouth, nothing very big. Saw lots of large "rough" fish (suckers/redhorse, sturgeon, catfish) and a few big muskies just sitting motionless on the bottom.

Last weekend we paddled the St Croix from Thayer's to HW70. Water levels were very low and it was kind of a scapey trip.

I think the upper St Croix above the confluence with the Namekagon is considered a springtime run because it gets too low in the summer.

hope that helps - the Namekagon/St Croix is a great paddling resource and I'll definitely be back, hopefully when water levels are a bit higher.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
