Awesome day on the St. Croix...

Took a client (a novice fisherman who's never caught a walleye in his whole life) from work out on the river. Started out about 6AM by Hudson I-94 bridge. Doing a little verticle jigging with crawlers and leeches. Put the guy on fish right away. By 10AM we both limited out on 'eyes with a few decent saugers. Biggest 'eye was a 22" (released) had a few 19" too. Spent the rest of the day chasing silver bass and smallies. Got a few decent smallies on topwater and suspending stick baits. Charteuse seems to be the ticket today. All in all a great day on the water.

Jloomis, Yep they are. I was down there just the other night and where there was baitfish and gulls there was usually some feisty silvers right behind.

Badbeat,

How deep of water do you fish this time of year and do you just look for humps on your sonar? I fish near the prescott bridge. Any help would be appreciated!

The silvers are chasing baitfish still and like turn said look for the gulls and you won't find whitebass too far behind.

I was fishing 10-20 feet of water. The baitfish were fairly shallow in the water column though. About the top five feet of the water. Hope that helps./

Was out yesterday morning 5am. Trolled along the shore for some crappies. Found a nice school caught a few doz. slabs. Kept a few for lunch. Then hit a school of silvers and fought with them for the next few hours. Caught a nice 24" walleye on a spinner while fishing for silver. Got a few decent size saugers too for the frying pan. Not bad day to be out at all with the crisp fall air and the sunshine.

      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?

      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.
