Recommended Posts

Just found out over the phone that my son was accepted into St. Croix State Park for the youth hunt, can't wait. Anyone else found out yet. Supposedly the results of the lottery are on the website but couldn't find it.

I recieved confirmation in the mail yesterday from the DNR. It's my daughter's first year hunting, so I am really pumped that she was able to get drawn. Probably more exited than she is.

What do most of you do when hunting with your youth son or daughter? Do you use a 2-man deer stand or seperate stands, the reason I ask is this is my 1st youth hunt with my son and I have a 2 man deer stand but being you can't have ATV's in the state park it is going to be hard to have to lug that big thing around any distance.

Most of the parks have a nice trail system,so if you have a deer cart you might be able to cart it out.I've hunted with my daughter on high ground with a good view with success and I've also put 2 portable stands close together.

You may want to try a pop up ground blind. They are great for kids as they can move about a bit more without spooking game. You can also bring food, drinks and other things to keep them entertained during the slow times.

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it. 
    • leech~~
      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.
