St. Croix White Bass

Recommended Posts

imgoing2sleep

I am going to be fishing the Croix Tuesday and would like to target some white bass. Does anyone know if they are still active up in Hudson? I remember seeing some posts a couple weeks ago about that and would like to give that a try. Any ideas on how deep they are and what presentations to try?

Look for the gulls and also with your sonar, look for the bait clouds and surface activity. If they are feeding they will be pushing the shad to the surface and will whack most anything. I like #5 shadraps in firetiger or shad patterns, small rattle raps in shad, green/gold/ firetiger aren't bad either or if you want to have some fun try working a popper on the surface.

I've had a lot of sucess with a white feather jig with pink/orange head as well as white/charteous spinners.

How late into the season will the silvers be schooling up? My calender isn't looking too good, but I'd like to hit the croix (beanies landing area) one last time sometime this month, just want to know if the white bass will still be active.

I usually fish by that old railroad track right in Hudson city... i do well with the white bass.... That spot, i would say, is the best shore fishing spot .. Try it..

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      still frozen in?

      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 !!
