Xcel Energy Dam/Stillwater Bayport area


Senko

Recommended Posts

Senko, from my understanding the dam is always letting some water through. It holds back water when there is excess rain for future power generation. The dam buffers the flow of the lower river to some extent.

Fishing is sweet. I caught a bunch of crappie, some nice white bass, a few smallies and rock bass, a couple sauger and sheepshead and that one walleye that got away boat side. Morning started slow, was real busy after lunch.

Here the biggest of todays croixpie.

Nice slab Blueroof. I was out saturday and the crappies were still biting. I didn't get any that big, but a few 12 and 13's.

I would like to know what you used to catch the Amber Ale. I think there would be a lot more fisherman out there trying if you let us know. By the way, was there a fish in the picture?

Worms. If you can believe that! Earlier in the day I got a white bass (on a minnow) that had to have been well over 3lbs, didn't realize what a trophy that was. I would have never known if it wasn't for someone posting about the 27" bass out of Tonka. Everyone should take some time to look over the state record fish page, quality reading.

      We couldn’t put a pattern together this week. The few keepers and the one 25” slot fish we got were caught moving slowly up and down reef edges in 15-24 feet. Nothing off the edge and nothing on the tops. Very tough fishing, found bugs and baitfish top to bottom in the water column almost everywhere we went. Should’ve just switched to bass.

      Found a spot this morning and picked up 5. Lost over a dozen as well. 3 of us fishing and their inexperience hurt.  Hope the wife doesn't see this.😁   Found them on a hump about 17 ft. in big bay south end.  If I moved off it by 20 ft nothing. I think the best plan is to troll slowly and if you get 1 stop and jig it. Leeches or crawlers both worked.

      Skeeters are big and nasty at vermilion.  Any bigger I might start a chocolate covered deep fried mosquito for state fair food.

      Maybe his blood is not as tasty as mine? Just got back from a run, the deer flies were thick, I do have hair of a Greek god so they get lost in there 😅

      The mighty Mississippi has finally dropped enough that fishing isn't so much work again😂.  Been getting a good mix of river species this past week...lots and lots of bass though. Have even gotten a few real close to 20in.... Still looking for that first legit beast yet this summer.    Hey Leechy...... If you line up that big boulder and the hospital you pretty much got my area😁😂. 5-6 ft of water, fishies using the big rocks as a break from the current.  Crayfish and minnow colors with Ned rigs
