I did not have good luck by Prescott last weekend nor did any of the people I talked to. I fished Friday evening and most of the day Sunday and caught nothing. I fished mostly along the break that parallels Bay Point Park in 20 to 40' of water. I live in Hastings so this is the most convenient place for me to get on the Croix. I will be trying it again, probably one day this weekend and the other day I plan to drive up to Bayport.

MidCoast or others,

I have not fished the river before but was hoping to this weekend, I have not had luck finding details on depth and structure. Is there some structure that you would suggest or general information reguarding depth and relative postion to the bottom that you are comfortable sharing. I am also interested in Crappies, is the Prescott area good for this?

Have been seeing more and more cars/shacks on the ice in Prescott in the last week around 5:30 PM. Anyone have any recent reports from this area.

I was down there on Wednesday evening and caught nothing. I did have 2 fish on but lost them before I got a look so I don't know what they were. Both were definately on the small side but at least I had a tug on my line. I marked a few other fish and had a few follow my bait up a few feet from the bottom. The other people I talked to said it was really slow. I'm going down there after work to fish for the evening so maybe I will be able to give a real fishing report later.

      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.
