Went out yesterday with my son. Fished fron 8:30 til 1:00. Caught about 15 crappies, 6 were decent size and a 32" sturgeon. Marked a lot of fish, most were just loookers.

Anyone fish near the open water by the Allan S. King plant? There seems to be a lot of interest in this area.

I think they are targeting sauger near the open water, better hurry, the season is only 3 more days.

I've caught 4 of them in the last 3 or 4 weeks and heard of a bunch of other people getting them.

Sturgeon are commonly caught on the river. In the summer, I've seen folks pull one sturgeon after another out of the hole between Hiline pt. and the King plant outlet. From what I've heard, that is what most of the folks around the outlet are catching through the ice.

Thats weird. So if you have a MN license you can fish till March 2nd but with a WI license can only fish till March 1st? Thats what it looks like to me.

Hey UW and Blue I don't think either of you have to worry about when the season is over. I haven't seen either of you catch a walleye or sauger in a LONGGGGGGGG time. Just giving you guys a hard time. I sent you guys an email, I think I will hit the Croix Friday afternoon to try and fine tune things for LOW!!!!! Hey blue what happened to your other picture? Ruby is way cuter than any old fish on a beer label.

I had the debate last year about witch set of rules do you fallow if you fish boarder waters. I called and talked to CO's from both sides and the ruling I am told is If your a Wis. resident is depends on witch side of the river you put in on for what set of rules you are going by. For Minn. it does not matter where you put in a MN CO will consider you a Minn. Resident and hold you to Minn. rules. I had to call and ask because Wis. rules let you use more up to three baits total so you could have two on one and one on another. It took about ten phone calls to find the information.

So, if you are from Minnesota, or have a Minnesota license, you can fish walleye through this weekend?

If you are from Wisconsin, or only have a Wisconsin license, today is the last day for walleye? But I can use three lines?

You obey the regs of the state your license is for, but as for the season on the Croix, it goes both ways. A MN license holder can fish eyes on the Croix until the season ends, just as a WI license holder can. A MN license only allows you 2 lines, so you can only use 2, but a WI license allows for 3. A WI license has its plus' on the Croix. If the Croix has a daily limit that is more generous than the MN state limit and you have a MN license, you must obey the MN limit. Hope that isn't too confusing.

      for some reason my replies got deleted? but yes, you guys are right, the startup on the ac unit is double the running watts; also coleman mach got back to me about the thermostats, he said they're all compatible to run off of thermstats, you would need to install a control box in he unit so it can communicate with the thermostat

      Cliff thanks for the updates.  Do you think the hatch will be done by next weekend? 
    • dnovak
      I have read this also.  I picked up 2 of the Honda 2200's and the parallel kit when we bought ours this spring.  Haven't had the chance to use it yet 🤔

      Was up last week on Kab and it seemed that your bait depended on where you were fishing. Some areas leeches did good, but others minnows were the go to. We lindy rigged the entire trip and on days when wind was gusty we did pretty good shallower with minnows in 13 to 20 ft....then some areas we were doing better with leeches 16 to 32 ft. No wind was like the dead sea.
    • Mike89
      catch and eat the crawfish too!!!
    • Uncle Boney
      I can second A Warrior.  Jumbo leeches for Walleye.  Northern were more interested in minnows and crawlers.

      A Carp Anglers Group Fishing social will be on June 23rd in Coon Rapids. If you enter the park from the Coon Rapids side (Egret Blvd), take a left from the parking lot and drive towards the picnic shelters. Take a right at the first stop sign and park in the lot. We will be fishing in the stretch or river behind the picnic shelter/playground. Start time can be before 7am and you can fish into the evening if you want. There will be medals for the 3 largest fish captured.

      Thanks for lots of good info guys.  Sounds like if I do things right I can have fish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I'll try fishing that reef for some evening walleye. Bobber fish for some sunnies in the weeds.  @delcecchi, I catch enough Walleye in the summer that I really don't want to ask. I won't shy away from a bite. I'll check that little bay for crappies.  @vermilionfox, Wow that is a lot of location data. My PROP thanks you for the rock info!  Merry Go Round? I have another question regarding the Rusty Crawfish... are they a problem on the west side of the lake too? Bloody mini lobsters. I remember spending lots of time using orange for bass and walleye since they were a major food source. Been years since I've done that.  Gone Out Fishin

      I don't think you will be able to run it on that generator. I have a yamaha 2000 and I have not tried it yet but from everything I have read you need 2800 watts to start the AC. All the 2018 ice castle fish houses are coleman mach 3 plus AC I think. 
    • BigVwalters
      The fishing was pretty decent over the weekend.  Walleyes were biting on rigs with leeches or crawlers. Caught 12 between Friday and Saturday with with 4 nice slotters.   Biggest being a 24".
