Good luck to all.

Loon18......Soon shanty town will be shanty city and strech the width of the Croix the way its going.There are still alot of areas that are untapped out there though.2 of my spots that Ive had to myself for 7 or 8 years have folks on them now.I just find new grounds though.Just gotta stay one step ahead of the crowds,if you can.

Tried a few new spots yesterday, not a bite. Went to a spot that always produces away from the crowd and managed 2 keeper craps and a 5-inch sauger. All the action took place around sunset. Fishing out there is tough right now, in my opinion.

I was out there sunday, never been one to go by the towns, but was VERY tough to even get a bite. Me and the wife were basicly all by ourselves but within 15 minutes we had a few guys around us which I have no problem with. Saw A LOT of guys moving there permi shacks up north which was a shocker to me. Its SO busy up there I dont think you can even move.

Quick question, is the guy with the plywood shack and tree a member? Hes been out there [PoorWordUsage] neer every day!

Sunrise and sunset have always been the best times on the croix for me. And the bite seems real quick.

Yeah, a lot of people are starting to venture north. There are a few spots up by the high lines that you can get into still. All I have caught up there though this year were a bunch of small crappies. Nothing worth keeping.

      Was nice to hear that the Croix upstream of Stillwater was pretty much normal level, so I fished out of Osceola yesterday. Was an absolute beautiful day to be out! Didn’t get as hot as expected, nice and cloudy, and a nice wind blowing upstream. For the first time in history, I didn’t cast a twister tail on the river. For some reason I was deadset on jointed rapalas and clacking raps. Only caught 1 smallie, 1 walleye, and 1 pike. Lost about 5 fish, 1 of which I suspect was a turtle. Overall experience resulted in one of my better outings of the season!

      Always have had struggles in July.  Lots of forage to keep them fish full this time of year.

      You can expect excellant walleye fishing with little competition. Don't be afraid to take a trip over to Elephant lake to chase some slab crappies as well. The feed bag should be on.

      Does anyone know of any good shore fishing spots on the Minnesota River in Carver. Not Carver County, but the city of Carver. The river is pretty high right now, so I don't know if that affects anything. I know this one little ledge you can go to once you are inside the campground, and I have seen evidence of people fishing these, given some got a lure stuck to a log in the water with line still attached. And, what kind of lures should I be using. I wanna go for anything, except maybe catfish or muskies, because I don't have the gear for those. I did see a post the other day about shore fishing for White Bass on the Minnesota in Mankato, so would something like that be good for me? I guess my one question would be, let's say I am trying to jig with a soft plastic, how do I "avoid" the current? Thanks for any tips anyone can give me! If not in Carver, than in the nearby area, like Chaska, Jordan, etc.
