Has anyone ever fished up by Stillwater? What is the ice like up there?

Actually the ice on the Wisconsin side of the Croix north of the Highline point is very good this year.I saw a couple of trucks parked on the south side of the Stillwater bridge last week,but I dont recomend you go that far.The current coming under the bridge can thin things out in a hurry.I myself havent been up past the highline point this year,but some folks are fishing right across from sunnyside.There are a few points to check out after you get past the highlines,they may or may not hold the species you are seeking.The Minnesota side can be very sketchy as far as Ice thickness,the river current seems to favor that side so please use caution.Whenever I go to previous unexplored parts of the river during winter its best to drill as you go,so you dont end up becoming river structure.2cnts

Croixeyes has that right the ice can be unexpected. Last Thursday drilled a few holes and found an averge of around 20" then I drilled close to my truck and I was sitting on 10" to 12" freaked me out even more when the ice was doing its thing making those loud preasure cracking noises. With this warm weather keep an open because some spots can weaken in a hurry.

      Yeah I'm planning and scouting starting next week.  Any help is appreciated.   Also a reminder....   You will need a new fishing license as of 3/1/19.  The warden often comes by to say "hi"  and chat for a bit at our gathering.   I would hate to have someone forget.   Especially me. 😉

      I got stuck on West Rush Wednesday.  Thanks to Nick?  P  from Rush City for helping me get out.  I couldn't budge.  Mike from Mike's towing was going to come out and rescue me but Nick saved me a bundle!  Thanks, Mike for being willing to come out on the ice.    Just wondering how travel is on Rush and Pokegama this weekend.  I will be hesitant go get out until the snow gets packed down on a bit.!!!

      Might want to have him call a realtor but I think there is something open in that strip mall behind McDonald's. A friend retired and closed his jewelry store and that spot might work good. I think it's called Pokegama  Plaza. Next to Edward Jones and Sears.

      Hey PRO V, you wouldn't happen to know of any office spaces for rent in rapids would you? My co worker is maybe thinking of moving our office up there if he can find a reasonable price and enough room for his cabinets.

      I am going to put a get together on Blue Lake in March!! I am thinking the second weekend at the time. My question is would Saturday or Sunday be best for most of you? This will be out of the north access as I have work on finding a good spot with active fish yet. Please let me know and if you are interested in helping find a spot with active fish. Thanks
