St. Croix Muskies

Recommended Posts

kell0916

I have been fishing muskies around the cities for several years, but would like to get out on the river this fall. I know the Croix has lots of muskies, anyone have advice where to start from.....not exact spots but maybe boat landings or general areas, also structure to look for? Anything helps, Thanks!

I'd also like to get a couple pointers about the Croix for Muskies/ river fishing muskies in general...

I don't fish for muskies, but I see people doing it. I go out of the Bluffs park landing and people are basically fishing for them where you would expect- places where the current breaks and longer, shallower areas. Go and buy a depth map of the river(you can get them at bait stores or Gander Mountain) where you will go out of and study it a little bit. As soon as you get on the river it will become apparent areas you should target. Good luck!

My brother in law landed a 49 1/2 incher last night in about 6 feet of water.

All of you guys that fish muskies on the croix or want to come check out our Fishing tournament Sept. 10th. We have a Muskie division with a great chance to fish Muskies in the prime of the season. check out www . fishinforparkinsons . com for more info. This is strictly limited to 20 boats and is sure to be a good time to support a great cause!

Finally starting to get out again with the water temps down. It's been a tough year. Basically, find eddies...areas with less current...but not too little current so that the water gets stagnant. Weeds are a plus.

Come September, it is typically a topwater/bucktail bite.

Rusch,

what stretch of the river do you target? South or North of I94? The only landing I am familiar with is the Bluffs landing near Afton, do you have other suggestions where to launch from?

Probably not the answer you're looking for, but there are fish from north of Stillwater to Prescott. Once you learn what to target, you'll be able to pick those types of spots up on a map and on the water, and then you can target any part of the river you want.

I fish south of 94 more than north and launch in Hudson. Two community spots would be the Afton area and the Kinni.

      I do a bit of fishing from the coon rapids dam on down to 694 and I usually bring 2 rods because I lose at least one lure to the rocks. Bear that in mind and also realize that there are nice smallies, eyes and cats in that stretch of river. I also had over 3 feet of pike eat my stink bait I had out for channel cats. If I didn't have a circle hook on it would have been a nice pic to share. Good luck and hope to hear of some good luck.

      It would take a lot of code to make multiple windows tiling the screen work, would be my guess, and would create few additional sales so isn't worth the expenses.    Just pick up an inexpensive 5 to 7 inch unit and use it for the map.

      You look like the Phantom Fisherman - except the toes.  Or maybe the River Detective  🕵️‍♂️ Gotta love those good runs in short times!

      Awesome Eyeguy! That is a good run of smallies there. I like your spot, that was my favorite fishing stretch for them when I lived in St cloud. Mississippi is such a great smallie fishery. Im blessed to live right next to it too. Now lets get the current to go down some!

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Sounds like a heck of an evening! Alot of fun also.
    • eyeguy 54
      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL
