Need some help for next week

I have a chance to get a day off next week [a rare occurance the past 40 days] and want to hit the Croix for a day of R&R and catch a few fish. Maybe find some eyes or whities but will take whatever bites to enjoy the day on the water with my son.

Do very well each year in the spring north of the swing bridge but have never fished the open water Croix this time of year.

Not asking for any secrets but would appreciate any tips anyone could spare.

North or South of Hudson?

Live bait - minnows or crawlers?

All comments and suggestions would be appreciated.


Preferred depth you would suggest to start at?

crappies are on the chew right now. little crappie tubes with minnows working nicely. deep drops around 15 to 20. shallower with structure. good luck.

Got out today with my son. Great day to be fishing (not catching) on that flat water [sunburned faces]. Had a six pointer crossing the river next to us coming from MN to WI (must be a packer fan). Amazing how fast they can swim. Great sight for us.

Gulls were gorging themselves on shad all day . Fish were not around.Did boat some nice whities and jumbo perch for supper. No eyes or saugers.

Interesting that all their stomachs were empty.

Only thing that worked for us was spoons on a 3 way...go figure.
