Bayport Report

The crappie and sauger bite was hot and heavy on 12/26.Numerous happy anglers were seen with half pails of crappies.One was even measured in at 15 1/2 inches.The majority of those were taken in 22 to 26 feet of water around "The rock pile". Saugers were found hanging in 30 to 35 feet of water, mostly to the north of the small city that sets up there daily.One sauger measured in at 19 inches,that was an awesome sight. Morning bite seemed the best,with some saying that they were catching crappies before the sun even came up.

I've fished the St Croix by N Hudson, but am not familiar with the rock pile. Is that in the area close to the Minn side by the power plant? Also where do you get on the ice? Thanks for your help.

You can walk out onto the ice from the park in Bayport.If you're coming from the south,turn right just before the little gas stationas you're coming into Bayport.Follow that straight forward over the railroad tracks to the parking area.It's only about a 200 yard walk out on fairly nice paths.
Hope this helps you on your next trip.

As always, please be careful, ice is never safe and river ice that much more so. Use all due caution.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.

      Update.  Minnesota American Legion and other volunteers succeeded Thursday, May 17, 2018, in cutting the giant North Long Lake bog into three sections. The bog came to rest on the beach of an American Legion camp. The plan is to move the middle section to open up the beach, then relocate the other two back to the bog’s original position on the lake north of Brainerd, Minn. (Forum News Service)

      This Freak?   Jam Ferg poses with his fish after TWRA officials certified its weight.

      The Minnesota record is almost that big, it's over 5lbs and it was caught in the Vermillion river in southern Minnesota back in the late 50's I believe.   "Ace"
