fishing the St Croix

Recommended Posts

Guest

I'm new to Minnesota and I would like to do some fishing here. I live in Minneapolis, so I was thinking about fishing the St. Croix river for Walleye, bass, and panfish. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. I also would like advice on where boat ramps are on the St. Croix.

I recommend giving Turk a call and spending
at least a half day on the water with him so you can learn a few spots etc. He knows the Croix real well!!! Jim W

Hire Turk. He's your only hope.
May the Force be with you!!
Seriously, I've fished with him 3 times and had a blast. Ate some yummy walldads and saugers. The education on the river is worth the price of admission.

sonjamike. Turk seems real busy these days. The fish must be biting. smile.gif I just got started fishing the St Croix myself. Got some good advice from Turk. First you should get yourself a good map of the river. I got a hot spots map for the lower St Croix and there is one avalible for the upper also. They show the boat ramps.I used the one at StCroix regional park south of Afton. It's a nice ramp,but like all the ramps on the Croix very busy on the weekends. I had good luck fishing by the mouth of the Kinni, the channel narrows there and alot of stucture. Whatever your fishing for the StCroix has it.I've caught Walleye, Sauger, Northern, Smallmouth, Crappie and Catfish and of course sheephead and carp. I mainly fish for eyes and sauger with a jig and minnow or leech. Slow drifts over different depths and structure to find them works good for me. There's also a good bite on cranks, trolling or casting and that's something I'm looking to do more of this summer and fall. I'm really looking forward to the fall fishing when the pleasure boats park it for the winter. Give it a try you won't be sorry and keep an eye on this site Turk always comes thru with good reports on the bite, what depth and what their hitting on. Good Luck and
Good Fishing.

      Yeah, Chris. I was hoping to get some color. Unfortunately, bright pink was not the color I had in mind.

      Went to the chain on the boat did not get to far. No cats had a good time felt good to hear the Yamaha purr. It's sure moving the water that is.

      Exactly, a 5fish limit would do wonders.

      Thanks to all for sharing.  I also hadn't heard of this before. Regarding the cheeks, what size does the walleye need to be to make them worthwhile?  I never keep any walleyes over 20".

      There were trucks out on Isle Bay yesterday, and ALLOT of snow remains on the main lake. I think significant open water for the opener is a long shot at best.

      I haven't been here in ages. But I have fished Moonshine, Caribou, Trout, Little Trout, Wabana, Bee Cee (when it held trout), Lucky, Kremer and Nickel. So this thread caught my eye.

      I live on the north side of Cass on the Pughole. We had 30 inches of ice out in front of my dock yesterday. Pughole is the flowage between Kitchie and Cass. I'm 200 yards off Cass and the current is pretty strong there. Top few inches was pretty mushy. Nothing happening as far as fish yet. But they are coming. Jumbos move in soon. Also seen a truck out off of Star Island on Monday evening. I imagine they have more ice out on the main lake than I have. I'm for sure going to be out ice fishing through next week at my place. Ice hasn't even begun to pull from shore at my place.
