06/24/01 More of the same report, good bite though slowed some but the 19 inchers are not an uncommon fish, on a wide range of presentations from Lindy rigs to cranks. Live bait slowly trolled are catching more sheepies but I saw a Crestliner tag a 3 pounder mixed in with the sheeps so, weeding out is good…Best depths have been 15-24 feet near sand points and at the community holes (river narrows). Water is up and after the rise fish are too. Cats are slow talked to two cat guru’s (Martin and Sandberg) and nada…Sonar marks are very prevalent, the rivers got 40 or so fish species so sorry but not all marks are walleye though (LOL). Smallmouth have been a bit less cautious with the darker water, small vibrating lures are best. Keep catchin’ T.

Who are Martin and Sandberg? I love to catfish, never been successful on the St. Croix. Give me info, so I can get a hold of them.

I know that the river was pretty high last two weeks ago. Fished under the I-94 bridge and lagoon, no fish. All sheeps.

I have just purchased a good set of rod and reed just for the cats, help me out.

mikey,

ask and you shall recieve is the saying. but the part they left out is the word -please. this give me stuff rubs me wrong- nuff said.and as far as martin and sandberg, they aren't the type that answers questions - to them why would they like to spill life long secrets to some unknown person?

What cats are you looking for channels or flats - boat or no boat.

Keep catchin'

I have my 6 year old son up here from TN and would love to know where I can catch some cat fish along the shores of the St.Croix, what type of bait to use, and a approximate time of day. I do not need a pretty sight just with in walking distance from where I park.
Cat fish is all he talks about, want to show him TN is not the only place with nice sized cats.
Also does anybody know if the river has dropped there along Prescott enough to walk out on the peir they have there. Thanks in advance for all tips comments and suggestions would be more than appreciated.
Areas I am interested in are just past Stillwater all the way to Prescott.

I am easily get sea sick, so I'll be fishing from shore. I love chasing after the flat head, but nice blue or channel will do too. I was down by the river today and it's going down quick. It is the right time for cats?

Thanks,
Mikey

Here are some Shore catfish (channel)spots that have produced in the past are:

Hudson off the levee (go to the Hudson WI sign and walk all the way down to the end .33 mile there a nice hole made by the levee)

under I94 bridge (Minnesota side) drive as though you we're going to lakeland beach...

Stillwater levee south of the lift bridge...

I like stinkbait, or cutbait (strips of fresh sucker or drum ) fish the bottom on a slip weight set up...

Hope this helps report in on progress, don't put up with dog days go cattin'

Keep Cacthin'

I recently got into the catfishing game. I am especially interested in flatheads. I would like to try fishing for them from shore in the Stillwater/Hudson area. I have heard the Stillwater bridge was a decent area to try is this true? Or if you have any other spots which might be worth I try I would appreciate the tips. Thank you in advance for any info you can give me.

Tried under I94 MN side this weekend using stink bait. Produced 4 or 5 channels the biggest being maybe 4lbs. Not to friendly on parking had to park in a park in ride spot maybe at the most .5 miles away. There is a nice path that takes you down under the bridge. In the future I would recomend if you want some place to sit bring a folding chair or some thing. Also 10pm is the latest you can stay there. Where do you park to fish at the levee on the Hudson side?

      Was up last week on Kab and it seemed that your bait depended on where you were fishing. Some areas leeches did good, but others minnows were the go to. We lindy rigged the entire trip and on days when wind was gusty we did pretty good shallower with minnows in 13 to 20 ft....then some areas we were doing better with leeches 16 to 32 ft. No wind was like the dead sea.
    • Mike89
      catch and eat the crawfish too!!!
    • Uncle Boney
      I can second A Warrior.  Jumbo leeches for Walleye.  Northern were more interested in minnows and crawlers.

      A Carp Anglers Group Fishing social will be on June 23rd in Coon Rapids. If you enter the park from the Coon Rapids side (Egret Blvd), take a left from the parking lot and drive towards the picnic shelters. Take a right at the first stop sign and park in the lot. We will be fishing in the stretch or river behind the picnic shelter/playground. Start time can be before 7am and you can fish into the evening if you want. There will be medals for the 3 largest fish captured.

      Thanks for lots of good info guys.  Sounds like if I do things right I can have fish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I'll try fishing that reef for some evening walleye. Bobber fish for some sunnies in the weeds.  @delcecchi, I catch enough Walleye in the summer that I really don't want to ask. I won't shy away from a bite. I'll check that little bay for crappies.  @vermilionfox, Wow that is a lot of location data. My PROP thanks you for the rock info!  Merry Go Round? I have another question regarding the Rusty Crawfish... are they a problem on the west side of the lake too? Bloody mini lobsters. I remember spending lots of time using orange for bass and walleye since they were a major food source. Been years since I've done that.  Gone Out Fishin

      I don't think you will be able to run it on that generator. I have a yamaha 2000 and I have not tried it yet but from everything I have read you need 2800 watts to start the AC. All the 2018 ice castle fish houses are coleman mach 3 plus AC I think. 
    • BigVwalters
      The fishing was pretty decent over the weekend.  Walleyes were biting on rigs with leeches or crawlers. Caught 12 between Friday and Saturday with with 4 nice slotters.   Biggest being a 24".   
    • Borch
      Star Island in Cass Lake has remote, boat in primitive camping as well.

      Just returned from a successful trip on Kab.  Minnows did catch fish, but leeches were the ticket

      Angling regulations on Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River in northern Minnesota would change under a proposal being considered by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to reduce the number of walleye and sauger allowed to be kept in the winter on the lake, and on the river allowing only catch-and-release fishing for those fish in the spring.  “We recently went through a public process of updating the Lake of the Woods Fisheries Management Plan and identified several potential areas of concern with regard to current levels of harvest,” said Phil Talmage, Baudette fisheries supervisor. “That’s why we’re discussing these potential changes.” The proposed changes would reduce the aggregate limit of walleye and sauger in the winter to align with the summer regulations on Lake of the Woods, and make spring angling on the Rainy River catch-and-release for walleye and sauger. The changes would go into effect starting March 1, 2019. Anglers will see yellow signs at public water accesses around Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River later this month notifying the public of the proposal. Future news releases will provide the details of a formal public comment period during the fall, and will include ways to provide comment to the DNR on the proposal. For more information on Lake of the Woods management go to mndnr.gov/lakeofthewoods. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
