6/28/02 Walleyes!

Recommended Posts

Steve-O

Fished with Turk on 6/28. Weather was hot, but the bite was hotter. Several nice walleyes including a personal best of 25" for me. Turk was dialed in that day. Not a single rough fish. all walleyes and sauger. Great day on the 'Croix.

Steveo,

Nice job landing that fish, they always look enormous in the water! I can't take credit for not catching any rough fish, sheepers, etc. they just were not were I was fishing... ha, but an all walleye and sauger day is ok with me.

The water is dropping slowly and I think the good bite should continue despite the hot Hot weather...
Good Luck
Turk

Hey guys,

New to fish'n the St. Croix. I'm thinking of heading out tonight to try down by Stillwater/Hudson area. Are you having any luck with the eyes in this part of the river?! If so, where would a good spot to launch the boat?

Thanks

I always launch out of Lakefront Park in Hudson. There's also Beanie's on the Minny side. I'm a resident so it only costs me 3 bucks. non residents is 6 or 7 I believe.
Stillwater has a public launch north of the city. don't know much about that one.

Did you launch up by the boomsite?

I have only fished the river a few times in the summer, where is the best place to launch? What do the Wisc. areas charge for launching? I paid $7 at Prescott earlier, and don't have anything to compare it too. I'm looking ot launch betwen Afton and N Hudson somewhere. Thanks

Dr. T.,

The best place in my opinion, to launch in terms of price and wait time is the landing at St. Croix Bluffs regional park, which is on the Minnesota side between Kinni and Prescott. I don't launch there as Beanies is closer for me. But if you are from southern metro area it's the place to go. Annual price is 20 dollars or so.

Stillwater Boomsite has a Public DNR free access, but the lines and parking can be long and limited.

Hudson City launch, Prescott city, Beanies, and Bayport's Boat house are all about a wash in terms of price, and are likely chosen because of the nearby fishing areas... i.e. it makes little sense to launch in Hudson if you plan on fishing Prescott area, Naturally.

Hope this helps.

A little more on the Bluffs Regional park just south of Afton.The first tuesday of every month is a free day to use the park and to check it out.If you only want a day pass it is $4.The park has a great boat ramp sheltered from the waves on the river.Check it out someday!

Managed to pick up three eyes and a sauger last night on the Croix. Now that I know where to go I won't have to drive an hour down river to catch them. The fish were from 14-16 inches. Wished I could have stayed later but like I said I had a long ride back to the launch.

      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)

      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"

      You need to go west or perhaps north of Pine island if you don't want to go that far.   "Ace"   "It's just fishing man"

      I spoke to a buddy who was at Sag over the weekend, and my dad who was fishing a lake a bit north of Leech - none of them had much luck on walleye. I'm chalking it up to a walleye blackout across the northern part of the state. I just need an excuse for the rest of the trips I take! We're talking about coming up again in the fall. I definitely would like to come back for a longer trip, there is so much more of the lake to explore

      It usually pays off finding your own fish.   Nice report.
