Sucka sucked it up tonight!

Well, I guess we all have to have these days once in a while, but not all of us post about that's for sure. I don't know why I am reporting this, perhaps it's a sympathy plea. I caught one sheephead in about 5 hours of fishing. I'm not saying I didn't miss a couple here and there, but ouch!

I worked the Hudson bridge and missed a few; I worked the sand bars by the NSP plant and missed a few. I went to one of my best spots north of Stillwater before pulling out the boat and nothing!

I know, nobody feels bad for me, that's ok. By the reports I would have to suggest that you stick to mornings for walleyes and lower St.Croix seems to be having better luck. No excuses here, I really stunk tonight! Sorry that I can't bring good news this time.

Sucka, I feel your pain man. When I look at all the time and money I've spent, energy I have expended,tackle purchased, and knowledge gleaned. I would like to think that I could catch any fish, anytime, anywhere. But alas I have come to the harsh reality that it is still called fishing and not catching! PS Think how good it will feel when it quits hurting.

Sucka,

Hey don't feel bad the bite has been Hot and Cold! I always try to report as such and not just start spouting off when catching big fish! So thanks, we all appreciate it.

This has been an odd year, last haldf of summer, for sure. The phrase "you should have been here yesterday," is fairly common where guys are stratching the head after slamming fish the day before. If you time it right the Croix could be coonsidered dead or Hott!

It really is tempermental just like a lake this year. The only advice that I can muster is work the fastest current you can find in an area, at least try it, it can really pay off, but that's why it's called fishing.

Keep Catchin'

I will agree with Turk it was a goofy summer with the big rains! Hammer them one day and struggle the next two to three days.You really had to key on the low-light periods with the hot summer to be somewhat productive!! The end of Sept into October should get very good. Should be more consistent anyways. The fish know winter is coming and they will have one thing on their mind and that is eating!!

Keep reporting and good luck.

Ya it happened to me this mornin' too. Four trips to the Croix in the last three weeks yielded 2 wally or sauger to bring home each time along with plenty of smaller ones to throw back. Also sunnies, crappies, smallmouth,sheepers, rockies, silvers and channel cats mixed in.

So this morning I got the chance to take my wife fishing. She got a sheep and rocky; I got one puny C-cat. I was looking forward to seeing her have lots of fun with the stizostedions. Oh well if 4 out of 5 trips to any body of water were as good as the Croix has been for the last month, I'd have to fish MORE THAN 100 times a year.

      Pretty sure mine will be ready by the time the ice comes off our area lakes.... untill then, I hear the suckers are already starting to run

      Was a good winter for sure. Had a blast and learned a few things fishing with you, Chris.

      We drive by the stripping station on Cutfoot weekly & try to keep people up on that too. I think it may be a bit later here, will check it out tomorrow

      Have a couple spots that are 10' open, I live on north side of Pike Bay, large rocks along shoreline helps heat water. Hard to see the ice condition on the Bay as there is a lot of slush on top, once that melts and the warm sun hits the ice it will go quick. Our new Chesapeake pup discovered she lives on a lake yesterday.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
