I think I will wait until Sunday as it may actually hit 40 degrees. I have not had much luck the past few weeks from my usual spots both south of the 94 Bridge and out of St. Croix Bluffs. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Stay warm!

I plan to see the river and fish on Sunday.
I will be bow hunting on Saturday and setting up a few more stands.
Might be putting the boat away on Monday evening though.
Man I hate to say the sentence!

Can't complain though, we had a really, really good year!

Kingfish, we did ok last Saturday right in front of the bluffs boatramp, in 15 to 25 ft with a gold or silver jig with a fathead or shiner.

Larry, to you really HAVE to put your boat away? I have decided to not winterize my boat this year, and keep it ready for any warm weather that comes up this winter. No more cabin fever for me this year, hehe. And I think it will be a warm winter, even though this October had been harsh smile.gif

May not be where your fishing but how, that makes the biggest difference. I have fished south of 94 and the bluffs at least 8 times in the last three weeks and caught many walleyes every time. Alot are not of legal size but still fun to catch 30-40 fish a day. I find them in 28-40 ft of water. Get to them by sinking rappalas on leaders and trolling as slow as possible trying to keep the bait just off the bottom.
Works great for me. Remember to change colors alot because of the water color and the amount of light available at any given time of the day. Good luck

      Thanks! I have to admit that the plan starting the day was to pitch for smallmouth but the wind where we wanted to fish pushed us to plan B! Another reason to tell my wife why I need so many rods and reels and tackle boxes!

      Nice fish!

      Not seeing any reports from Mille Lacs so here is my 1st report! Hit the pond Saturday afternoon for a few hours of getting the rust off the boat, equipment and skills. Found the fish in cabbage in 10-12 feet of water. Trolling stick baits 2.0 - 2.3 mph. Only got 4 walleye (24", 25" and two 28") but they were very healthy! Not bad for a few hours of fishing! Good luck out there and make some memories!

      Who hates when your monofilament line wants to come off your reel. Let me share some tips and tricks with you on spooling your reel and help fixing this problem. https://youtu.be/CkFtOHn9nm0

      Ely area lakes were showing 69-71 today.  That was a warmer than expected surface temp but I doubt it goes very deep.  Very little spawn activity compared to past years for this weekend.

      I like the stretch upriver better but can only drift down that area.  I would wear my arms out traveling up stream!   Hopefully do a drift down soon.

      The stearms in the arrowhead are small very small I would recommend a 6 foot or short rod for most streams as you will be pitching your bait out. They are also over grown with brush wading these streams is a challenge. You will be fishing for mostly brook trout above the first posted boundary FYI it’s normally a large water fall but not always. Also the first week of June there will not be much from the lake to the first posted boundary anyways. Remember there special regs below the first posted boundary and the above the first posted boundary.  If you want to use your fly rod I would hit the small trout lakes in the area. A split shot and small chunk of crawler is my go to bait for Brookies. There are a few streams with some browns and rainbows but very few. If you are fly fishing look at Thompson lake by  devilstrack lake it’s catch and release. Mink lake, kimball lake are also good.

      Growing up in South Dakota I did quite a bit of fishing in the black hills for browns and rainbows, most of that fishing was best accomplished with a long pole and just drifting my bait down the stream if you can read the eddies and slacks in the water you should do fine.  Of course I'm assuming they bite the same up north as they do out west.  It was a kick when I went  back out there 2 years ago and on Sunday morning fished the little 6 ft wide stream running behind the campground, all the other campers were amazed that I would pull out a fish about every 20-30 ft no monsters but plenty of little beauties at 7-10 inches. If the water is clean and the fish are there you just gotta find out what they are eating at that time of year.  Hopefully this helps and if I'm wrong some of the guys with Minnesota experience will pipe up.
