Crappies

Hello All!

It's great having this open water now. I am hoping to gain some insight regarding early season crappies on the St. Croix. Where to go? When to go?? & and at what times are the best. I have already been twice, but have only been able to find smallies and northerns. Any info. would be greatly appreciated. The surface water temp. has been anywhere from 56 F-69 F North of Stillwater.

I know that other have more and better info than I do...but I have found crappies right around the Baypoint launch. There is a rocky point (sometimes underwater) that runs parallel to shore that protects the homes just downriver of the launch. I have caught lots of crappies mixed in with walleyes here in about 20' of water.

Some of the eddy's just downstream from the Taylors Falls bridge have been good for me in the past. Fun to watch the rock climbers in that area. Down just upstream from Franconia around the rock island can be real good. I've heard of areas around Osceola that are supposed to be good. For sure, in Stillwater SE corner of the bridge is good too.

If your fishing from boat try the bays between hudson and stillwater. There is a bay just south of the hudson bridge that can produce some early season crappies and sunnies.

Good luck tell us how you do.

Hi everyone,

This is my first post on this forum and am truly excited in being part of the discusions. I have been fishing the st. croix for about seven years and have alot to learn. I was curious if anyone has been fishing for crappies near the lift bridge with any success or other parts of the river. any info is greatly appreciated.

I was out most of the day today and reeled in 1 Crappie near Anderson's Bay in about 12 feet of water.
