Fished the St. Croix on Sunday, caught NOTHING. Tryed everything, Worms, Minnows, Suckers. Tryed under 94 bridge on the WI side. Also tryed from some little park in Hudson. Where should we have gone? Also, anything near Stillwater?

STILLNOFISH

Johnnythunder,

Try under the lift bridge on the wisconsin side in Stillwater. There is some excellent fishing directly under the bridge as well as the north side of the rock pile you will be standing on. Try bobber and minnow(it is about 12 feet around the area). You can also throw out a worm and see what you catch. Lots of Bass and Walleyes around this area. Walleyes are later in the evening. Good Luck

I have fished under the 94 bridge on the minnesota side this year and have never been skunked. The people I fish with and I have caught largemouth, smallmouth, carp,and sheepshead (still no walleye, but we dont stay late). Mostly We use leeches and crawlers, but we have used topwaters and plastics with success for bass.

Also fishing has slowed a little, not sure if its because its later in the season or if its because the water is much lower than earlier in the season.

      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
