River Smallies!

Recommended Posts



I am a new member to the site, and love it already. I was curious if anyone on the St. Croix has been catching any good smallies north of the 94 bridge. If so how deep and what type of forage are they eating!!!

thanks for the help--fisher98
ps-how is the water level?

smally fishin up there can be real good.Its been a few weeks since we have tried up there
but earlier in the summer when we were getting rain we did really good.
I usually try to find any area where
water was draining into the river and would throw light jigs with a minnow or a crawler.
Make sure the crawler lays straight off the hook and work them slow.The minnows I would keep right on the bottom and jig a lot faster without picking it up too far.
good luck and post any results

Get away while you still can, this site is addicting! Just kidding, Welcome! I've never fishing the Croix because I'm limited to shore fishing, but I'm looking forward fishing it when I get my boat (fingers crossed). If you are really interested in some great info on 'Croix smallies review some of the old threads from the last couple of years. There is a lot of great info on the Croix and where to look for smallie action. Some of the post highlights cover rocky shoreline, minnows = smallie action, and what sections & structure have been producing.

      Yeah, Chris. I was hoping to get some color. Unfortunately, bright pink was not the color I had in mind.

      Went to the chain on the boat did not get to far. No cats had a good time felt good to hear the Yamaha purr. It's sure moving the water that is.

      Exactly, a 5fish limit would do wonders.

      Thanks to all for sharing.  I also hadn't heard of this before. Regarding the cheeks, what size does the walleye need to be to make them worthwhile?  I never keep any walleyes over 20".

      There were trucks out on Isle Bay yesterday, and ALLOT of snow remains on the main lake. I think significant open water for the opener is a long shot at best.

      I haven't been here in ages. But I have fished Moonshine, Caribou, Trout, Little Trout, Wabana, Bee Cee (when it held trout), Lucky, Kremer and Nickel. So this thread caught my eye.

      I live on the north side of Cass on the Pughole. We had 30 inches of ice out in front of my dock yesterday. Pughole is the flowage between Kitchie and Cass. I'm 200 yards off Cass and the current is pretty strong there. Top few inches was pretty mushy. Nothing happening as far as fish yet. But they are coming. Jumbos move in soon. Also seen a truck out off of Star Island on Monday evening. I imagine they have more ice out on the main lake than I have. I'm for sure going to be out ice fishing through next week at my place. Ice hasn't even begun to pull from shore at my place.
