Walleye Advice

Recommended Posts

FishHawkk

I've been fishing the river for one year now and I'm looking to expand my fishing areas. I have been sticking mainly to the kinni narrows and prescot areas. Does anyone have any advice for the many sand points on the river. I try them but give up quickly because I just don't have confidence in these spot.

Any general advice would be great. I think I've only caught one walleye outside of the narrows and prescot bridge.

FishHawkk, I am a transplanted northerner that grew up fishing on Vermillion, and I've found the techniques that work up there don't always work on the river. But, fast trolling with a floating Rappalla on a long line over those sand points will usually pickup a few walleyes. Dark for dark days, bright for sunny. If your marking fish deep just switch to a shad and go down and get em.

My advice is that the sand points don't hold fish all the time and if you get through one without getting fish keep moving. There are many places to fish on the Croix where you don't have to play bumper boats, many shorelines hold fish, and go un touched.

sand is very hit or miss, sometimes it holds limits sometimes it holds nice sheephead but very little else. there seems to be no rhyme or reason to it either.

I have found the sand to be hit and miss, when you can find a transition in bottom from sand to rubble/ mud ect. it can really produce.

      You can fish a little meat out of the ones with really big claws. Tails are easy once you get the hang of it. Meat pops right out then just pull the intestine(?) and you're good to go.  I'd rather people use fish guts as crawfish bait rather than throwing them in the woods for my dog to find

      You can also get the ArcGIS app to access the county files on your mobile or download the .kmz files on the county site to use in Google Earth. Either way very useful.

      Well most people use a fish head or two in the trap as bait.  Any type of raw  meat will probably work well. No need to purge them as they are coming out of clean water. Just boil the whole crawdad in salt water or better yet in a Cajun mix! The tails are about the only part worth messing with. Cliff

      I live on Little Cormorant Lake, I believe sometime next week that it will be open.  The lakes out there are changing fast!

      we got a lot snow down in the twin cities than up north and temps are a lot higher than it was in 2013.   I think we will have enough open water to fish the opener.   No one needs to cancel!  I HOPE any way

      what do you use for bait?  I heard you can't use left over fish guts.   do you have to soak them?  sorry not sure what that process is called.

      meerkat, Many people eat the rusties. Very tasty but like walleye wings it takes a lot for a meal! Cliff

      I just got an e-mail from Brent Flatten in the Tower Fisheries Office stating that they hope to get the Dock in by Monday if the river clears of ice. Will set the trap nets on Tuesday and the first net lift will be on Wednesday. They may even collect eggs Wednesday if there are enough ripe females. Very good news! Thanks for your update Brent!

      I would imagine the man made pepin connected to the sippi is open not the actual lake pepin?
