Ice fishing for bass on the Croix


Guest

Recommended Posts

Has anyone found some good bass fishing going through the ice? I know most people don't target them but just wondering if anybody accidently came across a couple decent bass while wally fishing or something.

I haven't caught bass on the river during the winter but if you are targeting bass in the ice season then you should head up to Green L. in the Chisago area as the bass bite there on tip ups on a daily basis. I have caught many a largemouth out there when fishing for pannies. I'd search over around the Gleyers bay area in the 5-6' range. Tip up with a silver shiner of decent size should fit the bill. The bonus is yoiu might even hook into some of the large pie they have in there.

There was a spot I used to go to a few years ago south of Bayport. It was well off of the main channel, but still had a nice drop from about 15 down to 28 FOW. I caught a heap of smallies out there. I think if you want smallies, you should get into areas that have some rocks, nearby deep water, and out of the main channel. Kind of sounds like the medallion hunt? tongue.gif

OOOps!, Large pies wouldn't be so bad if they didn't get soggy! I meant pike. JW you seem to have fished alot of areas around here. Might have to hook up a river trip this summer.

Yep- I have spent alot of time on the Croix- know it like the back of my hand. Unfortunately, I don't get to the lower areas much any more after I moved up here to Stacy, but I have been able to really get to know the area above the dam and have done phenomenal up here at times.

      The mayflies are just starting in Frazier Bay.  We could see a few in the boat the last couple of days.  Then started seeing big trails on water yesterday and today.  I just got done cleaning 3 walleyes and they were full of them.

      Have the Mayflies started.  We are coming up end of July and trying to see what the time line for them are this year.  Not sure how the late ice out would effect the hatch.  Thanks in advanced.

      Just an update, walleye are still hanging on the week edges.  I caught mine in 8-10FOW again.  Lost one that was 4-5lbs.  Best part, I have yet to use livebait this open water season.  Basically the same technique as last week.     Only issue is finding the weeds that hold the fish.  Same as last week, just looking on SI, finding small transitions between weed edge, soft/hard bottom ect.     Once you find them, then you can spot lock/talon down and cast at them.     And, as before all fish were released.

      Saturday and Sunday were tough days on the water, NW winds post cold front. Got better yesterday and today. Took a retired friend out today and sent him home with 4, should have been 6 but I was off my game. Water Temps around 70. Unfortunately can only fish Thursday as I have to work a few days, this weekend. Safe travels on the Independence weekend!

      Wasn’t quite sure how this week would turn out because of all the reviews but have had a blast and caught some awesome fish. Very weedy in most of the lake canoe out to less weedy area and fished around the weeds caught multiple 4  even heavier bass in a row definitely recommend it
