Just wondering if anyone has been out on cross lately, have been stuck in college and have been itching to go up there and hit it for a day. Is it worth the drive for any crappies. any reports would be great! thanks

I wish I could describe how to get to the access point on the north end. I can drive there, but the only road I know is Cty. 55 north of Cty. 11. The bait shop in Pine City can give you a better idea. There is also a street south of where the river enters that you can access the lake. Again, the bait shop can point that out.

The bait shop is right in Pine on 61. If you get off at the exit and head east you will hit stoplights. Hang a left there and go past a&w. You will come to a 4 way stop. hang a right.Its right there on the right hand side. Cedar Creek outfitters. They will tell you how to get to the lake and where to fish. I would say off the edge of the sunkin island. There is an access on the south end too. If you would keep going past cedar creek after you hang that right right you will come to a stop sign. Hang a right there. Follow that road til you go over the river. Go about another half mile and there is a little development with some newer houses on the left. Take a left on the first road into that little development and it should dead end at an access to the lake. We are driving on Pokegama but I havent been to cross this year but I would say there should be atleast 14". Good luck

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.

      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?
