Report for 3/19

Today was a slow day. I think I need to find a place that is more consistant. I was in the Bayport area on the WI side. Ice is around 10-16 inches but with about 3 inches of slush ice. Ice was very inconcistant and varied from place to place. Fished in about 43 ft of water. Only one slabber today. I did notice that the minnows and baitfish are everywhere. My Marcum never stop flashing from the schools moving through. Its hard trying to fight the native baitfish for a bite from a fish. I am going to be out on Monday morning so give me a holla if you see me, I'll be in a Eskimo traveler shanty. Good Luck and stay safe.

I was out there sun. from 12 to 5 and slow was the word. I started in 34ft and then hit the hole in about 41 and we didn't even get a bite. terrible. The river has really slowed down as of late for me. confused.gif

Again baitfish every where I went. My Marcum was lit up the whole day. Only manage 2 slabbers and a moon eye. I fished in 42 ft of water. For some reason it does seem like the fishing has slow down at the Croix. I think it has to do with the baitfish, because you have to fight with them to get a bite. But once in a while there is lazy fish who will go for the easy kill. That's when you catch one. I might start moving in closer to the shores. Good luck guys, looks like there might be a few more weeks before the ice is gone at the Croix. Have fun

I agree. I fished all weekend and only ended up with 4 crappies that were keepers. The weather was absolutely beautiful so that kept me out there. Good Luck!!

Went out there today from 10:00am - 12:30pm. Alot of baitfish like all the posts have been saying. Did end up catching a 15" walleye on a waxworm, and missed one good fish on a minnow.

Nice day but like all the posts lately alot of bait moving around under the hole.

If the ice is going that fast that means I better get my boat ready. Croixeyes you'll see me floating down the river, not in my portable, but in my boat. grin.gifgrin.gif

      No ice in Stuntz Bay yet but I did lift the boat out of the water onto the boathouse deck.  Easy to drop it back in if the water is soft after I get my deer.

      I took a trip this August to Buffalo River State Park to wade in the river while hitting the holes. My brother and I caught a variety of fish from red horse and chubs to a clam. All fish were caught on worm chunks. This spring/summer I want to use my new 5wt fly road and see what I catch

      Let’s get them 22-27 inch fish out of the lake

      I think anybody can see that the food/forage base is or has declined in Mille lacs.......having a lot of large fish doesn't help it at all. I think they should thin the herd.

      Well was a sad day today indeed. Got the kayak all vacuumed out and cleaned up. Then hung it in it’s winter spot in the shed. Trailer got a cleaning to. But until next year so long open water. Time to finish putting the open water gear away and finish getting the ice gear out.

      10/21/18     I have hunted in the Hutchinson area the last two weekends with my Dad, son, and some friends. Dakota ducks are trickling through central MN as the calendar migration has begun. With strong NW blows before or during the past two weekends, we have harvested mallards, gadwalls, redheads, bluebills, canvasbacks, and ringnecks, as well as a couple of geese hunting from a boat blind on some shallow lakes. This calendar migration should continue over the next couple weeks whenever we can get a strong NW or West wind. It will take some more cold and frozen water in Canada to get the big Canadian birds to come down--hopefully that happens before Thanksgiving. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Snow?  Yeah I finally ran into some today.     And I HAD to get them on the tailgate! 😅   And that is one of the reasons to leave that stuff in MN for a little while.  😎

      Wow, I am certainly getting beat up over on this side of the fence today.  On month old posts and mostly by the mods oddly. ☹️
