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.

Hondavxr... If yer out on that ice in a few weeks let me know cause I want to get your picture as you float downstream.River is open from the Stillwater bridge up.Wondering if you guys have noticed ,is the water more murky?If so that may effect the bite.

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

      I agree I have not heard much on here about the area.  Headed to shields on Saturday,  hope it pans out.

      I have a Striker Hardwater and the Wife has the Clam Rise suit. Both are great and we chose them based on how they fit, each body is different and you will find different brands and even product lines within a brand will fit different. I would try stopping by Thorne Bros and see what they have in stock to try on, they might have more upstairs if you dont see your size.  Float suits dont go on sale much other than the Blaine Ice show, St Paul Ice show, Black Friday and then after the season.

      This are premium Rods from Alpha Angler. This company is the rod sponsor for 2017 Bassmaster Angler of the Year Brandon Palaniuk. The Rebound: is a glass cranking rod. Best I've ever used. Fantastic feel. The Zilla: is a a perfect all around Rod. I primarily used it for pitching jigs. I've owned these rods for less than a year they were purchased in spring 2018. I just have way more tackle rods reels etc. Than I have room for. Rods new retail together are $475 I'm selling them as a package for $320. Or individually for $175 each.  I'm in the north metro area. And am willing to drive a reasonable distance if need be. Feel free to make an offer but a serious ones only. Also I have photos of the Rods if youd like just email me and I'll send then to you. Let me know!  Email me at  [email protected]

      I posted some pic's of the heaves on above Fishing Reports info post.   Pretty interesting if you never seen anything like that.   CRUNKY CRUNCHY sounds of ice on rocks last night as trucks drive on an off.....always fun.   T

      Went out just to check ice depth today, measured 13.5" on lake one a couple hundred yards out from the public access in town.  No snow left, very slick, and lots of heave action on a majority of the shoreline.

      Me too. Got out few times before but nothing really going on. This was my best outing yet for me this season. Hoping to have more of these days!  I'm glad you enjoy my videos. You can follow my channel if you want to see all my videos. I only post some on this site.
