I'll be out on the river Satrday but I'm planning on fishing mid afternoon till the P.M.. Gotta prefish a bit and see whats out there for structure before the Riverrat tourney. I'm planning on trolling some cranks and might even twist a few live bait rigs but primarily I'm looking for the active fish on cranks this weekend. If you see a crestliner with tan and brown graphics & 90 yammie, motor up and say hello. I know you"ll be off the river by then but if you are out, stop and say hello.

Yep, coldfront conditions will make it a tough bite. Does this seem to affect the eyes down there like it does in lakes? I have found that in the upper Croix they continue to bite but with a bit less intensity. I'll keep an eye out for you Croixeyes. I am taking my dad out with me to see what we can dredge up out there. I'm sure the sheepshead will be willing to bite they seem to like my presentations grin.gif.

Tunrevir..I havent seen a presentation a sheepshead dosent like.As far as cold fronts on the river,down here is much like up river.Unless its an extreme front the fish do bite,maybe just a little slower.Our problem down here is the amount of forage in the water now,they say match the hatch but I think you have to make it look a little different from everything else....Good luck tomorrow...

I'm all set 3 dozen redtails in the bait well, 8 dozen crawlers in the cooler, coffee pot set for 3:00, alarm set for 3:15, warm gear in boat, reels oiled, new line spooled, new batteries in GPS, full of fuel, can you feel the blood pumping?? Going to hit the river early grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

Thanks Croixeyes,

Good luck to you and to Walli. Sounds like he is bringing in the red tailed army tomorrow. Walli, post how you did when you get back. I might have to make a quick bait shop run and shift my gears a bit. I was planning on bringing down a few small suckers and some crawlers just in case the crank bite is off. I thought that I'd try a few different depths, crankin combos and speeds to see if I can turn a fish or two. I might even have to take out the heavy lead and just bang them on the head a bit. Redtails in the metro? Any hints to where a fella might pick one or two up? I'm thinking about putting in at Beanies or up at Bayport. One good thing is that witht the cool weather the "boat" people will not be giving us to many wakes to deal with. grin.gif Good luck to all, I'll be in a tan crestliner with brown and tan graphics and a 90 yahmaha, frs radio tuned to 3 sub channel 7 shooting to get on the water by 3:30 p.m..

      I agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?
    • Slopfishin
      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.  
    • TomWehler
      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.

      I camped at a couple sites a few years ago.  no docks, but most of the sites had a half way decent place to put the boat in.  one had a decent log to tie to.  another I threw a couple anchors out back and was able to tie off to a couple trees to keep the boat close yet off the rocks.
