Shore fishing the St. Croix

Recommended Posts

I fishi the St. Croix from shore right in Stillwater by the drawbridge. What sort of a setup and where should I fish if I am looking to get into walleyes this time of the year.

Well, if I were you, I'd try slip bobbering just above the bottom with a Red hook & a Leech.

I'm sure you'll get tons of other good ideas from fellow FM'ers too.

Give the slip bobber, Red hook & Leech, cast out in a big matrix, cover a good sized area and let us know how ya do...

Good luck!

You can also try across the river under the draw bridge. With floating jighead and minnow or leech.

I will give it a whirl. I usually pull a lindy rig with a crawler right off of the pavilion, I haven't caught anything but sheepshead and white bass. One sheepshead hit 24". Anyway I will let you know how I do.

Try focusing on the area just upstream from the pavilion where it curves into the river. That's where the Mulberry Point spring outlet was. It used to boil up until the Corps redid the river front. I haven't been there with the boat thermometer to see if it's still cooler temp lately. Anyway it still gets hit hard from boat fisherman.

Also try the Bayport area there is a park with plenty of shoreline access near Anderson Point.

Good Luck,

Ferny

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
