Today on the St. Croix the winds were out of the north at 12 mph with a light chop on the water.  The walleye I caught were found in 18 to 23 feet of water and were biting on rigs&jigs with night crawlers and minnows.  I kept the presentation slow to keep the bait in front of them and the fishing was fantastic.   I caught a dozen short fish that didn't make the size slot of 15 inches, and three 16 to 18 inch for a fish fry.  But the catch of the day was 29 inches and weighed in at 9lbs, 8oz. This girl was a football and she was released after a couple of photos.  Other fish caught today were sheephead, white bass and catfish. With fishing starting to pickup it doesn't matter if you're looking for walleye or pan fish, look no further than the St. Croix River -- it has it all.


Happy Fishing
