St. Croix River proves ready for excited anglers.

Today on the St. Croix River I went out with a buddy of mine to explore new contours and possible locations for Walleye spots anticipating the up and coming season.
We also wanted to do a little fishing for Jumbo Perch. The day started out a little rough, winds out of the north at 12 mph. Which can be a little choppy.  I have a great Perch location on the river and with time and patience they will be there. Water temperatures sitting at 52.4 degrees, I think the water is warming nicely and this Walleye season should start out with a bang. We decided to anchor because of the chop in the water and the fishing was on with lots of different species.  Many Perch but on the smaller side of what I normally see.  The Perch usually run between 10 to 12 inches and today they ran from 6 to 10 inch. We didn't find the Jumbos, but 9 to 10 inch fish make some nice eaters, my buddy kept a few for his dinner.
The fishing kept us busy in 18 ft of water and we went on to catch a lot of White Bass, Bluegill's, 2 Sheephead, 2 Red Horse Suckers, a Walleye which was released back in the water and of course Perch.  It was a fun day out and here are the Pictures of the Perch my buddy caught and kept.

Have a great fishing day !!!
