Eric, I assume that you are planning on fishing the St. Croix. It's really no secret where to fish there. Put in in Bayport and just head to the warm water discharge that is up stream from there towards Stillwater. If you go under the power lines you have gone to far. I would fish in like 30 feet of water or so.

Eric down by Afton in 50 ft to 65 ft of water in the channel is good also.

As for what you need is a stout rod #5 circle hook 2-3 ounce weight with a 2 foot leader.

Bait, Gobs of nightcrawlers or 4 or 5 fat heads to a hook just sitten on the bottom.

Oh yea, heavy line I use 40# power pro.

That's a good question but hard to answer. But answer by my experience this year. I haven't fished the evening yet so I don't about the times but hear their is a good bite.

Last Monday and Tuesday the bite was on from 2:30pm to 6:00pm. But Friday and Saturday bad both bite days weather I think.

But I would stick to 2:30pm to 6:00pm.

    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work. 
    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
