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 have a little can of lock deicer taped to the gas tank under my tank cover. I haven't had to use it for the lock, but did use it the other weekend when the latch froze up.
    • Because they didn't need to. President Obama was totally open to the press corps and never threatened to "throw them out of the White House". President Obama never refused to take a question from a legitimate and credentialed reporter and told the reporter he represents "fake news". And of course President Obama would never think of ridiculing a reporter who suffered a serious physical problem. We are moving from an erudite, articulate and thoughtful man,  sensitive to others, to an inarticulate baboon who cannot put more than 140 words together at one time. The Donald is going to destroy the Republican Party.   Remember I said this and on this date. I won't need to say it again.
    • we dont remember asking you!!!!!!!!
    • Have to admit, I was expecting a different conversation based on the subject line of this thread!   Would it work to have a hole in 3 corners, with the guys grouped toward the center  with their backs to each other? Assuming your hub has 2 doors, that would allow people to get in/out without too much hassle.   I'm also assuming if you're currently fitting three people in a three person hub, you're keeping things rather scaled down. I have a three-man, but once I get chairs, a heater, minnow bucket, etc. in there it's really a 2-man.  
    • Well Walleyehooker, you may be in luck, because after 5 days of this warm weather it may take a week or two of cold and snow to just get back to point zero on the trails anyway! So you maybe back by then.
    • A 26 incher from a couple weeks ago.  Fattie too.
    • Great pics!  Thanks for the update!  I'm headed up this weekend and hope to get on 'em.  I'll report back next week with my findings.
    • Oh c'mon you guys they all say 60 Db, ya right! You'd have to be nuts to spend double just cause it says Honda or Yamaha on it.
    • Taking fish from our non-sustainable lakes to consume???!?!?!?!!!  *GASP* O MY GOD....  
    • This has worked best for me. I can have better access to the door for all and a good spot for the heater.
