Try the Croix. Better yet, go to the St. Croix River forum and post this question for Turk... he's an encyclopedia of fishing knowledge for that area!

Oh, also... there's a little lake called Nugget not far from RF.... beautiful spot w/good fishin'.

Maplegrovefisherman, welcome aboard.I would second the suggestion about giving the St. Croix River a try.It's a little slow now but it can be great if you hit it right.For panfish and northern pike,there's Bass lake, which is southeast of Somerset,east off of County road "I",in St. Croix county.There are alot of other lakes.Start at a bait shop for info.Good Luck Fishing!!!

Another lake is Little Falls lake in the Willow state park. It holds sunfish. perch, crappie, bass and northern pike. There may even be some trout in it but I never caught any. There's also supposed to be walleye in the lake, I tried for them a few times, nothing but northern and bass. I have caught alot of good sized panfish ice fishing.

I fished it when I lived in Hudson and only above the dam. Thats deeper water with some good structure and current flow. The lake shallows up towards the inlet and I have seen people fish the shallow water but never tried that. The lake doesn't see alot of fisherman, alot of the times I fished it I had it all to myself.

You can get a map of the lake at the office showing breaks and depths and I would opt for the year pass verse the daily fee because we use the park alot in the summer. Motors on the lake are not allowed in the summer and I was told that also meant no power augers. Even though I saw them used many times, I played it safe and used my hand auger. Good luck if you give it a try.

Fishing is Life.

    • yepper.............super bowl here we come!!!!!!!!!!!!!!😉
    • I just looked and saw that I was also a 10 year member on this site as of 12/11/2008...got me wondering if the fishingmn site was different, as I recall joining in march during a spring crappie boom on red.  Sure enough I joining that site as of March 2 2005.  It has been a great site to be a part of and have had great conversations, learned a lot, and have sadly seen too many members pass away.  Very odd on that part when I find myself shedding a tear for people I had no connection to other than the love of the outdoors and reading and exchanging info on the interweb!  
    • Camera are great. Shielded wire or wireless I use both. rl-sd good info on shielded, wireless I use 5.8ghz drone trans/rcvr effective and inexpensive all 12v run multiple devices, TV, monitors, tablet, smart phone.   Forced Air Furcace - only way to go. Ventless has CO issue and will put 4 gallons of water/moisture inside your house for every 20# of propane burned. If you go ventless bring a torch the following morning as the door will most likely be froze shut. I have a 6.5 x 12 WH, 19,000 BTU Suburban vented furnace well insulated took 9 min to heat from 8 deg to 70 deg. You will probably need to go to 25,000 minimum. My cealing at 82" and air duct to center of house & 4" round to door no ceiling fans. Have balanced temp all areas of house. On my next build I will add a second floor 2" and have a 12 x 2" channel from furnace to back of house with 8 x 2 multi channels to sides to duct heat. Fill other area with additional insulation.     I don't sleep in mine so no bunks and no range hood.   I would go all 12v lighting. Smaller flexible stranded wire, no A/C interference. Lights available equivelent to 75 watt only white, not yellow. You can get remote dimmers for about $12. I made mine 4 years ago putting 50 50 bright white strips in RV lights. Bottom lighting  pic before I put the new Suburban furnace in.  
    • Congrats on your 10 years Steve!! Made me look too, and it says since 8-11-2000..........    Holy carp, thats a long time ago!! Back in the day we used to have some pretty big get togethers on the Duluth forum.  Many B-side Bash's, a few garbage clean-ups, and a couple Lake Superior get togethers. I've met alot of folks from on here up on URL back in those old days of the Crappie Boom.  IBOT's and clamping, oh my😂      
    • I had my old boss once point out the number of posts I've made here.   " But that comes out to be just less than one post a day."   "I guess you are right, carry on."   And of course, I was also a member of Team Timeout a couple times myself.          
    • I do most of my posting at work so its a miracle I'm still employed.    Also I don't think you can call yourself a true member of the forum unless you've been put on time out at least once.  Back in the day I had a few time outs but I never knew why.  Whichever mod did it never informed me or gave me a reason.  
    • Most everyone on this site has been in the coroner at least twice, especially if they have been around for 10 years plus. I know I've been and I still have the same name since 2002-even though the date shows 2006, why I don't know.
    • Nope can't say I have been sick. I visit my parents in the old folks home so maybe that will be a good test. I may need to find another chunk of two to last me the winter. I kinda enjoy being in the woods and looking for it.
