Fish will still be in the 15-25 foot range depending on what stretch of river you are fishing. North of Stillwater you will be fishing more shallow near current seams and breaks.

Yes, it was lifted sunday. Water is dropping now and sounds like the fish are biting. Planning to find out this weekend. I check rivergages.com and go to st paul district under mississippi river and passes. You will see a listing for the St Croix at Stillwater. Water above 83 is no wake. Normal is at 75.

It's a win for the Lake Association who don't want you on, what the majority of members consider, "their" lake. That is where this all formed from, the minds of those privileged individuals that want to remain amongst their fellow elite. How dare we suburban commoners feel we deserve free access to "their" resource. Can you imagine the inconvenience of hearing an outboard cruising along while sitting on your deck overlooking the water, enjoying a cup of coffee on a beautiful Sunday morning. It's too much for one to fathom. It's the HOA's and LA's way of saying stay off my lawn but now they have something to point to and use as a backing for their argument. Money talks...period.


I get all that, my question was not clear it seems. The articles state this is a trial period. I am wondering how they would show it was not successful/versus successful. I have trouble envisioning how they could say it wasn't successful is my point. If nobody uses the inspection site or it is used properly it seems they would say it is successful. Doesn't seem that there could be a way to say it wasn't successful? If they issue tickets they get money too.

How was the signage at the lake? I am curious how they are advising people of what is going on at the lake.

Not sure how it could be said that this is not successful? If people don't use the check in station and don't fish those lakes would that be considered a win for the check in station program?

Sure hope this does not come to the east side of the metro.

Nice work Jfro50! Any hot colors for crankbaits? Guessing the usual firetiger was good. For some reason in the river leadcore usually outfishes long line for me too on most trips.

Sorry for the late reply...just now seeing this. All depends on water clarity. As you probably know, each bay/"lake" on Tonka acts like its own little lake. In the clear water sections, they'll spawn a lot deeper - I've caught them as deep as 10 feet or even more and been convinced they were spawning. In the bays with more stained water, they'll spawn in a foot or two.

I've often found that they like to spawn under docks in the clear water sections and will go much shallower when they've got a dock overhead. Sort of stands to reason they'd either want to be deep or have some protection overhead. I suppose it's bad enough fending off the pike and other predators that want to raid the nest without having to worry about an eagle or osprey carrying them off on top of that.


Thanks for the reply. Didn't think of docks as prime habitat. Will check there the next time out. Sounds like fish are biting good out there. The next few days could be tough though after the cold front hits tonight.
