Fishing Report on 5/27/2020 St. Croix River 

Today on the St. Croix River I was supposed to be consulting  with a new client. The weather was going to be a little wet for them so they decided to move the date which I was fine with. I wasn't going to miss an opportunity to get out on my own.  A little wet really means rain all day.  Rain doesn't stop this fisherman. It came with a light NW wind most of the day and water temps of 68 degrees. 

I have been working really hard to fine tune the electronics on the boat. What a good day to find a new location for Walleyes and Sauger. I planned on using the whole day to search and destroy fish plus I needed a few for a family Walleye dinner.  As I get to the first area that I think might be holding fish I start to dial in the electronics. I did a single pass over a contour it showed me a crazy amount of fish below. Knowing how Walleye appear on the screen I mark the spot and turn around to try it out. These fish were in 20-25 FOW. 

I setup on the waypoint, drop the Jig and with in seconds the first Walleye but it's a shorty and the 2nd , 3rd, 4th all short and next was my 1st Sauger 18 inch and they just kept coming non stop. I know you can only keep 6 total. When I got to 5th fish and the 6th would have been way to too easy I just released everything else knowing 6 ends my day. 

My confidence was sky high and I wasn't even on the water for an hour yet. I released 27 Walleye & Sauger mixed in one spot. No other species was caught. All under an hour. 

The rain started coming down hard now. I thought that was to easy so I left this very productive spot to find another. You can guess what happen next.  YEP, a few drum a few white bass a few medium Perch but not another Walleye or Sauger to be had

I had one last fish to catch for a limit. I have the way-point back to the productive spot I can pickup one more get out of this rain and head home.

When I got back to the spot. THEY WERE GONE. So I settled for the 5 to get me out of the rain. Really other then the rain it was a Great day on the water. Here are the eaters I kept for the fryer.

Until next time keep those lines tight.
