Upper St Croix Lake, Douglas County

I agree the lake has taken a dive on numbers of quality fish over the last 10 years.  However, there are still a few,  I mean only a few QUALITY large mouth and small mouth.  Over the weekend we saw at least 4 large mouth push the scales around the 5 lb mark, but that was 4 out of X amount which is a small percentage.  We did see a 18" walleye come top side as well to be photo'ed and released. Pike are tiny, although 5 years ago we saw a dead 40" floating in the spring in the North Bay. Pan fish have declined like crazy because of overfishing/harvesting.  Years ago it was a simple ice bite for nice numbers and size of crappies.  Wish the DNR would make more stirct rules to match that of NW MN Ottertail county.  Same goes for all WI waters.  The WIDNR is behind in keeping good quality inland lakes managed well. All we can do as anglers is promote the improtance and spread the good word.  Tight Lines, JH
