Jim lives just ten minutes from the Croix and has fished it numerous times.
We launched in Hudson at 5.30am and headed for the swing bridge. We caught smallmouth, freshwater drum, channel catfish and walleye drifting crawlers along the bottom in swift current.
The day was nice as Dad and I explored a new river and Jim filled us with stories of successful fishing outings on this river.
It was a great day!
