Saint-Croix Lake

Known for natural and elegantly urbanized beauty, Saint-Croix Lake is one of the most extraordinary places you'll ever see. Boasting some of the world's finest fishing spots and simply mesmerizing sunsets, much of the tourist-adored Saint-Croix Lake is outlined by multi-million dollar houses, ultra luxury yachts and private water planes, meaning this is a super comfortable, hassle-free angling destination. The clear waters of exquisitely picturesque Saint-Croix Lake with its gorgeous harbors flow into Michigan Lake through the short Conifer Channel, renowned for its fairytale beauty and charm. But the idyllically serene outer beauty of this place is further enhanced by the ideal fishing opportunities it has in store for the avid anglers. With an abundance of fish species inhabiting this scenic aquatorium, ranging from Northern Pike, Brook Trout, Walleye, Blue Catfish, Muskellunge and Smallmouth Bass just to name a few, Saint-Croix Lake is an unforgettable fishing getaway almost too good to be true!

Fairytale Fishing

Enchanting gingerbread houses, beautiful piers and gorgeous yachts surrounding Lake Saint-Croix make up the idyllic beauty of this pastoral landscape… And what better spot to appreciate the fantastic scenery of this urbanistic fairytale than from offshore - on a convenient pontoon right in the middle of the crystal-clear Lake. Feast your eyes on the fabulous houses sinking in the countless shades of brilliant green, specked with blossoming trees and blooming flowers as you inhale the floral aroma carried by a fresh spring breeze. The deep waters of this serene fishing spot are perfect for spending the day casting away and hooking Brook Trout, Brown Trout, Walleye and Blue Catfish. It’s easy to lose track of time here, listening to the joyful cries of seagulls and tranquilizing sound of splashing waves as you angle under the clear spring skies that suddenly becomes overcast with majestic clouds, hiding the pastoral landscape from view…

King of the Green Bay

This incredible fishing location on the south-east bank of Saint-Croix is called the Greenpoint Bay and has one of the lake’s most remote spots for enjoying the wildlife scenery on the entire lake. Here, the sloped grass grown shore gradually descends into the cool shallow waters, a bit silty closer to shore and turning to a mystic deep blue as your sight glides further towards the horizon. Loosen up and relax as you feel the old wooden docks under your feet and catch Trophy Northern Pike and Muskellunge with the refreshing spring breeze caressing your face. The spiritual beauty of this picturesque landscape, create a serene and empowering “King of the World” atmosphere that restores your energy, rejuvenates your body and soothes the tired mind.

Vanishing Rock Light

Let’s move down the Conifer Channel, a waterway connecting Lake Saint-Croix and Lake Michigan. Here you’ll find a marvelous sunset spot next to the beautiful Vanishing Rock Light, a notorious lighthouse marking safe entry to the welcoming waters of Saint-Croix. Overlooking the clear deep waters of Lake Michigan, this enigmatically charming lighthouse was built back in the 1880's and has quite a history of its own. Originally called Michigan Breakwater Light, it was renamed by the locals after the breakwater vanishing mystery in 1930, when on a stormy night four lighthouse keepers disappeared from their duty stations without a trace. At the time, they were officially thought to have been swept out to sea by a freak wave. But ten years later, when three more keepers vanished on a still spring night leaving behind important personal belongings, there was no place for such mundane conclusions. The case officially remained unsolved and the lighthouse earned its spooky name, attracting many visitors throughout the year. Cool story, huh? But this spot is appealing to anglers for entirely different reasons: big Yellow Perch, meaty Brook Trout, plump Walleye and savory Smallmouth Bass are just to name a few.

From Dawn Till Dusk
From Dawn Till Dusk

This incredible fishing location on the east bank of Lake Saint-Croix is conveniently located atop a lovely pier stretching along the Conifer Channel. This remote area is adored by local anglers for two reasons, one of which makes this spot a true gem among fishing locations. This place is known to be the “it” spot among locals for going after fish like Walleye, Brook Trout, Yellow Perch, Brown Bullhead Catfish or Rock Bass and probably the best spot for mighty Smallmouth Bass... so many delicious dwellers lurking in these deep waters. The second reason is this spot’s unique sightseeing specialty. Here you can enjoy both the best sunrise and sunset views on the entire lake! While in the early morning hours the sun gleefully shines from behind, caressing you with its heartwarming rays, as the evening draws closer you can enjoy the fiery sunset and reflect on the day gone by...a fulfilling day of fishing...a day from dawn till dusk.
