New crappie spots

21 posts in this topic

As the warmer temps continue to rise we have been forced to try hundreds of spots looking for crappies. We have tried the deeper regions around rocks, around the cribs, the weeds, gravel bars and finally had some luck around the root wads. Root wad fishing can be tough, normally they are in muddy regions up very shallow and you will need an extension.

Ya know the seal is cool and the auger in the dirt is neat but I can't stop looking at that picture and wonder...how long until that tuft of hair covering my forhead just falls of the main chunk? grin.gif

Maybe if you were drilling with a Nils you might not have to work so hard. That would save you some Jonny. wink.gif

The way those Nils cut I don't know if it would work, we had to find the dullest blade in our parts department just to hang onto it. If I busted out a Nils I would be having tea in China right now.

      I use my 1660 Lund Pro-V Tiller for fishing Superior all of the time. I have 2' of track on both sides to hold my 4 aluminum rod holders and my triple trees. If you start using magnum dipsys with the ring they can pull hard enough to break most plastic rod holders. In the spring you are basically fishing the top 15' with plugs so any rod holder will do. Once you start trying to get to 40' and beyond is when you need to beef things up. I also have a mast and use the single big boards that Marine General sells for getting a good spread with you plugs. Once summer rolls around I will use Yellow Birds with 5 colors of lead on the outside  and dipsy's with 65lb Power Pro or steel depending on what depth I am trying to achieve to pull spoons or flies.

      I see that the Royal Dutchman website had a blurb a couple days (2/17) ago that said nothing was happening yet, they also don't know how thick the ice is.  As usual hoping for a long spring season before it closes for walleye.  On a positive note most of the snow must have already melted with the record warmth so maybe won't be so much to cause runoff later on?
