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.

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 have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?

      How much ice??????
