Lake City Crappies

Recommended Posts

Chipes

Guys, I caught some nice white crappies and a few blacks about a month ago down in the Lake City stretch of the river on a slip bobber and crappie minnow. But it's been awhile....has anyone been fishing for them down there? Caught any? Would like to hear if anyone is catching any, and what depth. Thanks guys. Good Fishing.

A week ago or so I ran into some old timers who had a sweet pile of slabs they had gotten on the Wi side. I was told, almost directly across from Lake City, suspended in 23 FOW.

I caught 4 trolling #5 raps on the WI side (same area) a week ago too. 2.4 MPH in 14-18 FOW. They're still out there for you too. Good luck!

Are you marking schools of them at any certain depth? Or do you think they are just spread out all over the place? Were you associated with any structure? How far off shore were you trolling? Thanks. Good fishing. Look for 17 foot fisher boat saturday.

I was out in front of the Y camp. I was trolling in 14 to 18 FOW. I was obviously, not fishing for crappies though. I marked "tons" of fish, but it is hard to tell if/what they were. I don't recall "schools" though, but again, I was trying to stay on a break and in a certain depth, at a certain speed, so I was not concentrating on "seeing fish" on the graph. I think they might have been stragglers here and there, but who knows. I've never fished for crappies on the river, so I have no experience there. All I know is that the 4 that I caught were "big" - and I let them all go.

Good Luck!!

      So have had this small lake on my radar seance last spring, was out there and got some really nice crappies a buddy and his dad got some nice northerns, so like I said small lake max death of 5-6 ft and that is pretty much in one spot but does kind of get close to shore where there is trees in the lake. So my thought is to sit on the edge and fish for crappies and toss out a tip up closer to shore??

      Thinking about bring my wheelhouse up there tomorrow far a day of fishing and spend the night any new reports

      Was on Green Thursday , fished from 3:30 to 8:30. Caught 3 nice crappies and some small perch. Funny thing the crappies were caught between 4 and 5. Not a bite after dark,  they  ( or something) was there but would not bite on anything I put in front of them. Caught the 3 in deep water with a frostee and minnow. Good Luck Moose.  I may try Little Elk this afternoon

      The wing bolt on my auger sheared off yesterday. So I spent some time getting the bolt out. Then I was off looking for the strongest bolts I could find. The auger is good to go again. Seeing I have about 5000 holes drilled with it upgrading the bolts is worth it. There is a lot of ice this year and I am not having any issue powering through it with dcd985 and the clam plate. I am getting some of the ice chips out of the hole before busting through, but I did that with the lazer mag too.  I think I am going to hit green lake after dark for some crappies with my father in law.

      Mielkez, I thought that the area you are now targeting was supposed to get the most snow from the coming storm. Cliff

      That’s exactly what finding right now nothing shallow. 20 seems key.
    • james_walleye
      I'd concentrate on the buffalo/annandale area just northwest of the metro. There's a ton of good lakes. Clearwater, Pulaski, pleasant. The list is long.

      Alright guys. Change of plans. My group is concerned about lake travel. After consulting a snowfall map we've decided to stay south of the line that runs from basically Duluth to Lake Winnie area. Were coming from Wisconsin and don't know anything about MN lakes. Rather not do Mille Lacs. Looking for something a little smaller. Not asking for spots. Is there a lake within and hour or two to the north or east of the cities that fishes strong? Looking for panfish mostly with some walleye mixed in. Thanks.

      Pretty sure you DON'T know where this one is.... I see you creeping around, looking for my spots...lol
