I have been catching crappies on Kraemer and Upper Spunk but the size is a little small. Has anyone been on Kings lake for crappies?? Trying to find some bigger ones.

Caught some really nice ones (9"-13")on the river yesterday by accident walleye fishing. They were hitting a 3/8oz jig with a fathead!!! I didn't keep any but i caught a dozen keepers or so.

How deep are you finding the crappies? I have not been able to find any when I have gone out.

I have found them in 15-22 feet. Sometimes i will mark them on the vex in 30+ but i havent fished at that depth yet. I would think that those might be the bigger ones.

I've shared the same results 15-22 FOW. I found them near a deep hole on the river with a 14' bar that runs through it and they seem to be all over the edge of the bar. Was out yesterday and it was just walleye and rock bass there don't know where the crappies moved too?

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
