Pine Lawn???????????????

5 posts in this topic

I heard a rumor yesterday that a 15" Crappie was caught underneath the HWY 16 bridge. Has anyone else heard this and is there even any Crappies around there?

Pine Lawn is just outside Grand Meadow on Hwy 16. It is a small impoundment of Deer Creek. There are a good number of crappies in there - besides that, the biggest crappie I have ever seen came out of there. Most of them are everage size, however, and have been incredibly hard to find in the summer.

I have also caught several decent largemouths there. Other species I have caught - sunfish, catfish, bullhead, and carp. Its not a great fishery or anything but it can be a sleeper when you want to try something different.

I have driven by that a 100 times and always thought that looked so good. Interesting. A little far to drive to bank fish but still interesting.

      I think stoney point is good for wheelers only.  Tried horseshoe bay and followed the pressure ridge and could not find a place to cross.  Went back to Whipholt which had a good landing and went toward stoney point  Had to cross a small pressure ridge by the Island.  Once crossed, all the way to stoney  with no problem  fishing was SLOW, tried the deepest part of the Paris Trench all the way to 24ft. thinking of one last trip this weekend

         Thanks for the update, I completely understand why you choose to post this here instead of a different thread. I haven't been on the ice in WEEKS now, might be retiring the ice gear for the season and waiting for open water pannie season...Or the big lake.

      Hey monstermoose Im in princeton or by Longsiding.  I think I have a decent spot as the farmer says he sees them out there a lot.  Never found a better scout than a farmer.  Just havent hunted turkey much.  I appreciate the generous offer and the advice. Looking forward to watching my boys get the turkey fever.  Last year I would have hit you up for those spots as we did some sitting in blind to watch the sun come up. Thanks all for the advice and helping a new turkey hunter out.

      Know a guy that is out there today.  Unfortunately he is not fishing as he got hung up a breaker this morning.     The main sheet sounds like it is fairing well.  They have been accessing the lake from Whipholt and driving across.  Long drive.  Not sure about other accesses.
