....crappies galore......

5 posts in this topic

.....a decent crappie bite continues here on the river, slipped a few home for a fish dinner and released the others to be caught another day....the slow flow on the river allows you to anchor and fish spots that are normally impossible other times of the year...slip bobber and a plain hook, 8'fow, has been the ticket...decent slabs too!

...have found the stripper action to be poor on the lower end of pool 4, but the smallmouth are voracious...have done well with the bluegills also...chunky little pucks hangin out under the docks...the ones loaded with seaweed...middle of the week is your best bet as the recreational traffic is

still in full swing....and I am impressed that the jet skiers are becoming more responsible and courtious in the use of their craft...thank-you!!

Zobs,

I love to find the crappie. Can you give a general location? Maybe MN or WI side and what launch you went out of? Can always email william_wise@yahoo.com with more info. Thanks for the post, crappies are my favorite on the river and I don't see many posts on them.

I always do well with the white bass. But I do know many honeyholes marked in my GPS.

      Very high expectations. Especially that splake...36 inches would be 2.5 inches longer than what the state record is.

        Good for him holding that big pig.

      Going to hit it tomorrow. Haven't decided where we will but in at the junction or head towards birchdale. Have heard varying fishing reports. Any info is appreciated! Tight lines everyone!

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
