Crappies

2 posts in this topic

There is a very nice crappie bite going on. Crappie fishing on the St. Croix can be a very fun experience, because if you get into them good the action is non stop. I like to cover areas with baitfish nearby, I cast and cover ground until I find fish. Crappies relate to sand points and rock shorelines. Also right now they appear to have come into the shallows, and stopped being suspended. 1/8 ounce jighead with fatheads will catch fish most days. I also use twister tails (half ring worms work too), but minnows are very good at making them commit. Also the bite is soft as a feather. Keep catchin'

Thanks Turk for the info, would a large Croix slab qualify for ugliest fish at Beanies? I'm hoping to make it out again this year to be put down by you and Croixeyes. Upriver fishing is easy compared to what you guys do!

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.

      Thanks Cliff! I've been very closely monitoring Pike Bay the last few weeks I'm not far from you as the crow flies right on the bay. Still sitting at 4-5 inches of ALL refroze slush. No good ice. It's flooding over pretty good with 1-3 inches water with the couple inches snow still on top. Hopefully the cold penetrates that snow and gets things going so I can run the sled right up the bay to McKinley by next weekend.

      The ice on the small pond on the west side of the road heading into SJU was able to hold my weight (which is substantial, alas).  I didn't have a chisel, and I wasn't about to go any further out.  Still, very good sign.  I'm sure there'll be guys out by the end of the weekend, if not sooner.
