Crappies

6 posts in this topic

I will be coming to the Grand Rapids area this weekend (Sept 22) and checking on any crappie reports. I am also wondering what the latest is on lake turnover and how that may affect the crappie bite.

I guy that i work with said they got a limit of real nice slabs over 12 inches out of leighton lake off hwy 6 north of willow lake. i guess you need to pay a few bucks to get on the lake but it is worth it for them nice slabs. He also got some sunfish and he said there was little chance of seeing anyone there to bother you.

No problem, there is plenty of room on the lake for some more guys. There are only a few houses and it gets little pressure. It has nice walleye too.

I think bassman was being sarcastic.

      Don't beat yourself up over it at all. I moved several times and you still caught more than I did. Looking forward to this weekend's weather, will not even need a shelter to check depths and move around..... Fingers crossed, I haven't found fish all year. Sure am amazed at the wheelhouses though, absolutely mind numbing the #'s...

      Fished Cannon lake this evening. I bounced around from 12-5ft of water and started to mark fish in 8ft so I set up there until dark. I saw a bunch of fish come in for a look but not one nibble. Tried every color and style spoon and jig I had but nothing.

      Best thing you can do if you won't be around is to put the house on fresh ice, don't drill any holes, and put it on blocks.  When people get into trouble is if it gets windy and they have open holes under the house, that rain starts blowing around on top of the ice, and starts swirling down into the holes under the house....that swirling water EATS ice, and can sink a house pretty quick.     As as far as the ice on the lakes, if you have 14-15 inches of good ice like most places around, you'll have no worries if you do what is posted above.
