Silvers and Crappies Must've Taken Today Off

Recommended Posts

JBMasterAngler

Launched out of beanies today in search of some silvers and crappies. Shad were everywhere, jumping out of the water for no reason...unfortunately no gamefish were nearby (or hungry). My dad actually a shad...a whopping 4 inches, but we managed to land it. 6.5 hours on the water and all we had to show for it was a 1 pound white bass and a 1 pound crappie. Couple the slow fishing with me breaking my electric motor and it made for a very bad day!

Hey JB, I'm going to show my ignorance here. What the heck is a silver? I'm pretty certain there ain't no Coho in the river. Lots of crappie north of Hiline pt. on the wisco side this past weekend. They were mostly right on the bottom in 17ft.

He meant White Bass. Commonly called Silvers, Stripers up here.

Them White Bass schools are always on the constant move. They can be there one minute and gone the next minute. There's alot of bait fish around right now and not a single game fishing feeding except roughies. Them Crappies are there if you can find them.

I marked lot's of fish (but they were probably shad) at the spot where I caught the crappie...our consensus is that we got to that spot too late in the day. Oh well, winter isn't too far away, we'll see what happens then.

And yes, "silvers" are a common name for white bass. Wouldn't it be pretty neat if the croix did have coho's though?

      Where else can you go and pull so many big walleyes? Just go in knowingly that you aren't going to keep anything. Sleeper option is better than portable . Limited action during the day anyway. Now sunset to sunrise can be game on all night long. We put back 14 over 22" last weekend. When I say we it was myself, wife and two kids under 7. This lake is a blast. Good Luck

      Was out last Saturday and moved a couple times then into the house for the overnight. No luck on walleyes but did see a lot of small perch on the camera at multiple locations and depths from 15' to 33'. It was still a fun time and that is the allure of Mille Lacs for me more than bringing anything home for a meal. I guess it is all what you are looking to accomplish. Have fun regardless!

      Last year I grabbed my new license a few days early and hit a lake east of here.  Had my new license in my pocket.  2 people on the lake and I got checked by a young CO that walked out from the access. Nice guy. Showed it to him and he said this is for the new season. I had the old one on shore in the car and told him that. He said no problem and mentioned to carry it till the new season starts.  Checked my bucket and we visited a bit. Then he walked about 1/4 mile to the only other person I saw out to check him. So carry the current one  if you buy early.

      better buy your new one on the 24th and carry both so you dont end up in jail...

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.
