Silver Lake Crappies

2 posts in this topic

Have been going to Silver Lake a few times lately, and having decent luck. The best spot so far has been under the 7th street bridge; it seems like they are using the bridge supports as current breaks. Any small lures with some action such as paddletails, mini-mites, roostertails, cicadas, tubes, beetle spins, and tiny crankbaits have been working. Sonetimes with, but usually without a bobber. Tipping the lures with a small piece of worm or berkley gulp has helped. They are VERY light biting. I usually get about a dozen in an hour or so; they average about 8" with some up to 11". I've been catching a couple small sunnies and largemouths each time, too. Nothing too big but still fun. grin.gif

Tuesday I was catching Crappies and Sunfish below the Dam on pink/white mini-mite below a bobber (no meat). Someone was fishing for carp and landed a couple of those also.

      Was on Skogman last night. Could not get anything of size to bite. 3 " sunnies and 6" crappies this time. The vex was lit up most of the time with lookers.  Last year did Ok with bigger crappies and sunnies. Middle of the week - not to much activity - nice weather- was hoping for better results. Oh well - that's fishing. Good Luck

      You're running up against a political position here, not a logical one. I'm struggling to remember if it was Pawlenty or Ventura but one of them started to swing things heavily towards "fees" because they could argue that they weren't new taxes. I think that mentality has permeated through many layers of government by now, so I'm not surprised to hear someone from the DNR state that fishing license fees aren't taxes.   It doesn't really matter, we are paying to use something that requires money to stock and manage. Whatever it's called, it will never be free unless fishing pressure drastically decreases.

      Spent a few hours on Skogman yesterday. (3:00 to 6:30)  Most of the time the vexlar was so lit up that you couldn't see the lure. Bad news is that they were very small sunnies and crappies. Fished in the area of the cluster of ice houses in  24  ft water. No fish kept this time out. Good ice but getting a little sloppy.

      Another Spring-like day on Thursday. I got skunked but my buddy landed a couple of nice ones. C & R.

      Very true! Cenaiko Lake had at least 100 houses on it at 7 in the morning on Saturday and it is only a 28 acres. It is absolutely packed with fish though.
