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.

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.
