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 scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
