Crappies

7 posts in this topic

Well I was able to meet up with Fisherdog today for a little walleye, crappie and bluegill action. We struck out on the walleyes, though Peter got a few crappie early.

We then headed to another area lake for some bluegill and crappie action. I was able to pick up 5 crappies nearly immediately. Peter came on later as he picked up some gills and crappies.

He's probably still out there. I had some heater issues and my flasher battery was feeling the effects of the cold.

It was nice meeting you Peter. I look forward to meeting up again in the future.

Was the lake flooding at all from the snow? The big buddy was having problems again huh?

Nick, there was plenty of slush out there for sure.

I ended up returning the Big Buddy today for a different one. If it happens again, I will be going back to the Cooker heater. mad.gif

I think you just got a faulty one is all. My brother has one and it works good for him.

You must not have been out for long today, was that the only lake you tried?

I was also able to get out for a little bit tonight and managed to bring home a meal of crappies. I also got to witness some girl catch two walleyes over 8 pounds, that was nice to see grin.gif

Nice fishing with you as well, we'll get together again. Ended up with 11 crappies and about 60 bluegills in which I kept 7. House next to us got a 26" 7-8lb eye at dusk.

      Just wondering why no more fishing reports/updates from lake of the woods tourism on this site? They still put one on LSF every week or so. On a side note was up to the lake last weekend for some maintenance to the cabin went for a walk down graceton beach toward zipple. Lots of debris on shore from melting ice. Picked up what we could, lots left.

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
