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.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!

      Trout fishing thru the ice is a blast!!!   Their hits are usually aggressive like that, makes it exciting. They put up a pretty good fight too.
