Crappies

Question

ivegottabite

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.

      Hi all. I'm a newbie. And Iowan, but I love everything Minnesota. Ice Fishing is a short season here. I'm down by cedar rapids. Girlfriend and I are going to faribault this weekend to try some lakes. Any tips would be appreciated. I honestly don't keep many walleye back here, we imposed our own 17 in to 24 in all we keep standard. And it's helping the River in our area. At Least we think so.  Anyway, we're just looking for some good walleye and Pike action any bonus panfish too. If you could give us some legit pointers . That would make an awesome trip. Thanks again. Tight lines God too many beers . We only keep 17 to 24 inch eyes

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.

      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.
