Crappie Bite?

Recommended Posts

bbird5310

Hey All, I will be coming up on the first weekend of Jan. Wondering how the cappie bite has been so far?. Was up last year and caught all the waldos we wanted, but walleyes out numbered crappies about 10 to 1. so far sounds like about the same this year...Going up with club red again, in search of the sneaky seals!!!

wanger,

Were staying with club red this year. Been free lancing it by ourselves the last 8 or 9 years, but decided to go with a sleeper from one of the locals this year. Just kind of wondering what to expect. House conditions, fish activity, etc... any info would be great. Pat seemed like a good guy when I talked to him on the phone, but info from previous clients is always reassuring.. Thanks...

You will be well taken care of by Pat......I have never used his houses but we have ran into him on the ice and he seems to check on his clients often and keep them happy.

Yeah I'd recommend Club Red. Stayed outta there in March & we're going back in Jan.(if that says anything?). We rented 2 shacks at that time. Shacks were spacious & comfortable, did real well fishing wise too! Good luck when you go up!

I went up twice last year and used Pat's houses. He was great. Crappie were hard to come by. Just depends on if you are willing to move around during the day..Walleyes are everywhere there. Mostly bigger than 17". He let us movew to his smaller shacks to try ro find some crappies, and we did. I live in the south subburbs...and hiting the local lakes this weekend!!! see ya In JAN

Just had a question for anyone that has fished crappie on URL in the last year. Is there any other size crappie in the lake besides 15"-16", is a smaller class year coming up or is it just the big ones left. Thanks

Yes we do have a smaller year class coming in. Several fish where caught in 8-10 range. This may not be as strong of a year class as the last boom but they are present.

      Nice gill Rick

      HunterFisher Don't rule out trying that lake again. If theres a lot of wood in the water those schools could, be pinned down on other trees than you were fishing. Trust me I have a lake near Glenwood i fish that has a bunch of tress scattered throughout the lake. It took me numerous times fishing it to figure out patterns on that lake. But once i found them well worth it!  I have found lakes with a lot of submerged trees or wood usally hold some real good panfish, . They have plenty of places to hide from predators and anglers through out the seasons.

      See you tomorrow Jeff we'll dial them in

      Keep checking in here for any updates.  There's a very good chance that the location may change a bit as there have not been a lot of catfish at the methhole area.  Prefishing in the next day or so will help us pin down a location.  I will post any changes here.
    • Borch
      A lake like that with no real hole or structure lends itself to roaming fish.  If there is a defined weededge that will be your structure.  Electronics are not going to show you much until the fish is on your bait.  Drill a lot of holes and move around until you catch fish.

      Hay thanks for your input.... Just got home and got skunked!!!!! But that is ok at least now I know to take it off my list of lakes to fish in the winter, but will be back on it come spring and early summer...

      Caught 17 walleyes on Friday, but all were dinks except for two 15".  Caught 6 more Saturday, all small again except for one 16".  Also caught a 12 inch perch, 3 eelpout, and 2 tulibee. Considering the snowstorm prediction for Sunday, I pulled my house off the lake and parked it back in the garage for the season.  LOW next week, then onto lakers the following weekend.

      I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday. I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday.
