Chisago crappies

4 posts in this topic

I was out on Sat. Alot of bluegills early. The Crappies hit after dark, but they were about the size of potato chips. Are there any bigger ones in there or is this how they run?

There are a few larger fish in the lake..However, Chisago gets hit hard... very hard...Not many fish survive to be bigger sizes. Its a good numbers lake, but not the best lake for keepers.. Yet, as I said, they can be caught.( and it also depends on what your definition of Keeper is)

Yes, not too many big crappies in Chisago.. If you want size, I would look else where for them.

10" a keeper. Several times we have pulled 20 plus fish afternoons on Chisago.

Crappies tend to run in rather large schools.

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.

        So, this Deer runs through the forest all winter without breaking it's neck on anything. Then breaks it's neck by your deck that just happens to have a bird feeder and lots of really big rocks by it? Did the Warden buy it?   Oh yeah nice fish haul.

      I always thought after shooting them from my deck, it couldn't get any easier; guess I was wrong. Lol! Backstraps never tasted sweeter. Hope you bought a lottery ticket.

      Information I have indicates the operator stopped his machine on the marked trail, in a section marked 'Thin Ice'. That is when the machine went through.
