I just got a report today from a friend... He and another guy caught their limit of crappies in a 50' hole. There wasn't too much size to them, but there's not much you can do after pulling them up 50 feet!

You got that right Mike. Bigger ones gotta be on one of those steep breaks. I bet 30-25 ft. Still some 10-12's, so say my Wright county contacts. Sounds cool don't it? the wcc. lol. Hey papermouth, thanks for the lift back to the truck.

grin.gif That was my thought.. Maybe try the breaks for a few crappies, and I'd bet you could pull up some walleyes from there too.

      Split ring pliers  .... get them at Wal-Mart in the fishing section by filet knives.  makes it super simple!!   Was using them on small spoon taking off treble hooks for single hooks so I could throw a 2" Gulp minnow on it.   Makes it very easy   Bob

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      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!
