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.

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!
