Spider Lake in Nevis

6 posts in this topic

Has anyone or anyone you know fished Spider Lake this past year?

I over heard a couple guys at the Iron horse bar in Nevis saying that it's starting to turn in to a pretty good Crappie lake.

Where would be a good spot to get on the ice this winter?

Thanks

Lunker Guy-

My parents have a place on Spider Lake. There are quite a few crappies but there is a 10 inch minnimum on the lake. As you can imagine there are a lot of fish that measure 9 3/4. Having said that the fishing for them can be a lot of fun. The ice on the lake can be tricky with a lot of slush and water on the ice. I know of some good spots and will share them by e-mail if you'd like at dan_stith@yahoo.com.

Lunkerguy I think that you should stop sitting around on your computer all day long thinking about fishing this lake. Go out and do it!!!

I'm not sure, but I think there is a minimum length limit on the crappies on Spider lake too. I'm not totally sure but it would be worth looking into, if you give it a try.

Last time I was on Spider, all I caught were crappies, but most were under the minimum size limit. It didn't matter what I put out there. I used minnows, waxworms, Gulp, leeches, crawlers and plain jigs. Tons of crappies.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
