Hey Guys

1 post in this topic

I have been on Big Birch out near melrose several times and I have caught nothing. Mainly because I have not been very mobile. I am thinking about heading up there soon and I was wondering where one could go and catch something. Was in the area once last year and caught one stinking bullhead lol. I am looking for a good perch/crappie bite with maybe a walter mixed in. What kind of structure should I look for this time of year? What lures? I am a walker this year as I don't have an atv and I am not going out in a truck for a while yet. Any info would be greatly appreciated. I believe you can email me on here if you want to keep any tips private. Thank you again and good luck to the rest of you. Someone has to be catching something.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
