Day bite crappies

6 posts in this topic

I was fishing a Cambridge area lake this afternoon and got into a bunch of crappies in the middle of the day.The sun was clouded over when the bite was on,but when the sun finally came out the bite ended quickly.Did anyone else have this happen to them?

I often get crappies during the day. Its just a matter of finding where they "day". You probably were set up in an area where they were moving from one area to another and caught a few on their daily migration.

Sounds right. Crappies will bite sometimes during the day, but you've got a better shot if it's cloudy. It seems that when the sun comes out the bite shuts off. But it will also return if it clouds up again.

We got into a ton of crappies at the prior get together. I might be wrong, but I think it was cloudy in the afternoon when we were catchin' them.

On Green the other day I caught a bunch of crappies when the sun was out, bright and sunny. I missed a really nice one too... Had it up to the top of the hole, was reaching down to scoop it out (because it was too heavy to lift out with just the rod) and the hook came out. I tried to quick get my hand under it and grab it out but it flopped around and got back down the hole. Yeah so I guess it's only a fish story now, but it was probably at least a 13" fish (or more?) \:\/cry.gif

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
