Well the crappies have finally took off in my neck of the woods, in the last week or two we finally have run into good crappie bites on a few lakes. We've been staying away from the crowds and seem to find active fish every time we go out. All we do is find the deeper water(20 feet or so) next to some shallow structure(12-14 feet or so) and the bite is kicking in good compared to earlier in the year.

The fishing has been really good for the crappies and the walleyes picked up during the warm weather. I'm sure I won't be out again till the weekend but the crappie bite has been HOT.

Crappies picked up the other night. The bite was late, but still pretty good. They were pretty small but still fun.

Yes, definitely a mixed bag though, The average is 11-12" with an occasional 13" and some smaller 8-10 inchers thrown in.

Anyone care to fill me in on which lake you are fishing? If you don't want to say on here maybe email me?

Any info would be appreciated, and I don't have anyone to spill your secrets to, after all i am just a college kid looking to get some fish for the pan.

      I'm only 8-10 miles south of smurfy with the same experience on the lake. Mn Fishing Pros is a group of 4 guys who guide in the area & so is Jeff Sundin. Not sure what any of them have for experience on that lake but you might try to contact 1 of them to see if they have a opening that fits your time slot or they might even have some info on the lake that they are willing to share

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.
