Has anyone been catching any crappies, or good size sunfish?

I don't know - I will let you know on Monday.

I plan to be running down some fish this weekend in the cold. That's the plan anyway!

Where are the spots for Crappies on Pelican. I have asked this before on here, but I still cannot catch one. I fish for walleyes and bass all summer for 5 years now and have yet to catch a Crappie. I will be bringing 40 some people up to Breezy Point in Late Feb, where could I get into the fish on the West side through the ice.

I just need to know structure and depth, I can find the spots from there.

right out in front of the resort in the small bay there is a good crappie hole by the sand bar going to the big lake

I have caught them in 17-24 fow in weeds, and transitions from weeds to sand bars or muck.

They havent been in the bay much this year. It varies year to year. Generally they bite at nite with glow jigs, but they havent done much this year. Moose bay has some occassionally in the 12 ' hole. Sometimes you can get them near weavers point, but its hit and miss, you have to stumble on them when your fishin for wallys.

Thanks a lot, I will have to try some of those spots. I have never even seen them on the aqua view, but supposedly there are some pretty good size ones in the lake.

Yea there are some good sized ones in Pelican. Last year we could catch 6-8 of them and a couple eyes in our 20' walleye hole. I think i have only caught one this year though. I fish by goosberry island off the knoxies landing. Let us know if anyone finds them!!!

      I had a battery op Repala a few years ago and sold it to someone else at our campground. Didn't like the way they just zipped through without following the fillets and lost a lot of meat. Really suk's on a partly frozen fish!   Mine came with a case.
