URL crappie cribs

11 posts in this topic

Have not heard much about the cribs that were put in back years ago. Are they still there and if so are there many fish around them cribs? How deep were they put in. How far out are they?

Think the furthest is about 3.5 miles out from the east side of the lake. I believe they're sitting in 12 - 15 FOW.

Mike412, look at map. You sure talk like URL pro but you must not have the map yet. ;\)

There are 5 clusters of 20 cribs each all in 12 feet of water or deeper spread around the lake. there is a map of them at upperredlakeassn or Lakemaster has them on their map.

Do they consistently hold fish or do they just provide another spot to try?

Thanks for your concerns, Jonny P. I actually have the lakemaster chip plugged into my GPS right now. I could happily give you the name of each crib, and the exact location and depth if you'd like. ;\)

I'm just saying the the North Ditch cluster is roughly 5 miles from the eastern shore and the South Shore Cluster is roughly 7.5 - 8 miles from the eastern shore.

The only time that I have seen crappies caught with any consistency is mid summer, the crappies seem to move off them after the lake freezes over, I have seem many fishermen try to fish them in the winter but have yet to see much if anything caught there. (I am only speaking from my experience here with the south cluster)

Its the same with the northern clusters. Winter time will show some perch, few walleye and a ton of little pike.

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
