Thanks for the lesson Crappie Master!

17 posts in this topic

Trouble and I spent most of the day Sunday chasing down crappies. We started in 18'-20' of water marking huge numbers of fish. We tricked a few into an elevator ride to the ice house, but for the most part we may have gotten set up towards the end of the bite (5:45am). Around 7am we decided to head to the permanant for our 45 min's of fame only to realize the pattern changed again. Time to move the house again, right. Off we went drilling and searching. Set the house up and decided to run some dead sticks and have some fresh fish. Awsome only problem was that pattern had changed as well. At this point in the day we added another budy to the goup and decided to run another tank of gas threw the 224. Long story short we made swiss cheese out of the ice in numerouse spots from 11'-35' and came up short. We didn't give up, we decided what the heck lets seek advice from the pro's. We moved the house again, found the fish in an area 30' in diameter and when the camera was down at times there were 40+ fish on the screen with an average size of 11". Let me tell you if it wasn't for this 9 1/2 year old we could have gone hungry. Thanks for the fishing lesson! and your welcome in our house anytime.

What can i say, she's my good luck charm. I had my 5 year old out with us also to give us some lessons, but she decided to find a slush covered ice hole. In she went all the way up above one knee. And before you say it T.O., yes she is just like me and her sister. Falling in, stepping in an ice hole. It only happens to the best of us. Good thing mom was out running errends or Iceman and Trouble might not have got the lesson they did. I'm glad i've been blessed with kids that love the outdoors. Hopefully they will carry on the traditions of the outdoors when they are older.

Thanks again to trouble and iceman for letting us in your house and for posting her picture, the teacher got on the website today and showed the whole class. She was stoked!!! And the cool thing is, she got out of school today and asked me if we were going fishing today. Devoted but i had to tell her no. To cold for the old man.

      I belive you need to pick up permit day before you enter when getting a motor day use permit that's how it works on snowbank

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.
