Crappie Highway

12 posts in this topic

A week or so ago, you guys opened up the "Crappie Highway" at the 6.5 mile mark. How has it been? Are they seeing any action on it? Has it lead to the "promised land"?

There are now 2 roads angling NW. One at 5.3 miles where the pressure ridge is going to form and the other at 6.5. So far nothing great, just a trickle of crappies but our hopes are high. cool.gif

Are there a lot of people out there? Is the fishing day to day or is it pretty consitent? Thanks Kelly

Not a lot of people, no crowds. Everybody has been spreading out real good. Fishing has been day to day.

I would say that they are pretty much the ones who came up with the whole crappie highway idea, so I would guess yes!

We run 4 plows so we go pretty much where ever we want and are constantly moving.

      Well never made it to Monticello but did make it to the rum 2 smallies one 17inch and one 14 inch One on float and fly black and blue jig other on a white berkley gulp jerk shad.   And you can target walleyes and smallies every winter with a long rod you just need to know where to go

      Hi all new to the forum, only have 2 days left for fishing the elusive eyes.  Any input on depths and lakes to go on in the Detroit Lakes area would be great

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps
