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.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
