You don't have to go far there is nice crappies in both Little and Big Pine. We also have a cabin on Litte Pine, and will be up there fishing this weekend.

I've never fished Little Pine on the ice, but I've caught some decent crappies on the open water so I'd imagine they're in there. My mom has a place on the North side and one of these winters I'm going to hit the ice!

I to have a small cabin on Little Pine and have never fished it in the winter. Have never even driven by the lake from November to March for that matter. We mainly spend the early and late seasons fishing from our dock for walleyes, but over the last couple of years we have gotten 4 nice crappies ranging from 13-15 inches. Kind of crazy. Does the lake get hit pretty hard in the winter?

No,Big Pine gets fished a lot harder. You will not see the big towns like you do on other lakes which is nice.

The crappies were a total shock to us. We pretty much always use shiners and that is what we got them on. Where abouts do any of you guys have your places?

Yes it is. We are also on Benny Lane. Fishing this weekend was ok. We did pick up a couple of crappies, a lot of perch, and a few walleyes. Where on Benny Lane are your cabins? Ours is on the south end close to where it dead ends. If any of you know who Benny was our cabin is right next to where he lived.

My place is in the middle of you guys. Old fire number was like 106 or something. Not sure what it is now. My family actually has 3 places all right next to each other. One little cabin, a nice log home and then a house next to that.

Hossienda, we're old #102 so we're just down from you. We're right next to the place that burned down 3-4 (or it could have been longer, time flies) years ago that still has the huge garage standing.

Jw, I know where you are talking. It is my little cabin, Trossen(place with the sailboat) then Pauly's where it burned. Stop by for a beer this spring if you are up for the opener or putting the dock in.

Sounds good, I'm usually up there with 1 or more of my kids for opener. You usually have quite a group up there as well. \:\)

wplatehunter - how was the ice on LP? More specifically, how's the driving condition of it? I've got a day off this week for fishing and I may come up for the day. I don't have a sled or wheeler, and I don't necessarily want to hoof it. Any help is appreciated.

The ice is good. I was driving my full size truck on both little and big pine with no problems. The only thing I saw on little was a pressure ridge, but we were able to get around it. The snow close to shore was deep, so I would not drive to close to shore. You will be able to see where people were driving. Good luck fishing. We might come up next weekend. If you are going for walleyes just a heads up they stopped biting shortly after it got dark.

Thanks for the report. I won't be able to make it up there tomorrow, but hopefully before the end of the season in a few weeks. I'll be up at my other up north haunt this upcoming weekend.

      7/19 Day 5   Day 5 was spent celebrating my Isaacs 11th birthday!  Lots of cake and catering to him.  The exciting typical swimmimg and paddling ruled the day.  Grandma and grandpa DeZurik came up to celebrate his birthday as well.  Always nice to get both sets of grandparents together at the same time.   Fishing continued slow even more.  Still a successful night though. The birthday boy conceded his seat in the boat so grandma and grandpa cpuld join me for the evening fish trip.  My folks in all truth haven't been fishing for 2 years or more.  It was just nice to get them in the boat.   I struggled as the acting to put them on a consistent bite.  Mom as able to scratch out the biggest walleye at 17".  Dad brought home the honors of most fish caught landing a 14" and 15" walleye, 8.5" bluegill, and 2 perch as big aa his leech! I mustered up 1 small pumpkinseed.

      no doubt aboit the hooks, they are lottle stickers.

      I like drifting with them and snap jigging them with a controlled fall...Almost every time you'll feel that tick just as it's hitting bottom... Last time I was on mille lacs that's all I could get them to go on. As far as colors I'd just match the forage Tullies in the lake use blue,purples,silvers....Perch use perch colors.. I think the jiggin rap is my new favorite way to fish, but it gets scary with them little hooks when you got a big eye on lol.

      Fished Big Sandy from 8-2 today and got 10 eyes (no keepers) keeper crappie and perch.... Marked tons of fish, but it was tough to get them to go, Lindy rig with a half crawler was the best by far. I tried leeches,jigging rap, jig n plastic. Points and reefs were the spots, later in the day a lot of fish were off the edges of the reefs... Just one day this year I'd like a happy medium weather wise, either I'm in 4ft rollers or 90 degrees with zero wind haha.

      According to Al Linder you can do it all with them...on his video that I watched a while back he was in deeper water throwing into 15 feet and working it back to the boat.  I have not tried it yet but will have to sometime this year.  Sand or gravel bottom would be the best.

      Just started playing with these this week as a friend has been have goos luck all summer with them on the Cass lake chain. I have not any success yet but not real sure on the best way to use them with my set this week.  My friend searches pods of fish out with electronics then spot locks and vertical jigs. I have no electronics or spot lock so I have been control drifting and jigging.   My questions...   Is there a depth they work better in, shallow vs. deeper?   Better vertically jigged vs trolled vs casted and jigged?   prime colors? of course my be lake dependent.   typically, aggressive jigging vs subtle jigging?   Thanks for tips
    • Perchy
      Yes, insured. I will ask the adjuster, thanks.
    • Captain Acorn
      Thanks cliff and lb I have actually had better luck with the puppet minnows from northland but I have mainly jigged them vertically definently is a fun way to fish 
    • LBerquist
      I've been trolling at about .5mph while using a jigging rap. This way one guy can still drag a lindy. I keep the front hook intact but my boat has contributed about half a dozen to the lake so far this summer. Im still working on getting the hang of it. If I know I'm in a rough area I will attempt to keep the jig from hitting bottom which still seems to be effective. I did pick up a couple off brands that don't have a front hook that I want to try. This is just what I have been toying around with, I'm definitely not an expert at it.

      Hi Everyone, a couple of questions, I know there is free public boat ramp in Stillwater just above the lift bridge. Is there another public boat ramp further down river? I thought I read somewhere that Beanies is or was becoming a free public boat launch. Is that the case? Also, I am thinking of heading there on Monday to try my luck. Any tactics/depths/areas that have been producing for anyone?
