The crappies are keeper size.Not huge but big enough to eat.

I was behind the filtration plant this past sunday, 17 FOW, jig at 15 1/2, watched the MarCum have red come up it, sit for a minute or two, then go back down. Same thing happened last weekend out there. Last weekend used Berkely Gulp! maggots, then no bites, switched to real waxies- no bites. This past sunday, used minnows- no bites. Will be out there this friday, look for a FishTrap Scout and a green Mazda if you wanna come shoot the bull.

So, you pulled the trigger on the Frabill? How do you like it so far?

Fox has a great crappie bite.You can get your limit.Last saturday night between 8-8:45pm my daughters b/f and his buddies caught 30 of them and a couple 16 inch wallys.Love the new house,but had to buy a new heater.My mr heater sunflower bakes you out even with the vent open and a window open.Went with a big buddy heater that will go down to 4,000 btu`s.Will be going back to fox on friday afternoon.Been seeing wallys on the cam and catching a few small ones there.What time you going out on friday? I have friday off so if your out there in the morning I`ll drive out and chat with you guys.Sounds like a BT crappie.

Friday was too busy- haircut, picking up kids, running errands, etc. Was going to go out this morning, but the wind was too crazy. Its gonna be cold sunday (tomorrow) but if winds not bad, I'll go out.

      Anyfish2 - thanks for the reports. I believe it was you who had written a little summary that included a rough estimation of when the LF river busts open and muddies the Rainy.    Can you (or anyone) comment on when that's looking likely to happen? anyone know when the river cleared the Frontier landing? I think you said that happening gives a 1-to-2 week notice on the LF breakup.

      recommendation for first timers to northern Minnesota?  we need decent lodging, boat or sitontop kayak, smallmouth is our favorite but we will fish for anything that will bite artificial.  thanks in advance for any help.

      My Alaska trip fell through, so I'm thinking having never been to Minnesota that should be my destination. thinking a week in august. Probably start International Falls or Duluth. We need a resort with sit on top kayaks or aluminum boats, comfortable lodging without being plush and not ripping our heads off pricewise.  We will target Smallmouth, but if it will hit a lure I will fish for it. any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

      Went out of Stoney Point sunday morning.  FYI Watch for deer almost smoked a few on the 20 mph section coming back into the access!  There is an ice heave forming off of the rocks going straight north.  If you want to fish Paris Trench people were crossing instantly using boards.  We weren't gutsy/brave/stupid enough to cross there since we were pulling a trailer behind a four wheeler and had 3 of us with all our gear.  The ice was sketchy from access to point at the point the ice heave goes a little further away from shore and it allows you some room to avoid the point's tip.  There is open water immediately around the point tip but ice looks great if you follow the tracks and avoid huging the tip.  We couldn't find a place to cross the ice heave to get to Paris Trench so we were going to try a few spots further north since we could see a few groups set up north a ways.  About 5.5 miles north of the access the ice heave quits and you can cross it without any worries.  Since we could cross the GPS spot we wanted to fish was only 2.5 miles away and we fished there.  Out in the middle we had 26-28" of ice and barely made it through.  While fishing a plane landed on the lake and a 1/2 ton extended cab pickup came from the NE some where, it was too foggy misty to see where and we didn't see him leave.  Coming back from Stoney Point's Tip to the access was very sketchy.  Made me nervous since there was a lot of slush and water but ice held us up.  If you plan on going out next weekend you may need to find a different access, or atleast I would!  Talked to a guy who came in behind us, they crossed the ice heave at the access using boards how they did and they said it was very slow and only got two.
