Fish Deep- 40-60 FOW. 5pm-10pm Watch the Flasher to see where there at. Crappies and Walleyes have been anywhere from Bottom to 10 ft off the bottom, but it changes daily. Find some deep structure. Glow in the dark jigs with medium to small crappie minnows are best-- Don't even try fatheads or shiners waste of time and money. Was setting up 3 ft. off the bottom, with luck, until this past weekend, they were there but weren't biting.

Hey thanks for the pointers! Been thinking bout hitting tha sugar water before walleyes close. There is a slot of 5 for crappies though right?

need too add a length min. of 10" on some Wright co.lakes for the crappies,this special reg. has helped the fisheries on many lakes in the state,lets them grow up before they are harvested.

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.
