Hey Slabbing,

Crappies on the US side are tough in the winter. Targeting numbers of fish is pretty uncommon. Spring, Summer and Fall are a different story. If you still decide this is your mission I'd work the Sand Bay area as they are there, but finding concentrations this time of year is difficult.

Thanks rainydaze I bet sand bay is fish soup at the time of the year from looking at the map. Must get some big female eye's moving thru there to.

HI SLABBING,

RAINYDAZE IS EXACTLY RIGHT, IF YOUR LOOKING TO ONLY CATCH CRAPPIES...GOOD LUCK...IT WON'T HAPPEN, CRAPPIES IN RAINY LAKE...U.S. SIDE HAVE MUCH DIFFERENT HAUNTS THEN IN THE SUMMER, FALL & SPRING. WALLEYE FISHING HOWEVER IN MARCH & APRIL CAN BE AWESOME.

SINCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

Agreed with Meister and Daze. By chance you might get into a few slabs, but if you are specifically targeting crappie you'll probably want to go across the border to our neighbors from the north.

      Last year I went to the show to buy and thought Reed's would be the best and they came through again. I bought a Helix 10 from them and I got a free mapping chip. Below the price everyone else had at the show or outside the show. Also got a cheaper price on a new MinnKota that integrates with the Helix 10. When all the smoke cleared, I had everything in about 10 days.

      Is the access on 22 still open at least?  I was hoping to get the boat out and chase a few cats Sunday, maybe it won't be an option?

      I've been scouting public land like crazy to find some spots for upcoming archery and the spring turkey season and haven't found a shed yet. I even ventured into a sure bedding area hoping I'd see one in there and no dice.    It shouldn't be too much longer.

      No one else getting concerned with the Wild's lack of intensity??? darn good when they want to be and awful mediocre when not buzzing....... Been a long time since I watched them play 3 full periods of real hockey.....
