Report 1/31-2/3-finally a crapppie report!

3 posts in this topic

Got to Red at 6:30 on Thursday evening and stopped at westwind for some Minnows-asked about the "Bug" hatch-got a funny look and reply "Don't get on the computer much-don't know what everyone is talking about". I felt stupid so I bought some jigs and got rolling! Went out of Agazzis road-got out 5-6 miles and realized the drifting was bad-we heard of people getting stuck so looked at the handheld GPS-found a small hook in the structure and pulled off the road-went as far as I could before all 4 were spinning-dropped the house-left it there til Sunday!

We found fishing good but in waves of action-three of us caught about 35 Walleyes,9 Crappies,2 Perch and 2 Pike. All colors caught fish(red glow,glow,gold,silver) If they were hungry they ate the lure-diiferent sized jigs-we didn't really find one jig working better-Rattle Wheels were just as good as Jigging. I hope this sparks everyones "fishing mojo" for URL-this lake still is awesome-still has Crappies and Walleyes are plentiful.

I love hearing the good Crappie Reports. I am going up this weekend and would love to hook into some of those slabs. Were the crappies coming in high or right off of the bottom? The few crappie reports I have seen have said they came off of the bottom. It seems in past years they have came into the vex about 3 feet off of the bottom. Is the bite changing? Are the crappies staying low to avoid the PIKE? Thanks for the good crappie report.

If memory serves me right-most came in high on the Vexilar. Maybe one or two straight from the bottom. About 3 feet off with both set line and jig w/minnow head-again size of jig didn't seem to matter.I hope this weekend works out for the bite-should get better and better as we approach Spring. Give us a report when your back. I will e-mail you with the colors that seemed to work better-also the way we hooked the minnow heads seemed to make a difference.

      Sounds pretty slow, I was up and out of Zipple Bay on Monday and Tuesday in about 26 ft. of water and did OK. Good mix of nice sauger and walleye. I think they closed the road to trucks and just letting atvs out now. Good luck on the river.

      We got ours from springsteel, they had some at the bait store in warroad. Couldn't find ciscos, warroad had smelt though.

      Arrived at Morris pt. Fri. afternoon fished a spot I did well on earlier in the year in 18 ft. Ended up catching 10 walleye of which 8 were under 12 inches. The 2 keepers were 16 inches each. That was between 4 pm and 7 pm Used the snowmobile there was enough slush to keep the slides cool. Sat. morning went deeper because of a report I heard. Caught 1 small walleye moved several times between 29 ft and 20 ft. At 1 pm went back to my spot in 18 ft banged 3 more walleyes 2 15 inchers and a 12 incher. then nothing .Off the lake by 2pm had work to do. Wished I would of started there but that's fishing.Talked to 3 guy's in the cleaning house that road there wheelers to Bridges they had there limits plus 3 huge perch and a few tullies. On a side note coming home today saw numerous boats both coming and going. Time to jump on board and hit the river..
