We were just up to Mille Lacs last weekend and did real well on some of the smaller lakes around the area. You could serch for months on Mille Lacs for Crappies. The smaller lakes have real nice Crappies and are alot easier to locate.

Isle bay will hold some crappies and the area around malone island is good. in front of Scenic bay resort in march is the traditional hot spot all the guys will be there, leaving the perch for the rest of us!

The crappie bite on mille lacs can be hard to come by... I usually spend a full day just to catch 10...

Thanks for the Info, i've been out there trying to catch some eyes and not much really very slow. i'll have to try some of the lakes around there for some crappies. I live on upper south long and catching some but not a lot. Plan on going to LOW in two weeks and the end of march should be a good time the bite is always good up there in march.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
