"I'm coming Elizabeth!!"

13 posts in this topic

Ok, many of you might not bet the Sanford and son reference, but I'm wondering if the crappies are still biting on Elizabeth. I'm planning on goin out this weekend and wondering if there is any reports.

I was thinking the same thing. Anybody getting fish out there? Have not fished around here in awhile. Fished LOW earlier in the week out of Randalls. Not too bad, but would like to fish closer to home. A lot of houses out there a month ago when I went out on Ella.

Heard the bites are still far and few between, but if you move around a bit you should find some fish.

Its going to be a cold weekend, good luck!

Went out Friday and the bite was good from 4-6, then slowed way down, not alot of size though. ella should be starting up here pretty soon for a short run.

I enjoy the comments and posts about Elizabeth and Ella...I grew up fishing mainly these two lakes in the winter with my dad, his friends and my grandpa. We had a good run of about 5 years when we would do very well with the crappies on both lakes, but then they just died (this would have been around the early 90's I suppose). Good to hear they are being fished again!

Crappies were small, but I think they are being C&R fairly well in these lakes. Ella is on and off as you probably remember but they're still alive and well, I'll keep you posted Thunder!

Awesome, thanks! I'll be sure to check back to see what's happening.

Does anyone fish Lake Carrie anymore? That was another one we'd hit now and then.

      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.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
