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!

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.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      I will be out on Blue on Saturday morning. ... see you out there

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.
