During early ice I caught some out in front of the launch at night. No size to them.

I havent fished crappies in front of the boat ramp this year but i had a camera down the hole yesterday from 3:00pm till dark and i never saw a crappie, but a pile of dinky sunnies. I picked up a couple of nice pike close to sunset with tip-ups and shiners

I was sitting on the edge of a ridge, like 20ft away from me it was about 10ft and i was on about 18-20fow. Missed a ton of bites. Nothing huge, but i could make a decent meal out of some 8inchers if i kept some. Headin out today around 330 if it doesnt get too cold b4 then

Kinda makes me wonder if next years crappie class will be a good one or if the crappies have always been that size there

You hope that they continue to grow so that eventually there will be some crappies out there worth talking about. There seems to be a few lakes down that direction that are loaded with small crappies. Marion, Crystal and another lake that will remain nameless at present since it hasnt been mention on this forum. You just hope that these huge schools of small ones grow up and become decent ones.

during the first week we had the house out on marion around mid december we had a few nights where we pulled up quite a few 10 to 12 inchers that was only for a few days and we never limited out but after that it was dead for us so now we moved to waconia and 2nite the 17th we came back with 15 sunnies all within 9 to 10 and one 10 inch crappie

      Nice gill Rick

      HunterFisher Don't rule out trying that lake again. If theres a lot of wood in the water those schools could, be pinned down on other trees than you were fishing. Trust me I have a lake near Glenwood i fish that has a bunch of tress scattered throughout the lake. It took me numerous times fishing it to figure out patterns on that lake. But once i found them well worth it!  I have found lakes with a lot of submerged trees or wood usally hold some real good panfish, . They have plenty of places to hide from predators and anglers through out the seasons.

      See you tomorrow Jeff we'll dial them in

      Keep checking in here for any updates.  There's a very good chance that the location may change a bit as there have not been a lot of catfish at the methhole area.  Prefishing in the next day or so will help us pin down a location.  I will post any changes here.
    • Borch
      A lake like that with no real hole or structure lends itself to roaming fish.  If there is a defined weededge that will be your structure.  Electronics are not going to show you much until the fish is on your bait.  Drill a lot of holes and move around until you catch fish.

      Hay thanks for your input.... Just got home and got skunked!!!!! But that is ok at least now I know to take it off my list of lakes to fish in the winter, but will be back on it come spring and early summer...

      Caught 17 walleyes on Friday, but all were dinks except for two 15".  Caught 6 more Saturday, all small again except for one 16".  Also caught a 12 inch perch, 3 eelpout, and 2 tulibee. Considering the snowstorm prediction for Sunday, I pulled my house off the lake and parked it back in the garage for the season.  LOW next week, then onto lakers the following weekend.
    • JerkinLips
      I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday. I think that the 4 I caught this winter were tulibees, including this one yesterday.
