Hey guys,

coming up the second week of june. going to keep the kids busy with some daytime pannies. love to get into perch, gills, but what's the story with cass on crappies? generally in mid-june, have they left for deeper water already, should we look to kitchi? our previous lake, we would catch crappie in a portage lake in 35+ fow. as always, i appreciate the feedback.

Windy, the cubbies will be stout this year too. should be an interesting year in chi-town.

Many times there will still be some late spawning crappie still hanging in the shallows or just off the edge. Kitchi is a great lake to look for them in. I don't fish it much for crappie but know a lot of folks that do quite well. On Cass the SW corner and Allen's Bay are your best bet. Andrusia is great for crappie too. Near Joes Lodge and the bay on the North end of the lake.

Good luck

Buck Lake is awesome for big Sunfish and rockbass.Also if your lucky fish the docks on the south side of Buck you'll find a few crappies but look out for the owners of the docks,they think they own the lake.the docks also hold the big 10" sunfish.Just my 2 bits.Good luck.

I think I said this on another post, if your catching and know where to go for 10" gills on a certain lake why would you post it on a fishing forum?

Just my two cents worth!

You can get into Buck lake via the channel that connects to Cass. You shouldn't have any problems getting through that time of year. Just trim up the outboard and take it slow.

The only access that I know of on Lost lake is the right-of-way access off of mission road. Might be a little tough getting a boat in there.

indycubs,

You will love Lost lake...it is one of my favorites!! I will fill you in on it in private as I don't care to destroy that small lake talking about it here.

Brian,

Make a mental note to tell me about Lost as well. Deb is staying at Horseshoe this year and I plan on maybe renting a boat from Clark for a day to hit Lost. He has that $40 special for 8 hours including the gas and you know what big spenders us boys from the Windy are!!! Hope all is going well down on the farm! Hope the little one is doing well in school.

Windy

      Thanks Cliff. It looks like I'll bring tall boots, ice crampons, and snowshoes for my walk across the lake on Friday! Who knows what I'll encounter

      I fished north of Two Harbors on Sunday and it was a mess.  The plowed areas had a good 4-5" of standing water, the rest was slop and slush about 1/2 way up to my knee. There was plenty of ice, and there were 4-5 pickups out there, but I scouted it out with the ATV and elected to walk to my spot rather than risk getting stuck in the muck.  This was of course before the rain Monday, so I can only imagine what it's like now.

      Del,   You know what they say about opinions and a certain part of the anatomy don't you. That said, you've made your point but it's now time that you step out for some fresh air and give this rant of yours a break.     Good luck to the Landing's new owners. Restaurants are a tough gig anywhere and I sincerely wish you the best and hope you'll succeed.   John

      Although down riggers aren't required, they sure are nice.  I'very really become a fan of copper lately.  The newer stuff is easier to work with and has caught more fish for me over lead core over on Lake Michigan.      I agree that unless you're using the suffix lead core the 47s don't leave a lot if room for backing.  Definitely use braid for backing.  I like to splice 20 ft of 30 lb mono between the core and backing to clip boards to.   I do the drag upgrades too.  When you get the diameter down the drags aren't as forgiving.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff
