Lobster Crappies

4 posts in this topic

I have done well here for crappies after ice out, but was wondering if anyone had any tips on where the crappies hang out during the later ice stages.

Most of the small shallow bays will have late ice crappies and gills in them. But the water is extemely low this year and they may not move into some of the bays until ice out.

The flat off of 114, (east end when access was open and there was a shantytown there,) used to be a popular late ice spot for crappies and sunnies. Unfortunately for reasons unknown to me, the old access has boulders on it stopping traffic. It's not a bad walk with a portable. Brent

They closed that access because there wasn't much room for parking, so people were parking on the highway. With the Interstate on and off ramp there it was causing traffic problems.

      Went up north today with @eyeguy 54 and we found plenty of ice if the access would have been better we would have driven out. We fished hard as both of us have similar fishing styles. We jump hole to hole picking off the aggressive fish with plastics. The wind did not do us any favors but we still caught a good number of fish. If eyeguy took photos maybe he will post em. Thank you eyeguy for the call I wanted to get out fishing today.

      Went to a small lake up around Mille lacs lake and found 20-28 inches of ice. The access looked like some busted it up, so eyeguy and I walked out. We caught bluegills and crappies on plastics. It was windy and cold but we got a few nice ones.
