Would it be wise to make the drive from Utica to check here for some crappies this weekend or stop at Chester. I could try everywhere I can think of. What would be the best bet. I don't have much experience on Zumbro and have never been to Chester.

You may have to go down the lake aways yet to find the crappies, but they are most definately on their way up there. If you chester would be a good bet, but I've never found the crappies during the day so someone else would have to help you there. Might want to consider Silver Creek too as far as crappies go.

The crappie bite on Willow Creek has been surprisingly good the past month or so.

I have been there a couple times, no crappies though. I guess I just want to catch fish. Sunnies, Crappies, Perch they're all fun. Thanks for the responses.

      Nailed the Crappies last night in 2-3 feet of water!!   They were all 9-10" and skinny runts for the length.   All were catch n release and topped off with a 18 64/65th " bass at dark!!  it was as close as 19" you could go with out being 19" LOL   What a rush on 4 pound test

      Leech, we're getting out feet wet then we can post within topics. Glem,  What will help you are trolling boards and rod holders.  I use a mast and main line board system but Inline boards work and a lot of guys use them and something for you to consider. Some stick baits to consider are Bombers, Brads, X Raps, Husky Jerks.  Spoons- Jim's Flashbacks, Moonshine.  Patterns/Colors- Pink, Purple, Monkey Puke, 57 Chevy, Pink Lemonade, Water Melon are just a few.  Superior is color specific like no other body of water so it pays to have a variety. Speed can also be critical in getting a strike and then you have to think about was it the rise or fall within the column that was responsible.   Last year you'd catch me at 3mph pulling sticks which isn't the norm.

      Shorelander trailers are assembled right next door to Lunds. The serial # on the trailers are assigned a boat serial # after they are delivered.  All Lunds and Crestliners leave the factory on Shorelander trailers. With the exception of a dealer occasionally picking up just the boat itself.

      Try giving Modern Assemblies in New York Mills, Mn a call.  They are the ones that built those seats for Lund. The can probably rebuild them for you to original. They do nice work at a reasonable price.
