Island crappies

4 posts in this topic

If I can't make it up to Vermilion this weekend, which it doesn't look like I'm going to, I'd like to try Island lake for crappies. I don't have a snowmobile or atv, so I was wondering if anyone knew of some good places to try for them that were within a halfmile walking distance from a place I can park. Never fished crappies on Island, so anything would be helpful. Thanks.

p.s. Northlander, any ideas?

I have a few ideas but I dont know how they would pan out. Get the hotspots map and check out some spots off bear island road and also a couple off of MN power landing. Some are only a couple hundred yards and others may be a 1/2 mile.

I have FRi and sat off so let me know if you want to try it out and we can get a few guys together and hit some spots. I never ice fish island so its new to me too.

E-mail me.

Half a mile from an access sort of limits you on Island lake.

I'd go off the Eastern MP&L access. Look at a map and take it from there.

Thanks guys. I can go Sunday, but I can't go friday or saturday. I'll shoot you an email about Sunday, but I know you said you weren't off. Thanks again.

      I think I have  been checking the 10 day forecast every 20 minutes hoping the ice will come faster

      I'm looking for the best and cheapest place to get a 30 pound propane tank filled. Seems like all I can find are exchanges for 20 pounders.
