I haven't had to change my presentation at all so whatever worked earlier should work now!!

a crappie minnow and some kind of glow jig always works for me, and if they get picky I down size to a waxie

As I posted earlier -- I killed them on Big Pine on a red glow rattle buckshot spoon and about 2/3 a minnow.

A deadly presentation right now.

I found that either the smallest size chubby darter or a frostee glow jig works very well. Both of which I tipped with a minnow head

I've found that crappies hitting on glow red jig/minnow before sunup, and glow white jig/waxie in the shallows during the day.

Sounds like you have a lot of good choices.

WEll the last few days appretly they have been biting better on waxies, spikes, mousies, and an occasional minnow.

As the season progresses I would say the larger profile minnow imitations will become more and more productive. The 2" power minnow will be my go to bait very soon.

I've been using Euro Larva all season with a glow jig. I'm not loosing right now. All colors of larva are working. It sure is FUN!

Well I didn't pull in any crappies today...Fished on olaf..caught a lot of sunfish and a few bass using fat boys, frisbee jigs, frostee jigs, and a few other things.. nothing would touch a crappie minnow. the only action i got was when i had a wax worm. anyone have any tips or info? or any other lakes in the Pelican are that are doing fairly well with crappies?

Thanks

I'm a bit farther north than you but the crappies have been biting pretty consistantly on a few lakes.

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
