Does anyone know if there any decent crappies in Grove Lake?

Would my best bet be to go there or go to West Olaf On Sunday?

If you were fishing for crappies where would you go in the Pelican area?

Grove lake is not a crappie lake. I fish that lake almost everyday in the summer and have never caught a single crappie. If you are looking to catch some crappies around the Pelican area, Lake Lida is a good place to start.

Don't overlook the Olaf's :-) Grove is a great little gem, but word got out on the internet and it now sees hundreds of people out there on weekends trying for nice sunnies. They are done for the most part.

There are crappies in there but you will need to target them and you will not find many over the 8" mark. I hit it early ice this year and caught a ton of little crappies. I then had a guy send me a message on the forums and he said they were catching some hog crappies, I met him out there for those 12-15" And truly we caught 25 crappies under 9" and he informed me that "those are pushing 12 inches, eh?" There are a bunch of little lakes in that area that will treat you much better for crappies. When we fished crappies we hit deeper water and never saw a sunnie, in my times fishing sunnies, never have seen a crappie.

What about Pete lake? I see it on a map but have been told that there are only bass in there?

      Got one over 40in on a small local lake like 3-4 yrs back , 2lb line...fishing panfish. Got a pic up in the St cloud reports somewhere. But biggest was just shy of 43 on Rainey River about 20 yrs ago

      If you make up it up this way at all I'll have the peg on a good bite somewhere. Sometimes traveling a little farther north makes ice fishing more enjoyable. Keep on posting, we have tons of well educated anglers that roam these forums!

      I'm slacking bud, I haven't done any of that yet lol. The excitement is here though, been talking to some co-workers lately about all things ice fishing. Soon enough guys!!

      My troubles are that even with the hyfax on the slides the munchkin take a little bit of a kick to get started.    My sled does not have studs and has carbides on the skis. So when I hook up to the house with the tow bar the track spins without breaking the house loose. It's like hooking it to a truck. Too much power on the sled side and no ability to transfer it to forward motion.    The 4-wheeler with chains has zero problems. Pulls it like it's not even there.

      I'd like to see this expanded to help revive our pike size and population.
