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?

      Berserker Bass.   This is probably the most exciting hit I have ever had from a bass.   Had to slow it down to get the full effect .Berzerker bass video

      Have not fished down there but up river a little way in the Ramsey area I have been doing well on smallies Either trolling raps up river bouncing of the bottom or drifting down pounding the shorelines with meps spinners.   Meps are one of my favorite lures for the river that and buzz baits.   The Mississippi is fun because you have a chance at catching anything.

      Im wanting to go and fish the missisippi river by my place, there is a little inlet with some down trees, a drop off  and a little bridge that goes over the inlet. Its off of east river road at the end of 79th.  I believe its called riverview heights park. My questions is, has anyone gone fishing there? I see people there quite often and have chatted with them a little bit, but haven't gotten much out of them. It looks promising for some largemouth and catfish. if you have fished there what works good? and are they biting now? I will be there at about 5 am tomorrow morning.

      Nuts, I had to leave Fraser on Monday for some business and a trip, but I think your MO is the right one. However, there are a lot of small (10-12") fish on the reef tops as of Sunday. You might try deeper water just off the tops. I'm not a fan of bobber fishing (like to feel the bite) but it's been a consistent winning method. Dick

      Thanks for the info guys. We did end up going and launching at Beanies. Ten bucks to launch. Not too bad. There is a for sale by owner sign posted there but it's obviously private for now. As for the fishing, it was slow. Pulled the plug at noon and headed for the Mississippi. Did much better there.
