Well Friday was a little slow picked up some nice gills here and there no crappies. Sat morning picked up a couple 10 inch gills and a couple more for the bucket here and there. Sat night 930 the crappies came through I caught 17 biggest was 12. Sunday picked a few more gills up for the bucket before heading off to a different lake for walleye.

again fish wanted nothing to do with minnows only caught one with them. All other fish caught on a tungsten orange and green glow tipped with only a wax worm.

 

we were in 12 fow the sunfish were 2 off the bottom crappie cruising 4 off bottom

Side note tried walleye tonight missed 3 of them! Now I remember why I don't walleye fish much stupid things

I took a break from walleye fishing on Vermilion and decided to chase crappies for a few days to get away from the crowds.

Fun and a good bite also!

My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish

No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12

Went out with a friend today. Looked like it was the month of March with the temp and water on the ice, and they bit like it was March as well! Ended up with 30 sunfish (7 1/2 to 9 in) 6 crappies and 2 perch! Was a lot of fun best bite I've had yet this year!

If your going out I would advice to wear cleats espically when that water on top of the ice freezes.

Went out yesterday and pounded the gills. Was about for about 2-3 hours and caught 100-150 gills. Biggest was almost 9 inches. Fun time!

First off very nice pics everyone, makes me think I have to spend more time chasing pannies and less time on the eyeballs. 

Rick, do you mind explaining how you go about sight fishing? Are you old school about it and lay around the ice all day peering down the hole? Or maybe a little higher tech with just hole in a flip over/hub of some sort? Or are you going all out with underwater cameras in a shack? What I've done in the past is drill a big ol' hole and sit in my flip over. Which is a lot of work without an ice saw, especially if the hole isn't producing like I think it should be. Just thinking their might be some easier ways going about it.  Thanks

      Tulibee? Last February on Frazer Bay

      Where else can you go and pull so many big walleyes? Just go in knowingly that you aren't going to keep anything. Sleeper option is better than portable . Limited action during the day anyway. Now sunset to sunrise can be game on all night long. We put back 14 over 22" last weekend. When I say we it was myself, wife and two kids under 7. This lake is a blast. Good Luck

      Was out last Saturday and moved a couple times then into the house for the overnight. No luck on walleyes but did see a lot of small perch on the camera at multiple locations and depths from 15' to 33'. It was still a fun time and that is the allure of Mille Lacs for me more than bringing anything home for a meal. I guess it is all what you are looking to accomplish. Have fun regardless!

      Last year I grabbed my new license a few days early and hit a lake east of here.  Had my new license in my pocket.  2 people on the lake and I got checked by a young CO that walked out from the access. Nice guy. Showed it to him and he said this is for the new season. I had the old one on shore in the car and told him that. He said no problem and mentioned to carry it till the new season starts.  Checked my bucket and we visited a bit. Then he walked about 1/4 mile to the only other person I saw out to check him. So carry the current one  if you buy early. 
    • eyeguy 54
      better buy your new one on the 24th and carry both so you dont end up in jail...

      Mine says it expires 2/25 this year. Either that or it' too work out to read.

      Fished 4 days this last weekend. 1 tullibee, 1 walleye, sun up to sun down drilled and moved several times. Fun to fish but came home and limited out on sunnies on a small lake near me the allure of the big pond is over for me. Just my 2 cents good luck and have fun if you go.

      When I purchased them at a sports show, the guy doing the demo recommended the small duckbill pliers he was using sold by Menard’s. I tried using a small needle nose as well as a leather man, and ruined quite a few. I got the duck bills at Menard’s and that was the ticket, just like the guy said! I think the pressure is spread more evenly over the stop.
