Those darn Crappies

Recommended Posts


I wanted to thank kelly-p for the fishing reports...."be thay good or be they bad"

I am glad that people are seeing crappies on the cameras...that tells me that at least the fish are there, If the fish are there I have a chance to catch them.

I live in the Twin City area where there is lots of pressure on fish all the time. If you want to catch fish down here you better be better than the next guy.

Its not tough all the time but when it is it will mean the difference between coming off the lake with a few fish or coming off the lake with your tale between your legs.

I kind of like the tough fishing trip once in a while, it has a tendency to make you a better fishing person and also makes a trip where you catch a bunch so much sweeter.

I personally think the fishing will pick up more than it has been.

Fishing is suppose to be fun........Have some.

The REAL good Crappie fishers (of which I
AM NOT one) will come and do fine.

The rewards are great so the battle shouldnt
be so easy.

The fish are bigger this year and the "fish
for everyone" bite will pick up very soon.
(thats my only hope)

That's great that people are seeing on the camera. I think now that walleyes are starting to grow and being stocked aggressively in that lake, there is some competition for those URL crappie. Before the crappie could roam around where ever. Now they aren't the dominant species in that lake. I agree, those willing to move around and pick up a few crappie here and there will be rewarded with numbers.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
