Have heard conflicting sides about weather they are spawning or not yet. Have even heard they are done. Was out this weekend and gills ain't spawned yet even caught a northern full of spawn :cofused: Anyone know about the crappies?

I was out on Traverse and around the Alex area and none of the sunnies or crappies have spawned. The fish we caught were all females and full of eggs. They should be going in the next couple days up here. Should be in full force down in the Willmar area you would think. I only had 61 for a water temp on Traverse on Friday. Big gills out there. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Blue gills will spawn typically in mid to late June and into early-mid July once the water warms up for them.
Crappies will spawn a little earlier like early June and sometime in there. (I'm not 100% positive on that one, I cant remember)
And normally Pike spawn once the ice gets off or few weeks later when the water is cold. Its hard to believe that a pike had spawn in it, but who knows anything is possible. wink.gif

And keep those hooks sharp!

Last night we caught some male crappies. They had all spawned. We caught a couple females that had not. The water temp was up to 69 on that particular lake.

      Is there a public access on the lake? I see it is stocked so Im guessing it must be a public lake. Would like to try and fish for lakers through the ice..

      Here's another issue can't play this video: 23 minutes ago, curt quesnell said: Mid January rolls in and fishing remains pretty good on LOTW.  Shot this video Monday. Last round of snow added a million pillow drifts of a foot or two tall.  Off road travel is possible but not like it was last week .NCOR MLK Day Report.mp4     Sorry, there is a problem We could not locate the item you are trying to view.

      I would like to fish walleye and crappies, very new to this as it has been many years since I have ice fished! Using Ice Castle so not as mobile as a person could be with a portable fish house. Appreciate any feedback, Thanks!

      works fine for me but I noticed you have to be logged in to see ice fishing section now. If your not logged in you can still see every other forum Maybe @Rick can get it fixed?

      Like Kidmoe said. about the humidity. This time of year when the furnace is running a lot houses get really dry, and just like us their skin gets dried out. Also make sure their bed or they are not sleeping in front of or by a heat register.  The warmth feels good but it's not helping.
