Crappies

7 posts in this topic

Hey all, I am looking to get my boat out on the river this week/weekend. I would really like to catch a few crappies if I do. I was planning on trying either the spots I hit by Bayport this winter, or I have heard up towards Taylors Falls there are a few hold they hold in for pre-spawn. With this warm week, it may not be long before they spawn. Any one have advice? Interested in going?

My goal was to sneak out tomorrow evening, as well as thins weekend, but too many things to do. I hope to spend either an afternoon or morning one day this weekend on the water. It is hard for me to say when I will, I have stuff I must get done this weekend if I am going to get to go Turkey hunting fishing etc later. You may be better off getting out by yourself, I can't commit to a time. Maybe later? Or if you want me to contact you when I know, I can.

They might be in the marinas, if not keep trying and you might hit a bonanza.

Here's Ferny's Croix crappie advise:
If you've ever caught a crappie on the river that spot is usually a good spot...or near a good spot year after year. It seems to me that every place I've caught crappies I catch them in the same place the next year.
You sometimes get the incidental crappie when trolling for eyes and saugers...remember that place! I don't ever remember catching a small crappie on the croix? How about everyone else?

Ferny.

ferny know of what he speaks.
I've got one spot picked out that once the water goes down I'll be all over it. Must have pulled 25 out of the the spot I'm thinking. Not rocket science either. yellow twister tail and a jig.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
