Plesant Lake Crappie

11 posts in this topic

I've heard that theres some pretty nice crappies in plesant lake suspended at around 20 fow in 45 fow and most of the fish you catch will be over 10". Am I the only one who has heard that?

You "might" pick up a 10" crappie in that lake...most likely during the summer more so than the winter. They suspend over deep water in the summer. Most of the fish are in that 6" to 8" range. Like other area lakes, they never get a chance to grow much bigger. Nav

Bobberboy: I heard the same thing, I just don't quite believe it. I've caught numbers on the lake, but never anything consistently big. Bass, now thats another story. Bill

Hey Ackotz, I found'em. Caught about 15 most over 10" one 14" kept 3 for dinner. Had to reel up slow so I could get'em to go back down the hole. Stacked anywhere from 48' to about 20' one or two here and there the whole process took about 4 hours.

It gets 45' deep in that lake? I think I found 36' one time. Although I have gotten some nice fish out of there in the past.

      7/24/17     Got my son and one of my daughters out with Grandpa Smutka on Waconia this afternoon (I have football practice every morning this week). We targeted panfish alongside a weedy reef. Small jig spinners (1/8 ounce VMC Mooneye Jig with a #2jig spinner and a 2" Powerbait Minnow) slow rolled over the weed tops caught tons of crappies and a bonus bass. A 1/16 ounce jig with a 1" Power Grub suspended 4 feet below a slip float caught crappies and sunfish, Caught numbers and some nice ones--beautiful weather and great time for the kids spent with Dad and Grandpa. Good luck, take a kid fishing, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      I know back in the day, late 90's, people camped out along (approaches beside it)the forest road along Birch lake.  The road on the right, right before the dam on hwy 1 south of Ely.   I dont know all the legalities of thr forest there, they may or may not have been legal.

      The local state parks are also an option. Very modest yearly fee there also. Cliff

      Absolutely. I'd never get mad at a guy squirrel hunting while I'm deer hunting. Thats just public land hunting. Now if he shot at squirrels very close to me that's different. Maybe the guys I talked to had a bad experience but it isn't that frequent. That's what I hope anyway.

      Looks like the forest service campgrounds charge a modest fee.  But the are pretty nice.   Fall lake, fenske lake are a couple to consider

      Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      We have had a great week of fishing with a few showers and strong winds.

      Up in Canada, jigging on reefs and underwater humps are producing the best in 22-28 ft. with gold, pink and orange jigs. Pulling spinners is also an option on reefs in 22-24 ft of water.

      In Minnesota, walleyes and perch have been caught pulling spinners in 18-28 ft. West of Four Blocks, East of Crow Duck and East of Garden Islands, with black and gold being the most effective.

      On both sides, muskies have been aggressive when throwing buck tails and top waters on rock reefs.  The algae bloom has slowly begun to pick up, however, fish are still visible.

      We hope to see you soon!
