Anyone heard where they're catching the crappies on Washington and what size? I went out last weekend and caught around 14 sunfish right before the storm hit in Bakers Bay and they were all around palm sized.

have been doing well on crappies on w0a0shington on 3rd point in 20-25 fow with a little white jig and crappie minnow. this last week fish would bite very light to the point I didnt use any bobber,just jig,minnow and ultra-light rod.tried other jig,waxies and they just wanted small minnow.Going tommorrow a.m.hopefully they will be a little more aggressive.Most suppende about 5 feet off bottom. Good luck.Size has been from 8-13.5 last 2 times out.

bobbert, Here you want people to give you there info on lake washington but on your other post today you want people to kiss your a__ and you might give them the name of your hot walleye lake. I don't think so! If your walleye lake is so good, why don't you stay there?!?

Hey u don't have to get smart about it. I also told people were I was catching sunfish. And you don't know why I want to catch crappies either do u. 2 of my little cousins want to go out and catch some fish so I thought it would be nice to catch some panfish other than sunfish because the bite turned off for me.

Dito to James walleyes post, looking for fishabe structure and finding fish where no one else is fishing is, really a ego builder, you have bragging rights. but only after you fished it a few times, share with someone, the crowd that gathers will chase the fish out of that area and you can look for another one, thats just part of the game.

LEE, you said your crappies were 8-13.5'', was that mostly 8-9 inchers and 1 13.5'' or are you catching 10-12''ers too? Fished yesterday off third in 32 ft. caught 12-15 crappies, all about 8.5-9.5'', 1 that was 10.5''. lots of fish marked, very picky though. Just curious, any info would be great. how did you do this morning? thanks

DID PRETTY BAD TODAY. STARTED AT 6+.30 AND FISHED TILL 10.00 ,CAUGHT 7 CRAPPIES WITH THE SMALLEST BEING 7AND TH

E BIGGEST BEING 11.5. FISH WOULD NIBBLE THE FIRST TWO HOURS AND AFTER THAT NEXT TO NO MARKED FISH.USED SMALL JIG IN WHITE AND GREEN WITH SMALL CRAPPIE MINNOW.

WAS IN 24 FOW AND MOST MARKED FISH WERE 6-8 FEET OF THE BOTTOM. ITHINK WE NEED SOME WARM, STABLE WEATHER. LOST MORE THAN I CAUGHT TODAY,MOST I GOT UP ABOUT HALF WAY AND THEN THEY SWAM AWAY. AVG. SIZE TODAY WAS APPROX 9 INCHES. TRIED IN BAKERS BAY LATTER AND THAT WAS EVEN WORSE THAN THIRD POINT. I THINK IM GOING TO TRY A ALL DARK TRIP AS THATS WHEN IM HAVING BEST LUCK. WITH A LITTLE LUCK COULD MAYBE HOOK UP WITH SOME REAL GOOD AGGRESSIVE FISH,THEY HAVE ME FOOLED.

Did okay today, 6 bluegills and a crappie in the middle of all those people off the north access. Only spent like 2 hours....Started off by that little grass island but after nothing I moved in by the group. Want to do it again tomorrow but I'm tired, the Vikings are playing, and its an hour drive for me.

Anyone else who enjoys some panfish action, take teh kids out. Plenty of ice to drive on.

i was going to fish on the north access (third point) but i dont think my little 2 wheel drive s-10 would have made it back onto shore as the ice is piled up by shore the 4 wheel drives look like they were having a hard time getting back up so we fished bakers but didnt have much luck but had fun nonethe less

I fished the last 2 days off 3rd point in 29ft. Marking lots of fish, but boy are they finicky. Caught 15 or so today but had many more that just wanted to look. The fish I did catch were all pretty small. I have the most success using a small jig with a treble hook and a minnow head. An ultralight rod seems to help since they bite so light. I leave a whole minnow down on the other rod, but it's pretty much ignored. If these fish ever get hungry it could be a lot of fun, even though they are small.

Has anyone caught any walleyes off 3rd pt? I'm assuming they are shallower since I haven't had many big marks on the Vex. Good Luck everyone!

Was out on Bakers on Saturday and caught 40 or so sunnies, 4 crappies, 1 perch. Kept 12 sunnies, 3 crappies.

Was in about 18 feet of water using a fat boy and wax worms. All 4 crappies were different sizes and started hitting about 4:20 or so.

Did see maybe one walleye on the camera, but I saw it tooooo late to tell if that is for sure what it was and only saw part of the body as it was lower then my camera was set for.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.
