Myself and Run-and-Gun hit Caribou lake tonight and managed about half dozen crappies in 12 feet water. Anybody else doing anything?

AJ,

After I left for Hibbing, Darrell stayed at my house and caught only 1, but the other buddies of mine in the house next to me (only just a few feet away) managed to pull out a total of 19. Odd, but that's how it goes.

Nunnu, thats how it goes for crappie fishing, those darn things school up so tight sometimes and sometimes move around in no predictable pattern. Al our fish came in one at a time at diffenent times, no schoolers.

Andy J and I caught some Perch today out on Pike. We had some good little schools come in, but there was quite a bit of dead time too. Yesterday my Dad and I fished out on Grand. We only fished for a few hours and we caught one small walleye, a few small northerns, and one really fat 32" northern. That fish went on 3 really good runs, and was a joy to catch. There were quite a few people out there. Did anyone else have any luck?

A buddy and I were out on a back bay in WI on Sat. and managed eight crappies, and of course I missed a pretty huge one. Get out while you can cause it is going to get cold fast this week.

Got a little fishing in on Saturday near Cromwell. 6 of us caught around 50 crappies and 1 small pike in about 5 hours of fishing. Most of the fish were medium sized with a few smaller ones and a couple bigger fish. All fish were released.

Didn't make WInnie like originally planned. Had forgotten my daughter had games Friday and Saturday night. Have to prioritize the family events. Did get out Saturday morning to Nichols. Had done quite well there couple weeks ago but fished for a few hours and was quite slow (2 crappies--neither worth keeping). Jumped over to Dinham for the first time and caught a few crappies. Again..very slow bite and too small to keep. Wondering if anyone has been up to Boulder? ANyone up for a Boulder trip this coming Saturday?

Hit boulder last tuesday and got only 1 crappie, a nice one around 14 inches. Lost two others, and that was all for the 4 hours we were out.

I went to Caribou last week and managed a small walleye and 7 or so decent crappie. Then boulder on Monday. First time out on that lake, we caught a half dozen real tiny walleyes. Does anyone know where on boulder a guy could find some larger fish? I was fishing out by that first group of shacks. Thanks and good luck.

      Was up on Big Bow last week. Pulled three trucks out that were stuck. Not easy getting around off the roads. We went out of Geigers and he has a nice road where you can get off and fish. Fishing was not good though we didn't try going cross country to our normal spots. Good luck!!

      nills 8 inch is 8 I think.  would be great for pike. less torque required. 
    • eyeguy 54
      wow! talk about service. called marine general in duluth yesterday and its on my step this morning!  drill trigger is at chest level so should be dandy.

      OK, I may not be the most nimble guy in the outdoor world but for the life of me i can't apply those little yellow plastic bobber stops I bought at the Sports Show this past weekend. I ruined a dozen of them just practicing. Anybody else have the same problem? I know you have to be gently and not crush the little buggers. What am I doing wrong?
    • mrpike1973
      As you know I have the 6 inch K Drill after loosing 3 of the biggest pike iv'e seen this weekend not being able to get them up the hole. I need a bigger auger for pike. I have a 7 inch mora hand auger and ordered a plate. Will this work OK or should I get the 8 inch K-drill the width is 7 1/2 inches. I'm willing to spend the $230 for the 8 inch if recommended. My wrists just can't take the 8 inch K drill or Mora drill only was able to use someone else's for a short bit. Worried the Mora will ruin the drill long term. Thanks

      I've always just used electrical tape.  It stretches and forms to the reel foot and rod handle.  Usually stays secure and sheds water.  I don't switch reels often so taking the tape off is not a big issue for me.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      Agreed a buddy of mine uses the little green bands from bait shops for minnow bags very stiff but hold reels on very secure. Personally I don’t like rods that have to have reels taped on just because I like trying new reels with rods and I’m always switching things around.

      You can get around anywhere on Ottertail. I have been out there the past couple weekends and we currently have 20"+ of ice. It is a little rough and some deeper snow drifts but you shouldn't have a problem. A lot of houses and traffic on the lake. 
    • Wanderer
      Ditto this. ^^^^.  Plus they eventually crack and break.

      Mike, the clam bar is going to be your best bet. But I run the troo shine strip lights in my one man flip. There great super bright and have sticky tape on them to connect to a pole. The clam light bar is about same in price maybe a bit more but extremely bright and can be mounted in your poles. I also have the clam sled lights on mine to not as bright but helps light up the ice in front for fishing or the sled or both. Hope that helps
