Has anyone been out fishing crappies? We had some luck last year up on the Des Moines River. I'm looken for a good lake in Nobles or Murray county. Any sugestions?

For Murray county crappies I'd say try the north side of Lake Shetek. The areas around the dykes on Valhalla road, or Teepeeota point.

Boilerguy; I was talking to a guy the other day and he said he netted a northern down below the dam on lime and it broke his net, Said it would go over 15 pound and he released it into the lake. It sounded like alot of them were being helpped over the dam. Later

Hey Catfish, How ya been?

I believe it. Early in the year you can see a lot of big northerns below the dam. Opening day is kind of a circus along the shore line. You have to fight off a LOT of carp and bullheads, but the big boys are definately in there.

mnfinsandfur,

2 years ago, Buffalo Lake by Dovray was putting out some monsters! We had a few fish between 1 1/2 and 2lbs. I wasn't able to make it over there last year, so I don't know how consistent that lake is. As stated earlier, Shetek is always a good option.

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
