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 grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.
