Ten Mile Crappies

Recommended Posts

koWALLEYEski

Just wondering how many people have been out to Ten Mile catching crappies. I have fished it in the past and if I remember right this is about the time everyone starts going down there. I caught a couple down there the other night. One was around 13 so there are some decent fish moving shallow.

Haven't been there in a long long time. To fish anyway. My wifes sister lives on the lake, and I used to go fishing with my brother in law, but he's out of town alot on business now a days. Might have to check it out, its been awhile, cant even remember where everyone fishes at, if your talking about from shore, heck I cant even remember where my in laws place is. nice guy aren't I, heh, heh, think its time I give them a friendly call.

Ten Mile is quite the sight in the spring. It is cool to see all the light up bobbers go flying through the air. smile.gif Dano --- you fish right off the road by the ten mile steak house. Really, you are fishing in N. Ten Mile Lake. Some nights it is tough to find a spot down there. I have fished all along that shore and seemed to catch a few fish. I love spring crappie fishing and its hard to beat when you can do it from shore. I am wondering why ppl like to hug that culvert so much?

ok, steak house, thanks, I couldn't quite remember, I was thinking a cafe or convenient store or something, but its been awhile since I've been there. Ever since my wife and sister where on the outs, I guess I haven't been interested in being around that area. But that was quite awhile ago.

theres a couple other small lakes I want to try too, around the paelican rapids area, that are supposed to be decent for shore fishing. Shore fishing is all I'll be able to get in on this year(no boat anymore) so I better take full advantage this spring. Maybe we'll se you out sometime. I drive a green ford supercrew.

My wife's Aunt's husband said he drove by there last Friday and they were catching the crap out of the crappies there. He said it looked like everybody had one on at once they were coming in so fast.

koWALLEYEski - we should probably go give it a try on N. Ten Mile this weekend. Last year it was pretty fun going there. Looks like I'll have to go buy another $5 light up bobber though.

Has anyone checked the water temp there yet? I would think that they will be in there very soon if not already. Must have been about this time last year that they were in there.

In the crappie forum, crappie tom - who knows A LOT about crappies, said you cana get a thermometer that you submerse in the water to get a good reading.

I wonder if the temp gauge on the aqua view would work instead of buying a thermometer

Yeah thatd work good. Maybe we should bring a boat out there one day so we can just vertically jig over the top of them. I think we'd hook up a lot more, but it would be a lot more work that just going from shore.

The water temp has gone up in the last few days with all this nice sunshine. The fish should be moving soon.

There had to be at least 75 people fishing from shore, not sure if anyone was catching anything, just out for dinner.

Quite a lighted bobber show at night!

Hey kowalleyski.. I was down there last night and caught 7 all small ones, lost one that was pretty nice by shore. A lot of people were catching them but there isn't much for size.. I talked to a guy down there who fished the day before (saturday) and said they didn't really start up till later about 9-9:30pm, the decent ones that is... I stayed for about an hour and a half.. and then left.. I got out there at around 9 and they were still catching them when I left at 10:30pm ..I also talked to a friend I knew down the shoreline near the black weeds, they caught quite a few decent eaters but had to weed through the bullheads.. I think this weekend might be a little better...but its hard to say with the 60 degree weather. who knows...

I would assume that with this warm weather, more and more would start moving in to there.

Its good to hear you were catching fish. Its fun just being out there even if they arent monsters. tacklebox have you talked to wheeler at all about his " secret crappie spot" he claims he caught 170 fish already but I never know when to believe that character.

yes i know he is full of hot air sometimes, but he does have some very good spots for fishing and hunting. I just think he exagerates a lot. I believe that he gets fish but just not the exact number. We all do that sometimes. Well not me, but haha!

Drove by tonight, and saw the "light show" at dark: Seemed there were only about 25 people out there: Don't know how they were doing: I don't like fishing in the crowds but drove by after hitting the south side of S.ten mile: and their were some fish, but they were small: As soon as the sun set, it was nothing but bullheads: This is Alaska style "combat fishing" it appeared! This year is going to be a little different, the water is warm, and the fish are up very early: The bass are up, the pike are about done....kinda odd: The crappies should start VERY soon, if it isn't too late already!

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!
    • The Chemist
      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew. 
    • The Chemist
      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.
    • The Chemist
      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.
    • eyeguy 54
      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more. 
    • monstermoose78
      I would fish them trees
    • HunterFisher11
      So I should set my house in really shallow in on those trees?? Or stay out a little bit on the drop? Going to do a over night if that makes a difference?
    • monstermoose78
      Find them trees if they are in the water. I fished a lake like that and it was fishing the crappies in the trees. I had to use heavier line to horse them out quick.
