A friend of mine won a package at Izaty's that included a free launch, so I went with him. We had a blast! The captain tried a few different spots till we found em, 7' deep on the rocks. I was very pleased with the boat, the captain, and the bait runner. If you fish a lot, consider bringing your own spinning rod set up for slip bobbering. We brought own, as the poles they had were so so, and I like a longer rod, and lighter line than what they had. I think the trip is $35/person.

I would call and make sure that they have room on their boats. They usually have different time slots. 4 hour or 8 hour. It would suck to drive up there and not be able to get on.

My dad and I went out on a launch with Eddy's last night and had a great night. 38 'eyes caught in all (14 people on board) between 8:15pm and 10:00pm with a 28", 27" and a couple of 25"ers. Great people, great service. I recommend them highly.

Going out of Eddy's this weekend with the wife and another couple. We got a package deal, but I think the launch is around $30

mille lacs was fun, my buddy cought a 4 pound smallie and i ended up catching a 26 in walter and tons of others i think there was 9 keepers total (and tons of 13 and unders)out of 10-15 people on the boat. it was well worth the money i recomend izatys to every one looking to go on a future luanch.

We had the same luck out of eddy's My buddy's wife caught a 26in and we ended up keeping 6. I think we caought 30 fish with 11 people on the boat. The captain said we should be caughting them at 8:30, and it was like someone turned on a switch cause it was about 8:31 when we started hitting them. It was a GREAT time.

      Looks fun Eyguy. As normal no time to get out but did just finish up cleaning and checking over the yak so maybe thats a sign. Haha.

        Yes sir! 8ft-9ft rods seem to work the best IMO.

      4/23/17     Crappies still biting in west Metro area lakes. Water temp in the mid 50's now, and the fish are moving a little shallower. We caught tons of 8 to 11 inch crappies in about ten feet of water, with some weeds on the bottom. Fished a jig tipped with a Powerbait minnow about four feet below a slip-float for great success. Some sunfish starting to show up in the same areas. Water temp probably won't rise much this week with the forecast of cooler temps and quite a bit of rain, but as the water does warm fish should continue to move shallower and get more aggressive. Check out my You Tube channel for some short video clips and a full length show about springtime crappie fishing. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.
