crappies

3 posts in this topic

I hear that Mille Lacs has some nice crappies however rarely see or hear of any caught! Are there fish or only fish stories?

It is true, there are some huge crappies in the lake and at certain times of the year are easy to catch... I can not give any more information because several people I know take their kids to catch them, and I would like to make sure it stays fun for the kids and not have a bunch of adults pushing kids aside to catch some crappies...

it is basically a wild goose chase for most, they can be caught in the bays in the winter and spring, boat harbors can put some out this time of year. My boat got a huge 17 incher off a shad rap earlier this fall in the weeds. if you really want to join the crappie circus try in front of scenic bay resort in the winter. laugh.gif

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
