Was looking for some info on how people were doing on here and surprised i didnt see anyone writing about it. Is it that big a secret havent fished it in years and even then didnt hit it hard. Wondering if anyone has any tips on where to find the crappies or maybe some walleyes. Not looking for any honeyholes but just some info. If you dont want others to know feel free to email me.. nevermind908@yahoo.com ... appreciate any info and good luck to y'all.

We have perm house out. Moved it a lot. Back to a spot where we have gotten small walleyes, but not many. About 23' deep, with some scattered rocks on bottom. We are away from the beaten path. We were one of the first to a "community" spot, and got a couple nice eyes, and lately it has been dead sea. So we moved far away from traffic, and not doing much better, but lots of perch and a few crappies, and a few walleyes. Typical night is bunch of perch and 3 or 4 crappies and 2 small (11-13") walleyes.

I've been fishing it once a week, all over the place. Very few eye's, some real quality crappies, although you really have to work for'em. Perch all you want in the 3-5" range. The only thing worth noting were some good size northerns off the mumps in 19 fow. The bigger crappies I caught were on the ramsey beach side at the end of the bar roughly 20-25 fow. Good luck!

Tonight got some pretty darn fat perch. Some smaller ones too, but if we were keeping them, they were better than normal. Nothing else. They were hitting only big fatheads on jigs, and hitting them pretty darn hard.

      What about Super America at Pike Lake? I think they do the same, with better hours. they refill out of big tank.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
