if you read old posts i offered to sell a GPS spot in isle bay where a guy caught a 17 incher earlier this year but i still have no offers and no seven dollars? isle bay is the place to be for that hot crappie action right in fromt of scenic bay resort.

Haha hot crappie action :P, When my dad put his house out of Jacks there was a hole in the bay guys would get crappie's out of every year, usually a good group of houses there, cant miss it.

I had the picture but i lost it.... grin.gif I had a good time driving through the huge colony in front of scenic last year at night, talked to about 25 groups and saw one 9 icher caught. if a guy could get there early he would have a chance.

Going out a.m. of the 23rd (6-7 a.m.). Would this be a good time for crappies infront of senicbay resort in isle. Would like to give it a shot before ice out, tommaro seems like a good day to do so. Also does anyone know if crappies are hangin high or right at bottom. What deapth's of water have

anyone heard of them being caught. Any info would be greatly

thank's

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.
