Helpful hints!?

4 posts in this topic

Heading up this weekend to experience the hopefully good fishing...haven't been to URL for a couple years and can't wait! Just wondering if anyone could help us out on where to possibly start, what's good to use (tackle wise) and if there's a certain depth we want to be at? Looking for the eyes and crappies. Any info would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

All by yourself in the shaded areas would be my advise if your on top of them all it takes is a minnow

I'd like to second what cookie said about the shaded areas. We noticed that the holes we drilled by the clear ice did not produce, but the ones drilled in the deeper snow produced better.

Color didn't seem to matter, technique seemed more important, you need to get them to chase your jig upwards, once they chase it, most times they are yours. If you get 'sniffers', ones that you can see on the vex but won't bite, move to a different hole and then come back to it in 5-10 minutes and try again, with a different jig if possible. And during that magic crappie time of dusk, if you can see them on the Vex, they'll bite.

Thanks guys...sounds like all there is left to do is start pulling them up the hole!

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
