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!
