Well after setting up in calm conditions and the sun shinning bright it all turned into holding on and every man for himself in a portable with it gusting to 35mph+. Plenty of fish and all were crappie and the future is bright. All I can say is from 4:30-7:30 it was steady fish but all the same size of about 4-5 inches. laugh.giflaugh.gif As Lewis and Clarke have done, I will keep looking for the promised land. Just have to keep lookin. The kids were visious and pretty aggresive, don't think I missed a single bite. Tomorrow another day and a new spot, catch you on the rebound.

Hey Whitetips and Boneysalayer,

Sounds like you're working for them and being rewarded. Hope the bigger crappies start snappin' like before.

Well little tougher out there than I expected, snow is dense, will say I got off in one attempt. No shoveling.. Thankyou since I left that and the auger gas at home, 20 inched of ice and no gas and all that booney hopping. May need to trade my 235 chains for a set of 265 then theres nothing out there that will stop me. Fish won today, lucky you know whats! See ya on the ice. frown.gif

      I always use only 1/2 crawler mainly because it is all that is needed to get walleyes to bite. It also more closely resembles the molting rusty crayfish and Mayfly nymphs that the walleyes are eating. The 1/2 crawler also works well when the walleyes are feeding on young-of-the-year perch. It works much better then using a crappie minnow on my rigs for some reason. I have tried both on different lines at the same time and the crawler will out fish the crappie minnow every time! Does not make sense when they are eating minnows, but that is the way it is. I always had problems with the walleyes stealing my bait when I used a whole crawler too. If I fed a whole crawler to the fish long enough for them to eat it, I almost always gut hooked the fish. One of my clients boated a 27-1/2 inch walleye today using 1/2 crawler, a red hook, and a green glow bead. Cliff

      I was wondering if and there is any good fishing in Hastings during the summertime lake Rebecca, lake Isabella, Vermilion River, or anywhere off the banks of the Mississippi? I haven't caught anything yet this year and I am itching to catch anything now. Just a fyi I just bank fish.   Thanks in advance!

      I'm debating whether to bring my small fishing boat on a camping trip with the inlaws last weekend iinJuly. Is it worth it fishing this time of year. We are staying in the Whipolt bay. If I do fish it may be after dark when kids are sleeping. Would be open to catching both walleyes and/or panfish. Send me advice please as I have fished the lake only once.

      Cliff, Why do you use a 1/2 crawler and not a whole one? I usually use a whole crawler on my Lindy. I caught this nice 27" tonight on a red #2 with a green soft bead and a big fat whole crawler.
