It's officially "crappie time"

1 post in this topic

Well with the walleye season coming to a close, I just pulled my angling house off of pelican for the 12th straight season, it's now time to pursue what I think is the best specie of fish thru the ice, the crappie. I didn't get out as much as I would have liked to for walleyes, but I will surely make up for it with the crappie fishin now till ice off. It doesn't get much more fun then sitting on a good crappie hole and pulling out slabs of em. My son, brother, brothers father-in-law, and myself like to get out at least 3 to 4 nights a week during march and what a blast, most times you don't even have time to drink a adult beverage when they start hitting, then there are some nights when you do, but rarely if you are on a good spot will you get skunked, sometimes they will bite all night and you just gotta tell yourself to go home. We just keep enough nice ones for some good eatin and release plenty. I hope everyone else does this because the crappies are just coming back on most lakes, but I know a few that have plenty but could get fished out real quick if hit too hard.

Sorry for the long post but I get pretty worked up this time of the year.

Good luck and have fun to everyone that goes out and does the same thing.

      Just wondering if there was any new info/topic on upper red?

      There is about a million skid houses for sale around the lake that you may get pretty good deals on if you don't want to go through all the work.

      10/23/16     Central MN      Cold front last week and again this morning brought new ducks into central MN. Mainly observed migrating flocks of ringnecks, wigeon, gadwalls, canvasbacks, and mallards--calendar migrators from ND and southern Canada most likely. Had a few good days of duck hunting from a boat on a couple mid-sized shallow lakes. It is that time of the year for calendar migrators. Any time you can get out over the next couple weeks during or the day after a strong west or NW wind, or the day after a cold, clear night with a light westerly wind go for it. Soon these ducks will blow through and we will be waiting for the hardy Canadian ducks that stay just south of the snow and ice line. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Brian, That certainly can not be a good thing for Vermilion! I have not seen it that bad on Big Bay yet. Cliff

      I was back up to morris yesterday oct 22 fished afternoon for about 3 hrs. in 17 to 19 feet caught about 25 walleye and sauger mix average size about 10 in. only 2 keepers. Lots of boats everyone was catching fish. I'm guessing I missed as many as I caught. Stinger saved the day!
