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.

      Took my daughter fishing today. Not unusual. She's 18 and has fished with dad since she was a baby. What was unusual was her boyfriend came with us. She grew up fast. Glad it's still cool to hang with her dad. Brought home a pile of crappies to boot. All had fun.

      I change mine every year. Probably could get by longer then that, but I like to do it every year.
