Ripley Lake

6 posts in this topic

Heading out to Ripley (near Litch) tomorrow to chase pannies. Anyone been out there lately and had any luck? What part of the lake, etc...

I'm not from the area, just heading out there to take my grandpa out. Appreciate the info...

Look to where all the people are, if any. If not look out along the rushes on northside of lake, stay south of them the sunnies may start biting soon there. Sorry not much info but its a starting point. Slim

Thanks for the info. Anything to be concerned with regarding ice conditions; springs, etc. I will be going out on snowmobile with the portable in tow. Could be a mess with this weather... crazy.gif

Tried the North Central side by the reeds, fishing was terrible. Moved over to the North West side with similar luck but the weather was outstanding! Everyone had a good time but only managed one 4" perch. Next time I guess.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
