mid march crappies

Anyone having any luck with decent sized gills or papermouths in a 20 mile radius of ottertail? haven't been out myself for a week or two. Had to take advantage of the snow with my sled instead!!! Any word is much appreciated.

Crappies are really going on Big Pine, 15-16 inchers. Look for the crowd.

Can we get the craps during the day or only morning/evening?

Yesterday 3/13 the crappies quit when the sun got bright, this weekend they were popping in the afternoon. Big Pine was boring yesterday so we went north and hammered the sunnies. For 5 guys we kept about 35 that were 7-8" for a fry and threw back some 9+ and a lot of 6". Only fished from 1 to 2:30. They were hitting really light and some of the guys had to sight fish because they couldn't feel the bite.

Early morning has been the best for me. Evenings are O.K., but I would try in the morning.....They are big!

      I have caught them on Vermilion when the mayflies are hatching in the evening by using a fly rod with small poppers or may fly type dry flies. Just cast to the surfacing fish. A spinning rod with an Adjusta Float with poppers or flies may work even better. Cliff

      I have also wondered why there are no Sauger in Vermilion. I have never caught one there or heard of one being caught by anyone else. Cliff

      Thanks for the report MNfan.  Too bad fishing wasn't better for you. Good weather at least. Nice to get out this time of year.
