Redwing Crappies

4 posts in this topic

Anyone ever try for crappies this time of year on the river. I've fished for eyes & saugers but would like to try for a few slabs. Any info would be greatly appreciated, depth, structure, bait or even a spot or two to try. The few times i fished the river I went out of Everett's and fished from the dam and alittle bit south. I would think some of the backwater around Everett's would hold a few craps. Anyway good luck to all this open water season.

I've caught a couple crappies with jig n minnow closer to the shoreline by the dam. Maybe some of those marina's down stream could have them in there? Dunno, but they're in there.

      Best thing you can do if you won't be around is to put the house on fresh ice, don't drill any holes, and put it on blocks.  When people get into trouble is if it gets windy and they have open holes under the house, that rain starts blowing around on top of the ice, and starts swirling down into the holes under the house....that swirling water EATS ice, and can sink a house pretty quick.     As as far as the ice on the lakes, if you have 14-15 inches of good ice like most places around, you'll have no worries if you do what is posted above.

      Rented a sleeper out on Garrison Bay Sunday night with some friends. Fishing was slow but we managed a few walleyes. Best went 23" on the rattle reel. Was a lot of fun though, wish the bite could have been better. How is everyone else doing out there? Any good bites or has it pretty much slowed down for everyone.     Here is a video of the trip:

      I remember someone way back in the HSO/Fishingminnesota days caught this super huge walleye at night out on Cass. Some fish or tales of fish just stick with you, that was one of them. I've been thinking on which body of water I can hit around here after work for night bite. Cass crossed my mind today so I might give that a whirl sometime this week while we have this killer warm spell.  Keep in touch on here man, maybe we can dial them in.
