Was up to Red last thursday thru saturday morning, 6 guys landed 8 crappies. We went out of Hillmans about 3.5 miles. I was wondering where people have been having luck lately? Which access and how far out?

I am also looking for the current scoop, are all accesses still open to truck traffic? Heading up in the morning. Thanks.

It is a day to day battle depending on weather, traffic, and even pressures. The ice is doing what the ice does in spring. It melts a little then refreezes then shifts around and melts some more, so on and so forth. The ice on the main currently is safe and stable, although the shoreline can get ugly quick. What normaly happens is the first hundred yard will get all kinds of wet and messy then once past that it is smooth sailing. ATVS and sleds are normally the best option. Also call ahead to the access you are using if you are unsure.

      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.

      Very weird. Those little worms in the garden do catch more than little 2-4 sunfish.
