Starbuck Marina Crappies

12 posts in this topic

I was curious if the Crappies in the starbcuk marina would be there yet or do they typically wait until later in the year when the water warms up a bot more. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Ice-out the previous two years was April 10. With the early ice-out of April 1 this year and the really cold weather the past week, I'd say we're two weeks away yet from seeing good crappie action. The weather and temperatures will really dictate when they move into the shallow bays, etc. Right now it's too cold to even fish.

Corey, have they removed the road barriers from the parking lots at the Starbuck marina yet?

The concrete barriers have been taken down on the north side leading into the trailer park, but are still up on the south side leading to the public access.

I drove through the marina parking lot yesterday to check it out. It was a zoo! Probably at least 50 people fishing. Basically a person on every dock. I didn't see many fish being caught. Some small crappies and sunnies and a few big carp.

      There was random ice sheets all over the lake this morning.   Should be ice covered 100% barring it being to windy.   By Friday at the latest.   Could be ice fishing next week in certain areas.   Don

      Was up this past weekend, everything is still open. Should lock up this week though looking at the chilly forecast.

      An older gentleman I know gave me his ice fishing gear last year knowing he wasn't able to use it anymore due to health.  Really tore him up, as I'm sure it would for all of us.  Cleaned up the tipups real nice, and took this photo of one on Leech to send to him knowing they were in good hands and more importantly continue to catch fish!   I'm not in St.Cloud, nor want in for the contest just thought I'd share
