So there were 7 trailers at the Grey's bay landing

5 posts in this topic

when I drove by at around 2:15 or so today. I didn't have the boat with as I was "working". How did you guys do today? I'm kind of kicking myself. My 2nd office is about 4 minutes from the grey's bay landing and I'm over there more and more often these days. With the weather we have coming up, it's probably going to be next week before I get out. I should have done it today. frown.gif

Well, lets say it was the perfect day to be on the water. However, the fish weren't biting. No boat traffic, no wind, and nice warm air, compared to what we have had so far! I myself managed to catch one small walleye, a cigar, and one small crappie. Was trolling very slow with a beetle spin. Since water was frozen over in the am, water temps are too cold for crappies to be coming in shallows schooled up. They were scattered, and probably still deep. Will try today, weather permitting, and post results.

With this colder weather...what is the best depth to look for them Crappies until it warms up? somewhere between 8-10 feet?

Looking to hit Tonka on Thursday or Friday.

I'd guess they'd still be deeper, but I haven't made it out yet to test that. I'll be @ our Maple Grove office on Friday. Maybe I'll drag the boat with and head down after work.

      I often run into rusty crayfish when I'm in the boundary waters.  I tried to dig up some solid info on them but are they safe to eat? same as southern crayfish i wonder?  Suck the heads and everything?  It'd be a nice side for a pan full of fish in the BWCA.

      Maybe that's my problem, I'm not trying shallow enough.  Good report and hopefully I'll get a good report after my four day fishing outing this weekend.  Hoping accesses stay safe enough.  Wednesday night around 22-23:00 is supposed to start freezing and other then a few hours on Thursday and a few hours during the day on Monday we will be below freezing the next 10 days.  I just hope as its freezing people are not out there rutting up the ice and it can freeze smooth for safer travels.    BB did you do better with minnows/spoons/jigs/wax worms?
