crappie report from April 4-6

4 posts in this topic

Sorry this took so long, but I have been trying to get my pict.s to post with my report, and it's not working, so here is my report for Wed. through Fri. April 4-6. We went to rainy lake in search of scrictly catching crappies through the ice. Conditions were absolutely horrible with 30 mph north winds each day, and about a zero degree windchill. It was nearly impossible to fish, but we were prepared for the conditions and we drilled 100's of holes each day with our high speed gas drills until we found crappies. The baits that everyone said to use, ended up not catching much due to the fish being completely shut off with the weather. Most of the spots did not pan out either, but that's fishing.......we found our own spots, which is just the way it goes and that's what you have to do much of the time unless you are actually FISHING WITH someone who knows the area very well. Catching those beautiful crappies made all the holedrilling worth while. I would like to thank everyone who gave me tips for the trip. (Woody,Fishmiester,Tearin'Lips,UGUIDE,and SuperBlack.........and anyone else that I have missed). I would especially like to thank Woody's resort for the great accomodations that were second to none. Oh, and we also caught some really nice whitefish (up to 5 lbs.) and beautiful northern (up to 15 lbs.)

      The Bay is so different from the Lake.  The heavy breeze is keeping the lake open.  Things calm down Fri to Sun that will most likely freeze the lake over.  Then we get strong winds again on Mon to Wed that could likely blow it open again.  You may be able to fish the bay, but I am doubting the lake.  JMHO.  I can wait, but I am getting the itch.

      I have a 2015 21' Ice Castle RV that has two house batteries. I added the second to the house. It will run the furnace fan all night but it is running a lot slower by morning. There is a noticeable increase in fan speed when I start the generator in the morning. I am thinking of adding a third battery to the house to make up the difference.

      Any area ice reports? I'm hearing that most of the smaller bodies of water in the area have now frozen over. Should make it out sometime this weekend to try my luck . Good luck, and please stay safe
