Crappies!

6 posts in this topic

I was up north this weekend at my parent's place and did a little crappie fishing. We had awesome luck. Almost all the fish we caught were over 12 inches! We let a lot go but kept a few to eat as well. Here are a few pics:

Thanks, nice fish too you as well. We let a few go too, the ones we did keep are the ones you see. All those fish were between 12"-13". The camera can do them alot of justice if you play the angle.

Nice work nate and knute. Beauties!

There's not much better than getting into a great crappie bite especially when the fish are 12+"

I'll be putting the crappie rod back in the boat and it will be staying there for a while now. It's a great time of year to go out and get'em

      It's been interesting. Like everyone, when you first discover these forums, you feel part of a small group and want to share everything. But then you realize the vast depth of the internet and how many people are actually seeing what you post. Then it's like whoa!  Once I saw the impacts first hand of what a popular thread did to a fishery it significantly changed my opinion on these forums. They are great, but tread lightly.   And yes, with the evolution fishing comforts, there has been an huge increase in pressure across the board. I just worry about lake trout the most because of the lack of info out there about them and the complete lack of management by the DNR. Every species seems to have a "group" pushing the DNR for increased management and educating the public. Lake trout don't have that. T.U. does a lot for stream trout, but nothing for lakers. Not sure where our trout stamp money is going anymore, aside for stocking rainbows and loopers. Seems there should be added attention on a few of the more popular lake trout lakes keeping tabs on them.

      Caught a 33 and 36" on the rocks this weekend. I've never been successful targeting them. But always seem to catch some here and there.

      Check out Raven Lake in Ontario. I've seen their ad in Outdoor News saying $240/week per person. I've been meaning to check this out and see what it includes as far as accommodations, boats etc.
