They were biting a few days ago, but the overall size was small.

Be perpaired to pretty much walk accross the boats out there, you will have plenty of company. smirk.gif

If you want good crappie action closer to Fergus Falls, try Wall Lake.

My brother, who fishes the lake quite often, says there are lots of quality crappies there, some of them are pretty good sized too.

I was just down on the horseshoe chain.. fishin' over the weekend.. only caught bass and northern while trying after some crapppies... up here there's better size for fish anyway.. It's fun when they have that tournament down there every year.. I can't make it this year though... too busy..

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      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.
