Crappie Fishing

7 posts in this topic

I'm from out of town and will be staying in Brainerd for the next 2 weeks.

I love to fish, and unfortunately only get out when I find someone else with a boat. I'd love to tag along if anyone has room for an afternoon or evening bite.

email me if you have room (weekdays only): golden_walleye@yahoo.com

next week should bring some active panfish into the shallows... a very good time to fish from shore. If someone brings you in the boat you may be right next to shore anyways.

Goldenwalleye,

You can have some great shore fishing at the Bar harbor docks, and also around the bridge on the Margaret channel (although I see they have tried to say some of it is private.)

How are they coming on Pelican? Are they up shallow yet?

If anyone know's of other areas from Shore for a crappie bite, let me know. I am really looking for fun, and I don't think the hotel would like me cleaning fish in the room. So C&R only.

The fish are around some of the Pelican areas too I believe.

Pelican was fairly hot last week off the docks. Has slowed down quite a bit. They got hit pretty hard though. Lots of males and sunnies.

      Buddy and I went out yesterday around noon. Fished for a few hours was a little windy but not to bad. Only got a small largemouth and one decent gill. Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.

      Kinda cold and windy yesterday. Fish really didn't seem to mind though. Finding ggod sized fish was the goal for the afternoon. Started off in a feeding bay that has a section of deeper water in it. This deeper water is where I found all my fish. Crappies were holding tight to the weed cover around the hole, while gills were closer to the surface. It wasn't fast fishing by any means, still I managed to find some real quality pannies

      I have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?
