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.

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      Thanks, shes a tough lake to keep stocked I think with the pressure it gets all summer.

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
